About US

'Your very own Cotswolds home, for a week or two'
Steeped in History, Oozing Charm.

From humble beginnings and originally two cottages, Bourton Croft Cottage is built of local Cotswold stone under a traditional Cotswold stone roof and now boasts the ultimate in amenity and comfort. No expense has been spared in creating a wonderful place to stay, just 100 feet from the river that is the very 'water' in Bourton-on-the-water.

Positioned in the middle of the Oxford (33 miles), Bath (51 miles), Stratford-upon-Avon (25 miles) triangle these historical towns are each circa one hour's drive away; there is much to explore by car, but so much more by foot or cycle. Typical Cotswold towns are Burford (12 miles), Chipping Norton (13 miles), Cirencester (16 miles), Moreton-in-Marsh (8 miles) and Stow-on-the-Wold (4 miles). The Cotswold town of Chipping Campden (14 miles) 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 (13 miles), near Broadway (15 miles) a folly now in a country park.

Bourton Croft Cottage is situated in the very heart of the Cotswolds which designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in 1966. Its an area in south central England and contains the Cotswolds Hills, a range of rolling hills which rise from the meadows of the upper Thames to an escarpment, known as the Cotswold Edge, above the Severn Valley and Evesham Vale. The area is defined by the bedrock of Jurassic limestone which creates a type of grassland habitat rare in the UK, and which is quarried for the golden coloured Cotswold stone of which Bourton Croft Cottage is built.

Frequently Asked Questions

Be Sure, Be Comfortable, Become Informed
  • Can I bring my dog, he smokes 20 cigarettes a day?

    Ah no, we are sorry on both counts, no pets and no smoking. We love dogs but we had to make a call, hence the hypo-allergenic pillows rather than pure goose down. The thing is, people that don't get a reaction to dogs have no problem in a dog free environment, but the reverse is not true.

  • Is the cottage suitable for wheelchairs?

    Bourton Croft Cottage was built before the wheelchair so its not the easiest place to get around in a wheelchair, however that won't be a problem to players of wheelchair rugby and there is room inside. You are most welcome, but be warned the stairs & steps could be the issue. We do have a Hearing & Mobility Store, they can make your life easier while on holiday from the hire of a wheelchair to a suction grab rail for your bath or shower.

  • Can you provide a meal for our arrival?

    Yes, at this time of year Christina will, if requested, make a stunning beef casserole, especially for you and your party using the very best beef from local esteemed Butcher, Castles of Burford and season permitting home grown vegetables. This will be accompanied by her own home made bread and the wine of your choosing. In warmer months the option will be a Thai fishcake salad, that's home made fishcakes and a delicious home grown salad straight from the plot and depending on the month, the very best new potatoes. Prices on request and you can make your needs known as little as 3 days before you arrive.

  • What's the parking like?

    In a cluster of cottages that were built 200 years before the car was invented, parking is an art form, but certainly not a challenge. There's plenty of free parking in the village and we'll share the secrets with you. Full details will be emailed to you in your 'welcome' pack.

  • Are we permitted to entertain friends during our stay?

    Certainly, be our guests and invite your guests over. Bourton Croft Cottage is a wonderful place to entertain. We are happy to recommend local food producers, farmers, growers, brewers and cheese makers, of which there are four within a 6 mile radius of the cottage. The Cotswolds is a fresh food haven and if you really want to spoil your friends we can organise a chef to come in and cook for you.

  • Where is the nearest supermarket?

    Londis is a 2 minute walk away directly over the river and is open from 7am to 9pm, 7 days a week. You can also order from Tesco online, 'you shop, they drop'. Order at home and have it delivered to Bourton Croft Cottage. Toast is Bourton-on-the-Water's first Farm Shop and a family business and that is just 2 minutes away, also across the river. 77 of their suppliers are from within a 50 mile radius. Have you guessed where the chemist is? yep 2 minutes walk away, across the river. In fact the entire High Street, with its many utility and specialists shops is just 2 minutes over the centre bridge.
