Summary

The property

Station Cottage is a wonderful Grade II listed property which sleeps 4+1 guests, in two smart bedrooms (with the +1 option being a camp bed for a small child in bedroom 2), with a contemporary family bathroom. Dating back to the 17th century, this Cotswold stone cottage has been finished to a high standard with a warm interior and modern facilities including wireless internet access, an electric flame effect fire and a Freeview TV. There is an attractive courtyard garden at the front and restricted on-street parking is available close by, with the option of two Pay & Display car parks if necessary. Situated in the heart of the picturesque village of Bourton-on-the-Water, Station Cottage is surrounded by the stunning countryside of the North Cotswolds. This vibrant village is often referred to as the ‘Venice of the Cotswolds’ due to the low arched bridges that cross over the River Windrush which flows peacefully through its centre. Home to a variety of popular pubs, restaurants, cafes and independent shops, this much loved destination offers a range of tourist attractions too, including the iconic Model Village, the Cotswold Brewing Company and Birdland Park and Gardens. The Cotswolds is the UK’s largest Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with many walking trails and cycle routes to explore including routes from Bourton out to the nearby villages of Naunton, The Slaughters and Cold Aston, all home to well-regarded country pubs. Bourton’s central location makes it a superb base for visiting the many bustling market towns in the area, such as Stow-on-the-Wold, Burford and Chipping Campden, and further afield destinations including Cirencester, Oxford, Blenheim Palace and Stratford-upon-Avon, home of William Shakespeare, are also easily accessible for day trips. Station Cottage is the perfect retreat for a small family or group of friends who are looking to escape to an idyllic village surrounded by glorious countryside. The front door opens directly into the living/dining room and the following rooms are on the ground floor: Living/dining room: This light and spacious room with exposed wooden beams and smart wooden flooring contains a large fireplace with a contemporary electric flame effect fire, Freeview TV, three-seater sofa, armchair, window seat and a wooden dining table with seating for four, plus a fold away chair for a small child; Kitchen: The airy kitchen is well-equipped and perfect for enthusiastic cooks. It contains an electric oven with four-ring gas hob, fridge, freezer, washing machine, dishwasher, microwave, kettle, cafetière and toaster. There is also a breakfast bar with two stools. Stairs lead up to the first floor landing, off which are the following rooms: Master bedroom: This elegant bedroom receives plenty of natural light and contains a king size bed, chest of drawers, built-in wardrobe, wall mirror and two window seats; Family bathroom: The tastefully decorated bathroom contains a bath with overhead shower, toilet, wash basin and heated towel rail. Further steep stairs with restricted head height lead up from the first floor landing directly into bedroom 2: Bedroom 2: In the eaves of the cottage, this stylish bedroom has striking exposed beams and contains a double bed, a single camp bed (suitable for a small child), available upon request, a chest of drawers, built-in wardrobe and wall mirror. At the front of the cottage there is an attractive enclosed courtyard garden with a tall hedge and pretty hanging baskets overhead.

About the location

BOURTON-ON-THE-WATER

Stow-on-the-Wold 4 miles; Moreton-in-Marsh 8 miles; Chipping Norton 13 miles; Cheltenham 15.5 miles.

Located in the Cotswold Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the historic village of Bourton-on-the-Water dates back to Neolithic times with over 100 buildings being Grade II listed or higher. The picturesque high street nestles alongside the River Windrush over which several low stone bridges span, which is why Bourton-on-the-Water is known as the Venice in the Cotswolds. Tradition states that an annual football match is played in the summer, in the River Windrush with the banks lined with spectators, with the aim to score as many goals as possible and get as wet as possible! The village has an eclectic range of visitor attractions, including The Model Village, Cotswold Motor Museum, Birdland Park and Gardens as well as a Dragonfly Maze, monthly farmers’ market as well as many tea rooms, an artisan bakery, antiques and craft markets, traditional sweet shop, cycle hire and its very own perfumery. Nearby, Stow-on-the-Wold, originally an Iron Age Fort, epitomises traditional England. This ancient market town has played host to many fairs since the 12th century and today holds a biannual Gypsy Horse Fair, craft fairs and monthly farmers' market. The vast market square boasts an ancient cross at one end and the village stocks at the other, surrounded by an elegant array of Cotswold stone townhouses, antiques shops, tea rooms, traditional pubs, award-winning restaurants and its very own cricket museum. Also take a visit to the medieval town of Burford for a great day out where you can enjoy a trip to the Cotswold Wildlife Park and Gardens. The Saxon market town of Moreton-in-Marsh and the quintessential English village of Broadway are both within easy reach and make a great day out. The spa town of Cheltenham is, architecturally, the most complete Regency town in England with an incredible range of shops, cinemas, theatres, restaurants and pubs, it is famous for its horse racing festival in March, culminating in the Gold Cup steeplechase. Oxford, the oldest university city in England and sometimes called The City of Dreaming Spires has an abundance of prestigious attractions, including the 38 colleges of the university (half of which date back before 1600), the oldest university teaching room, the Bodleian Library, Ashmolean and Pitt Rivers Museums, and Botanic Gardens. Stratford-upon-Avon, Bath, Worcester and the waterfront city of Gloucester are also all within easy reach.
