The Bybrook is a large detached property, built in traditional Cotswold stone, and located on the edge of the famous village of Bourton-on-the-Water, affectionately known as the Venice of the Cotswolds, due to the beautiful river that meanders through the heart of the village. 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 many other beautiful towns and villages of the Cotswolds. Further afield places, such as Stratford-upon-Avon, Oxford and Bath are also within easy reach.

Newly built in traditional Cotswold stone, The Bybrook is spacious and well laid out, with modern facilities that include wireless internet access, two TVs (one with a DVD player), and a large, well presented kitchen.

The Bybrook sleeps 8+1 guests in four bedrooms (with the +1 on a day bed in the family room), with two bathrooms and a ground floor cloakroom. There is a lovely enclosed garden at the back of the property and two off street parking spaces to the side. The Bybrook is ideal for large family gatherings or for groups of friends seeking a relaxing break in one of the Cotswolds best loved villages, surrounded by glorious countryside.

House Rules

Booking and payment

Character Cottages is a marketing agency and we do not own or manage any of the cottages listed on our website. Bookings made via us form a legal agreement directly between you and the property owner.

For bookings commencing more than 10 weeks in advance, a 30% non-refundable deposit is required to confirm the booking. The balance payment is then due 10 weeks prior to arrival.

All payments are made subject to the cancellation policy set out in the standard Booking Conditions.

Security deposits

A security deposit of £250 is payable, which is returned after the letting period, subject to an inspection of the property. For the avoidance of doubt, guests are requested to leave the property in a reasonable condition, consistent with the property's appearance upon arrival. In the event that the owners, or their appointed housekeepers, have to spend additional time tidying up after your departure, then the cost of this extra time may be deducted from your security deposit. The security deposit is payable prior to arrival at the property, via a bank transfer or a valid debit or credit card.

Occupancy

The maximum occupancy of the property is nine guests, at any point during your stay. Unauthorised over occupancy is a breach of our terms and conditions and may result in the cancellation of your booking and additional charges. Please consult us prior to booking if you wish to discuss the possibility of having more than nine guests at the property.

Infants who sleep in a cot do not count towards the occupancy figure, however, due to space restrictions, the occupancy figure may only be exceeded by one additional infant.

Pets

Regrettably, pets are not accepted.

Photographs

In order to provide you with as much detail of our properties as possible, we sometimes use wide angle photography, which can make certain rooms, or spaces, appear larger than they actually are. Wherever possible, we try to include a floorplan, with detailed dimensions of rooms and areas.

If you have any queries regarding the size of any rooms or spaces, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Other Activities:

Bourton-on-the-Water is arguably one of the most popular villages of the Cotswolds, especially amongst overseas visitors. Having been nicknamed the "Venice of the Cotswolds", its scenery is the main draw for travellers. The River Windrush meanders through beautiful English countryside before passing over rapids next to the Old Mill and arriving at Bourton.

The river is fed from many springs, with the source approximately ten miles from the village and, after flowing under the bridges of Bourton, it passes other villages before eventually joining the Thames.

There are various attractions in the village, including the famous Birdland, which is home to a variety of birds from around the world. Here visitors can see parrots, pelicans, flamingos and penguins to name just a few, with experienced keepers feeding the birds and leading demonstrations.

The Model Village is well worth a visit, as Bourton is the only village in the Cotswolds to have a one-ninth scale replica of itself. It is carefully maintained and has all of the characterful buildings including the Old Water Mill and the Old New Inn. Those lucky enough to witness snow in the winter months will notice photographers at the model village trying to get the perfect picture of the snowy scene.

Another family favourite is the Dragonfly Maze. This yew maze leads visitors through the labyrinth, gathering clues in order to find the pavilion in the centre which enables them to unlock the final secret! The maze was constructed by Kit Williams, author of the golden hare treasure hunt book, "Masquerade".

Guests may find the following local information useful:

-There is a large playground close by, with a football pitch

-There is a gym and leisure centre close by, which guests can use on a pay as you go basis

-The well regarded Coach & Horses pub is a five minute walk from the house

-The house is close to a bus route that takes people to the surrounding local villages

-The Cotswold Farm Park, which features on the BBC's Countryfile, is just three miles away

-Birdland Park and Gardens is a short walk away

-The centre of Bourton-on-the-Water is just a 10 minute walk away

-There is a Co-op supermarket a 5 minute walk away

Car: Bourton-on-the-Water is located next to the A429 (Fosse Way) and is easily accessed by car.

Train: The nearest railway station to Bourton-on-the-Water is Kingham (approximately 8 miles away), which has regular, direct services to London Paddington, with a typical journey time of approximately 90 minutes.

Plane: Birmingham International Airport: 48 miles, approximately 60 minute drive; Heathrow International Airport: 74 miles, approximately 80 minute drive.
