Upper Brize, Burford & surrounding area
This delightful holiday property set in a quiet location within the Oxfordshire Cotswolds, a short distance from Burford. The property is presented to a very high standard with up to six bedrooms* and four bathrooms available making it absolutely prefect for large group gatherings - be they friends or family. Internally the property retains many period features along with countless contemporary touches to give this a real high quality, minimalist feel. An element that particularly appealed to us was the large ground floor which has the feeling of being 'open plan' but actually has separate 'rooms' and thus creates a sense of being together without all the noise that this can sometimes bring!
Similarly appealing are the large gardens to the rear of the property, which the owners have thoughtfully added a hot tub, skittles and table tennis which are just as much fun for friends (adults) as they are families with children! A great choice.
Entrance through to the open plan ground floor.

"Amazing cottage, so well laid out, décor excellent, well stocked with everything we needed, very comfortable bedrooms, very clean on arrival, & Dot was brilliant explaining all the systems etc., she made it very easy for us to settle in , especially with 6 young Grandchildren! They loved it, but due to bad weather & high winds were unable to take advantage of the lovely outside facilities eg table tennis , grounds etc"Mrs Roche 2015-11-19
