  • Amazing little space to escape to. The hut is beautifully decorated and has a good quality log burner. Comfy bed, cooking facilities in the hut, nice and clean. The hot tub was a bonus and made the evening and boring even better. Thanks Jeremy! See you soon :)

    Oliver2020-03-23T00:00:00Z
  • What a perfect little haven away from it all! Loved the peace and quiet of no tv or wifi. The old railway carriage is very cozy and has everything you need including tea, coffee and milk. Hot tub was awesome after dinner for some stargazing and still warm enough in the morning before breakfast. We will return👍

    Emma2020-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • Couldn’t be more perfect. Away from everyone and everything. A real chance to connect with nature and watch the stars in an evening soak in a log burner hot tub. Wish I had more time At the cabin.

    Amy2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely place to stay- we will be returning

    Becky2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • Really great stay the Rectory Retreat, it was the cutest cosiest place we have ever stayed! Loved it and didn’t want to leave- Winnie the dog had the best time too! Thank you for everything!

    Lauren2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • The Shepard’s hut was perfect for a quick weekend away. The hot tub was definitely the highlight, even in the rain. Cabin warms up very quickly after lighting the log burner. Bring flip flops/sliders for getting to and from the hot tub and toilet. Plough across the road do great food too. Thanks again!

    Ben2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely one night stay here and the hot tub was great, the cooking facilities were perfect and the fairy lights were a great touch! Great communication, would defiantly recommend.

    Bethanie2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • I would 100% recommend this place, and even come back again! Myself and 3 friends came to the Rectory Retreat as a get away for my birthday and as a general get away from the city. It was far beyond what we expected and loved every minute. From the moment we got there, Lisa had everything ready for us. She gave us a tour and explained how everything worked. They’re avid recyclers too!! Which was a plus. The hot tub is with an extra cost but split between myself and friends it was virtually nothing. Can’t thank Lisa and Jeremy enough for an amazing place to stay.

    Welcome to Chapel Cottage, brought to you exclusively by Character Cottages, local specialists in stylish, Cotswold holiday rentals. Chapel Cottage is a beautiful Grade II listed cottage, which dates back to the 17th century, and is located in the heart of the picturesque village of Bourton-on-the-Water. Known as the ‘Venice of the Cotswolds’, due to the River Windrush that flows peacefully though the village, Bourton has an abundance of attractions, including Birdland, the Cotswold Motor Museum, and the Model Village. There are also a wide range of traditional pubs, shops and restaurants, making Bourton perfect for guests of all ages. The village is surrounded by beautiful rolling countryside, and the many picturesque market towns and villages of the Cotswolds are all within easy reach, as are further afield places, such as Stratford-upon-Avon, Oxford and Bath. Important Customer Notice: - Special Events: Christmas, New Year and the Cheltenham Horse Racing Festival are Special Events, with bookings typically limited to weeks only from a specific start day If your dates don’t appear to fit, then please click Contact Host below to find out what options may exist for you!
    Chapel Cottage is a semi-detached cottage, located just off Bourton’s High Street. The front door is accessed via the cottage’s front garden, and opens directly into the living room, with the following rooms on the ground floor: Living/dining room: This characterful room has exposed oak beams, stone mullion windows, and a large Cotswold stone inglenook fireplace with a wood burning stove. There is a three seater and a two seater leather sofa plus a leather pouff, as well as a pretty window seat.Other facilities include a Smart TV with Netflix access, and a DAB radio with an iPod docking station. The dining area has a lovely flagstone floor, and contains an antique wooden dining table with four chairs and a window seat, which overlooks the front garden; Kitchen: A doorway leads through to the country-style kitchen, which overlooks the garden. This well presented room has an electric oven, four ring gas hob, fridge freezer, dishwasher, microwave, kettle and toaster. There is a stable door out from the kitchen to the courtyard garden at the back of the cottage. A steep, winding staircase leads up from the living room to the first floor landing, off which are the following rooms: Bedroom 1: A lovely room with whitewashed stone walls and oak beams, which contains a double bed, a chest of drawers with a mirror, and hooks to provide hanging space; Bedroom 2: Another stylish room, which contains a king size bed, and hooks to provide hanging space; Family bathroom: Contains a bath with overhead shower, toilet and wash basin.

    Bourton-on-the-Water is arguably one of the most popular villages of the Cotswolds, especially amongst overseas visitors. Having been nicknamed the "Venice of the Cotswolds", its scenery is the main draw for travellers. The River Windrush meanders through beautiful English countryside before passing over rapids next to the Old Mill and arriving at Bourton. The river is fed from many springs, with the source approximately ten miles from the village and, after flowing under the bridges of Bourton, it passes other villages before eventually joining the Thames. There are various attractions in the village, including the famous Birdland, which is home to a variety of birds from around the world. Here visitors can see parrots, pelicans, flamingos and penguins to name just a few, with experienced keepers feeding the birds and leading demonstrations. The Model Village is well worth a visit, as Bourton is the only village in the Cotswolds to have a one-ninth scale replica of itself. It is carefully maintained and has all of the characterful buildings including the Old Water Mill and the Old New Inn. Those lucky enough to witness snow in the winter months will notice photographers at the model village trying to get the perfect picture of the snowy scene. Another family favourite is the Dragonfly Maze. This yew maze leads visitors through the labyrinth, gathering clues in order to find the pavilion in the centre which enables them to unlock the final secret! The maze was constructed by Kit Williams, author of the golden hare treasure hunt book, "Masquerade". Food & Drink Bourton has a variety of places to eat and drink, including cafes, tea rooms, pubs and restaurants, with a range of prices to suit all budgets. The list below is a small sample of the options available: The Chester House Hotel and The Croft Restaurant (www.chesterhousehotel.com): Breakfast, morning coffee, lunches and evening meals in a riverside restaurant. You can enjoy freshly prepared, local produce throughout the day and night, with seasonal specials added to the menu daily. The Duke of Wellington (www.dukeofwellingtonbourton.co.uk): A local village inn aiming to provide fresh home cooked food with a friendly service. There is a light snacking menu, a full menu and a wonderful range of desserts and hot beverages. As well as daily home cooked specials, on Sundays you can enjoy a traditional carvery with all the trimmings from 12-6pm. The Mousetrap Inn (www.mousetrap-inn.com): A traditionally run Cotswold stone Inn, with a history dating back to the building of the railways in the 18th Century. Serving home-made food, along with fantastic, locally brewed real ales. The Village Restaurant & Tearooms (www.thevillagerestaurant.co.uk): Traditional, home cooked food in a friendly atmosphere, overlooking the river Windrush, in the heart of Bourton-on-the-Water.
  • Beautiful cottage in a beautiful town. Perfect for walking in to Bourton or for using as a base to travel from. Thank you very much!

    Oliver2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic cottage just off the high street in the middle of Bourton-on-the-Water. The cottage is very charming but should warn about the steep stairs! The bedrooms were cosy and the location can’t be matched. We had no problems checking in our out and communications with the host were very clear. Would definitely recommend if you don’t have mobility issues or giant suitcases.

    Maiko2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • It is lovely and warm. we have a wonderful time.

    Jiang2020-01-24T00:00:00Z
  • We’ve just returned home after a fabulous long weekend at Chapel Cottage. The house is beautiful, cosy and a perfect base for exploring The Cotswolds. Little touches like the chocolates were a welcome surprise with out first cuppa! Thank you to Carol & Nick for all the information provided and for letting us stay in this beautiful home. Precious memories made and we are already planning a return trip.

    Michelle2019-12-02T00:00:00Z
  • Chapel cottage is in a wonderful location. Stylish, decor throughout, all the amenities you could need and the beds have the most comfortable mattresses and soft linen.Cosy, comfortable. In the heart of the village if you want to explore, but once inside it feels so secluded. A really wonderful cottage.

    Mateja2019-11-22T00:00:00Z
  • Nick and Carol were so helpful and quick to respond if we had any questions during our stay. The cottage was so great, just as pretty as the pictures, and the cake on arrival was such a sweet touch. The notes that were sent beforehand were so helpful as well. Would definitely highly recommend. Bourton-on-the-Water was just slightly more touristy than we were hoping for.

    Georgina2019-11-15T00:00:00Z
  • This is a fantastic cottage in an idyllic setting, literally 2 minutes from the high street- This is a warm and cosy place and thoughtful touches make a stay here extra special.

    Timothy2019-11-08T00:00:00Z
  • A very tidy and lovely little cottage equipped with everything you need. The beds were very comfortable and the bathroom was clean and modern. Great location. We had a wonderful stay!

    Johan2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you so much my parents had a amazing time and have been recommending your place ever since they have been back. Couldn’t pick a fault at all from start to finish

  • Stayed here at the end of February, even though the weather wasn’t ideal (there was a storm this weekend!) we still got full use of the hut and hot tub. If you’re thinking of staying here the tub is a no brainer. It’s a wonderful escape from civilisation and we’re so glad we discovered it for our first Airbnb experience! Thank you to Lisa for meeting us and showing us how to find the hut and use the facilities, made us extremely comfortable staying here! Would highly recommend!

  • The Wash House is a wonderful cosy place for a short break away in the Cotswolds. It’s exceptionally comfortable and all the amenities you might need are provided for. Chris and Ali are fantastic hosts and there were some very thoughtful and welcoming touches for when we arrived. We would definitely stay again.

    Colin2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • The Wash House was a lovely place to stay - warm, cosy, beautiful location...and with delicious breakfast hamper provided. Chris was a lovely host - easy to communicate with and incredibly hospitable. Would highly recommend.

    Lucy2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful little stay at The Wash House. It had everything that was needed for a weekend get away. A perfect location for country walks and exploring the surrounding villages. Thank you for having us!

    Charlotte2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • This place is really satisfying. It's a central part of Cotswolds, so it's easy to get to any nearby city, but you'll have to drive through rural back roads, so be careful about driving. (In addition, everyone is fast, like Forza Horizon 4) But everything else is perfect. Clean and warm. At the end of February, I thought I could get it, but the heating is perfect. Beds and bedding are also comfortable. The lighting is also everywhere, so it's convenient and nice. The breakfast you provided was also very satisfying. If you're two, you'll have no regrets at all.

    hoseon2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • This stylish cottage was perfect for a little Cotwolds getaway I had with my friend. Chris met us on arrival and showed us round. The place was clean and cosy, with helpful leaflets and walking routes for the surrounding areas. The location was perfect and we had the best time! Thank you for a great stay.

