Burford, Burford & surrounding area
The Coach House, Burford is a very special place indeed. Having recently been lovingly restored by the owners, today this chic and sweet country cottage is the perfect place for a family or group of friends to enjoy in one of the Cotswolds' most well known villages. This inviting residence was historically the old coach house to the nearby pub and the owners have taken time to retain the period charm of the building whilst ensuring that they've provided a truly luxurious "home from home" for guests.
Downstairs the kitchen/diner is flooded with light from the roof lantern and the large windows offer a view over the sunny walled garden. The handmade wooden kitchen is both a chef's delight and a sociable family-friendly environment. The characterful living room with exposed stone, fireplace and beams is a haven in which to relax. Upstairs three good size bedrooms and three quality en suite bathrooms set this apart from many other similar size cottages. Viewed from all of the cottage but hidden from the world beyond, there is a sunny, south facing walled garden and flagstone patio.
And then? Well Burford's delights are right on your doorstep - so what more do you need?! Fun, relaxation, a step back in time and luxury are all found in equal amounts here at The Coach House - you will love it, we're certain.

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!
