The property

Set in the heart of Bourton-on-the-Water and mere moments from the village center, Tuesday Cottage is a beautiful 17th century home that manages to retain its timeless character, whilst also displaying a contemporary feel.

Upon entering the property, you will be immediately greeted by a snug and relaxing living area that provides seating for five and comes with a log burning stove, as well as a Smart TV and DVD player.

This room provides a wonderful and relaxing atmospheric retreat with the large, inglenook fireplace and the history of the cottage is reflected in the beams which have been brought back to their original state.

Moving forward, you will find the kitchen/diner, which provides you a place to sit and relax and discuss the day's events over a beautifully prepared meal.

The kitchen is well equipped with modern appliances to make your time spent as relaxing as possible.

Rising up to the first floor, you will find a master bedroom which features a king size bed, plenty of storage and a gorgeous view to the local area.

You will also find the beautifully appointed bathroom, finished to an exceptionally high standard which adds a real touch of luxury, featuring a generous walk in shower, gorgeous roll top bath, toilet, and hand basin.

Rising up from the first floor you will find some narrow and steep stairs which lead to a room with a double bed, wardrobe storage and generous view of the area.

The second, single room on the second floor is again accessed via steep, open tread stairs - a quirky and atmospheric space which again gives evidence of the age of the cottage.

Externally, given that the cottage dates back hundreds of years, and sits within the very centre of the village, you have a surprisingly large outside private space to enjoy.

There is a secluded, graceful outside seating area with two sets of tables and chairs and garden bench, and provides a tranquil setting in the middle of this bustling village - ideal for a spot of al-fresco dining, or to simply sit and relax.

In terms of location, Tuesday Cottage could not be better positioned, as it rests only 50 yards from the iconic River Windrush which bisects the village, and gives it the title of 'the Venice of the Cotswolds'.

In the village you will find plenty to keep you occupied, with an array of pubs and restaurants, as well as attractions such as the famous Model Village, Cotswold Motoring and Toy Museum, Birdland Park & Gardens, and Bourton Vale Equestrian Centre.

A little further, take a stroll to the pretty village of Lower Slaughter, or travel a little further to the quintessential Cotswold towns of Burford, Stow on the Wold and Broadway, all within 10 miles.

There is something at Tuesday Cottage for everyone to enjoy and get the best out of a retreat to the Cotswolds.

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.
