There are much nicer Cotswold villages than Bourton in my opinion, However Bourton is a honeypot and is drowning under its popularity.

This is typical of many tourist information centers by offering great information on local attractions etc. We used it for advice on local walks and were quickly directed to pamphlets and maps that would be suitable - purchased a great walkways map of the area and spent the next three days visiting the local Cotswold villages on foot.

This was a stop off on a drive to Gloucestershire, and so glad that we stopped. The town is cute, and a great place for a picnic on the grass near the water. There is free parking for 90 mins but this is very busy. Enough time to have a bite to eat and visit the Model village.. which is a mini replica of Bourton on water... having walked around and then seen the model village was a better way, as you appreciate the detail. Worth a visit for sure!

We have visited before but in these times of social distancing requirements this is not the place to be. Just as beautiful as ever but so full of people who have no idea os social distancing, we couldn’t leave quick enough and get out into the beautiful surrounding countryside. I do hope this beautiful place doesn’t get put into local lockdown because of 5he inconsiderate visitors

I called in for some advice on local walks. The lady that served me seemed annoyed that I didn’t use their sanitiser but used my own instead (Hand eczema so use a special one). She was pretty rude and sniffy thoughout. I left with no information that I couldn’t have found very quickly and easily on my phone and was charged nearly £3 for a ten page booklet. As for Bourton-on-the-Water itself, it’s an absolutely beautiful place, I’ve never seen anywhere quite like it. It was incredibly busy which took the shine off a little so try and go and a quieter time if you can.

Arrived in Bourton on the water desperate for the toilet.
The council run toilet next to the parking area and tourist area charges 20 pence to get in them.
In a Covid world where I no longer carry cash this means the toilets are unusable 😡
Either do it free of charge or charge contactless credit card .
Why do you need to charge given the amount of tourists you have flooding in .
Is this not a public right to be funded by you ?

Beautiful place but unfortunately incredibly busy:/ to the point that I felt lost in the sea of people rather than enjoying surroundings. I guess I would try to come back when the weather is bad to actually be able to walk around the town. Therefore bitter sweet experience.

We thought with the weather being okay we would take the hour and a half drive there. Unfortunately the roads were absolutely crammed so it actually took 3 hours. There was no where to park as there were thousands of other people in this tiny village, none of them were following social distancing.

I felt like I was in a foreign country 95% of them were Indians, sounds racist but I don't have anything against these people but they left their rubbish on the floor next to the overflowing bins. Took up loads of space with 20ft square picnic blankets and were in huge friend/family groups of 20 to 40 people. There were maybe 10,000 all crammed into this tiny village, versus less than a thousand black and white people who were equally as bad with social distancing.

So I couldn't appreciate the architecture and ambiance of this quaint pretty little town. They may have been UK nationals but they were only talking and shouting in Hindi and it was all you could hear. I looked at the queues for the antiques centre and motor museum, which were huge and decided to go back to my vehicle and leave. So I would say it was a massively disappointing! I may have just picked a bad day but I wouldn't bother going back.
