Region: Gloucestershire - more
The village cobblers in Victorian times, a tiny sweet shop since the 1950s and Moorcroft retailer for twenty years, the Cotswold Shop is one of the oldest buildings in the village. The beams for the first floor were taken from ships from the fleet of Admiral Nelson. It's a miniature gem, but one that's packed with sweets and gorgeous pottery. Bourton-on-the-Water is set in a beautiful part of the Cotswold region in Gloucestershire. It's a perfect setting to indulge your sweet tooth or view our stunning Moorcroft pottery.

About Moorcroft Pottery
Moorcroft have been handcrafting art pottery from their factory in Stoke-on-Trent since 1897 and examples of their work, both old and new, fetch high prices in the major salesrooms of the world.

No pottery with a pedigree like that of Moorcroft has survived into the 21st century. Small, fiercely independent and with a select studio of top designers, Moorcroft pottery uses the labour-intensive techniques of slip-trailing and tubelining, which gives each piece a raised effect that highlights elements of the design. While many of the shapes are traditional - indeed unchanged for over a hundred years - Moorcroft's designers are young, vibrant and among the best in the world. Their inspiration and styles are wide ranging and intriguing, and it's this combination of old and new, along with the sheer quality of Moorcroft's production, that has insured its survival at a time when many British ceramics companies have disappeared.

Bourton on the Water
Seemingly suspended in time, Bourton is one of the prettiest villages in England

Situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Bourton-on-the-Water is the quintessential Cotswold village. The river Windrush winds its way under dainty bridges through honey-coloured limestone houses and quaint cottages that date back to Elizabethan times. Its prettiness draws visitors from all over the world.

Bourton has some great attractions and super cafés and shops that make it the perfect choice for a day trip or a weekend away.
