Tucked, quite literally, in the top corner of the famous Burford Hill, Number Five, Burford Hill Mews is a joyful holiday home which offers guests warm, welcoming accommodation all a stone's throw from the centre of this historic town, Burford. A beautiful, private spot, this modern hideaway enjoys a secluded and private garden which can be enjoyed from inside and outside - whatever the time of year. Two huge, historic trees also provide homes to an abundance of wildlife (song-birds and squirrels) so sitting inside or outside, you're going to see plenty of nature in action! Inside the property, which is across the ground floor, there is a spacious, open plan living area - light and with doors leading to the garden. There are two bedrooms and two bathrooms and all with a modern feel that is very relaxing.

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. Read more in our Burford Guide.
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 fine church is a real gem 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.
Places to eat include the world famous Huffkins Tea Rooms, The Bay Tree and Lamb pubs which serve good food, along with the The Angel another good restaurant. There is even a very good curry house!
"The house was well furnished, comfortable and clean. It had everything we needed and was equipped with cleaning products, soap and welcome basket was lovely touch. "Mrs Ilyas 2017-10-05
"The property was beautifully kept and had everything we could possibly need. It was in a fantastic location and was an ideal base for touring the Cotswolds and Oxford. When we arrived the owners had left us milk and tea and coffee – which was very thoughtful. The views from the property were also impressive, no matter the weather. "McCleod 2017-08-15
"Central position in The Cotswolds. Nice looking property and good description on the Manor Cottages website."BELOTTI 2017-08-02