    Molly2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • Had a fantastic stay at this little cottage for the 2nd time! Very cosy and pleasant stay, in a lovely little village, with great places nearby too! Chris is a lovely host and we were very happy 😊

    Daisy2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • The perfect little cottage for a lovely weekend away for two! Chris was very welcoming and the cottage as absolutely lovely and in a fabulous quiet location. I would definitely recommend and will likely be back myself. The breakfast basket was a lovely touch and the bed was unbelievably comfortable.

  • Ben was the most amazing host - he went above and beyond, was so kind to us and, of course, the house was incredible. Highly recommend.

    Hannah2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Ben and Mark were incredibly from the offset with clear instructions and communications. The house is beautiful and very much a home. There’s a range of great walks to take on in the surrounding area and plenty of info was provided around this. We ate in both nights and the kitchen and dining room is perfect for the no of guests. Upstairs is beautifully decorated and warm, will definitely be back

    Jamie2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • One of the most beautiful Air BNB's we have ever stayed in. Ben was a fantastic host, a lovely guy and he really goes above and beyond in every element to ensure you have the best stay possible. He was there to meet us when we arrived and gave us a tour around the house and how to use all of the facilities. The house is absolutely stunning and a lot of thought has gone into maintaining the original details of the house but with some modern touches such as the kitchen and bathroom. It was the perfect weekend getaway, I just wish we could have stayed for longer!

    Cat & Mike2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely weekend at Ben's place. It is very tastefully decorated and Ben has thought of everything you could possibly need or want. We enjoyed relaxing in front of the roaring log fire and everyone slept well in the super comfy beds. He was very helpful with lots of local restaurant suggestions for us to pre book. The location is peaceful and perfect for visiting lovely Cotswold villages. We were sorry to leave and would definitely return.

    Hazel2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • Stop looking, you've found the most stylish, warm and perfect 3-couple place in the Cotswolds. We couldn't have felt more stylishly at home in Ben's place - every detail is perfect and Ben is thoughtful and was always on hand with tips and suggestions.

    Emma2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Everything about this house was wonderful and I cannot recommend it highly enough. From the comfortable beds to the warm showers and roaring fire! It was above and beyond what we were looking for. An exceptional, beautiful property.

    Welcome to Court Hayes, brought to you exclusively by Character Cottages, local specialists in stylish, Cotswold holiday rentals. Court Hayes was originally two cottages, which have been lovingly restored, to create a large and interesting two bedroomed property. The Cotswold stone cottage sits in the picturesque and peaceful village of Wyck Rissington, across the road from the 800 year old St Laurence's church, where the famous composer, Gustav Holst, was the resident organist between 1892 and 1893. Court Hayes is perfectly placed for exploring the Cotswolds, whether by car or on foot, and is close to the beautiful market towns of Stow-on-the-Wold and Bourton-on-the-Water. Important Customer Notice: - Special Events: Christmas, New Year and the Cheltenham Horse Racing Festival are Special Events, with bookings typically limited to weeks only from a specific start day If your dates don’t appear to fit, then please click Contact Host below to find out what options may exist for you!
    Court Hayes front door opens into: Living room: A beautiful room, with an abundance of character. Contains a large inglenook fireplace, with a real fire, exposed stone walls, wooden beams and the original flagstone floor. There is a Freeview TV with DVD player, a writing desk and comfy seating for four guests. There is a lobby between the living room and the dining room, with a door out to the garden. Dining room: Contains another inglenook fireplace, with an ornamental stove, wooden floors and wooden beams. There is a dining table with seating for four; Kitchen: Accessed through the dining room, the new, well equipped kitchen contains a 4 ring electric hob, electric oven, dishwasher, microwave, fridge, freezer, washing machine, kettle and toaster. There is door out to the garden and a good sized pantry, which is also used as a cloakroom. The bedrooms are accessed via two different flights of stairs, one leading up from the living room to: Bedroom 1: A beautiful room, surrounded by exposed stone walls, wooden beams and a stone fireplace (not for use as a real fire). Contains a king size bed. Narrow stairs, with restricted height, lead up from bedroom 1 to: En-suite bathroom: In the eaves of the house, with exposed stone walls and wooden beams, contains a claw foot bath with shower attachment, basin and toilet.

    The Cotswolds are characterised by attractive small towns and villages, built of the underlying Cotswold stone (a yellow oolitic limestone). In the Middle Ages the wool trade made the Cotswolds prosperous and some of this money was put into the building of churches, leaving the area with a number of large handsome Cotswold stone "wool churches". The area remains affluent, which has encouraged the establishment of many high quality pubs, restaurants and antique shops.
  • Great property at great location

    Aryo2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Great cottage well located to all the other towns nearby!

    New2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay at the character cottage. The cottage had a really interesting design and the two rooms are quite far apart which was nice to have some extra privacy! The fireplace is absolutely beautiful and so is the location. There's lots of beautiful cottages on the same street with a beautiful church across the road. Only tip I would have is make sure you bring a blanket and some thick socks since it can get a little cold in the winter even with the fireplace. We would definitely stay again!

    Elizabeth2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • Gorgeous cottage! Truly delightful place with traditional charm, but all the modern comforts.

    Stephanie2020-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • Very cute cottage! We had a wonderful time. A few things to note (per my husband), the doorways on the first floor are quite low - he's 5'11" and hit his head numerous times, and the access to the bathroom on the top floor is awkward - at 5'6" I had to bend in half to get up the stairs. The stone walls hindered our baby monitor from reaching the whole house, but we expected that. It was lovely to get away from real life, and in such a cozy little cottage! Don't go expecting consistent wifi, but who needs it! Would definitely come back (if I could convince my husband's poor head!).

    Leigh2019-10-02T00:00:00Z
  • The cottage was terrific. Check was a breeze, everything was ready for us when we arrived. The cottage is very close to neighboring villages for shopping and many fine restaurants.

    Bruce2019-09-17T00:00:00Z
  • This was a nice place that comfortably housed four adults and a baby.

    Harriet2019-08-26T00:00:00Z
  • This cottage is very special! We have stayed at multiple places and this one is definitely at the top as one of our favorites! Every room has such charm - the stone walls, the black beams, the lamps with dimming switches, the artwork... everything! Our daughters loved their room with the vaulted ceiling and my husband and I enjoyed the master suite. We loved our dinners in the dining area and our breakfasts in the private garden! The location is so wonderful for a visit to the Cotswold. We had no idea how much we'd enjoy this area and how close we would be to so many of the towns! And then to return to the very quiet and quaint village of Wyck Rissington, away from all tourists, and go for evening walks was so peaceful. We hope to return to this wonderful place!

    Welcome to Bury Fields Cottage, brought to you exclusively by Character Cottages, local specialists in stylish, Cotswold holiday rentals. Bury Fields Cottage is a modern barn conversion and despite its rural appearance, the property is just a short walk from the centre of Bourton-on-the-Water, also known as the ‘Venice of the Cotswolds’, due to the River Windrush that flows peacefully though the village. Bourton has a wide range of traditional pubs, shops and restaurants and is surrounded by beautiful rolling countryside, and the many picturesque market towns and villages of the Cotswolds are all within easy reach, as are further afield places, such as Stratford-upon-Avon, Oxford and Bath. Important Customer Notice: - Special Events: Christmas, New Year and the Cheltenham Horse Racing Festival are Special Events, with bookings typically limited to weeks only from a specific start day If your dates don’t appear to fit, then please click Contact Host below to find out what options may exist for you!
    Bury Fields Cottage is located off a farm track, just a short walk from the centre of Bourton-on-the-Water. The front door opens directly into the main living area and the following rooms: Living/dining room/galley: This bright and airy space provides a comfortable and sociable living area and contains a sofa, two bucket armchairs, electric flame effect fire and a wall-mounted Smart TV. The wooden dining table comfortably seats four. A staircase leads up from the living room to a gallery, with two large bean bags, two wicker chairs and a bookcase with a selection of books and games; Kitchen: This space has been thoughtfully designed and features an electric oven with four-ring induction hob, a dishwasher, fridge/freezer, kettle, microwave, toaster and filter coffee machine; Master bedroom: This room contains either a super king size bed or two single beds, and a combined chest of drawers and wardrobe; Bedroom 2: Another lovely room featuring a double wooden bed and a built-in cupboard; Family bathroom: Contains a walk-in rain shower with handheld shower attachment, toilet, wash basin and heated towel rail; Utility cupboard: Contains a washing machine/tumble dryer.

    Bourton-on-the-Water is arguably one of the most popular villages of the Cotswolds, especially amongst overseas visitors. Having been nicknamed the "Venice of the Cotswolds", its scenery is the main draw for travellers. The River Windrush meanders through beautiful English countryside before passing over rapids next to the Old Mill and arriving at Bourton. The river is fed from many springs, with the source approximately ten miles from the village and, after flowing under the bridges of Bourton, it passes other villages before eventually joining the Thames. There are various attractions in the village, including the famous Birdland, which is home to a variety of birds from around the world. Here visitors can see parrots, pelicans, flamingos and penguins to name just a few, with experienced keepers feeding the birds and leading demonstrations. The Model Village is well worth a visit, as Bourton is the only village in the Cotswolds to have a one-ninth scale replica of itself. It is carefully maintained and has all of the characterful buildings including the Old Water Mill and the Old New Inn. Those lucky enough to witness snow in the winter months will notice photographers at the model village trying to get the perfect picture of the snowy scene. Another family favourite is the Dragonfly Maze. This yew maze leads visitors through the labyrinth, gathering clues in order to find the pavilion in the centre which enables them to unlock the final secret! The maze was constructed by Kit Williams, author of the golden hare treasure hunt book, "Masquerade". Food & Drink Bourton has a variety of places to eat and drink, including cafes, tea rooms, pubs and restaurants, with a range of prices to suit all budgets. The list below is a small sample of the options available: The Chester House Hotel and The Croft Restaurant (www.chesterhousehotel.com): Breakfast, morning coffee, lunches and evening meals in a riverside restaurant. You can enjoy freshly prepared, local produce throughout the day and night, with seasonal specials added to the menu daily. The Duke of Wellington (www.dukeofwellingtonbourton.co.uk): A local village inn aiming to provide fresh home cooked food with a friendly service. There is a light snacking menu, a full menu and a wonderful range of desserts and hot beverages. As well as daily home cooked specials, on Sundays you can enjoy a traditional carvery with all the trimmings from 12-6pm. The Mousetrap Inn (www.mousetrap-inn.com): A traditionally run Cotswold stone Inn, with a history dating back to the building of the railways in the 18th Century. Serving home-made food, along with fantastic, locally brewed real ales. The Village Restaurant & Tearooms (www.thevillagerestaurant.co.uk): Traditional, home cooked food in a friendly atmosphere, overlooking the river Windrush, in the heart of Bourton-on-the-Water.
  • Nice secluded spot with great privacy, yet only a 5min walk to the centre. House has everything you could need and great mezzanine to play board games, read or just look out across the grassy paddocks. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, excellent communication and hospitality lending us additional cooking equipment. Highly recommend and will be back.

