    “This wasn’t a booking that we made through Sykes.”

    It was a Manor Cottages booking. We had trouble from the day we got there. Tv didn’t get signal and we was told they would come fix it, but never saw them again. We found the place to be full of cobwebs and dust as it seemed it hadn’t been cleaned properly. We then found out that we were the last booking to stay there as the owner was selling up. We had surveyors come in and measure up the place whilst we were in there. This was out of order and I was not happy at all. I’ve complained to ...

I expected better as I’ve paid for a luxury cottage. I am very pleased tho to hear that Sykes have taken them over. No compensation was given and not even felt like anyone really cared if I a honest. Very disappointed with our holiday and Manor Cottages. m

The property

Located in the heart of the quiet village of Swinbrook, Lavender's Cottage is the achetypal rural bolt hole, oozing a classic Cotswolds' charm, surrounded by beautiful countryside - every inch the perfect choice for a getaway.

A hotel finish in a traditional cottage!

The village is heavenly, typically Cotswolds with pretty cottages of warm-toned stone, an award winning pub (The Swan), and a history that stretches hundreds of years back.

The place has a sense of timelessness and yet in a location that is easy to get to.

Set in the grounds of a stunning old monastic building, the cottage is furnished with a real eye for detail and style - super king size bed, power shower and top of the range kitchen to name a few.

If, instead you fancy 'doing nothing' then you can saunter to the pub in about 2 mins walk, where excellent food is served throughout the day, and thereafter you can walk for miles, along the lanes, along the River Windrush or wherever (there are miles of paths nearby) to enjoy a corner of the Cotswolds and England where time has stood literally still.

An outstanding choice.

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.
