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. Besides holiday apartments in Bourton-on-the-Water, of course, HomeAway offers cottages and homes that can sleep from two to 20.

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.

The cottage has been done to a very high standard, very modern but with a traditional feel. Everything you could possible need was there and it felt luxurious but homely at the same time. It was literally steps away from the main part of the village with stunning river running through it and we never used our car once as everything is on your door step. The owner was easy to communicate with and responded very quickly and attentively to all queries. I would definately revisit and recommend anyone to stay here.

Everything you might want is there. lovely large cooker, large dishwasher, and all the utensils you might use. It really is beautifully furnished with some interesting rooms suitable for adults and children. The garden is enclosed allowing safe play. We were a party of eight adults and six children ranging from one year to seven years old. All in all we all had a wonderful time. I would like to thank Michael Curtis for his friendly efficient service.