  • Character Cottage is a beautiful 2 bedroom cottage right in the heart of Bourton on the Water. Waking to birds in the morning was delightful . It is very close to the Bakery , tea rooms next door and tourist information office 10metres away. Parking at front of house a big bonus. Loved our stay here and would highly recommend

    Robyn2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • North Cottage is perfectly located right in the middle of Bourton and is beautifully decorated throughout with comfortable bedrooms and a lovely modern but cosy open plan living and dining area. The bottle of wine on arrival was a lovely thoughtful touch. We would definitely stay again

  • Location is perfect! House is modern, clean, well decorated and has everything you need. The parking is great. The hosts are very helpful. Plus a travel cot, high chair and stair gate can be provided, great if you have a little one with you. We were sad to leave as such a lovely place to stay.

  • A lovely period cottage in the middle of the beautiful Bourton on the Water village. Short walking distance to everything in Bourton including restaurants, pubs, bakery and supermarket and nice walks. Lovely garden and good functional kitchen. Perfect for two couples or family. Highly recommended.

    Andrew2019-10-03T00:00:00Z
  • Book this lovely cottage if it's available! The instructions and self check-in was a snap, a bottle of wine and helpful tips were waiting on the table, milk in the fridge, coffee, tea and biscuits in the kitchen and a beautiful apple tree in the back yard (in September). You could not be any closer to the high street of Bourton-on-the-Water; a 30 second walk and you were feeding ducks on the river. Parking was right at your front door, too. The cottage was beautifully appointed with thoughtful and useful items throughout, and, more importantly, was sparkling clean. Everything was done in advance to make our 5 day stay idyllic! So glad we chose this as our base in the Cotswolds! Thanks to Michelle and everyone involved for our perfect lodging.

  • Great place to stay, really cosy and clean! The location was ideal and you can park at the cottage. Very beautiful!

    Nabeela2019-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful house in a lovely little village, be aware no village pub you do need to drive. Parking can be a bit tight especially for 2 'big' cars. Would definitely stay here again, fabulous location for exploring all the pretty villages and towns of the Cotswolds.

    Vanessa2019-07-22T00:00:00Z
  • The cottage is really lovely. The host was easy to communicate with and access was straight forward. We had a great stay.

    William2019-07-01T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at this property was wonderful. The house itself is beautiful, warm, comfortable and just exactly what we were hoping it would be. The location is fantastic for either heading out to explore in the car or for stretching your legs and walking into the neighbouring village of Bourton-on-the-Water. I can't recommend it highly enough.

    Katrina2018-04-02T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you, Character Cottages. Our stay in Little Rissington was brilliant - and accommodation/communication was exemplary, with nothing to fault. Do yourselves a favour and stay here!

    The Cotswolds are characterised by attractive small towns and villages, built of the underlying Cotswold stone (a yellow oolitic limestone). In the Middle Ages the wool trade made the Cotswolds prosperous and some of this money was put into the building of churches, leaving the area with a number of large handsome Cotswold stone "wool churches". The area remains affluent, which has encouraged the establishment of many high quality pubs, restaurants and antique shops.
  • The perfect cottage for exploring the Cotswolds. Spotlessly clean, a kitchen stocked with everything you could possibly need and a super comfy sofa! The cottage is within 10 minutes of some of the most beautiful Cotswold towns and villages and some fabulous pubs. We would highly recommend The Feathered Nest Inn for a special dinner - lovely atmosphere and amazing service. The Old Butchers in Stow-on-the-Wold is also a unique find with a brilliant selection of fish on the menu.

    Welcome to Middle Gable The Old Hall, brought to you exclusively by Character Cottages, local specialists in stylish, Cotswold holiday rentals. Middle Gable The Old Hall is one of the most picturesque and historic properties in the Cotswolds, forming part of an original 17th century manor house, dating from the time of the English Civil War, over 350 years ago. This grade II* listed property sits in peaceful gardens, in the heart of the famous Cotswolds market town of Bourton-on-the-Water, often referred to as the "Venice of the Cotswolds". This lovely town has numerous shops, restaurants and pubs, and is ideally located for exploring the entire Cotswolds region and beyond. Important Customer Notice: - Special Events: Christmas, New Year and the Cheltenham Horse Racing Festival are Special Events, with bookings typically limited to weeks only from a specific start day If your dates don’t appear to fit, then please click Contact Host below to find out what options may exist for you!
    Middle Gable The Old Hall is accessed via its garden, which leads to the beautiful wooden front door. Inside the house, a small entrance hall leads into: Living room: A grand room, which has been newly refurbished in a traditional style, enhancing the abundance of period features, including stone mullion windows, a large fireplace with wood-burning stove, wooden beams and a centuries old alcove. The refurbishment includes a limestone flagged floor, with underfloor heating, and the provision of a flat screen satellite TV and Blu-ray home theatre system with an iPod docking station. The living room then leads into the Inner Hall, which in turn leads to: Shower room: Contains a shower, basin and toilet; Kitchen/dining room: The kitchen is well equipped, including a cooker with hob, microwave, dishwasher, fridge, freezer and washer dryer. There is a good sized dining table, with five chairs, and the layout of the room ensures that all guests can socialise whilst cooking is in progress. Returning to the Inner Hall, a grand wooden staircase leads up to the first floor hallway, off which are: Bedroom 1: The initial highlight of the room is the spectacular super-king size four poster bed and this impressive room also has what is believed to be the original wooden flooring, stone mullion windows and the original “wig and gown” cupboard. There is a flat panel satellite TV in the room; Bathroom: Contains a bath with shower attachment, basin and toilet. The staircase then continues up into the gable of the house, giving access to: Bedroom 2: A very spacious, dual aspect eaves bedroom, with beautiful original wooden beams. The room contains three single beds, two of which can be pushed together and one of which doubles up as a sofa (it is a full size adult bed, however). Heading back downstairs and out of the front door, the lovingly cared for open plan gardens spread out in front of you. In Middle Gable The Old Hall’s garden, extending from the front of the house, there is a bench, for relaxing and looking out over all the gardens, as well as a paved seating area, which contains an outdoor table and chairs. At the end of the garden is a double garage for guest use.
    Bourton-on-the-Water is arguably one of the most popular villages of the Cotswolds, especially amongst overseas visitors. Having been nicknamed the "Venice of the Cotswolds", its scenery is the main draw for travellers. The River Windrush meanders through beautiful English countryside before passing over rapids next to the Old Mill and arriving at Bourton.
  • Middle Gable is the perfect home in the perfect location in Bourton on the water, everything in the town within a short walking distance. Bourton on the water itself is a great place as close to many other lovely villages in towns within the Costwolds. We stayed here just as a couple but would also be perfect as a family, as its plenty big enough with large kitchen/ diner and living room space. Log burner is a very nice touch in the winter. The bathrooms were very clean, the bed was very comfortable. The host called before arriving with very clear arrival instructions on the location and how to get into the property, and gave a lot of information about the town and surrounding area. Highly recommend staying here, our only regret was that we only booked 2 nights.

    Teddy2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at middle gable, perfect position, very comfortable, sparkling clean, would definitely recommend.

    Marie2020-01-10T00:00:00Z
  • Middle Gable is a beautiful house and the location right in the middle of Bourton-On-The-Water is superb. It is the most interesting old building which formed part of the old Manor House and dates back centuries. It was spotlessly clean and the beds were very comfortable. The directions from Cate got us there without issue and the parking for 3 cars was a great addition.

    Jocelyn2019-12-02T00:00:00Z
  • Middle Gable is a wonderfully appointed property whose location is excellent and within walking distance to all local amenities but yet is most private and quiet. I would strongly recommend this property anyone wishing to explore the Cotswolds.

    Edward2019-10-01T00:00:00Z
  • Very beautiful old house, said to have a history of 350 years, a beautiful large garden in front of the door, and a good location right in the center of the town. The neighbours next door are very welcoming, helping us to carry our luggage and pick up the keys. It is a very good stay experience.

    Wang2019-06-03T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful place to stay.

    Matthew2019-04-22T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful village and home to stay in. Staying at Middle Gable gives you the full experience of a small Cotswolds village. The location is perfect as everything is within a few minutes walk. The garden is beautiful and the neighbors, Ann and Steve, were so kind and helpful. The village people are so friendly and welcoming. We did suggest to the owners to provide a steamer as an iron was not available due to previous incidences at the home.

