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.

We could have spent our entire holiday here in the Cotswold area. We highly recommend the home and area.

A five minute walk from this cottage brings you to the picturesque centre of Bourton on the Water and so it is ideally located for a relaxing holiday. The house is nicely decorated, comfortable and generally well equipped. One thing that we would love to have for future is more comfortable furniture in the living room for relaxing in the evening - there is a corner sofa currently, however it is not very comfortable. We had a lovely time staying in the cottage and would definitely return if we are ever back in the area.

Our whole week was based around bourton and to return to the cottage each evening was a treat. This has been the best kept cottage we have stayed in and our invited friends were highly delighted with their stay. We would recommend to everyone,many thanks ,Len and Elaine West Sussex.
