Recently completely refurbished by the new owners, Lime Tree is a charming, comfortable studio apartment with stunning views over the millstream and neighbouring woodland.

Offering the best of both worlds, it's very quiet and secluded, but only 5 minutes walk from Burford town centre, with its stylish shops, and an excellent choice of pubs and restaurants in one direction, and beautiful countryside waks just a few hundred yards in the other. Lime Tree has everything you'll need for a comfortable stay.

The small town of Burford is perfectly located for all the attractions of the Cotswolds and surrounding areas, such as Blenheim Palace at Woodstock, the Cotswold Wildlife Park and several National Trust properties including Hidcote Manor Gardens. Oxford and Stratford upon Avon are within easy reach. It is a paradise for walkers with many footpaths, and books of walks are supplied.
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. 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.
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 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.