    Bourton-on-the-Water, Cotswolds, United Kingdom

    Surrounded by nothing but acres of fields filled with wildlife, College Farm Cottage is a charming 18th Century child- and dog-friendly* property, sleeping 3 guests in 2 bed-rooms with 1 bathroom. A short drive from the Cotswold towns of Burford and Lechlade, College Farm Cottage is perfect for guests seeking open space and tranquillity, with plenty of walking routes quite literally on your doorstep.
    *Dogs: Up to 2 well-behaved dogs are welcome at the cottage at an additional cost of £30 per dog. Please let us know if you will be bringing a dog(s) and we will then revise your booking confirmation. Introduction Low hedges, acres of flat green fields and an abundance of wildlife – these are the scenes that will greet you as you head towards College Farm Cottage. Situated on the expansive Bradwell Grove Estate, home to the Cotswold Wildlife Park, it’s hard to im-agine that you are only a few miles from Burford and Lechlade. As you make your way along the open fence-less lanes, you will almost feel as though you’re driving through the middle of the fields. Once you have arrived at the end of the farm track, you will find a delightful cottage with plenty of character – if you’re visiting in the summer months, you’ll even get to appreciate College Farm Cottage in all of its beautiful Wiste-ria–covered glory. College farm was built in 1771 by Trinity College of the University of Oxford for the use of tenant farmers as a source of additional income for the college. A working farm up until recent years, College Farm is now owned by the Bradwell Grove Estate, home to the nearby Cotswold Wildlife Park that exhibits over 260 different species of ani-mals – on a quiet day you may even be able to hear the lions roaring from the cottage! Although College Farm is no longer a working farm, it is surrounded by mainly arable farmland, all of which is organic. With a strong emphasis on conservation around the estate, there is plenty of wildlife to observe, from ground nesting birds to deer. You only have to step outside of the door at College Farm Cottage and you are right in the heart of unspoilt countryside, with bridle paths and walking routes running alongside the farmyard. Inside, the cottage is a lovely mix of traditional and new. The original flagstone flooring and woodburner add a touch of rustic charm, while there’s a new JVC Smart TV for guest use. Benefitting from a bright and airy feeling throughout, the cottage is decorat-ed in neutral tones, accented by quirky pops of colour and unique pieces of art and furniture. The back door opens out into a garden, while the windows boast views of nothing but green fields and the historic farmyard buildings. If you’re looking for peace, tranquillity and open starry skies, you’ve come to the right place. Despite its rural location, College Farm Cottage is just a 5-10 minute drive from the beautiful market town of Burford, where you will find artisan boutiques, cosy cafés, and interesting pubs. Walk to the top of the High Street and look back down the hill to enjoy one of the most exquisite views in the Cotswolds – and perhaps the finest ‘streetscape’ in England! Full Description Ground Floor Enter through the front door straight into the… Sitting Room A bright and spacious living space, the Sitting Room has a wonderful quintessential country cottage feel to it. Painted in fresh cream and white tones, the room has a cosy feel thanks to a corner lamp and its central feature, the woodburning stove. Set in the original fireplace, guests are welcome to use the woodburner, with a basket of logs provided. The original flagstone flooring is a characterful feature of this property, eve-ry stone is individual and unique. The Sitting Room boasts some beautiful pieces of furniture and artwork, adding eccentric and colourful highlights to a lovely relaxing room. There is a JVC Smart TV for guests to use, as well as a selection of books and games on the built-in shelves next to the fireplace. The WIFI router can be found in the Sitting Room window. To the left of the entrance to the Kitchen there is a latched cupboard. In here you will find an ironing board, iron, high chair, clothes airer and a mop & bucket. Through the door into the… Kitchen A well-equipped and pretty room, the Kitchen has a table and seating for 3 guests. En-joy breakfast looking out through the mustard yellow linen curtained window into the farmyard and fields beyond. With a cooker, toaster, kettle, fridge/freezer, oven, wash-ing machine, and cupboard filled with crockery and utensils, guests staying at College Farm Cottage are completely set up for cooking and dining in. There is a door leading from the Kitchen into the garden to the rear of the cottage. Through the Sitting Room and up the stairs. Please take care on the stairs as they are very steep and narrow. Into the upstairs hall and turn right into… First Floor The Master Bedroom A simple and sophisticated room decorated in neutral tones with colourful features, this exceptionally large and spacious bedroom is the perfect place for a peaceful night’s sleep in the heart of the countryside. With a comfortable king size bed and its own washbasin, guests staying in the Master Bedroom will appreciate the generous storage space provided by the built-in shelved wardrobe (where the travel cot is stored) and chest of drawers, as well as the beautiful views over the farmyard and fields. The cupboard next to the bed contains the water heater. Turn right into the… Single Bedroom Perfect for children, this compact single bedroom has plenty of storage thanks to the inbuilt wardrobe, and a comfortable single bed right next to the window overlooking the farmyard and fields beyond. Turn right into the… Family Bathroom The bathroom offers guests a bath with a fixed overhead shower, toilet and washbasin with one of the loveliest views in the cottage! Outside The garden of College Farm Cottage can be accessed via the back door from the Kitch-en. A great space for children to play or to even enjoy a BBQ or drink in the sun, the private garden is a beautiful place to relax and enjoy the tranquillity of the country-side, except for maybe the occasional lion roar…
    Benefitting from the best of both worlds, College Farm Cottage enjoys a secluded location but is also the perfect location for exploring Burford and the wider Cotswolds. Please see the framed OS map in the sitting room where College Farm sits exactly cen-trally. In just a 5-10 minute drive you will find yourself on the High Street of Burford, a stunning medieval market town with plenty to offer. The excellent Co-operative su-permarket on the High Street stocks all immediate shopping requirements and is open 7am – 10pm every day of the week. There is also a Co-operative supermarket in Lech-lade, a 5-10 minute drive in the opposite direction to Burford, open 8am-8pm every day. There are some great cafés in Burford. Head towards the historic church and you will discover the newly built Warwick Hall and café, ideal for a morning coffee and snacks. Another good spot for a reviving cup of coffee or tea is Lynwood & Co on the High Street, where you can also buy delicious local artisan-made Sourdough bread and of course the famous Huffkins tea shop. If you find yourself parking in the main car park for Burford near the church (free parking) you will cross the mill-race connecting to the charming River Windrush that meanders through the Cotswolds, a lovely spot to feed the ducks and swans! Burford used to be a major coaching town between London and the West Country and was home to 35 coaching inns! The town still retains 13 pubs, of which some favour-ites are The Angel, a very good gastropub, The Highway and The Lamb on Sheep Street. There’s also a great variety of specialist shops to explore – including Maggie White and the fascinating Tolsey Museum. Alternatively, The Victoria in Eastleach, a very pretty Cotswold village nearby, is about an hour walk from the cottage and is a wonderful pub with good food, recommended by Emma and William. Also highly recommended - The Five Alls in Filkins and The Bell in Langford, both excellent pubs. All are popular so booking is essential. Around 5 miles south of the cottage, you will find Lechlade-on-Thames, a small historic town on the Thames, from which London could be reached by boat. With plenty of walks, a thriving market square, pubs, cafes and antique shops, Lechlade is slightly off the beaten tourist track compared to Burford and makes for a great day out. Here you will find a fantastic butcher, Cutler & Bayliss, selling high quality meat, cheese, fresh vegetables and bread as well as another Lynwood & Co café. If you fancy exploring a bit further afield, the beautiful ancient Roman market town of Cirencester is about 10 miles south and also there’s Witney which is an easy 11-mile drive east towards Oxford. Like Cirencester it has a great array of high street shops, larger supermarkets such as M&S, Waitrose and Sainsbury’s, eateries and a modern cinema complex. Also, around 15 miles away is the renowned Daylesford Organic Farm in Kingham, a farm complex that offers a farm shop, restaurant, spa as well as other activities such as farm tours and cooking courses. See the Burford Guidebook for further information.

  • Definitely recommend this place, it’s lovely and snug: all very picturesque and exactly up the street of any cotswold tourists looking for a countryside idyll. Great location near lots of great villages, towns and Oxford. Clean, charismatic, an incredibly comfy bed. Just the January pick-me-up we were after.

    Ella2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful time staying at the cottage, which was just what we needed. The setting was very scenic, and we enjoyed the using the wood burner in the living room, which helped with the cold weather! It was also lovely to explore the historic town of Burford nearby.

    Bourton-on-the-Water is arguably one of the most popular villages of the Cotswolds, especially amongst overseas visitors.

The River Windrush meanders through beautiful English countryside before passing over rapids next to the Old Mill and arriving at Bourton. The river is fed from many springs, with the source approximately ten miles from the village and, after flowing under the bridges of Bourton, it passes other villages before eventually joining the Thames. There are various attractions in the village, including the famous Birdland, which is home to a variety of birds from around the world. Here visitors can see parrots, pelicans, flamingos and penguins to name just a few, with experienced keepers feeding the birds and leading demonstrations. The Model Village is well worth a visit, as Bourton is the only village in the Cotswolds to have a one-ninth scale replica of itself. It is carefully maintained and has all of the characterful buildings including the Old Water Mill and the Old New Inn. Those lucky enough to witness snow in the winter months will notice photographers at the model village trying to get the perfect picture of the snowy scene.
  • Oh My Goodness! Pear-Tree-Cottage is exquisite!! Beautifully furnished, warm, comfortable and with everything you could possibly need.

Thankyou Pear-Tree-Cottage for an unforgettable holiday! xx

  • The house gave us a true Cotswold experience. There was so much character from the stunning raffters in the roof, the well and many more little crannies through out the house. The beds were divine. Had one of the best sleeps. The sitting room was perfect for my family of 6 or sit around chatting into the late hours of the night. Also, we didn’t need our car all weekend because the house is right in Burton-on-water.

  • Really fantastic location and a great stay. The host was super easy to contact and really friendly. Would definitely recommend!

    Charlotte2019-09-23T00:00:00Z
  • We absolutely adored our stay at Pear Tree Cottage. The home is cozy and inviting. My 3 year old thought she was living in a real life fairy tale! The host also provided a travel crib for our 5 month old and a high chair. Everything was spotlessly clean. The beds had huge fluffy pillows and comforters. We used the washer/dryer & dishwasher several times - both great to have on hand. The location cannot be beat - on a quiet street just steps from shops, pubs, and restaurants. Free/easy parking out front. Additionally, the host allowed us to arrive early on our first day, after a very early flight into Heathrow. This was a major help & we were so grateful. We would absolutely stay again!

  • Lovely lovely house, had all we needed...we were 5 Adults a tot and 2 babies had room for all... really good location

    Limor2019-04-28T00:00:00Z
  • The house is very centrally located and is quintessentially English. A few low ceilings are far outweighed by a modern kitchen, tasteful and comfortable furniture, and spotless cleanliness. The house is warm and cozy, so much so that we never felt the need to light the log burner. We cooked several meals and found the kitchen very well equipped. We also loved the coffee, tea and biscuits that were left for our arrival. The house has a very clear instruction book that we referred to several times!

    Ben2019-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • This was a truly wonderful stay in a sweet cottage, tucked behind the main Cotswold village street, overlooking a small garden and pottery shop. Everything was provided and beautifully clean. Highly recommend to those wanting a quiet weekend.

    This is a detached conversion which you have to yourselves. The beautifully renovated Grade II Listed stable, in a quintessential Cotswold village, has a cosy fire in a spacious living area. There's a large bedroom with wardrobe, and a modern ensuite shower. Local walks are on the doorstep, close to attractions such as Sherborne Park (National Trust), Burford, Bibury and Stone Barn.
    Underfloor heating downstairs, and woodburner with a basket of wood provided. Tea, coffee, milk and snacks are provided in the kitchen. There is a microwave for cooking (no oven or hob) but we can cook meals for you and deliver to the door during the Corona crisis. We recommend cookfood.net.
    Fabulous local shop/tea room in the next village. Pub also within walking distance.
  • A lovely property in a lovely location! A perfect place for a weekend escape.

