Things To Do in Bourton-on-the-Water
Bourton-on-the-Water is picture perfect. The River Windrush meanders through the centre and almost every building is built from traditional pale-yellow limestone. It’s easy to see why Bourton has been voted the prettiest village in England several times over.
On warm summer days, visitors dip their feet in the shallow water and sit on the banks to watch the ducks and swans. The low stone bridges that cross the Windrush are some of the most photographed in the country.
When it comes to mealtimes, there is a huge choice of eateries including traditional pubs, takeaway shops and tea rooms. And for shoppers, a selection of antique shops, gift stores and craft rooms can be found as well.
Just outside of Bourton is Greystones Nature Reserve, an area of Special Scientific Interest where you can ramble with the dog and kids. A Discover Barn is educational and a café is there for refreshments. Visit the stone circle at Rollright a few miles away, it has been there since 3,800 BC and is a spiritual place. The stones are believed to be impossible to count – every time you try you will end up with a different number.
The village of Broadway is lined with trees and boasts a nice selection of in independent shops. The Broadway Tower is in 50 acres of privately-owned land, it’s a spectacular folly that you can climb when you visit the estate.
Doggies are welcome to roam with you through the deer park. A visit to Stow-on-the-Wold is a must when you come to the Cotswolds. Built on the brow of Stow Hill, it’s the highest town around and was the centre of the local wool industry. If you like searching for antiques, then this is the place for you. There are several in the square, all crammed with fascinating collectables.
The Cotswolds is a beautiful place for a holiday. Peppered with pretty villages, every place looks like a chocolate-box picture.
