The property

Nestled in the charming medieval town of Burford, in the Cotswolds AONB, is this delightful Grade II listed townhouse (dating from the late 17th century, with the shop front window being added around 1870, when the property became a bakers).

Inside, the owners have created a smart and welcoming retreat, whilst still retaining many of its original features, which make it such an exceptional cottage.

Internally the cottage benefits from having a gorgeous sitting room with sumptuous sofas and armchairs, a lovely space in which to unwind after a busy day sightseeing.

Pass through the delightful dining room into the superbly appointed kitchen, equipped with all that you could require to create culinary masterpieces.

For some quiet time, venture towards the sunroom at the rear of the cottage and lose yourself in a good book, or have your morning cup of tea whilst the sun rises; a lovely place to sit and relax whatever the season.

On the upper floors you will find the four beautifully presented bedrooms: the first floor having the master bedroom with king-size bed and en-suite shower room, as well as a second king-size bedroom, a full family bathroom as well as a separate family shower room.

Rise to the second floor where you will find two further bedrooms; a twin and a king size double.e second floor.

At the rear of the cottage is a lovely enclosed, private courtyard garden, complete with garden table and chairs, making a wonderful spot to enjoy the company of friends and family.

Being centrally located in this iconic town, you are just a short walk from all the facilities that this lovely town has to offer; an array of traditional pubs, restaurants and cafés, as well as a well-stocked local supermarket for those last-minute essentials.

History lovers will delight in exploring this lovely setting, with The Tolsey Museum, just across the road from the cottage, being able to point you in the right direction.

You are also ideally located to explore several of the other most famous Cotswold destinations - most notably Stow on the Wold, Bourton on the Water and Chipping Norton, all being just a short drive away.

Dolphin House is the perfect property from which to explore all that the area has to offer.

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.

Please Note: a £500.00 Good House-Keeping Bond (damages deposit) is required.
Please Note: Strictly 1 parking space only at the rear of the property for 1 small / medium sized car only. Other vehicles can be parked on street close to the property (not allocated).
