A short four miles through more quintessential English countryside brings you to Bourton-on-the-Water, one of the prettiest villages in England, and is known as “Venice of the Cotswolds.” Famous for its attractive stone bridges crossing the bubbling River Windrush all along the center of the village, Bourton has a unique charm. Treat yourself to English tea and delicious homemade cakes at one of the many tea rooms before making your way to your lovely country manor house hotel just outside Bourton-on-the-Water.

Consignes de sécurité

There are some road crossings, always be aware of traffic and be sure to use a pavement/sidewalk where possible, where it isn’t walk on the right-hand side of the road,

Some of the ground can be uneven, with steep descents and muddy/boggy ground. Ensure you have suitable footwear and step cautiously where needed, the mud is especially tricky in wet weather.

A note about farms and animals: Be very aware of closing gates behind you. Remember, animals on a farm are not pets and can be closer to a wild animal than a domestic pet - particularly for dogs. The main risk today is horses as the path often crosses fields with grazing horses.

When crossing the streams, be wary of slippery and loose stones, if you feel unsure bring walking poles for support, and you can always find a more suitable crossing a little up or downstream.
