    “Overall, our stay was very nice but I clicked, "failed to meet expectations" as there were some items I think need improvement on and the owner would find helpful.”

    I would rent it again but would be more prepared. ...

    I would rent it again but would be more prepared. 1. I requested that the two separate beds be pulled together to make one which was an option. This wasn't done and honestly, annoying. I don't want to dress a bed while on vacation especially after arriving all the way from the States. 2. Limited towels. It would be nice to know where extra things are. 3. The highchair was requested but it would be nice that since it was requested to be pulled out of the wet laundry room, cleaned and set up. Again, searching for items. 4. I requested the crib which turned out to be a pack n' play. That is fine, but again, not put out in any way or noted where it could have been found. Not fun with a tired baby. 5. The radiant heater which is downstairs and connects to the room with two beds is extremely loud and continues to be loud until midnight. Not great, especially with jet lag, tired baby and in general sleeping needs. 6. The welcome gift was not there. Not a big deal but then when we went across the street to the shop location that was listed of who was to supply it, the owner of the shop was pretty rude and stated she didn't have time to make one before we arrived. We didn't arrive until 7 pm on check-in the night. We didn't pay for a welcome gift but the cottage a few doors down did when we rented that one and it was pretty amazing. Thought the owner would want to know this. 7. Lack of toilet paper. There was one roll per bathroom. This is kinda silly, a few more should be supplied in general. Nobody wants to realize there is only one roll provided when you are about to finish a roll. Overall, the cottage was clean, cozy, and sweet. Lots of cooking supplies available in the kitchen, pretty back patio, nice sized rooms, and a great location. Note parking is best in the morning and evening but we never had an issue. I really love staying right in town to avoid using the car when wanting to pop out to the shops. The welcome book is very thoughtful and well thought out. While I listed many small items to change, I would stay here again and probably will in the near future.

    Many thanks for your feedback, Firstly, our sincere apologies that your bed make up request was not met, this is clearly an error on our behalf. In all our properties there are 2 towels allocated per guests. If any more are required, all we ask is that our guests get in touch so we can accommodate this request.. Likewise all our properties are stocked with starter supplies, however, as these are self-catering there will be limited stock. It is very upsetting to hear that the staff at Mrs Bumbles was rude as you inquired about the missing welcome pack. We will definitely be putting in processes to ensure that this will not happen again. Regarding the noisy radiator, which has never been an issue before, we always encourage our guests to get in touch if they experience any issues during their stay which will enables us to rectify these asap ensuring you have an pleasurable stay. All our contact details are in the Welcome Folder including outside hours / emergency number. We do hope that we will be able to welcome you back soon and will do our utmost to make it as enjoyable as possible. Owner relations

The property

Murton Cottage is a historic property situated at the bottom of Burford's High Street - truly one of the most iconic Cotswold settings.

The cottage is Grade II listed and has a long history which dates back many hundreds of years.

Internally, the property has been renovated and thoughtfully decorated with your ultimate comfort in mind, while still retaining its original period features that make it a truly exceptional country cottage.

Offering a gorgeous sitting / dining room with two sofas, 43'' Smart Ultra HD TV and a dining table for 6 guests, a place you can curl up after a long day and enjoy the effects of the woodburning stove.

With a cosy bookcase full of books to choose from.

The well equipped kitchen has a range of wall and base units, and everything you could need to create mouth watering dishes.

Venture upstairs for the bedrooms, which consist of one Hypnos super kingsize (or twin - please specify at time of booking your preference) complete with smart 43'' Ultra HD TV and one twin room, as well as a family bathroom, with roll top bath and separate walk-in shower on the first floor.

On the second floor you will find the master suite, with Hypnos king size bed and en-suite shower room.

Outside has a private courtyard area, with a table and chairs (and a fabulous feature - the original well, which is now illuminated and safely blocked) , so you can sit out and enjoy the stunning setting, while your pets run around and play.

Off the courtyard there is a stone built outbuilding, where you will find additional cold storage, in the form of an upright fridge / freezer.

Roadside parking is available in close proximity to the cottage.

This property is ideally located in the centre of this quintessential Cotswold town, with a range of local pubs, restaurants and shops to indulge in literally on your door step.

Further afield, why not visit the equally famous destinations of Stow on the Wold, Bourton on the Water and Chipping Norton - all less than 10 miles away.

If you want something a little more peaceful, then why not visit the stunning Blenheim Palace and stroll around in Winston Churchill's footsteps (about 25 minutes away).

Murton Cottage is an idyllic setting in the centre of this bustling Cotswolds destination.

About the location

Burford

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: there is a fully refundable Good House Keeping Bond of £300.00
One dog is welcome and charged @ £25.00.
