Description

Bourton-on-the-Water is a village and civil parish in Gloucestershire, England that lies on a wide flat vale within the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The village of Bourton-on-the-Water has a population 3297 inhabitants (2009 est). A population of this size makes Bourton-on-the-Water a rather large village as it actually exceeds the combined population of nearby Stow-on-the-Wold and Burford, both of which are considered small market towns.

The village of Bourton-on-the-Water is famous for is its picturesque High Street, flanked by long wide greens and the River Windrush that runs through them. The river is crossed by several low, arched stone bridges. These arched bridges lending to Bourton-on-the-Water being called the “Venice of the Cotswolds”. Also like Venice, Bourton-on-the-Water often has more visitors than residents during peak times of the tourist season.

Bourton-on-the-Water parish is bounded by the Fosse Way along the northwest, while the eastern boundary is defined by a series of streams, namely: Slaughter brook, the River Dikler, and the River Windrush; the southern boundary is associated with a watercourse that runs between Bourton Hill and Broadwater Bottom.

Special Designations

The small historic core of Bourton-on-the-Water along with associated areas along the River Windrush have been designated an UK Conservation Area.
