Summary

Weir Cottage is a traditional Cotswold stone cottage, located in the heart of the famous market town of Bourton-on-the-Water, affectionately referred to as the "Venice of the Cotswolds", due to the beautiful river that meanders through the heart of the town. Bourton itself has plenty to appeal to visitors, including a wide range of shops, pubs and restaurants, as well as being ideally located for exploring the other many beautiful towns and villages of the Cotswolds, as well as further afield places, such as Stratford-upon-Avon, Oxford and Bath.

The cottage has traditional character features, including wooden beams and doors, and a lovely real fire, which are complemented by modern facilities, including wireless internet access, a well presented kitchen and a beautiful family bathroom.

Weir Cottage sleeps a maximum of four people, in two bedrooms, with a family bathroom and a separate WC. There are lovely garden areas to the front and rear of the cottage and there is off-street parking for two/three cars, a major advantage in Bourton-on-the-Water. The property is ideal for couples or friends looking for a lovely cottage for a relaxing break, in one of the best loved market towns in the Cotswolds.

•Kitchen: Spacious and well presented, the kitchen contains an electric oven, four ring ceramic hob, fridge, freezer, dishwasher, microwave, kettle, toaster, wine fridge, washing machine and CD player;

•Reception hall: Currently empty, this low height room leads to the front door;

•Hallway: There is a tumble dryer under the stairs in the small hallway.

Stairs lead up from the hallway to the first floor landing. All the first floor rooms are lovely rooms in the eaves of the cottage:

•Bedroom 1: Contains a double bed, with a memory foam mattress;

•Bedroom 2: A flexible room, which can be set up as either two single beds, or a super king size bed;

•Family bathroom: A stylish feature bathroom, which contains a bath with an overhead shower, toilet, wash basin and electric heated towel rail;

Bourton-on-the-Water

The village of Bourton-on-the-Water (or “Bourton”) is famous for its picturesque High Street, flanked by long wide greens and the River Windrush that runs through them. The river is crossed by several low, arched stone bridges, which have led to Bourton being called the “Venice of the Cotswolds”. Bourton is regularly voted the prettiest village in the Cotswolds.

Despite only being classified as a village, Bourton’s status as a major tourist destination means that it has numerous shops, pubs, restaurants, cafes and tourist attractions.

One of the Bourton’s long standing traditions is the playing every summer of a game of medieval football, with goalposts set up in the River Windrush itself. Two teams play with a standard football and a referee attempts to keep order. Crowds line the banks of the river, and the aim is to score as many goals as possible (whilst getting everyone else as wet as possible!).

Various long-distance footpaths and local walks start, finish or pass through Bourton, including the Windrush Way and the Heart of England Way, which begins its 100-mile route north in the village.

The Cotswolds

The Cotswolds are a range of hills in west-central England, sometimes called the "Heart of England". The name Cotswold means "sheep enclosure in rolling hillsides".

The Cotswolds are characterised by attractive small towns and villages, built of the underlying Cotswold stone (a yellow oolitic limestone). In the Middle Ages the wool trade made the Cotswolds prosperous and some of this money was put into the building of churches, leaving the area with a number of large handsome Cotswold stone "wool churches". The area remains affluent, which has encouraged the establishment of many high quality pubs, restaurants and antique shops.

Cotswold towns include Bourton-on-the-Water, Broadway, Burford, Chipping Norton, Cirencester, Moreton-in-Marsh, Northleach, Stow-on-the-Wold, Stroud and Winchcombe. The town of Chipping Campden is notable for being the home of the Arts and Crafts movement, founded by William Morris at the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th centuries. William Morris lived occasionally in Broadway Tower, a folly, now part of a country park. Chipping Campden is also known for the annual Cotswold Olimpick Games, a celebration of sports and games dating back to the early 17th century. Famous places close to the Cotswolds include Stratford-upon-Avon, the birthplace of William Shakespeare, Cheltenham, home to the famous horse racing festival, and the beautiful university city of Oxford.

Food and drink
