Bourton on the Water

Enjoy a welcoming break at Southlands

Hello,

We are Chris and Dave and we opened Southlands as a bed and breakfast in Bourton-On-the-Water in 2003.  Having previously holidayed there for a number of years we knew we wanted to relocate to the area and set up a hospitality business.  The search began for a suitable property and we stumbled upon Southlands, a former residential home.

We set about the renovations ourselves, sometimes wondering if we may be mad, as many an arduous hour was spent reforming the somewhat shabby building.  On a positive note it meant that we were able to bring a true traditional cottage style with a modern twist to each room.  Previous guests comment on how they love the décor, with its nod to tradition rather than a bland and characterless room, they feel it sits perfectly with the traditions of the village.

 Southlands is an extensive mature traditional property set within pretty gardens on the edge of picturesque, Bourton-on-the Water, in the heart of the North Cotswolds.  Due to the current covid situation we have made the decision to only open up The Cottage this season.

It’s also pet friendly and the perfect base for the many beautiful walks around the area.

We hope to be able to welcome you to Southlands soon.
