    My kids were so excited to find it was right next door to a traditional sweet shop and if you look really carefully in the model village, you can spot the cottage in model form!

  • "The cottage is very comfortable and had everything we needed for a short stay."

    The log burner was great but be sure to take logs with you as none are provided. The setting is very picturesque and we would recommend The Mousetrap for a great atmosphere and food!

  • "We, two couples, loved our stay at Inglenook Cottage."

    . We found it extremely comfortable and a pleasure to come back to after discovering what else was at our footstep. We loved the location within the beautiful village of Bourton on the Water. Lots of eateries within a short stroll if you don't want to cook or travel too far. The proximity to other villages was also perfect. I especially loved the walks we could do in the surrounding areas. Great for couples, a small family, or friends.

    KathyJun 2019

  • "Susan did a beautiful job cleaning the cottage !"

    Everything was so fresh and sparkling! Really nice.

    VickyJun 2019

  • "We spent a wonderful Easter weekend in Bourton on the Water."

    Inglenook Cottage is in a great location. The cottage itself is beautifully furnished with lovely comfortable beds & sofas and is well equipped for families. The little courtyard garden was a bonus & a lovely place to sit & relax. There are plenty of things to do in Bourton on the Water & it has a great choice of restaurants, cafes & shops. The riverside setting is stunning & whilst it does get busy, it’s still a lovely relaxing place to be. Although there isn’t any parking at the cottage itself, it wasn’t a problem as we unloaded the car at the cottage & then parked at Rissington Rd car park which is only a 5 minute walk along the river. We paid in advance online for the weekend (£6.50 p/day & free after 3pm) so it was no hassle. Overall, we had a fantastic weekend & we will definitely book Inglenook Cottage next time we come to stay here.

    The location could not be better than that! The house is intimate, perfect for a family with 2 children. Has 2 bathrooms which was perfect for us. We felt fabulous and we will go in autumn if we have the opportunity to find it available. Thank you for everything!, Ellen

  • "Fantastic location very cosy cottage ideal for a romantic break."

    AlisonSep 2018

  • "This is a great town home style cottage only steps away from Windrush ."

    ... Water only steps away. Keeping in mind that we traveled during the hottest summer in years, and right in the middle of the height of tourist season(!); this was a great escape. No a/c for concerned westerners...but ample fans and cool nights made up for that... and though steps away from all the action...quiet retreat. The small back garden is a wonderful respite, great variety of entertainment (DVD, Satellite, Netflix and Cable)... kitchen was well stocked and all appliances were just right for a stay... though a bit crushed by the crowds and toasted by the heat... staying at Inglenook convinced us that we want to return to Bourton. A great place -- you won't be disappointed! Will not come during tourist season... really a problem as busloads of tourists would arrive in the morning and camp out by the river -- with large chairs, boom boxes, inflatable pools -- at the end of the day trash littered the banks. But...someone came by in the evening and cleaned it all up. Once the busloads left (around the end of the day) -- quiet... by 10 p.m. at night... completely quiet, beautiful setting, but we won't return this time of year, but we WILL return! Inglenook -- however -- is a great 2 BR cottage with VERY nice neighbors! (Candy shop... Salon... Tea House and Pub -- what else do you need?!).

    We had a lovely week in a pretty village and will definitely come back again.

    Everything was perfect.

    It's well located and Bourton-on-the-Water is a gem in the beautiful cotswolds. Would love to return to your cottage!

The property

Tucked away in a quiet lane in the heart of the picturesque, Bourton-on-the-Water, Inglenook Cottage is a lovely Cotswold stone cottage, within a row of cottages.

The property has been lovingly refurbished to contain a perfect mix of stylish contemporary décor and charming character features.

Perfect for a relaxing break in the Cotswolds, Inglenook Cottage sleeps four guests in two well-presented bedrooms.

Step through the front door which opens up to a handy hallway, an ideal space to keep coats and shoes, which leads you into the welcoming sitting room which has lovely reclaimed wooden floors and a feature fireplace containing a woodburning stove, a fine room to relax with your loved ones and watch a DVD on the Smart TV.

The chef of the group will be delighted with the well-equipped kitchen, which is open-plan with the sitting room, so they will be kept company as the cook up a delicious meal, before you all gather in the bright conservatory which houses a dining table and lovely French doors leading out to the garden.

Concluding the ground floor is a handy cloakroom with a basin and WC.

Once you’ve enjoyed a tasty dinner with your loved ones, head up to the first-floor and have a relaxing shower before heading to one of the stylish bedrooms; the king-size master with views overlooking the courtyard garden and the second bedroom also overlooking the garden which houses a second king-size (which can be changed to twin beds on request).

Once you’ve had some well-deserved rest, head downstairs to make yourself a mug of tea to be enjoyed in the private, enclosed garden which has pretty Cotswold stone walls, mature shrubs, table and chairs and boasts a chiminea and barbecue.

Just a few steps outside of your front door you will see the River Windrush which is known for its low bridges, giving Bourton-on-the-Water the name ‘Venice of the Cotswolds’.

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

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.
