  • "Well place property - walking distance to village centre but away from the tourists."

  • "A beautiful property very close to the village."

    It is spacious and very attractive with lots of space for large families or groups. A well equipped kitchen and lovely dining room and lounge. As it’s a traditional cottage it is naturally quite dark inside but we were lucky enough to enjoy beautiful weather and could enjoy being out in the spacious garden. We couldn’t however find the cushions for the outdoor sofa.? My only criticism would be the towels were quite small for adults and the window in the downstairs toilet faces the road and is clear glass. The blind had to be kept closed! Overall a perfect location and a very pretty place to stay. We would definitely return.

  • "Robin's Nest is a wonderful, well equipped house in an idyll location."

    We had everything we needed for a superb week long stay and will be re-booking for a return visit soon. Initially I thought that only 2 showers for 10 people would not be enough but it worked out well. Also, inspite of detailed instructions, it was still confusing knowing what recycling to put where! And the parking wasn't clear but we were always able to get 3 cars parked. We had beautiful weather and it was nice to be able to sit outside having morning coffee or afternoon tea. A huge bonus was being able to walk into Bourton-on-the-water, especially during the weekend and Bank Holiday as the traffic through the village was particularly busy then. Definitely a 5 star property.

    Lovely property, had everything we needed, the beds were really comfy we all slept great, the outside space was good as we managed to have some sunshine, the best was the location, not even a 10 min walk into the village which was absolutely beautiful

  • "A lovely cottage, just 10 minutes walk to the centre of Bourton-on-the-Water."

    Clean, well equipped. 3 longer walks that we did started from a footpath next to the cottage..... ideal! Wheelchair hire just 5 minutes walk away, for one of our number who needed it (£10 per day, £30 per week). Thank you

The property

Nestled in the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, in the Gloucestershire village of Bourton-On-The-Water is Robins Nest, a charming, five-bedroom cottage.

Complete with a pet-friendly garden, characterful living spaces, and flexible sleeping arrangements, Robins Nest makes a wonderful abode for a group of ten, well-positioned near a variety of amenities and attractions in the heart of England.

Benefit from ample off-road parking for four cars, ahead of reaching your new, delightful home-from-home, encompassed by pretty blooms and a well-presented garden.

Step indoors to reach the well-equipped kitchen/diner, where you can prepare meals and spend time with your loved ones, before gathering around the formal dining table; with beams overhead, exposed stonework through, and a gas fire to light, a homely feel runs throughout the property.

If you'd prefer to dine outdoors, set the patio table, and bask in your surroundings, before cosying up in the sitting room, with plenty of plush seating available to gather around the TV or delve into a good book.

As day turns into night, prepare for sleep in either the bathroom or ground-floor shower room, before catching some rest from one of five bedrooms on offer; select between three doubles and two twins, dotted across the ground floor and first floor.

Awaken to a fresh coffee in the garden, before exploring the area, with plenty of attractions on your doorstep, including the Cotswold Motoring Museum & Toy Collection, The Model Village, the Birdland Park & Gardens, and The Dragonfly Maze, perfect for visiting as a family.

Travelling north, stop off at Sezincote House & Garden for a tour, taking in its beautiful grounds and characterful architecture, or spend some time outdoors at the Batsford Arboretum and Garden Centre.

Those who enjoy watersports and swimming will relish a visit to the Cotswold Country Park & Beach, with the Cotswold Sculpture Park also nearby, perfect for making a day of it, whilst the Cleveland Lakes Nature Reserve is worth packing your walking boots for, for a nature-filled hike.

Be spoilt for choice when booking Robins Nest.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £500.

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.
