Church Cottage, Burford is one of those very special holiday cottages which come along only once in a while!
Located in the heart of the beautiful Cotswold town of Burford, next to the famous 14th Century Church, this stone built traditional cottage has everything to make your holiday truly enjoyable.
The property was completely refurbished and redecorated in 2009 and has been lovingly maintained to a very high standard since then.
Internally, this is a holiday home with character, charm and style: light, airy and comfortable, with hints of the 'Art-Deco' period when the house was built.
Externally, Church Cottage has an enviable, quiet, detached location at the end of a no-through lane.
It has its own off-road parking and the very pretty walled garden, part lawn and part sun terrace, is completely private.
The cottage is only a few minutes walk from Burford town centre with its restaurants and shops.
In our opinion this is a superb, high standard holiday cottage in a prime position.

About the location
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.
