Bourton-on-the-Water in the Cotswolds


Bourton on the Water – also affectionately termed Venice of the Cotswolds, is a lovely picturesque village with a river running through it, with buildings dating back to the Elizabethan period.

This is a lovely little place but when visiting do go early in the morning – tourists flock to Bourton and it is therefore best enjoyed before it gets too crowded. There are pretty little shops, restaurants and coffee shops which line either side of the river which runs through the village and a sequence of small pretty bridges.

If you fancy some activities, there is a maze and Birdland with an assortment of different birds (over 500 birds).

Holiday accommodation is cheapest in the run up to Christmas and early January. Take advantage of special offers in self catering accommodation and hotels to enjoy a special low season break in the Cotswolds.
