    “We really enjoyed the cottage and it’s location.”

    Our only criticism was that we were not allowed to use the AGA as we cook on our own at home every day

    Thank you for your feedback. We're sorry that you weren't able to use the AGA but appreciate your understanding and hope that the electric oven and hob were sufficient. Property Owner

The property

Tucked down a little private path in Burford, Oxfordshire, this utter gem of a mid-terraced dwelling, Butler’s Cottage, is as good as it gets!

Butler's Cottage, a Grade II listed building with a long history dating back hundreds of years and is the absolute epitome of a classic Burford cottage - historic, hidden, quirky and spacious.

Inside is a thoughtfully and exquisitely furnished home, where you can settle down in the tastefully furnished sitting area of the living/dining room and watch your favourite Sky show on the TV; be sure to light the woodburning stove for some extra warmth.

The dining area is ideal for any social gathering, with a table seating all the family, so you can grab a seat and catch up with your group about your countryside ramblings.

After spending some time with the family, you can unwind in the quieter space of the snug with one of the books available.

The kitchen has been fitted with everything you need to whip up delectable meals, including a handy dishwasher!

The first-floor hosts three top-notch bedrooms, with one being a super-king-size, one a king-size and the other a twin room; the super-king-size and twin feature zip/link beds to coincide with your sleeping plans, whilst two of the bedrooms also enjoy Jack-and-Jill access to a bathroom - reminding you that you're never far from a little bit of Burford's eccentricity!

Additionally, you can find a fabulous shower room on this floor, whilst the downstairs hosts a cloakroom, ideal for avoiding those morning queues.

The private courtyard is where you can go to catch some sun whilst you sip a morning coffee and take in your quaint surroundings of the town.

The abode is conveniently located near the Burford High Street, which offers a variety of local pubs, restaurants, and stores to visit; the town also has an established golf club where putting enthusiasts may practise their skills.

Visit Witney, stopping along the route at the fascinating Crocodiles of the World attraction before exploring Cogges Manor Farm's living museum and meandering through the lovely Duckington Lake & Country Park.

Further afield, the spectacular city of Oxford awaits, with plenty of historic attractions available for you to visit, such as the Oxford University Museum of Natural History and the Oxford Castle & Prison, as well as the stunning sights of the city's many meadows and green spaces, including the renowned Port Meadow; there is still so much more to see of the city, so make sure to set aside some time to visit!

Further afield, consider taking a Cotswolds Mystery Tour, where you can learn about the area's hidden villages while being guided by knowledgeable tour guides.

An exceptional holiday property, Butler’s Cottage is the perfect retreat for families or couples who love the Cotswolds.

About the location


Swinbrook 3.3 miles; Little Barrington 3.4 miles; Minster Lovell 6.1 miles.

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.

Note: This property has a £200 Good House Keeping Bond.
Note: Please contact managed services to discuss how you would like the beds made up (if we do not receive any request, the beds will be made up as follows: (1 King, 1 SuperKing and 2 singles).
