    “Well situated and appointed cottage.”

    Not particularly clean, especially the bathroom. Big problem with ants in the kitchen. Have been charged (without my knowledge) for damage to some bedding though it was an item that neither of us can ever recall having seen in the property. No response by Sykes Cottages staff to my queries about this charge.

    Thank you for your comments. It is a shame you did not contact us during your stay, in order to give us the opportunity to rectify for you. We would have been happy to do so. We did contact you regarding the damaged bedding via web message, prior to making the charge. It is unfortunate you did not see this. We hope you enjoyed the location of the property in Burford. Best wishes Manor Cottages Property Owner

The property

Located in the Cotswolds village of Burford, Oxfordshire is Ellie's Cottage, a charming, stone-fronted dwelling.

Resting paces away from a hub of amenities and attractions, whilst enveloped by an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Ellie's Cottage offers a contemporary base for a group of four, mixing both style and character throughout.

Benefit from a designated parking space before heading indoors, reaching the light and bright open-plan area.

Use this space as your social hub, to prepare meals and dine, and to unwind with the electric fire on in the backdrop.

If the weather allows, be sure to make the most of the nearby private garden, before sloping off to sleep in one of two well-appointed bedrooms, complete with beamed ceilings and original doors; select between a king-size and a double (zip/link).

The cottage is complete with a sleek shower room with contemporary fixtures, providing a stylish space to get ready over the coming days.

Once you're ready to tour Burford, stock up on the essentials at one of the nearby convenience stores, or dine out at The Prince of Burford, The Highway Inn Burford or one of the many eateries alongside River Windrush, before visiting the Tolsey Museum, The Great House, and the Burford Garden Company, a delightful garden centre.

Just outside of the Cotswolds you'll find the Cotswold Wildlife Park & Gardens, the Crocodiles of the World attraction, and Kilkenny Lane Country Park, all worth adding to your itinerary, whilst the National Trust property of Lodge Park and Sherborne Park Estate is a car journey away, perfect for touring on wet days.

Be sure to visit Bourton-on-the-Water whilst on your travels, where you can hike through Greystones Farm Nature Reserve, tour the Cotswold Motoring Museum & Toy Collection, and dine out with riverside views, or head to Oxford for a day of art, culture, and heritage, before returning home in time for supper.

Make memories with Ellie's Cottage as your abode.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.

About the location


Swinbrook 2.4 miles; Little Barrington 3.5 miles; Minster Lovell 5.6 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, it 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 midway between Oxford and Cheltenham, 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 change 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 tea shops. It is an ideal base for visiting The Cotswolds area as it is within easy driving distance of popular attractions such as Blenheim Palace, Sudeley Castle, Warwick Castle and several National Trust Houses and Gardens. Bourton on the Water, Bibury, Cirencester and Stow on the Wold are all within ten miles.
