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.
