  • “Great stay in a well equipped cottage in a tranquil location A few improvements to feed back to the owners Would be : * The 18.”

    00 check in with no option to request any earlier, was very difficult with babies and a young family. Very restrictive and off putting

    00 check in with no option to request any earlier, was very difficult with babies and a young family. Very restrictive and off putting As check out was also early 10.00, this should give plenty of time to turn the cottage around for a 15.00 check in * Although all rooms were thermostatically controlled, the heating could not be turned off completely of lowered below 16 Deg C (the min 16 Deg C was to hot) * A vacuum cleaner (or hand held) would be nice

    - Mr Henderson, October 2021

    We do respond to guests who ask for an earlier check-in. Usually, if requested via phone or email we will do our very best to accommodate. Our housekeepers carry out a high standard clean at every changeover and often have more than one property to turn around in a day which is another reason other than Covid for the 18:00 check-in. There should have been a hoover available for use during your stay so we apologise for the fact that the housekeeper must have mistakenly locked it away. We're pleased you had a lovely stay regardless of these issues and would love to welcome you back in the future. Property Owner

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: There is no BBQ at the property
Note: This property has a Good House Keeping Bond of £500.
Note: The cottage is situated in a quiet residential area, and guests are kindly requested to keep noise to a reasonable level at all times, and particularly when enjoying the garden and terrace. Due to proximity of neighbours, no music is to be played in the outside areas.
