Wander Through Burton-On-The-Water, Gloucestershire, England

The next stop I made in the Cotswolds was Burton-on-the-Water.

Venice of the Cotswolds

Burton-on-the-Water is exactly as its name suggests, on the water. It is a charming village with canals running through it. You can stroll beside them and cross them on little foot bridges. Burton-on-the-Water was much more touristy than where I stayed in Chipping Campden. Its charm definitely makes up for the increase in tourists and is more than worth a visit.

I found a public car park and ditched my car to start my stroll around the village. This gorgeous stone wall was my path from the car park into town.

From the stone pathway, it opens up to this. To say I was amazed would be an understatement. I loved the atmosphere here. Everyone was just strolling along the canal and enjoying the gorgeous day.

You will also find beautiful cottages made out of the typical, golden Cotswold stone.

My one stop in Burton-on-the-Water was for an ice cream. Can you blame me? Look how cute the store front is! I’m sure this ice cream shop and the village in general are much busier in the summer months. I visited in early May so I would recommend that time of year if you plan on visiting.

Carrying my ice cream and finishing my stroll through the main part of the village was so nice.

This was my first of several villages I stopped at this day. I would love to go back and enjoy lunch along the canal or stop into a couple of their shops. I think a great trip would be over a week, just in the Cotswolds, to have more time in each village.

As I said before, I think Burton-on-the-Water is definitely worth a stop on your journey through the Cotswolds. Depending on the time of year, it may be busy with tourists but the crowds were manageable in early May when I went. I didn’t stay here myself so if you are interested in spending the night, I would recommend checking the village website, here, for accommodations.

    I haven’t visited this part of England before, but it looks gorgeous – especially when the sun’s out. I’m hoping that when lockdown restrictions continue to lift in Britain, that people will explore their own country more and boost the economy. We all need to play our part to help to support the small independent businesses that rely on tourism.
