Bourton-on-Dunsmore was mentioned in the Domesday Book. Bourton Hall in the village is a large stone mansion house which dates from 1791, and probably stands on the site of an earlier house.
Bourton is located upon a ridge overlooking the Draycote Water reservoir. Draycote is located at the bottom of the ridge towards the reservoir. Just to the west of Bourton is the village of Frankton. The development charity, Practical Action, is headquartered in Bourton.
