This is our dream property overlooking our own lake. My husband Norm has been building it for almost 4 years and it is idyllic. We live next door. We are both runners.
Owner purchased this Apartment in 2015
Why Owner chose Bourton-on-the-Water
We have owned this lake for over 35 years and cannot believe that after all that time we now live here. It is our tranquil oasis in the middle of Bourton.
What makes this Apartment unique
Its location and amazing view. Great to watch the wildlife.

A peaceful, easy feeling!
Modern apartment with comfortable furnishings and a nicely appointed kitchen. We found everything we needed to make our stay very enjoyable. The peaceful view of the lake was a bonus and we enjoyed the mornings watching the water birds and the jumping fish. Alison was very kind and met us promptly upon our arrival to offer local suggestions around the area and to make sure we settled in nicely. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone heading to the Cotswolds for walking!
Nearest you will get to perfection
Absolutely stunning place, the apartment, the house and the lake deserve every credit due to the owners. The best compliment I can give is (I wish it was mine) 15 out of 10 is not enough
That is so lovely of you to give us such a fabulous review. It really makes us happy to know that you enjoyed your stay with us so much. Thank you so much.
Beautifully clean and spacious apartment overlooking picturesque lake
First time visiting the Cotswolds. We stayed for 5 nights and this apartment was a great base to explore the area. The apartment is modern, spacious and very clean, with great views of the ducks, heron and fish on the lake. There is patio furniture on a patio area which guests can use and we enjoyed relaxing there with a cup of tea, watching the wildlife. We even had hot air balloons floating over one day! The reclining settees in the apartment are very comfortable. Alison and Norm welcomed us and had thoughtfully provided milk and biscuits for our arrival. The kitchen was great for our holiday purposes. The shower is a good size - we couldn’t get the water temperature to be very hot but as the weather was hot we didn’t find the water temperature to be a problem. I’m sure Alison and Norm could have adjusted it if we had asked, but as we were happy with the water temperature in the hot weather, we didn’t bother to ask. We did find the bed very creaky and uncomfortable (which is the only reason why we haven’t given 5 stars) and I struggled to sleep a full night on the bed. However I know this is a matter of personal preference and may not be a issue to other visitors. Otherwise the apartment was a great place to stay and very comfortable. Also very light and airy due to the skylights. The apartment is in a great position and being able to park next to the apartment is very useful. We were able to leave our car there and walk into Bourton-On-The-Water, which is only a few minutes walk. Bourton-On-The-Water is a great base as it is a picturesque place with its many stone bridges over river and it is lovely to enjoy an ice cream whilst watching the ducks on the river. There are various places to eat - we had a lovely meal in the Rose Tree Restaurant. Also the ‘hidden’ outside eating area next to the river at the back of the Bakery On The Water is a great find. We also recommend the ‘hidden’ tearoom at the back of the old mill, next to the river, at Lower Slaughter, which Alison recommended (lovely cream teas!). We also recommend looking for the Cotswolds Pottery shop which is tucked away behind the Main Street in Bourton-On-The-Water, for local pottery ware. We had a very enjoyable stay - thank you!
I'm glad you had a nice stay, but sorry that you found the bed an issue. I actually ordered a new bed early in June, but despite constant chasing it has not turned up. I know this is of no help to you, but I am trying to get it replaced. It did have a new mattress when you stayed, but obviously that didn't make it OK for you. Like you say, other guests have found it very comfortable, but if it is not good for everyone, then we need to sort it. Thank you for letting me know. The shower temperature just needed turning up a bit on the thermostat.
An amazing weekend
Stayed for 2 nights at this wonderful property, just minutes from the centre of the village
The apartment is spacious and comfortable and overlooks a lovely lake where the fish often pop out of the water and is visited often by the Heron.
Last came to the village 15 years ago so was great to revisit happy memories of a truly beautiful village, would definitely recommend.
Thanks so much for your kind comments. Really glad you enjoyed your weekend.
We were greeted by Alison who showed us around and gave us information about things ,there was fresh milk and choclolate biscuits left for us a very nice touch.everything was lovely couldn't of asked for anymore so peaceful lovely break will definitely return .
Looking forward to visiting again.
I fell in love with the place as soon as I arrived at the house, also the sourrondings are awe-inspiring. Athough there are not many things to do at the village, Bourton on the water is a perfect place to get away from the crowdy and stressful city (London)and relax for a few days. We'll definitelly recommend it.
Thank you. Glad you enjoyed it and hopefully see you again.
