About Us

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.

    Christina’s cottage is in an ideal position in the centre of Bourton-on-the-water so close to all restaurants and amenities. It is well equipped and comfortable and so cosy on a winters evening. A lovely touch was a Christmas tree lit up to greet us on our arrival! We had a lovely relaxing weekend there. Christina was always quick to reply to any emails and was very helpful. An excellent host!

    This is a lovely cottage in which to stay. It is in a very quiet location in the centre of Bourton (you can see the ducks on the water a few yards away from the bedroom window) and it is perfect for exploring the nearby towns and villages in the Cotswolds. Everything you could need is in the Cottage - which is really well thought out and presented and Christina has put in lots of nice extra touches, including a welcome pack of bread, eggs, jam, milk etc. or in the various shops just a minute or so walk away. We had a really good time here and would highly recommend it.

    The cottage is beautiful and a great space for 6 people. The cottage has everything you need and is well stocked with kitchen utensils and basics such as salt pepper herbs spices coffee tea olive oil etc, there are so many thoughtful touches throughout the cottage. The location is incredible in the most beautiful cotswold town. The free unlimited parking spaces do free up near the cottage from 5pm so there’s no need to panic about the parking. I couldn’t recommend staying here more and Christina is a brilliant host and in touch if you need anything. Thanks again!

    This is a truly a 5 star experience. The house is amazing and would be happy for it to be my family home. The place is cosy and modern, beds super comfy and bathrooms are spotless. Its bang in the centre of the town and a 5 minute walk from all the best pubs and restaurants.

    Had a superb stay at Christina’s cottage. A super host, quick to respond and most helpful. The cottage is so lovely and beautifully furnished, the kitchen is also extremely well stocked with plenty of glasses, plates, cooking items etc. Parking was a touch challenging (bourton is a very special popular place) but didn’t affect how much we enjoyed out stay and would thoroughly recommend to everyone.
