    “The location was absolutely perfect and a stone throw from Main Street.”

    I’m a cleanliness freak and this property was brilliantly clean and that was even by my standards. The standard of cleanliness throughout the whole cottage was extremely high. There was everything in the property that you could ever need for self catering. The bed was the most comfortable that I’ve ever slept on when away. The bedding was obviously of good quality and smelled lovely. This cottage is lovely and I’d recommend it to anyone looking for a home from home. We loved it there ...

    I’m a cleanliness freak and this property was brilliantly clean and that was even by my standards. The standard of cleanliness throughout the whole cottage was extremely high. There was everything in the property that you could ever need for self catering. The bed was the most comfortable that I’ve ever slept on when away. The bedding was obviously of good quality and smelled lovely. This cottage is lovely and I’d recommend it to anyone looking for a home from home. We loved it there (especially as we could pop to Huffkins for breakfast)!. Parking was difficult at times due to time of year. Mostly we parked in main car park down the hill and walked up. On the day of vacating property we loaded the car up at the designated area. We then drove up the little lane to go home and met a car coming towards us (driven by elderly man who lives next door to number 6). He has a parking spot near to his home at the end of lane by barrier. There is no room for two cars and we ended up having to reverse right the way back down the lane to where we loaded up because the other car wouldn’t reverse just a tiny bit to let us through. It was a shame he treated us like that at the end of the holiday but maybe he just gets fed up of parking issues. On dull days we found the cottage was a little chilly . There are however electric heaters if needed but I didn’t like to use them in summer.

The property

6 George's Yard is the very essence of a cosy Cotswolds cottage.

Very charming and very cosy.

Hidden down a little walkway this beautifully furnished cottage is a real gem and simply ideal for enjoying this honeypot location.

The antique dealer owners certainly know how to furnish this period cottage, with the sumptious Chesterfield sofa and the period pieces of furniture mixed with some classic features give this the authentic feel and atmosphere.

Stroll, literally, from your front door to Burford High Street and enjoy a Huffkin's breakfast, (not to mention the pubs too...) or just peruse the shops!

This is such a sweet cottage, just perfect for wandering into the fabulous little shops or cafes on the high street.

About the location

Burford

Burford is possibly one of, if not THE most famous of the Cotswolds' locations. With its medieval bridge, old stone houses and attractive Tudor and Georgian frontages, Burford is justifiably one of the most picturesque towns in England. Often referred to as the 'Gateway to the Cotswolds', the town was originally a fortified Anglo-Saxon ford which later grew to be an important regional crossroads and wealthy wool town. Located mid way between Oxford and Cheltenham (25 mins each away) it is a little haven of history and beauty that many come to fall in love with when they visit.

The 16th century Tolsey building, once the meeting place for medieval merchants, now houses The Tolsey Museum, a delightful local museum illustrating the town's social and industrial past. The church is stunning, a real gem architecturally with many interesting memorials charting some of Burford's great families. There is also the signature, on the baptisimal font, of Antony Sedley, one of the Levellers besieged in the church in 1649 - three of the ringleaders were executed by Oliver Cromwell's men in the churchyard. History awaits!

With little changing over the centuries, Burford is now very popular with visitors, both for its beauty and history but also for its shopping and antiques, and for the wide variety of places to eat, with restaurants, pubs and teashops. It is an ideal base for visiting The Cotswolds area as it is within easy driving distance of popular attractions such as Blenheim Palace, Sudley Castle, Warwick Castle and several National Trust Houses and Gardens. Bourton on the Water, Bibury, Cirencester and Stow on the Wold are all with 25 minutes from the property.
