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.

So clean well equipped and in a fantastic location! It has everything you need which makes it home from home. I cannot recommend it highly enough!

The cottage has been kept in excellent condition, clean and well maintained. The facilities within the cottage were exceptional and catered for holidaymakers of all ages. The cottage is 2 doors away from the nearest tea room and just across the road is an Italian restaurant. There are plenty of places to eat, but a particular favourite of ours was The Old Manse Hotel. The staff were helpful, and the food was excellent and such good value for money (particularly the Indian banquet). There are some lovely little unique shops within the vicinity and we also managed to visit the attractions such as Birdland, The Model Village and The Motor Museum. All this packed in to such a small, picturesque village. Staying in Bourton also gives you the opportunity to use it as a base to travel to other areas, such as Oxford or Cheltenham if you want retail therapy on a larger scale. It is also near to other small but beautiful villages such as Stow on the Wold and Upper and Lower Slaughter. We would definitely stay at the cottage again and would highly recommend it to anyone.
