Fosseside House is an excellently located Cotswold holiday home which sleeps ten guests, in five welcoming bedrooms, with four bathrooms. This double fronted property is deceptively spacious, with an attached annexe at the rear, housing additional living space including a games room! With all this space and its central location, there is something for everyone in the party to enjoy, from a meander along the river, to cosying up by the wood burner or enjoying a game of table football, the whole group can relax comfortably together.

Location Information

Bourton-on-the-Water, also known as the 'Venice of the Cotswolds' is a bustling Cotswold village with a good selection of pubs, restaurants, tearooms and shops. We personally love Smiths of Bourton for gourmet burgers and cocktails and The Cornish Bakery offering all kinds of baked treats! There is a fantastic offering of activities for children to enjoy and you are only a short drive to other famous Cotswold towns like Stow-on-the-Wold and Burford.
For your shopping essentials, there is a Londis on the high street or on the outskirts of Bourton-on-the-Water is a larger Co-op.
