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.

Jasmine cottage was exceptionally clean, well equipped and tastefully decorated. Pretty gardens and a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere. Lynsey the owner was very helpful and friendly. I can highly recommend this property.

The cottage is stunning and has been renovated to a very high standard with great attention to detail. The beds were so comfortable I made a note of the mattress and will be buying one for home. The location is perfect, the centre of the village is on the doorstep, yet the road is off the main thoroughfare so is nice and peaceful. The lady next door was so helpful in advising us where to park when we arrived. All of the information provided prior to our visit was really helpfull in enabling us to plan our stay, specifically the advice to book a table if you are planning to eat out. We ate at 'The Croft' on the Saturday (2 minute walk) and the meal was lovely. Although the cottage has been renovated and modernised to a high standard it still retains the charm and cosyness of a country cottage. It was clean and well equipped, and having stayed in many other holiday cottages this was one of the best. Would definitely recommend and will be returning myself.
