    “Low doorways were an issue for some party members.”

    Parking arrangements could be clearer on the listing, they were clear in the property handbook. More mugs would be useful.

    Thank you for your feedback with regards to your recent stay at Dolphin House. We are sorry that there wasn't enough mugs for you, this was an oversight from the housekeepers as there is spare in the cellar. This has now been rectified. We shall also look at the parking arrangements we have available on the listing to make it more clear for future guests. We hope you managed to enjoy the local sites in Burford and the surrounding areas. Kind regards Manor Cottages. Property Owner

The property

Nestled in the charming medieval town of Burford, in the Cotswolds AONB, is this delightful Grade II listed townhouse (dating from the late 17th century, with the shop front window being added around 1870, when the property became a bakers).

Inside, the owners have created a smart and welcoming retreat, whilst still retaining many of its original features, which make it such an exceptional cottage.

Internally the cottage benefits from having a gorgeous sitting room with sumptuous sofas and armchairs, a lovely space in which to unwind after a busy day sightseeing.

Pass through the delightful dining room into the superbly appointed kitchen, equipped with all that you could require to create culinary masterpieces.

For some quiet time, venture towards the sunroom at the rear of the cottage and lose yourself in a good book, or have your morning cup of tea whilst the sun rises; a lovely place to sit and relax whatever the season.

On the upper floors you will find the four beautifully presented bedrooms: the first floor having the master bedroom with king-size bed and en-suite shower room, as well as a second king-size bedroom, a full family bathroom as well as a separate family shower room.

Rise to the second floor where you will find two further bedrooms; a twin and a king size double.

At the rear of the cottage is a lovely enclosed, private courtyard garden, complete with garden table and chairs, making a wonderful spot to enjoy the company of friends and family.

Being centrally located in this iconic town, you are just a short walk from all the facilities that this lovely town has to offer; an array of traditional pubs, restaurants and cafés, as well as a well-stocked local supermarket for those last-minute essentials.

History lovers will delight in exploring this lovely setting, with The Tolsey Museum, just across the road from the cottage, being able to point you in the right direction.

You are also ideally located to explore several of the other most famous Cotswold destinations - most notably Stow on the Wold, Bourton on the Water and Chipping Norton, all being just a short drive away.

Dolphin House is the perfect property from which to explore all that the area has to offer.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £300.

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.

Please note: £500 Good Housekeeping Bond (damages deposit) is required.
Please note: Off-road parking at the rear of the property for ONE car (restricted space), please park within the white line to allow pedestrian and wheelchair access for the neighbours and also avoid blocking the garages behind the parking bay. Further roadside parking is available close by.
