The property

Cleeveley Cottage, located near Burford, is a charming Grade II Listed Cotswold Cottage set in a very picturesque village.

The cottage, which dates back to the 16th Century, has undergone considerable renovation creating a stunning holiday home.

Internally there many period features incl a Tudor stone fireplace with woodburner, mullion windows and flagstone floors.

The cottage enjoys a quiet location down a no-through lane with an enclosed cottage garden to its rear.

The hamlet of Holwell is a few miles from Burford.

There are two classic Cotswolds pubs within a 5 min drive - "The Five Alls" in Filkins (an award winner where you may bump into Kate Moss the owner!) is a particular favourite with superb food and outstanding beers. We fell in love with the location and especially this cottage and are quite sure you will too.

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.

Note: This property requires a refundable Good House Keeping Bond of £100 paid before your arrival.
