Church Cottage, Burford is one of those very special holiday cottages which come along only once in a while! Located in the heart of the beautiful Cotswold town of Burford, next to the famous 14th Century Church, this stone built traditional cottage has everything to make your holiday truly enjoyable. The property was completely refurbished and redecorated in 2009 and has been lovingly maintained to a very high standard since then. Internally, this is a holiday home with character, charm and style: light, airy and comfortable, with hints of the 'Art-Deco' period when the house was built. Externally, Church Cottage has an enviable, quiet, detached location at the end of a no-through lane. It has its own off-road parking and the very pretty walled garden, part lawn and part sun terrace, is completely private. The cottage is only a few minutes walk from Burford town centre with its restaurants and shops. In our opinion this is a superb, high standard holiday cottage in a prime position.

Burford is one of the most famous of the Cotswolds' wool-towns, built in the Middle Ages when wool from this area was famous all over Europe, and now often referred to as the 'Gateway to the Cotswolds'. With its tree-lined High Street dropping down to the medieval bridge, considered one of the finest streetscape in England, its old stone houses with attractive Tudor and Georgian frontages, Burford is an architectural gem.
Burford is possibly one of 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.
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.
Little changed over the centuries, Burford is 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 (The Mermaid, The Highway or Royal Oak) and teashops. Burford 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.
