Bourton on the Water

Bourton on the Water - a picturesque village in the Gloucestershire Cotswolds.


Bourton on the Water is regularly voted one of the prettiest villages in England. The River Windrush flows gently through the centre of the village, traversed by low stone bridges and giving rise to the village being known as the 'Venice of the Cotswolds'.

The High Street is lined with beautiful Cotswolds stone houses interspersed with cafes, restaurants, gift shops, pubs and hotels.
