Pear Tree Cottage is a beautiful, traditional Cotswold stone cottage, located on a quiet lane in the heart of the famous market town of Bourton-on-the-Water. Often referred to as the 'Venice of the Cotswolds', due to the lovely river that runs through the town, Bourton has a wide range of shops, pubs and restaurants, as well as numerous lovely walks right on the doorstep. Bourton is also perfectly located for exploring the many other lovely towns and villages of the Cotswolds region, as well as further afield places, such as Stratford-upon-Avon, Oxford and Bath. Dating back to the 17th century, Pear Tree Cottage has a wealth of traditional character features, including oak beams, exposed Cotswold stone walls, a wood burning stove and the original well for the cottage (now safely covered!). The owners have recently been modernising the cottage, whilst retaining the original character features, with a new kitchen fitted and a ground floor bathroom installed, as well as providing modern facilities such as wireless internet access and a flatscreen TV. Pear Tree Cottage sleeps a maximum of six people, in three bedrooms, with three bathrooms. There is a lovely garden at the rear of the cottage and free street parking is usually available outside or close to the property. The cottage is perfect for friends or families seeking a relaxing break in a beautiful, traditional Cotswold cottage, located in one of the country's loveliest market towns. House Rules Security deposits Security deposits are not required (please note that guests are still liable for any damage or additional cleaning required as a result of their actions). Occupancy The maximum occupancy of the property is six guests, at any point during your stay. Unauthorised over occupancy is a breach of our terms and conditions and may result in the cancellation of your booking and additional charges. Please consult us prior to booking if you wish to discuss the possibility of having more than six guests at the property. Infants who sleep in a cot do not count towards the occupancy figure, however, due to space restrictions, the occupancy figure may only be exceeded by up to two additional infants. Pets Regrettably, pets are not accepted. Bed sizes and configurations Bedroom 1 (first floor): King size bed and wash basin Bedroom 2 (first floor): 2x single beds and wash basin Bedroom 3 (second floor): 2x single beds Bathrooms Ground floor: Walk-in shower, toilet and wash basin First floor: Bath with overhead shower, toilet and wash basin Bedroom 3 ensuite: Toilet and wash basin Heating, fuel and logs The property has a gas central heating system. Electricity and gas are included in the rental price. An initial basket of logs is provided for the wood burning stove in the living room and further log supplies can be purchased locally. Child friendly facilities A travel cot (without linen) and a high chair are provided. The property's garden is enclosed. Parking Free on-street parking is usually available outside, or close to, the property. If travelling in more than one car, due to space limitations, guests may need to use one of the public car parks (Pay & Display) a short walk away from the property. Initial consumables A small quantity of initial consumables is provided for your convenience (eg. tea, coffee, sugar, dishwasher tablets, washing up liquid, soap, washing powder, toilet rolls, etc), however, you should not expect the quantity of these provisions to be sufficient for the duration of your stay. Accessibility, health and safety This is a very old property and has many character features, including low ceilings and doors, uneven floors, steep stairs to the first floor, steep winding stairs from the first to the second floor, an open sided landing space at the top of the staircase to the second floor, and some steps on the ground floor of the house, all of which could pose difficulty to guests with limited mobility, or carrying babies, both in terms of their general movement and their ability to quickly exit the house in the event of an emergency. The smoke and CO detectors operate on a sound only basis and, therefore, those who have serious impairment of hearing may not be able to hear the alarm systems and could be at risk.More

About the neighbourhood
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.
Getting around
The Cotswolds is a rural location and whilst there is access to public transport, it is highly recommended that you have a car.
