From humble beginnings and originally two cottages, Bourton Croft Cottage is built of local Cotswold stone under a traditional Cotswold stone roof and now boasts the ultimate in amenity and comfort. No expense has been spared in creating a wonderful place to stay, just 100 feet from the river that is the very 'water' in Bourton-on-the-water.
Positioned in the middle of the Oxford (33 miles), Bath (51 miles), Stratford-upon-Avon (25 miles) triangle these historical towns are each circa one hour's drive away; there is much to explore by car, but so much more by foot or cycle. Typical Cotswold towns are Burford (12 miles), Chipping Norton (13 miles), Cirencester (16 miles), Moreton-in-Marsh (8 miles) and Stow-on-the-Wold (4 miles). The Cotswold town of Chipping Campden (14 miles) is notable for being the home of the Arts and Crafts movement, founded by William Morris at the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th centuries. William Morris lived, occasionally, in Broadway Tower (13 miles), near Broadway (15 miles) a folly now in a country park.
Bourton Croft Cottage is situated in the very heart of the Cotswolds which designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in 1966. Its an area in south central England and contains the Cotswolds Hills, a range of rolling hills which rise from the meadows of the upper Thames to an escarpment, known as the Cotswold Edge, above the Severn Valley and Evesham Vale. The area is defined by the bedrock of Jurassic limestone which creates a type of grassland habitat rare in the UK, and which is quarried for the golden coloured Cotswold stone of which Bourton Croft Cottage is built.

Ah no, we are sorry on both counts, no pets and no smoking. We love dogs but we had to make a call, hence the hypo-allergenic pillows rather than pure goose down. The thing is, people that don't get a reaction to dogs have no problem in a dog free environment, but the reverse is not true.
Bourton Croft Cottage was built before the wheelchair so its not the easiest place to get around in a wheelchair, however that won't be a problem to players of wheelchair rugby and there is room inside. You are most welcome, but be warned the stairs & steps could be the issue. We do have a Hearing & Mobility Store, they can make your life easier while on holiday from the hire of a wheelchair to a suction grab rail for your bath or shower.
