Conveniently located and within a few minutes’ walk of the centre of the village, this lovely detached holiday house is an ideal base from which to explore and savour the delights of the Cotswolds, much of which is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. With the sparkling and swiftly flowing River Windrush racing through the broad expanse of village green, the ’Venice of the Cotswolds’ as Bourton is referred to, is a treat for visitors no matter what time of year. With its graceful low stone bridges spanning the small river at intervals, the centre of the village is picture postcard perfect throughout the seasons. The Roman road and the Fosse Way, is a major access route running across the area, taking the visitor from Moreton-in-Marsh in the north to Cirencester in the south. Local Bourton attractions include the Model Village, Motor Museum and Birdland. Blenheim Palace, Oxford, Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwick and Kenilworth castles are all within a comfortable drive, while the beautiful gardens of Kiftsgate Court and Hidcote Manor are near beautiful Chipping Campden. Enjoy cycling in the surrounding countryside - cycle hire available in the village. Horse riding nearby. Shop, pubs and restaurant 800 yards.
We booked this property for our annual ladies getaway weekend and we were not disappointed. From the moment we arrived Steve and Margaret made us feel so welcome. The house itself is lovely, plenty of room for everyone and spotlessly clean throughout. Little touches make it so much easier (like plenty of sticks, logs and coal for getting that cosy real fire going). There is plenty to see and do around the area and we had some lovely meals in the pretty village, which is about 20 mins walk away (we don't walk that fast). We even went to the weekly quiz in the Duke of Wellington pub on Sunday night, which was great. There is plenty of seating in the lounge for all 9 of us and although the kitchen isn't that big, it was perfectly adequate and well equipped. Some of us took a trip to Adams (from Countryfile) farm and others went to Stratford on Avon and other quaint places in the area, wandering round all the delightful shops. All in all, a really great place to stay and we would recommend this house unreservedly to anyone.
