Vendors Note - We have really enjoyed living in Honeysuckle Cottage within the historic centre of the village and amongst an active community. Being members of a number of community groups and also being active allotment holders we have gained many friends within the village. There is a Village Website and The Bourtons Community Facebook page. The village of Great Bourton overlooks the Cherwell Valley and the Oxford Canal. The village is surrounded by a network of footpaths and Banbury, the nearest town, is a pleasant 60-minute walk along the canal from the cottage (or a 10 to 15-minute drive). Great Bourton also sits on the edge of the Cotswold Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). Being in the centre of the country there are good road and rail links.
