Property Information

Step off the famous Sheep Street in the heart of Burford, into Burford House and what you will find is an exceptional Cotswolds'  home, full of charm, character and oozing an understated style. A handsome building that literally puts a smile on your face from the moment you walk through the door, this is one that families will especially enjoy. Large windows let the light flood in throughout the house, where there are two large living rooms (both with open fires) and an attractive kitchen/diner, while upstairs via the grand stairs are four bedrooms each spacious and beautifully furnished. The owners are veritable book lovers, so guests will have plenty to relax with, if indeed you haven't chosen to pop to Huffkins for a famous lardy cake or to one of the traditional pubs, in fact about 20 yards from your front door is an excellent hotel bar call The Bay Tree! A magical Cotswolds house that is a wonderful place to enjoy a holiday or break. Even when we visited this house in the depths of winter we were totally bowled over by its gorgous feel. Heavenly!

Map & Local Information

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.

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!
