Bourton on the Water in the Cotswolds
page heading


A genuinely pretty village with the River Windrush running stratight through its' main street, with exceptional small stone bridges giving regular crossing points, known locally as 'The Venice of theCotswolds'.

A truly historic village, many of the cottages and house are at least 300 years old, with some dating back to Elizabethan times.  Bourton-on-the-Water is another casualty of the decline in the woollen industry.  Despite this Bourton-on-the-Water is a popular and regular stopping point for tourists from both near and far.


There is much to see and the attractions suit all ages and interests:-
  • The Cotswold Perfumery
  • Birdland
  • The Miniature Village
  • Motoring Museum & Toy Museum
  • Model Railway