    Sarah2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • Josephine’s barn was the perfect place for our last minute weekend getaway. It is much bigger than the pictures suggest and beautiful appointed. It’s a very short drive away from some lovey walks and picturesque Cotswold villages. Would definitely recommend!

  • We had a lovely long weekend break at Daisy’s Cottage. Kate greeted us on arrival and provided a few essentials for the coming days, including some yummy fresh eggs from her chickens. The cottage had everything we needed for a nice break, plenty of information on local attractions and a great pub a stones throw away. We look forward to returning at some point in the future!

    Annette2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely stay. Enjoyed the local guide. Lovely cozy cottage. Thank you.

    Charlotte2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Kate’s place was amazing! From the thoughtful touches of having delicious eggs from her chickens at check in to the beautiful grounds it was all I wanted in a Cotswolds holiday and more! Perfect spot for quick day trips as well as a comfy place to hibernate a bit if that’s what you are looking for. The town is small so it was great to just pop down for a walk when the sun would come out. All around a great time that we will never forget!

    Alison2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Had a wonderful time at the cottage, such a nice place. Really enjoyed the peace and quiet and Kate&Richard were great hosts, super helpful and lovely! Highly recommended and I will definitely come back!

  • Very nice flat, area and room beautiful, very good recommendation

    Yanssy2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • A great place to stay for a short break. Really clean and very well equipped. Located in a quiet and small village, that is very accessible from the A40 and about a 10 minute drive to Burford (where there is free parking!). Would highly recommend the ‘Inn for All Seasons’ which has an especially great fish menu. We had a lovely time and would definitely stay there again.

    Becca2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Elder mews is a little gem of a place. Fantastic views looking out over the countryside. The studio was sparkling clean and warm. A car is a must as the local supermarket is a short drive away.

    Connor2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Great location, very clean, nice big apartment with everything necessary to spend a few days. It is in a beautiful, peaceful setting- but not too far from shopping and great restaurants! Nice central location in the Cotswalds, perfect for exploring the area. Highly recommend!

    Kristi2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic place to stay in the Cotswolds. Not too far to get to Burford and, if you love a country pub, The Fox Inn is just a short walk away. Great walks, lovely scenery, perfect way to see in the New Year.

    Harry2020-01-01T00:00:00Z

    The Barn is situated in the beautiful Cotswold village of Windrush which is on the borders of Oxfordshire and Gloucestershire. The Barn was converted into a detached house in the 1970s. There are many walks close by including the Cotswold Way. We are the next village along from the beautiful Sherborn Estate, where Springwatch and Autumn watch were filmed. I have one double bedroom with double bed with private bathroom. There is free parking.
    The Barn is situated on the edge of the village of Windrush. It is very quiet and tranquil. There are far reaching views from the house and garden. It would make an ideal retreat for artists. It is close to the beautiful Cotswold town of Burford and only 3.1 miles away from Stone Barn a popular wedding venue. It is 1 mile off the A40 which makes it ideal for sightseeing around Oxfordshire and Gloucestershire. We are only 20 miles from the famous Cheltenham Race course. We are 8 miles from Bourton on the Water otherwise known as the Little Venice of the Cotswolds.
    Windrush is a beautiful Cotswold village with a church and a village hall where many functions are held. The National Trust Sherborne Estate is one mile away where there is a thriving shop with a cafe which sells delicious coffee and cakes. There are walks all over Sherborne Estate. There is a Pub at Little Barrington which is one mile away which serves delicious food.
  • The location of Jackie's place is in the beautiful Cotswold area. There are a couple of villages nearby in easy walking distance that are really charming. You feel immersed in the serenity of the Cotswold countryside. Jackie is very welcoming and accommodating. We highly recommend her place.

    Angel2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • Jackie's home is beautifully situated with fantastic views over the surrounding countryside. The bed was super comfy, great shower and we were made to feel very much at home. Jackie was flexible around our check in timing which made our weekend very much easier to manage.

    Amy2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • We could not recommend this place more highly. The house was beautiful, quaint and clean and the room comfy and beautifully cosy. The real gem in this experience, however, was Jackie who is a fabulous and gracious host! Nothing was too much trouble, but the highlight for us was getting to share breakfast with her as we chatted with her about all aspects of life, which was really wonderful! We’ll definitely be making another visit not only for the house and wealth of things to do in the area but for the lovely hostess with the mostest! Thank you, Jackie!

    Nathaniel2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • We had such a wonderful stay. Thank you Jackie for going to extra mile for your guests.

    Church Cottage is a beautifully preserved Cotswold home, with original features that seamlessly blend with contemporary comforts. The cottage sleeps 6 guests across 3 bedrooms, with 2 bathrooms, and a downstairs WC. In the heart of beautiful Burford, Church Cottage has layers of history, curiosities and unique craftsmanship, including a wood-burning stove. The cottage has a large, secluded garden and a sunny Rose Terrace, plus off-road parking for 1 car, with additional street parking nearby.
    Full Description Ground Floor Entrance Hall and downstairs WC Step through the red front door into the entrance hall, a compact space, but with plenty of room for coats, umbrellas, boots and shoes. Above is a Victorian clothes-drying rack, operated on a pulley system, with the rope wound around the hook on the wall - providing an efficient and environmentally friendly way to dry clothes. Open the door to your left and you will find the downstairs WC and washbasin, situated in the old ‘privy’. Take one step up through to the: Kitchen The well-equipped kitchen is a light and airy space filled with beautiful original features, such as the tiled flooring and half-size Belfast sink. The super-efficient ‘Everhot’ range cooker will be warm and ready to use and is fantastic for baking and drying alike! The row of cream cupboards opposite the cooker cleverly hides a separate fridge and freezer, individual bins, washing machine and dishwasher. The tall cupboard next to the door to the sitting room contains the microwave, and a full range of plates, glasses and cooking equipment. Before moving on into the sitting room, take a moment to study Clare’s collection of vintage tins in the glass fronted cabinet. With some tins dating from the early 1900s, this unique collection is the culmination of a lifelong hobby for Clare. Which one is your favourite? Through to the: Sitting Room A wonderfully cosy living space, this room is the heart of the cottage, with original painted wooden floorboards and beams, cheerful floral curtains, warm bright furniture including two armchairs a three-seater sofa. An inviting wood-burning stove sits proudly in the original brick fireplace, framed by oak bookcases handmade in Witney containing a selection of novels, reference and guide books. The perfect place to curl up next to the fire with a book in hand or snuggle down to watch the new ‘Smart’ television, located in the antique pine corner cupboard, along with a DVD player, Bluetooth speaker and a selection of games and puzzles. The room is very well lit, with subtle spotlights adding a touch of modernity while ensuring that the cottage never feels dark. (TV and DVD player instructions are in the ‘Owners’ Notes’.) French windows in the Sitting Room lead to the garden. Head through to the Dining Room via the cottage’s original front door: Dining Room The first thing that may strike you about this room is its spaciousness; for a compact cottage, this generously sized dining area provides plenty of space for entertaining. This is the newer part of the house, added in 2002, though it blends in seamlessly with the original style of the cottage. A fresh, light room with shelves displaying more gorgeous ceramics and original paintings, and of course, the centre piece of the room, a large dining table with ample room and seating for six. In the far-left corner you will notice a piece of furniture from a bygone era, a lovely antique headteacher’s desk. If you fancy some al fresco dining, the French windows take you directly out onto the sheltered Rose Terrace, with its truly stunning view of the magnificent west end of Burford Church. Head back into the Sitting Room to the left-hand corner where a door opens to traditional cottage stairs leading up to the bedrooms and bathrooms: Upstairs Upstairs Landing Once you are at the top of the stairs - take care as they are quite steep - you will reach the landing where you will find a wide wooden worktop that stretches the length of the landing. On top of the worktop there is a travel cot, baby changing mat and a little step that may be useful for teeth-brushing! Through the door on the right at the top of the stairs to the: Bathroom A bright and compact bathroom, with a gorgeous, original 1930’s bathtub with attached shower hose, W.C. and wash basin. Please note: the shower fitting is not suitable for use as a stand-up shower but is fine for sitting/in-bath use and hair washing. Enter the next door opposite the stairs into the: Double Bedroom With its soft, pastel-coloured walls and furnishings and comfortable ‘Queen-size’ double bed, it’s hard not to feel cosy in this charming bedroom with its sloping ceiling. There’s also plenty of space and storage, with two bedside tables with drawers, a chair, a lovely vintage pine chest of drawers, and a small hanging cupboard inside the door on the left-hand side next to the bed. This bedroom has a lovely view over the gardens and rooftops of old Burford. Further along the landing on the right and into the: Twin Bedroom Set up as a children’s bedroom, this charming room is sure to enchant all ages. Two comfortable single beds line either side of the room, with a large vintage pine chest of drawers between the beds. Above the chest of drawers hangs a captivating illustration of a rabbit family guaranteed to delight young guests, while the quaint little fireplace (not working) and patchwork curtains all add to the appeal of this cheerful twin room. On to the end of the passage and into the: Master Bedroom with En Suite Complete with two 1940’s chests of drawers, bedside tables and modern radio – the master bedroom is full of thoughtful touches. Lie back on the king-size bed and look to the ceiling: you’ll notice the lucky horseshoe fixed up above you, this came from the original front door of the cottage! The ensuite shower room has a walk-in shower, WC, wash basin and adorable little cubby holes for storage. This room has a fabulous view of the church and the cottage’s Rose Terrace below. The elegant converted gas streetlamp just outside the entrance to the churchyard adds a romantic glow to the Rose Terrace at night, and if you leave your windows open on a summer evening you will enjoy the scent of the roses in the bedroom! Outside Garden The garden of Church Cottage will take you completely by surprise. You will notice hints of what’s to come through the garden gate in the pretty raised border in the parking area. As well as providing complete privacy from Lawrence Lane and public view it is also totally secure garden, making it a wonderful place for children to play. As the cottage is south facing, the garden really benefits from the summer sun. It has fantastic views of the Church, and the most beautiful blooms of flowers along the long high stone wall during the spring and summer months. Plenty of outdoor seating is provided, including two benches, two chairs and a table, and a further bench tucked under an arch covered with clematis and roses. Please note: The ‘garden house’ at the near end of the garden is locked and not for guests’ use. However, guests are welcome to use the veranda and the chairs. If you smoke, then this is a good covered smoking area – with a perfect view of the Church. Rose Terrace At the end of the house closest to the Church, you will find the walled, sheltered and sunny Rose Terrace, accessed from the dining room or the side gate in the garden. This beautiful paved space is a real sun trap, and wonderful for al fresco dining, with an outdoor dining table that seats six, as well as a bench. Relax in this private paradise as you sit amongst the flourishing roses, ancient holly tree, and an apple tree that is probably older than the cottage itself! (Make the most of the sun in this area by using the retractable washing line fixed next to the door from the garden to dry your laundry!) Shed in parking area Opposite the red front door, you will see a small lockable shed. This is where the outdoor bins are kept. It also has some hooks - great for suitcase storage - and it is a good place for deliveries to be left. The key to the shed hangs on the overhead hooks in the kitchen entrance.  
    Although tucked away down a peaceful lane, Church Cottage is the perfect location for exploring Burford and the wider Cotswolds. In just a few paces you will find yourself at the bottom of the famous High Street of Burford, perfect for exploring everything that this stunning medieval market town has to offer. The excellent Co-Operative supermarket is a three-minute walk from the cottage and stocks all immediate shopping requirements, with a great wine selection. It’s open 7am – 10pm every day of the week. There are some great cafés in Burford, if you turn left out of Church Cottage and head towards the Church, you will discover the newly built Warwick Hall and café, ideal for a morning coffee and snacks. Another good spot for a reviving cup of coffee or tea is Linwoods on the High Street, where you can also buy delicious local artisan-made Sourdough bread. If you walk towards the main car park from Church Cottage you will cross the mill-race connecting to the charming River Windrush that meanders through the Cotswolds, a lovely spot to feed the ducks and swans! Burford used to be a major coaching town between London and the West Country and was home to 35 coaching inns! The town still retains 13 pubs, all within walking distance of the cottage, of which our favourites are ‘The Angel’, a very good gastropub, and ‘The Highway’. There’s also a great variety of specialist shops to explore and a visit to the fascinating Tolsey Museum. If you fancy exploring a bit further afield, Witney is an easy 10-mile drive east towards Oxford, and has a great array of high street shops, larger supermarkets such as M&S, Waitrose and Sainsbury’s, eateries and a modern cinema complex. Also, around 10 miles away is the renowned Daylesford Organic Farm in Kingham, a farm complex that offers a farm shop, restaurant, spa as well as other activities such as farm tours and cooking courses. See the Burford Guidebook for further information.
  • Stunning home. Great charm. Brilliant location. Loved the sounds of the church bells. The coffee and biscuits on arrival. Spotless. Wonderful outdoor space - all enclosed - so very safe for our toddler to run around. Charming hidden parts of the garden too. Only negative comment would be the sofas. Not comfy at all. Can feel the wood through the cushions. But a really lovely stay and would definitely come back!

