Burford, Burford & surrounding area
With a name like Muffety Cottage, you'd expect this to be just as it sounds - and it is very cute! Tucked away from the hustle and bustle of Burford High Street, Muffety is an attractive and comfortable holiday home in one of the Cotswolds' best known and popular locations. Sitting in the grounds of the owners' home (they're very private so you won't be uninterrupted) the cottage is in great condition hidden away but very convenient for all that the location offers. Inside it is spotlessly clean and very welcoming, and very well equipped for a short or long stay - for couples or for a family. Upstairs there are two good sized bedrooms each with great views to Burford, while downstairs is a kitchen/diner and living room each beautifully presented.
For visiting Burford and for touring the Cotswolds there are few better locations than this - after all there are some superb pubs around the corner and a few top-notch cafes too.

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. 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!
