The property

Easter Cottage is a 17th-century Cotswolds stone cottage located in the pretty village of Shilton, just three miles away from Burford.

The cottage has been completely renovated by its current owners, to provide immaculate accommodation for families and friends.

This fabulous property mixes traditional Cotswold charm with ultra-modern facilities to provide the best of both worlds.

On the ground floor is the wonderful kitchen/diner, complete with all the facilities you will need to prepare sumptuous meals for your party.

Across the hallway you have the superbly appointed lounge, complete with woodburning stove; an ideal place to sit and relax after a hard day's exploring.

Also on the ground floor, but separate from the main house, is one of the four double bedrooms, complete with en-suite facilities (up a separate flight of stairs) complete with a roll-top bath.

Upstairs in the main house you will find three further double bedrooms, the master having state of the art en-suite facilities with both bath and separate walk in shower.

You will also find a separate family bathroom with walk-in shower.

The cottage has a front garden and rear patio area, with garden furniture, where you can sit out and enjoy a relaxing evening with a refreshing beverage.

Off-road parking is available for one car with additional on street parking immediately in front of the cottage.

Situated nearby the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this property benefits from many nearby country pathways for keen walkers and cyclists.

The nearby town of Burford offers a wide selection of pubs, restaurants and shops to explore.

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.