    Ruth2019-09-23T00:00:00Z
  • An immaculate place to stay, warm and cosy, great location with lots of space. Perfect for the family.

    Adeel2019-09-18T00:00:00Z
  • The Church Cottage was perfect! We spent the first part of our trip in England exploring the Cotswolds, and staying in Burford was a great decision. It was central to everything and the town itself was great to explore. The cottage is located right off of the main street through town and incredibly close to restaurants, pubs and shops. The Church Cottage itself fit our family of five well (two parents, 1 adult child, 1 teenager, 1 child). We didn't spend a lot of down time at the house as we were out most of every day, but the house was comfortable and charming, and had all the amenities of home. It was a great space to explore and we loved the proximity to everything!

    Erin2019-08-16T00:00:00Z

    Dan2019-06-10T00:00:00Z

    Burford is twenty miles west of Oxford and is considered the southern gateway to the Cotswolds. It is a beautiful old Cotswold town, famous for its sloping High Street, which runs down from the high Wolds, with beautiful views over the open countryside, to the willow fringed River Windrush, in the pretty Windrush valley. A fine three arched medieval bridge crosses the river at the foot of the hill. In Anglo-Saxon times, Burford was the site of a fortified ford on the river Windrush. The town grew to be an important crossroads and a wealthy wool town, which is very popular with visitors today. The broad main street is lined with dignified old houses, ancient cottages and many shops, all of which appear little changed since Tudor times, as witnessed by the precarious angles the buildings have come to rest at. There are wonderful little side streets to explore, as well as many old pubs, cafes and antique shops. The 15th century parish church of St. John Baptist is magnificent and is another sign of the wealth that the wool trade generated for the town. Food & Drink Burford has numerous places to eat and drink, with a range of cuisines and prices to suit most tastes and budgets. The list below is a small sample of the range of options available: The Bull at Burford (www.bullatburford.co.uk): The Brasserie at the Bull at Burford is a gourmet delight. According to the seasons, specialties range from the chefs homemade pork terrine or Asian seafood stew for starters to hanging kebab skewer specials to medallions of venison. Of the desserts the trio of caramel and the seasonal Eton mess are already a favourite on the menu. Since opening in June 2010, the Brasserie has been given 2 AA rosettes for Culinary Excellence and a special AA Breakfast Award; The Mermaid (www.themermaidburford.co.uk): Spanning two floors, this charming and charismatic restaurant maintains the original 18th century architecture, complete with traditional stone features and fireplaces, and old wooden beams and fittings. If you're a fan of intimate dining, you'll love the candlelit atmosphere upstairs, whilst there is also a conservatory area perfect for large families, and additional space in the general bar area. A varied menu is offered in the restaurant, with homemade food to suit all preferences and dietary persuasions. The award-winning bar has a range of excellent beers and local ales. Three real ales are always available, along with a changing guest ale.

    Welcome to Swan View, brought to you exclusively by Character Cottages, local specialists in stylish, Cotswold holiday rentals. Swan View is a beautiful Cotswold stone cottage, set in the heart of the charming village of Southrop, surrounded by the stunning Cotswolds countryside. The River Leach runs past the village and there are an abundance of walks from the doorstep of the cottage. Southrop is also fortunate to have a very well regarded country pub, and is well placed for exploring the wider Cotswold region, with Burford, the “gateway to the Cotswolds” close by, and Cirencester, the largest market town in the Cotswolds, just 12 miles away. Slightly further afield places, such as Bath, Oxford and Stratford-upon-Avon are within easy reach, and day trips to London are also possible.

There is also a SMART TV with a Blu-ray player, and an iPod dock; Dining room: A lovely room, which looks out through the conservatory to the garden, and contains a large wooden table with seating for up to eight; Conservatory: Double doors from the dining room open into a bright conservatory, with exposed Cotswold stone walls, which is perfect to sit in on a summer evening, watching the sun set from the rattan sofa and two chairs.

    The Cotswolds are characterised by attractive small towns and villages, built of the underlying Cotswold stone (a yellow oolitic limestone). In the Middle Ages the wool trade made the Cotswolds prosperous and some of this money was put into the building of churches, leaving the area with a number of large handsome Cotswold stone "wool churches". The area remains affluent, which has encouraged the establishment of many high quality pubs, restaurants and antique shops.
  • Nice cottage in an ideal location for exploring the Cotswolds.

  • Myself and Kevin stayed at the Annexe this weekend and we had the most perfect stay. The Annexe is clean, comfortable and cosy. We loved the calm surroundings and enjoyed walks to the local areas. Gill was a fantastic host and gave us help tips on what to do while we were in the Cotswolds. We would highly recommend staying here. Thank you again Gill.

    Kevin2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect little space in the cotswolds, sparklingly clean and close to the town of Stow.

    Glen2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay. The house is on a farm and we had our own entrance which was nice. Gill was hands off but caring which was perfect. Would definitely recommend!

    Sidney2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Gill's annexe is perfect for a weekend away. It has everything you could need and is exactly as photographed and described. It is so cosy and brilliant value for the Cotswolds. We had a lovely stay and would definitely recommend!

    Planters Studio is a delightful countryside retreat, its 1st floor galleried bedroom & bathroom has an exceptionally comfortable cast iron 4-poster double bed within an oak framed roof - certainly romantic, light and airy. Downstairs is a modern fully equipped kitchen, eating and sitting area including a sofa bed. A Welcome Pack is provided. The Studio has its own front door, patio garden & BBQ, with off road parking. A cot is available on request. Dogs/pets are welcome - charge £5/night/pet.
    Guests regularly comment in our guest book that the Studio is comfortable, very well furnished and equipped. The Studio is private and, only if needed, we are near bye to help in any way. The Studio is in a 'Golden Triangle' of rolling Cotswold, largely organic, farmland & countryside. Footpaths, from the Studio, flow directly cross-country into gorgeous villages of Cotswold stone and narrow country lanes or minor roads lead further afield for trips by car to pretty country towns and villages.
    This part of the Cotswolds we love particularly because it remains very largely working organic farmland rather than a recognised Cotswold destination - like Burford. The near bye villages without exception are all very attractive, most have a pub that serves food from good to restaurant standard. There is a network of footpaths linking the villages. We are happy to recommend our current favourite restaurants and other places or activities of interest.
  • We had a fantastic stay and Dougy, Jackie and Chutneys studio. It’s beautifully decorted, warm, comfortable and was ideally located for us heading to a wedding at Cripps Barn. So glad we made the decision to stay an extra day also and would defiantly recommend / be back to stay in the future x

    Natalie2020-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • Highly recommend this diamond of a place to stay . It is a true hidden gem, which is highly recommended. All the touches of home and great style !!

    Craig2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • Dougy's and Jackie's studio (much bigger than you would think) was perfect for a relaxed base in the Cotswolds. From the birds feeding just outside the door to the well equipped kitchen, meaning you could easily eat in and out. My travelling partner said the four poster bed was one of the best nights sleeps she has had. All in all, a little piece of paradise just 90 mins from London!

    Paul James2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing studio, cosy and quiet! We had such a relaxing couple of days - it just wasn't long enough!

    Emma2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful place, great quiet location and the dogs had an amazing time too!

    Emma2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful stay at Dougie & Jackie’s studio apartment. It had everything we wanted and more. Great location, just a short drive away from lots of local villages! We enjoyed all of the suggestions that we’re given to us- they did not disappoint! A great little get away!

    Melanie2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • The location is perfect for long walks and visits to the surrounding towns and villages. The studio itself has everything you need and more. Whilst we only stayed for 2 nights, we had a fabulous time in the Cotswolds. Dougy and Jackie are very kind and good hosts. Everything you need is included - basics in the fridge for a nice breakfast the following morning, books and guides to help guide you around and a lovely presented studio, with a great close view of the bird table outside your window - oh and a very comfy bed! Thanks Dougy and Jackie and hope to see you both and chutney in the future again.

