  • "We had a wonderful stay at Barton Cottage over Christmas and also for my other halfs birthday."

    The best location as just a stones throw to the high street, perfect for walks with our dogs meandering around the local sights/cafes/restaurants & pubs. We will most definitely be back!!! Super host, super comfortable cottage and excellently kitted out. We will definitely recommend. Literally couldn't falter our stay, the only little request would be to provide a poofie/footstool but that is purely our personal preference!! We were excited to see what looked like electric recliners as we have recliners at home but they did not appear to work (unless we were doing something wrong of course

    Thank you for taking the time to provide this review. We're so glad you enjoyed Christmas and your special celebration at Barton Cottage and made the most of the surrounding amenities. We would love to welcome you again. Best wishes Manor Cottages Property Owner

  • "Absolutely lovely cottage."

    We had a lovely stay at Barton cottage. Was a short easy walk into town. Parking was fine, we managed to squeeze the rear of our car into the space in order to unpack and then parked just over the road. The cottage was comfortable enough, beds very comfy and had everything we needed. Was very cozy in the evenings with the log burner going. As it was Christmas time when we came, the cottage was decorated for Christmas with lovely little ornaments dotted around and a Christmas Tree which was lovely. There was also a very generous welcome gift of biscuits, milk and wine etc in the fridge. I loved all the little extras, such as honey and jam for your toast and tea, coffee, hot chocolate and Alpen. Those sorts of things were a lovely touch. My only feedback (and I really am clutching to find something) is you could do with another arm chair to sit 4 people comfortably of an evening. The sofa can squeeze 3 people but it would not be comfortable. Also, the shower head is very low, I just about got underneath at 5 foot 5 but my husband is 6 foot 2 and had to angle it in a way that causes water to miss the screen completely. It needs to be raised as high as possible. Other than those things, this cottage is perfect for a stay in Bourton-on the -Water. Very comfortable for a very good price

    A beautiful well equipped cottage, good Wi-Fi, an up to date smart tv which we were able to log in to our netflix and Disney plus accounts, the kitchen was very well equipped, every utensil we needed was there, even had fresh milk in the fridge and a complimentary bottle of wine on arrival, the beds were very comfortable, the cottage was very clean, perfect location, very close to the main village and shops but just far away enough from the hustle and bustle, perfect, loved it here, would definitely stay here again, the only negative for me was the size of the driveway but to be fair that was clearly stated when we booked

The property

This 250-year-old, three-story stone-built cottage, Barton Cottage, is located in the centre of charming Bourton-On-The-Water in Gloucestershire.

This cottage is a great location for a trip to the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with character features such as beams and exposed stone, and facilities just a short walk away.

When you arrive, there is a rear, fenced garden with a bistro set where you may have a cup of tea in the mornings.

Inside, the kitchen, dining area, and sitting areas combine to provide a social centre for your company, with all you need for a relaxing, self-catering getaway, including a well-equipped cooking space and dining table for four.

After supper, gather around the woodburning stove and watch your favourite programmes on the Smart TV.

After unwinding with your loved ones, go upstairs to the bedrooms; the first floor has a light and airy twin and a contemporary bathroom, while the second storey has a king-size bed with a vaulted ceiling.

Explore your surroundings and treat your loved ones to a dinner out; you'll be spoiled for choice with the range of pubs and restaurants in the centre of Bourton-On-The-Water, or there's The Mousetrap Inn, which is just a stone's throw from the cottage.

Make your way to the high-street for a variety of boutique shops and the charming Model Village, which is a great place to spend an afternoon.

Walkers will appreciate the local Windrush path, which travels along the Windrush River, while bird watchers should visit Jurassic Journey.

Outside of the village, the National Trust's Chedworth Roman Villa, an old estate of 4th-century ruins with a museum, may be found.

Animal lovers can travel further south to see the Cotswold Wildlife Park and Gardens, or if you plan ahead of time, you will be in a prime location for visiting Cheltenham Racecourse and the famed Cheltenham Festival.

Gloucester is also easily accessible from the cottage for shopping, culture, and more hustle and bustle if you prefer too!

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.
