  • “The hot tub wasn’t working when we arrived.”

    Using Google we found the manual and sorted it. Also could do with blinds in the bedrooms.

The property

This delightful holiday property set in a quiet location within the Oxfordshire Cotswolds, a short distance from Burford.

The property is presented to a very high standard with five bedrooms and four bathrooms available making it absolutely prefect for large group gatherings - be they friends or family.

Internally the property retains many period features along with countless contemporary touches to give this a real high quality, minimalist feel.

An element that particularly appealed to us was the large ground floor which has the feeling of being 'open plan' but actually has separate 'rooms' and thus creates a sense of being together without all the noise that this can sometimes bring!

Similarly appealing are the large gardens to the rear of the property, which the owners have thoughtfully added a hot tub, skittles and table tennis which are just as much fun for friends (adults) as they are families with children!

A great choice. Maximum of 12 people. NOTE: This property has a £600 good housekeeping bond This amount will be taken via the housekeeper. Note: Daily cleaning service available charged separately. Pets allowed The hot tub is included in the rental price. Please note.

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.