    Kyriacos2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Dougy, Jackie and Chutneys place is absolutely fantastic to have a peaceful get-away. It had great facilities to make our own food. The breakfast selection was a lovely touch and they were full of suggestions on where to go and eat. It was clean and tidy. And the location was great for the surrounding villages. Can't recommend enough.

  • A cosy Cotswolds getaway. Rayma and Trevor were fantastic hosts who made me feel very welcome. The room was beautifully decorated and cosy. It even had an electric heater to keep you warm on a winters night. The reception room was an added bonus, which had a toaster, microwave and mini fridge. The hosts provided amble tea and coffee making facilities. Just what I like! Thank you for a perfect weekend away. I would love to come and stay again sometime!

    Nicola2019-12-15T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely stay in Burford, and really enjoyed the cosy room and incredible location for pubs and a walk in the countryside. Thanks for having us!

    Katie2019-12-08T00:00:00Z
  • Rayma's place in Burford is a beautiful 500 years old home. The Airbnb space you get will be the top floor which consists of a bed room, a living/dining space where you have seating facilities and also microwave,mini fridge and cutlery and your own bathroom. There is also a provision for tea and coffee provided. The bed is cozy and comfy and the room is maintained warm during winters. In the bath space, you get fresh towels, soap and shampoo. Though Breakfast is not provided we have many options to eat out. Trevor and Rayma are very kind and would do everything possible to make your stay memorable. I would mark this as a rare find.

    In the heart of Bourton-on-the-Water, this 2-bedroom, terraced holiday cottage makes an ideal base from which to explore the area. Enjoy the shops, or visit the Motor Museum and Model village, all within walking distance. Further afield are many delightful Cotswold villages and towns including Stratford-upon-Avon, Cheltenham and Oxford or nearby NT properties - Snowshill Manor, Hidcote Manor Gardens, Warwick Castle and Sudeley Castle. Shop 100 yards, pub and restaurant 50 yards.
    Forsythia Cottage is a two-bedroom (1 single, 1 double) Grade II Listed property and forms part of one of the original terraces situated within the peaceful backwaters of Bourton-on-the-Water’s picturesque High Street. The River Windrush flows through the centre, spanned by low arched bridges, flanked by wide village greens and lovely period Cotswold stone buildings. The village offers a wealth of attractions, delightful shops and eating establishments to suit everyone’s taste.
    Eating Bourton-on-the-Water is jam-packed full of quaint cafés, renowned restaurants and traditional pubs to enjoy, all within a gentle stroll of Forsythia Cottage’s front door. Highly recommended is The Rose Tree, a cosy riverside restaurant boasting great views and even better food where booking is essential, as well as The Croft Restaurant at Chester House Hotel; another riverside gem with a well-priced menu of light bites and freshly-prepared mains, using locally sourced ingredients wherever possible. An afternoon tea lover’s dream, Bourton-on-the-Water has options galore to satisfy your sweet tooth. Smiths of Bourton is a firm favourite amongst locals and visitors alike; a quintessential Cotswolds tearoom in every sense from the outside, serving up a freshly-baked menu of sweet and savoury treats as well as traditional afternoon teas. For fans of the artisan scene, Bakery on the Water is somewhat of an under the radar riverside gem, offering up delicious fresh pastries, brunch dishes, tasty sandwiches and baked goodies, freshly made each day using the finest of ingredients. Slightly further afield in nearby Upper Slaughter (9-minute drive), Lords of the Manor offers an award-winning fine dining experience that comes highly recommended (albeit with a price tag to match), as does The Slaughters Manor House; a 17th century manor house that houses an award-winning restaurant in its Orangery, with an exquisite locally-inspired menu created by chef Nik Chappell. Nearby Stow-on-the-Wold also boasts its fair share of dining establishments well-worth a visit, including the laid-back Sheep on Sheep Street with its sourdough pizza specialities and The Old Butchers; a hugely popular eatery where booking is recommended. Walking Smack bang in the middle of the glorious countryside of the rolling Cotswold hills, keen walkers have plenty of choice when it comes to walks that lead straight from the village centre; just a two-minute stroll from Forsythia Cottage. A wonderful circular village walk, leading from the village’s Visitor Information Centre, is highly recommended and allows you to get to grips with Bourton-on-the-Water’s rich heritage, taking you past key sites, buildings and monuments as you stroll. For those keen to explore the surrounding villages, a circular walk following the Windrush and Gloucestershire Ways through to the villages of Upper and Lower Slaughter offers a gentle pace that totals 4 miles in distance; perfect for those not looking for anything too strenuous. More hard-core rambling fans should give the 9-mile circular trek from Bourton through Naunton and the Slaughters a go. Starting at Victoria Street’s Visitor Centre, this picturesque walk takes you through lush fields, chocolate-box villages and along the flowing River Windrush, with Naunton acting as a perfectly-placed pit-stop half way round to relax and refuel. Must-Sees Bourton-on-the-Water and its surrounds have a plethora of attractions to keep guests of all ages entertained, many of which are within walking distance of Forsythia Cottage. No visit to the village would be complete without a visit to the Cotswold Motoring Museum & Toy Collection (2-minute walk), perfect for kids and big kids alike, and home to children’s TV favourite Brum. The Model Village (5-minute walk) is also a must see, a perfect replica of the village built to 1/9th scale in traditional Cotswold stone, as is the wildlife-lovers’ paradise Birdland (8-minute walk) if you’ve got younger guests in tow. If you’re visiting in the summer, you may also be lucky enough to play witness to the village’s annual football match taking place entirely in the River Windrush; an August Bank Holiday favourite that sees visitors flock from miles around to cheer on their favourite team. Slightly further afield, Cotswold Farm Park (10-minute drive) is a firm favourite for families and animal lovers, as is Sudeley Castle (25-minute drive) in the historic town of Winchcombe. For adults in search of a peaceful day out, Burford Garden Centre (20-minute drive) is a shopping haven crammed full of luxury goodies, artisan gifts and beautiful plants to browse, as is Daylesford Farmshop & Café (15-minute drive); a famous farmshop with a distinctly luxury feel, owned by Lady Bamford.
  • Wonderful wee cottage in the heart of the village. Great two bedroom place with a cute kitchen/living area. Cottage was clean and cosy. Host responded very quickly. Would stay again

    Andrew2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice house, very good location, in the center of town, easy to walk anywhere. The cottage is warm and clean, and quite a sense of history. I highly recommend my Chinese friends to come and experience it when they come to the UK.

    Shuai2020-01-21T00:00:00Z
  • What a lovely cottage! Brilliant location, perfectly clean, comfortable beds and very cosy. Exactly how you image a cottage in the Cotswolds to be. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking to stay in the Cotswolds or Bourton on the water. We will definitely be back!

    Niamh2019-12-17T00:00:00Z
  • Fab little cottage. Location was great, just off the main tourist part of Bourton on the Water. A lovely Italian about 2 mins away and bakery across the bridge. The house is perfectly compact, warm and cosy. Loads of hot water and comfy bed. It was great to have off street parking and a back garden. Just something to note, the stairs are very steep and narrow so if you have mobility issues, take care.

    Sarah2019-11-04T00:00:00Z
  • It was incredibly good. My husband said it was the best place in the whole Airbnb and hotel. The village is so lovely in the cutely decorated space. I was so happy and happy that I was in that space. If you're thinking of staying in Cotswolds, Burton on the Water, and this hostel is the best place to stay! At first I thought about the Bibury Swan Hotel, but the price was so high that I couldn't make a reservation. It's close, so I stayed here for a while, but I'm a little disappointed. The ceiling is low, the shower booth is narrow, and all of them are expressed in cuteness. My big husband was annoyed in London, but it's okay that it's okay even though it's a narrow sour booth.

    Huiwon2019-09-25T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely house in a brilliant location so you can just walk around Bourton without a car. The cottage as lovely inside and well equipped with everything needed. Perfect.

    Paul2019-05-15T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent location. Right in the centre while being super quiet and charming. Great communication. Recommend

    Joshua2019-05-12T00:00:00Z
  • This picture perfect cottage was the best spot to call home during our trip to the Cotswolds. The cottage was located in our favorite town, Bourton-on-the-Water. The house is just one street over from the river and busy shops, but feels off the beaten path. Having a parking spot included was a great bonus. From the start of our visit we felt right at home with our welcome basket. The cottage is at the top of our list for future stays. Thanks!

    Bourton-on-the-Water, England, United Kingdom

    Welcome to Honeystones, brought to you exclusively by Character Cottages, local specialists in stylish, Cotswold holiday rentals. Honeystones is a stylish, interior designed, detached house, located on the edge of the famous village of Bourton-on-the-Water and within walking distance of The Slaughters. Bourton is affectionately known as the “Venice of the Cotswolds”, due to the beautiful river that meanders through the heart of the village. Bourton itself has plenty to appeal to visitors, including a wide range of shops, pubs and restaurants, as well as being ideally located for exploring the many other beautiful towns and villages of the Cotswolds. Further afield places, such as Stratford-upon-Avon, Oxford and Bath are also within easy reach. Important Customer Notice: - Special Events: Christmas, New Year and the Cheltenham Horse Racing Festival are Special Events, with bookings typically limited to weeks only from a specific start day If your dates don’t appear to fit, then please click Contact Host below to find out what options may exist for you!
    Honeystones is very peacefully located on a no through road, in the village of Bourton-on-the-Water. There is a small lawned area at the front of the property, with a path leading to the front door, which opens into a spacious hallway. This leads to the following ground floor rooms: Living room: A stylish room in muted tones, with bi-fold doors leading directly onto the garden, there is ample seating with a two and a three-seater sofa, plus an arm chair and SMART TV; Dining & family room: this convivial space has a dining table with seating for eight plus a chaise sofa and arm chair, plus another SMART TV; Kitchen area: This spacious area is open to the dining room and is very well equipped with two electric ovens, a six-ring gas hob, full height double fridge and freezer units, a full-size dishwasher plus washing machine and a tumble dryer.

In addition to the island there is a breakfast bar and three bar stools as well as a docking station. Double doors open onto a patio with table and chairs, and the back garden beyond; Downstairs cloakroom: Contains a toilet and wash basin. Stairs lead up from the ground floor to the first floor, with the following rooms: Master bedroom: A good size room with stylish feature pieces which contains a king size bed and an ensuite bathroom, with a walk-in shower, toilet and wash basin; Bedroom 2: Smart room with twin beds or a super king size bed and a second ensuite bathroom with walk-in shower, toilet and wash basin; Bedroom 3: Contains 2 single beds; Bedroom 4: Contains a double bed; Games room: A great room for children, stocked with games.

