Swinbrook, Burford & surrounding area
Hillside Cottage, Swinbrook is a stunning 5 star cottage, presented to the highest standard and without question one of the finest cottages in the Burford region. The owners have overseen a superb renovation of one of the oldest cottages in this historic village to provide sumptuous (a word we haven't used on a cottage before!) self catering accommodation in a location that overlooks the village church - a truly quintessential spot. The kitchen is the real heart of the home: beautiful with high quality materials, and Aga and views across the enclosed garden. The four bedrooms and three bathrooms are similarly stylish, spacious and gorgeous. We are bowled over by this cottage (one of the team wants to move in!) and we are quite certain you will be too.

Swinbrook is very much the quintessential Cotswold village: very pretty, very traditional and classic in terms of a Cotswolds location. It has a long history, but is perhaps best known for its links with the Mitford sisters in the mid 20th Century. Above all it has remained almost completely untouched over the years.
The village sits on the River Windrush and is about a 30 minute walk from the historic Cotswold town of Burford regarded by Forbes magazine as the 5th Best Place to Live in the world!!! There are a plethoral of attractive buildings throughout the village and if you do decide to walk along the lanes you will understand why so many people fall in love with it.
Swinbrook is perhaps best known for its association with the Mitford sisters who lived here in the 1930's and beyond. Today the village has an excellent pub called The Swan which sits on the Windrush and serves high quality food. As if to complete the classic Cotswolds village scene there is a cricket pitch too!
There are countless attractions within easy reach, including a host of National Trust Houses and Gardens (Kelmscote Manor and Hidcote Manor Gardens for example). Oxford is no more than 20 mins in the car, while Cheltenham, Bath and Stratford upon Avon are easily accessible. A very, very good location and choice for your holiday!
