    “Just returned from a really nice stay at The Old Dairy.”

    The property is a real treat: a lovely combination of period fittings and modern comforts. Tom and Nicola are kind and generous hosts and we would love to return in the near future. Shelton itself is a very pleasant and pretty village, and although slightly on the edge of the Cotswolds we found it ideal for Oxford/Blenheim P in one direction, and Buford and all the other lovely Cotswolds towns/villages in the other.

The property

Located in the quaint village of Shilton, The Old Dairy is a quintessential Cotswolds property, set back from the lane that runs through the heart of the village, very smart and very stylish.

Step inside to find a joyful show of colour and homeliness, large light rooms and a well equipped retreat ideal for a relaxing break.

Dating back to the 1680's, the building was originally the creamery and the place where butter was churned.

Today it retains a classical charm with high ceilings and large windows that make the space really welcoming.

The owners, who have completely renovated the building, have created a beautiful retreat.

Outside is a typical English cottage garden, with a delightful village beyond this.

Stroll to the pub (the owners can lend you wellies and coats if necessary!), jump in the car and be in Burford in about 3 mins or simply do nothing - this choice is your in this cracking holiday home.

About the location

BURFORD

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.