    Bourton-on-the-Water is arguably one of the most popular villages of the Cotswolds, especially amongst overseas visitors. Having been nicknamed the "Venice of the Cotswolds", its scenery is the main draw for travellers. The River Windrush meanders through beautiful English countryside before passing over rapids next to the Old Mill and arriving at Bourton. The river is fed from many springs, with the source approximately ten miles from the village and, after flowing under the bridges of Bourton, it passes other villages before eventually joining the Thames. There are various attractions in the village, including the famous Birdland, which is home to a variety of birds from around the world. Here visitors can see parrots, pelicans, flamingos and penguins to name just a few, with experienced keepers feeding the birds and leading demonstrations. The Model Village is well worth a visit, as Bourton is the only village in the Cotswolds to have a one-ninth scale replica of itself. It is carefully maintained and has all of the characterful buildings including the Old Water Mill and the Old New Inn. Those lucky enough to witness snow in the winter months will notice photographers at the model village trying to get the perfect picture of the snowy scene. Another family favourite is the Dragonfly Maze. This yew maze leads visitors through the labyrinth, gathering clues in order to find the pavilion in the centre which enables them to unlock the final secret! The maze was constructed by Kit Williams, author of the golden hare treasure hunt book, "Masquerade".
  • We loved our stay, the house is beautiful and there has clearly been a lot of thought that has gone into the house, along with all the additional touches. It is in a great location and easy to find, the communication has been great. We thoroughly enjoyed our time and the place was spotless! Thank you!

  • Thank you for a fab stay at the Honeystones cottage, it was the perfect house to celebrate my 30th birthday in with friends. It's in the perfect location and close to Bourton-on-the-Water and other nearby villages. The homemade cake was delicious too and was a really special and thoughtful touch :)

  • Had a lovely stay at Honeystones, great location and great amenities. Would recommend to anyone. we had a minor issue during our stay but the property manager had a handyman out within a few hours on a bank holiday Sunday and fixed the problem.

Amy’s house was so easily accessible to ALL parts of Cotswold! It was amazing and going here and there took us 15-20mins and if we wanted to explore further, it took us less than an hour.

    Welcome to Cotswold View, brought to you exclusively by Character Cottages, local specialists in stylish, Cotswold holiday rentals. Cotswold View is a stunning contemporary property, on the ground floor of a new eco-friendly Cotswold stone farmhouse, which sits on a small farm with spectacular south easterly views across the beautiful Windrush Valley. As well as the lovely countryside views, a wide variety of wildlife can often be seen from the property, and yet the farm is located only half a mile up a country lane from the famous Cotswolds village of Bourton-on-the-Water. Affectionately known as the "Venice of the Cotswolds", due to the lovely river that meanders through the centre of the village, Bourton is surrounded by stunning countryside, with numerous walks on the doorstep, and a central location that makes it ideal for exploring the entire Cotswolds region and beyond. Important Customer Notice: - Special Events: Christmas, New Year and the Cheltenham Horse Racing Festival are Special Events, with bookings typically limited to weeks only from a specific start day If your dates don’t appear to fit, then please click Contact Host below to find out what options may exist for you!
    Cotswold View is accessed through the farmyard, and once you reach the front door, the only thing you look out over are miles of unbroken countryside. The front door opens into the main open-plan living space of the property, with all the rooms on the same ground floor level: •Living room/kitchen/dining area: This bright and spacious open plan space has floor to ceiling windows, which offer spectacular views across the Windrush Valley. The living room area contains plenty of seating with two comfy sofas and a side chair, a very realistic wood free electric log stove, and a flatscreen TV, with a Blu-ray player. One of the sofas opens up to form a single sofa bed for children under 10, if required.The large kitchen area is well equipped, with an electric oven, four ring induction hob, fridge freezer, dishwasher, microwave, kettle, toaster, washing machine and tumble dryer. The dining area contains a table, with seating for five; •Master bedroom: Further floor to ceiling windows provide lovely views across the Windrush Valley. The bedroom can be set up as either a super king size bed, or two single beds; •Bedroom 2: Located at the rear of the property, this room contains a double bed. There is no window in the bedroom, however the door and the wall separating the room from the main living area are glazed, to allow natural light in, with a curtain for privacy; •Family bathroom: The property layout means the bathroom can either be an ensuite or a family bathroom. It contains a bath, walk-in shower, toilet and wash basin. Immediately outside the front door is a patio area, with a table and four chairs, which is perfect for whiling away time and watching the wide array of wildlife that regularly visits the farm. The open grounds of the farm wrap around the house and extend down a grassy hill to the enclosed paddocks beyond. There is a charcoal barbecue at the property and ample off street parking is available next to the farmhouse.
    Bourton-on-the-Water is arguably one of the most popular villages of the Cotswolds, especially amongst overseas visitors. Having been nicknamed the "Venice of the Cotswolds", its scenery is the main draw for travellers. The River Windrush meanders through beautiful English countryside before passing over rapids next to the Old Mill and arriving at Bourton. The river is fed from many springs, with the source approximately ten miles from the village and, after flowing under the bridges of Bourton, it passes other villages before eventually joining the Thames. There are various attractions in the village, including the famous Birdland, which is home to a variety of birds from around the world. Here visitors can see parrots, pelicans, flamingos and penguins to name just a few, with experienced keepers feeding the birds and leading demonstrations. The Model Village is well worth a visit, as Bourton is the only village in the Cotswolds to have a one-ninth scale replica of itself. It is carefully maintained and has all of the characterful buildings including the Old Water Mill and the Old New Inn. Those lucky enough to witness snow in the winter months will notice photographers at the model village trying to get the perfect picture of the snowy scene.
  • We had a lovely stay. The apartment was sparkling clean and had spectacular views. Some lovely touches by the hosts and they brought a little book for our 2 year old son as a present. Very hospitable

    Gary2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay, within a couple of minutes drive into the centre of Bourton-on-the-Water. Everything is clean & well thought out. Amazing view & the ability to sit & birdwatch all day long if you have no plans to go out. We visited in February & had rain most days but with the underfloor heating & electric 'fire', we managed to dry out & warm up quickly after a soggy day out. We'll definitely be back in the future, maybe at a sunnier time of year

    Joanne2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay, lovely views and an awesome bathroom!

    Charlotte2019-12-09T00:00:00Z
  • Peace and tranquility, close enough yet far enough away from the village

    Ian2019-12-02T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic! Lovely and clean and warm. The owners were lovely people and very helpful. Plenty of parking and beautiful views! Will definitely stay again.

    Alex2019-11-17T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic location very close to Bourton on the Water. Great view and surrounding. High quality comfortable accommodation, perfect for a family with small children or a couple.

    Rafael2019-11-11T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely stay at Cotswolds View. The hosts were communicative, the check in was easy, and the space was nice and clean. The walk to town was not bad despite the incline (though bring a flashlight at night). Thanks Character Cottages!

    Michael2019-11-03T00:00:00Z

    The Granary is part of The Great Barns at Macaroni Farm which were built in the 1700's. Macaroni Farm is a family run, organic farm situated in the heart of the Cotswolds, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Guests staying here can enjoy the many footpaths, and walk across fields to the historic village of Eastleach. The Granary is a beautifully authentic barn conversion which retains the feel of the original grain store it once was, with exposed beams, stone and stable dividers upstairs.
    The ground floor consists of a large, stone floored open plan living room/kitchen, with electric wood burner. The entrance hall is spacious with a WC under the stairs, that leads up to the bathroom, twin room , and master bedroom. All beds are comfortable Loaf beds. The master bedroom has a super king size bed and its' own WC and basin. Guests would need to walk through the twin to get to the master room, which could also be used as a dressing room for couples who wished to stay.
    The historic village of Eastleach is a short walk across the fields from The Granary which also boasts the very popular 'Queen Victoria' pub. We are on the edge of the Coln Valley famous for its' beautiful walks. There are 5 wonderful pubs within a 10 minute radius of the farm, while the villages of Bibury, Burford, Fairford, Lechlade and Cirencester are close by and easy to explore from us. Fairford and Lechlade both have a 'Lynwoods' café which are infamous for their delicious coffee, sourdough and breakfasts.
  • A beautifully appointed barn conversion. A really special place to stay.

    Alicia2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • Very comfortable stay with our toddler. Lovely place to stay. Modern and spacious. Liza was very accomodating and great at responding to messages. She kindly left us some milk, eggs and crossaints to start off our stay. Beds were very comfortable. Thanks for a lovely little break.

    Anisha2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • The Granary is an absolute gem. My friends and I had an amazingly peaceful time at the cottage for our get away. It is very quiet but also only a few minutes drive away from the classic charming villages of Cotswolds with good pubs around, offers beautiful walks and Liza the host was so quick to respond (we didn’t have the bin liners), you would never feel too far away. The place is spacious, tastefully decorated and sparkling clean. And the beds are super comfortable with the amazing down duvets that makes you feel like you’re floating in the clouds. Would definitely recommend to friends and family.

    Tania2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Incredible stay at The Granary. It’s the perfect location for a weekend getaway in the country with beautiful walks, pubs and the English countryside right on its doorstep. Liza was so helpful at recommending local attractions and her attention to detail in the house is amazing. We will definitely be coming back!!

    Victoria2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Wow, the Cotswolds are amazing, its absolutely stunning here. It is beautiful English Countryside in the forest. It was exactly what I was hoping to see. Beautiful home in a beautiful location, near cute medieval villages, and even palaces not too far away. We went as a family, and spent a day shopping in near by Burford, and Bourton on the Water, and visiting Blenheim Palace. The home is neat and well equipped, with oodles of space. Its styled well and lit well through out, with very good black out curtains on the sleeping floor. Bathrooms a plenty (such an awesome luxury.) We only spent 2 nights at The Granary but we would've happily have stayed for 2 weeks or more. There was so much to see and do in the area. The home has excellent wifi, and a washing machine that also can dry. The only small negative is its under a flight path, planes fly by quite frequently but do eventually stop overnight. I would recommend staying here to anyone. Its an absolutely amazing Airbnb, and worth every penny. I loved it.

    Reed2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful property, in a great location, with lots of local places to visit, eat-in, walk about etc. Liza and support team are outstanding - making our stay all the more comfortable.

    Chris2020-02-19T00:00:00Z

    Aleksandra2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
