About Jack's House

Jack's House offers the complete Cotswold holiday cottage package. Tucked away, the cottage is within walking distance of the popular village centre of Bourton-on-the-Water with, shops, cafes, pubs and the River Windrush passing through. The modern holiday home is made from the local honey-coloured stone that typifies properties in this area, with a flowering cottage garden and a private sun-trap patio. The traditional layout sleeps four people in two bedrooms and is ideal for couples or families who want to stay somewhere central yet quiet.

Bourton-on-the-Water is one of the Cotswolds' best-known villages. It's difficult to find a more lovely setting than sitting on the village green and watching the ducks swim under the stone footbridges that cross the gently flowing River Windrush. Although it's a popular tourist attraction, the village has a strong community and staying in this cottage means you can enjoy it after the day-trippers leave. Attractions in Bourton-on-the-Water include the miniature Model Village, Dragonfly Maze, Birdland Park and Gardens, and the Cotswold Motor Museum. If you enjoy a pint (or two) of lager, a tour of the Cotswold Brewery is a must. The brewery is around a mile's walk from the cottage, ideal as they are generous with their samples!

Outside of Bourton-on-the-Water, the beauty of the Cotswold countryside beckons. The picturesque rural landscape is easy to explore by foot or bicycle thanks to an extensive network of footpaths and cycling routes. Local guides offer lots of different types of tours to suit your interests, and bike hire is available from the bike shop in the village. Alternatively, hire a classic car and tour the country lanes in style.

Places to visit include the nearby and walkable Slaughters (Upper and Lower Slaughter), Bibury with the much-photographed Arlington Row, Burford with its boutiques, Stow-on-the-Wold's antique shops and its church's "tree door", and Castle Combe. Stratford-Upon-Avon and Oxford are under an hour's drive for a full day of shopping and sightseeing or bag a bargain at Bicester Designer Outlet Shopping Village. Cheltenham's shops and racecourse are even closer.

You'll love the comfort and convenience of Jack's House, which is the perfect home-away-from-home for your Cotswold holiday. It's available all year round, including for short stays.
