Make a holiday apartment in Bourton-on-the-Water your home away from home

Bourton-on-the-Water holiday apartments provide the ideal anchor for a serene getaway. This idyllic village is bigger than most in the Cotswolds, with a population of more than 3,000, so it features a number of attractions to appeal to all ages. Indeed, it’s easy to bring the whole family when visiting: it may be known as the “Venice of the Cotswolds” because of the River Windrush and its charming low bridges, but this is by no means the only thing to enjoy here. Most holiday homes in Bourton-on-the-Water are just a few minutes' walk from mazes, wildlife parks and museums.

Things to do in Bourton-on-the-Water

-Attractions: A trip to the Dragonfly Maze is a fun excursion for all ages. It is neither disappointingly short nor overwhelmingly long, and offers the added twist of questions that need to be completed using clues found within. On top of all that, it’s a terrific bargain with an entrance fee of just a few pounds. That said, the Model Village in the town also offers a fun day out; the surreal experience of a 1:9 scale exact replica of Bourton-on-the-Water. It even includes a miniature model village in itself - a model within a model! On a practical note, it’s the perfect first trip from your holiday accommodation in Bourton-on-the-Water, as you can easily see where attractions and shops are located. It's open every day except Christmas.

-Wildlife: Birdland encompasses nine acres, 150 trees, and over 500 birds in 50 aviaries; it's perfect for a relaxing wander, and you can even spot other creatures including dragonflies and water voles in the new 2.5 acre Marshmouth preserve. There is also an indoor Discovery Zone, and an Encounter Zone where spiders, birds and snakes (and their keepers) await you. Stop for a picnic along the Windrush banks, and be sure to see the only group of king penguins in England and Wales before you leave.

-Tours: Bloody Bourton Walking Tours are more than just a stroll around the village in sensible shoes: these historic walking tours offer a taste of the macabre! Enjoy ghost stories, legends, superstitions and tales of murder and crime. Family discounts are available.  

-Museums: Cotswold Motoring Museum is a first-class experience, offering seven galleries overflowing with exhibits, including one about Brum! Enjoy the transportation of various eras, heightened with accompanying sights, sounds and smells.

                                                            Gorgeous Cotsold Cottage

                                                            The cottage was exactly as described and depicted in the photos. It is in a perfect location being just minutes walk from the lovely village of Bourton-on-the-Water. It was perfectly clean and very well appointed with all modern applicants and gadgets. It is lovingly looked after and the beds and furniture extremely comfortable. Reena and the caretaker Chris were wonderful and so easily contacted with any queries. We spent New Years Eve at the Cottage, there were 6 of us and it accommodated us all extremely well. It is also a perfect base to explore the Cotswolds from, with everything being only a short drive away - even in winter ! All the local pubs served great food and were very hospitable. Daylesford Organic Farm is only a 15 minute drive away and is an amazing place! Lots of cheeses were sampled and lunch was enjoyed by all in the restaurant. We purchased some Ryland Lamb from Daylesford and had a huge roast the next day for 10 of us! And we were all able to sit up to the table and enjoy it. I highly recommend a visit there. It was a very different holiday for us, being from Australia, having a cold Xmas and New Year but it was the perfect place to stay. I would highly recommend anyone to stay at Callow Cottage at any time of the year, and if by chance we get back that way again I will definitely be booking the cottage again. Thank you onc again Reena and Chris for making the holiday such a success.

                                                            The Perfect Break

                                                            To stay in Middle Gable is a privilege. A beautiful period building, clean and well, maintained in the heart of a picturesque village. Walk a few hundred yards to the center of Bourton and you have the river with five pretty bridges surrounded by some very nice bars and restaurants. Food and drink in the village was plentiful. The house is stunning, beams, low doorways, beautiful staircase, period fittings - comfortable beds, good kitchen, etc. The owner was very personable, provided good customer service and was easily contactable. We found there to be plenty of space for two couples. There were an abundance of walks to enjoy around the village. Would highly recommend to the discerning.

                                                            We had a fantastic time staying in apartment one at the Cotswold Perfumery. The owner has thought about everything to ensure guests have an amazing stay. Why pay for a small hotel room when you can have pure luxury in an apartment at such great value for money! We didn't want to leave!
