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.

It was in a perfect location behind the main street. Lovely and quiet yet close to all amenities, cafes and pubs. It is also in a great location to drive to many of the local attractions in the Cotswolds. The cottage itself has all the equipment and amenities you would require plus everything in the cottage is of the highest spec, it was lovely and clean too. In short, if you want to stay in a peaceful location but near to all the attractions and in a high quality accommodation I would definitely recommend to anyone to stay here. Would definitely recommend and we hope to visit again.

There is everything you could possibly need. We went out one evening and it had started to rain and lo and behold, there were 2 umbrellas! There is so much available to see and do locally. Even with 3 cars, it was not a problem as there's plenty of all day free parking just up the road. Wonderful
