Things To Do in Bourton-on-the-Water, Nr Gloucester
Bourton-on-the-Water has been voted one of the prettiest villages in England more than once, and it’s easy to see why.
The honey-coloured stone houses, seasonal flower arrangements and quirky shops create a delightful and picturesque scene. The dominating feature, of course, is the Windrush River – although it’s only inches deep in the centre of the village, it gives this place its charm.
There are old stone bridges that cross the water, numerous park benches, ducks, swans and butterflies, and when the weather is warm, visitors dip their toes in the river as they sit on the grassy banks. Antique stores, gift shops and cafes serving organic lunches line the streets.
Greystones Nature Reserve, on the edge of Bourton, is a great place to take the family and the dog. This site of Special Scientific Interest has 6,000 years of history to its name and is the place to spot wildlife and plants of all kinds.
There’s a shallow river to cross, so don’t forget your wellies, and a few climbing frames for the kids too. A Discover Barn and café are available too.
Broadway Tower is a family-owned folly set in 50 acres. There’s the amazing tower itself, a museum, a deer park and a café so you could happily spend a few hours here with the dog. It’s not far from the village of Moreton-in-the-Marsh where there is a market every Tuesday.
Chastleton House is worth a visit, this Jacobian home is stunning, and the parkland welcomes doggies when they are on a lead. And Stow-on-the-Wold is a tourist destination, a picture-perfect village with antique shops and artisan food.
There is nowhere as delightful as the Cotswolds. Almost every building is listed as each one has been beautifully built using traditional methods and beautiful stone.
The countryside between the towns and villages is stunning and the ideal place for long walks in summer or winter with the dog. Barton Cottage has an ideal location, right in the heart of Bourton-on-the-Water.
This home has all the Cotswold character you could ask for and it’s equipped for a comfortable stay. There’s plenty to see in the village, so you could leave the car parked for the whole holiday. Or take the motor for a short drive and explore all the pretty villages nearby, and the city of Gloucester too.
