  • "Beautiful cottage in the Cotswolds!"

    Excellent location and really made our trip the perfect getaway! Would 100% stay again and recommend the cottage to friends and family! Thank you so much! The bottle of Prosecco in the fridge ready for our arrival was the icing on the cake too!

  • "A lovely cottage in a great location for exploring Bourton on the Water and the rest of the Cotswolds."

    Lots of shops and restaurants within walking distance, as well as plenty more a short drive away. Highly recommend a circular walk also from the front door to Naunton and back through the Slaughters - brilliant! The accommodation itself is lovely and authentic but with some modern touches - we felt at home straight away! We stopped as just a couple but plenty of room for two couples or a small family comfortably. We didn’t need much help from the owner but they were very helpful when we released we had left some stuff behind so full marks there too!

  • "A wonderful cottage within the shortest of short strolls away from delightful Bourton on the Water."

    A roaring fire, a glass of wine whilst curled up on the sofa - simply magical. A fabulous retreat to the Cotswolds.

  • "My family and I really enjoyed our stay at the cottage."

    Nice period features in a great area. The cottage was well setup with the all the modern amenities you could need without losing the character of the cottage. Parking was easy and the location is a short walk to the main high street. Highly recommended.

  • "Absolutely beautiful cottage in the perfect location!"

    Right in the heart of the town, everything was walking distance away. The cottage was so clean and cosy, had everything you’d need in the kitchen, and had a great garden area outside. There was also a bonus bottle of Prosecco on arrival. Couldn’t have asked for more, we will definitely be back again.

  • "This is a lovely cottage."

    Not for anyone over 6ft but perfect for our family to relax in and explore the cotswolds from. Very clean, lovely kitchen and dining area, great bath. Would recommend.

    Very roomy cottage.

    ZarpanaAug 2020

  • "The property was lovely - really clean, good sized bedrooms and a great kitchen/dining and lounge space."

    The location is quiet though central - ideal for getting around Bourton-on-the-Water as even though we had a car (there is off street parking), we could easily walk around the town. We cooked one of the nights during our stay and appreciated all the thoughtful touches in the kitchen to make this an easy experience - good cooking utensils, pots/pans, and basic oil, salt etc. Thanks again for a great stay - would highly recommend.

    DavidAug 2017

  • "The cottage has very good facilities and is close to the middle of Bourton on the Water."

    The only drawback is traffic noise as it is beside the road however this is compensated for by the location and ease of walking into Bourton.

    ColinAug 2017

    We particularly liked the outside areas, which we were fortunate enough to take full advantage of l, being blessed with good weather for the duration of our stay! Space for parking was also a distinct advantage. We have no hesitation in recommending Weir Cottage.

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.
