Welcome to The Old Coach House, brought to you exclusively by Character Cottages, local specialists in stylish, Cotswold holiday rentals.

The Old Coach House is a stylish Grade II listed property which sleeps four guests, in two bedrooms, with two spacious ensuite bathrooms. The original building was completed in 1897, the year of Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee, and this former Coach House retains many traditional features from that time, including exposed Cotswold stone walls, the stone entrance archway in the kitchen and upper mullion window on the first floor landing. Intriguingly, a well-preserved historical graphite inscription from its master builder, Walter Hayward of Northleach is framed in the sitting area along with a further chalk inscription dated 1894 believed to refer to the visit of the Queen to Ireland that year.

Recently refurbished to a high standard, the property has a warm, contemporary interior and modern facilities including wireless internet access, a Smart TV and a well-equipped kitchen with underfloor heating, all of which blend effortlessly with the stunning character features. There is an attractive courtyard garden at the rear and allocated parking for two cars parked in tandem is available on a shared driveway.

The Old Coach House is located in the beautiful village of Bourton-on-the-Water, often voted as one of the prettiest villages in England. Affectionately referred to as the ‘Venice of the Cotswolds’ due to the low arched bridges that cross over the River Windrush, Bourton has a number of popular pubs, restaurants, tea rooms and shops to enjoy and a wide range of tourist attractions on its doorstep, including the Model Village, the Cotswold Motoring and Toy Museum, the Dragonfly Maze and the slightly further afield Sezincote Gardens and House, a 200 year old Mogul palace.

Bourton is surrounded by the fabulous countryside which forms the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with many walks and cycle routes to explore, including the challenging Winchcombe to Burford cycle route which passes through Bourton itself. Its central location within the Cotswolds makes it a good base for exploring the other lovely towns and villages in the area, including Moreton-in-Marsh, Stow-on-the-Wold and The Slaughters. World famous destinations such as Blenheim Palace, Oxford, Stratford-upon-Avon and Bath are also easily accessible for day trips.

Important Customer Notice:

Bourton-on-the-Water, Cotswolds, Regno Unito

Bourton-on-the-Water is arguably one of the most popular villages of the Cotswolds, especially amongst overseas visitors. Having been nicknamed the "Venice of the Cotswolds", its scenery is the main draw for travellers. The River Windrush meanders through beautiful English countryside before passing over rapids next to the Old Mill and arriving at Bourton.

The river is fed from many springs, with the source approximately ten miles from the village and, after flowing under the bridges of Bourton, it passes other villages before eventually joining the Thames.

here are various attractions in the village, including the famous Birdland, which is home to a variety of birds from around the world. Here visitors can see parrots, pelicans, flamingos and penguins to name just a few, with experienced keepers feeding the birds and leading demonstrations.

The Model Village is well worth a visit, as Bourton is the only village in the Cotswolds to have a one-ninth scale replica of itself. It is carefully maintained and has all of the characterful buildings including the Old Water Mill and the Old New Inn. Those lucky enough to witness snow in the winter months will notice photographers at the model village trying to get the perfect picture of the snowy scene.

Another family favourite is the Dragonfly Maze. This yew maze leads visitors through the labyrinth, gathering clues in order to find the pavilion in the centre which enables them to unlock the final secret! The maze was constructed by Kit Williams, author of the golden hare treasure hunt book, "Masquerade".

Food & Drink

Bourton has a variety of places to eat and drink, including cafes, tea rooms, pubs and restaurants, with a range of prices to suit all budgets. The list below is a small sample of the options available:
The Chester House Hotel and The Croft Restaurant (www.chesterhousehotel.com): Breakfast, morning coffee, lunches and evening meals in a riverside restaurant. You can enjoy freshly prepared, local produce throughout the day and night, with seasonal specials added to the menu daily.
The Duke of Wellington (www.dukeofwellingtonbourton.co.uk): A local village inn aiming to provide fresh home cooked food with a friendly service. There is a light snacking menu, a full menu and a wonderful range of desserts and hot beverages. As well as daily home cooked specials, on Sundays you can enjoy a traditional carvery with all the trimmings from 12-6pm.
The Mousetrap Inn (www.mousetrap-inn.com): A traditionally run Cotswold stone Inn, with a history dating back to the building of the railways in the 18th Century. Serving home-made food, along with fantastic, locally brewed real ales.
The Village Restaurant & Tearooms (www.thevillagerestaurant.co.uk): Traditional, home cooked food in a friendly atmosphere, overlooking the river Windrush, in the heart of Bourton-on-the-Water.
