A wonderful cottage, with great amenities, in a quiet and calm part of town, but only a very short walk into Bourton. Perfect.

We had a lovely break at the Cottage. It is a lovely cottage in the middle of the village so a great place to base yourself. It was clean and had everything we needed and will look to stop again for a longer time to explore the local area

We found the lovely Briar Cottage all as expected and more after experiencing a fabulous seven nights stay in the wonderful Bourton On The Water or as we now call it (Bourton In The Snow) following the very festive weather we experienced and so enjoyed during our stay in December 2022. We are certainly Intending to book again soon.

Beautiful cottage in a fantastic location. The cottage was spotlessly clean throughout upon arrival. The owner had left cakes, tea, coffee and milk, which we appreciated. The wi-fi connection was very good. There was a telephone inside the property for incoming calls. Nice garden area and allocated parking. Property easy walking distance to shops, Read moreriver and local attractions. Extremely quiet and private away from busier areas of the village. Highly recommend and would stay again :-) Hide
