    “We thoroughly enjoyed this beautiful old 13th century cottage with all its quirky features including the uneven flagstones in parts of the dining room floor.”

    Very smooth and shiny after years of wear which had sunken a little. We felt we were living in a bit of history. We did not find the floor a problem at all but I guess some elderly people might. ...

    Very smooth and shiny after years of wear which had sunken a little. We felt we were living in a bit of history. We did not find the floor a problem at all but I guess some elderly people might. The kitchen was well stocked even for someone who bakes and it was relaxing sitting in the courtyard. I did water the plants as we were having a very dry spell and some pots were dying. The bedrooms were lovely, spacious with comfortable beds and several fans were provided for the hot weather. The parking was not problematic- two roads around the corner had parking spaces and there is a free Car park three minutes walk away. We loaded and unloaded in the double yellow lines outside. Would definitely recommend and stay again.

    We are delighted to hear that you enjoyed your stay and that you found the cottage atmospheric and had all the amenities your required for your stay. We would love to have you visit again. Best wishes, Manor Cottages Property Owner

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.
