This is a stunning village off of the A429 between Cirencester and Moreton-in-Marsh. Beautiful to wander through and full of visitor attractions for all the family. The river Windrush meanders through the village with little bridges to cross over it.
Two roads lead to Bourton-on-the-Water ,the one closer to Moreton-in-Marsh takes you to the large car park on Station Road. At the foot of this road is the High Street with most pubs along to the right which also takes you into the heart of the village and the river Windrush. However, the Old New Inn is to the left, just a minute away, from the village centre. Three pubs are along side the river and the other a few minutes beyond the shops.
All pubs serve Real Ale and food.
The Duke of Wellington (Wells) is a traditional, though modernised, village inn with food. There is a large beer garden to the rear where the river runs behind the pub. Varity of tables sizes at fron of bar with dining beyond.
