A Buyers Guide To Bungalows For Sale In The Cotswolds

Posted on: 4 January 2023

Spread over rolling hills in the central southwest of England, the Cotswolds is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful places to live in the United Kingdom.

There are so many charming period properties in this part of the world, and bungalows are one of the most sought-after types of homes with many buyers.

So, read on to learn about bungalows for sale in the Cotswolds and discover how the friendly team at Harrison, James & Hardie can help you find your dream home in this stunning part of the world.




Bungalows for sale Cotswolds – a buyer’s guide

Bungalows are highly sought after by buyers, thanks to their convenient and practical design, offering all amenities on one level.

Most bungalows are open-concept in design and use square footage and vertical space efficiently. Bungalows can also require less maintenance than storied homes and provide ease of mobility due to their lack of stairs leading to a second level.

In the Cotswolds, bungalows also typically benefit from sprawling countryside views complemented by open sight lines, providing gorgeous panoramas of the natural world around your home.

What’s more, many bungalows for sale in the Cotswolds are in charming villages like Bourton-on-the-Water and market towns like Moreton-in-Marsh – two of the most popular communities within the Cotswolds, thanks to an idyllic pace of life and friendly residents.

Cotswold bungalows for sale – highly sought-after



Harrison Hardie helps buyers find their dream homes in the Cotswolds, but bungalows don’t come along too often. They’re highly sought-after and don’t tend to stay on the market for very long, such is the market demand for these practical properties, particularly in the most charming villages in the Cotswolds. This beautiful bungalow in Bourton-on-the-Water (on the market in December 2022) is typical of the single-storey dwellings that occasionally come to market. Situated in a quaint cul-de-sac location, it benefits from clever use of space and open-plan living.

The detached property features a principal bedroom with an en-suite, a guest bedroom, and an open-plan kitchen and breakfast room. There’s off-road parking for two vehicles and a generously proportioned double garage, backing onto a manicured garden to the rear.


With little work required on the exterior, given its current curb appeal, there’s ample opportunity to modernise and beautify this stunning bungalow’s interior, offering you the perfect chance to transform it into your dream home in this charming Cotswolds village.

With several places to eat, drink, and shop, as well as numerous local attractions, such as the Model Village and Birdland Gardens, Bourton-on-the-Water is often described as the quintessential Cotswolds village, and it’s easy to see why. The village has around 4,000 residents and vibrant small businesses and community groups.

Close by is Moreton-in-Marsh, another Cotswold locale with period charm and countryside glow. Popular for its Tuesday market, it’s a historic market town with a close-knit community feel, making it a wonderful place to find your dream home.

As with properties in Bourton, bungalows for sale in Moreton-in-Marsh don’t come along very often, so it’s helpful to keep in touch with Harrison, James & Hardie if you’re looking for a single-storied property in this part of the Cotswolds.
