The property

Settled in the picturesque village of Bourton-on-the-Water, is this charming home-from-home, Callow Cottage, the ideal retreat for a family or group of friends who are seeking a peaceful break to the Cotswolds, sleeping up to six guests in three well-presented bedrooms.

Arriving at the property you will be welcomed by a private driveway which hosts two cars as you load your luggage into the practical entrance hall, perfect for storing coats and shoes, before moving into the bright and airy sitting room, containing a warming woodburning stove, Smart TV with Netflix and Amazon Prime subscriptions and dining table; the room is finished to a contemporary style and is perfect for curling up on the sofa with your loved ones and feeling the warmth from the woodburning stove.

The well-equipped, country-style kitchen is a great space for you to show-off your culinary skills, before gathering with your group at the dining table in the sitting room to plan your exciting trip itinerary.

Completing the ground floor is a useful cloakroom housing a basin and WC.

As the evening grows darker, retire to the first floor where you will find two beautifully presented bedrooms; bedroom two hosts a double bed and bedroom three has a king-size bed (which can be changed to twin beds on request) and has views overlooking the street below.

Look forward to escaping with your favourite book with a hot soak in the bath, before heading off to bed.

Up a second flight of stairs, in the eaves of the property, you will find the master bedroom which has an inviting super-king-size bed where you can chill out with your loved one and catch up on your favourite show on the Freeview TV, and boasts a tastefully-decorated en-suite bathroom complete with a roll-top bath for you to indulge and relax in.

In the morning, head out into the garden for some fresh air, as a gentle slope leads out from French doors in the living room into the pretty courtyard garden; the delightful outside space features fragrant flowers in hanging pots and is home to two Rattan furniture suites, and a gas barbecue to take advantage of in warmer months.

Bourton-on-the-Water has been regularly voted one of the prettiest villages in England and is known as the ‘Venice of the Cotswolds’, home to a wealth of attractions and shops, restaurants and tea rooms, such as Cotswolds Antiques and Tea Room and Coach & Horses pub.

Spend some time by the River Windrush which has lovely bridges, surround yourself by wildlife at Birdland Park and Gardens or have some fun at the miniature replica of the Cotswold stone village at The Model Village.

Nearby Lower Slaughter is widely regarded as one of England's most beautiful villages and is home to The Slaughters Country Inn which is a well-regarded, quintessential country inn, offering lovely food and drinks – not to be missed!

Stow-on-the-Wold is the highest of the Cotswold villages and is a small market town with an array of boutique shops, tea rooms, pubs and restaurants; indulge in a bite to eat and drinks at The Stag at Stow, or revel in the scrumptious tea and cakes at The Old Bakery Tea Room.

Visit Cotswold Wildlife Park and Gardens where you will find over 250 species of animals and be inspired by the beautiful landscaping and seasonal displays throughout the park in nearby Burford, known as Southern “gateway to the Cotswolds”.

Perfectly located to discover all the Cotswolds has to offer, Callow Cottage is the perfect base for families and friends alike.

About the location


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.
