Tannery Cottage is an immensely cosy Cotswold cottage, set in a quiet location near to the centre of Burford. Internally, the owners have created a very civilised country bolthole that absolutely oozes classic English charm, with original flagstone floors, the wonky beams and oak flooring, this is a 19th century gem of a holiday cottage. Very romantic and full of 'olde england' warmth. The modern, open plan kitchen / diner with its view to the garden is most welcoming, while the living room with its woodburner is perfectly snug - and all with underfloor heating! The bedrooms upstairs are beautifully styled with top-quality furnishings and linen each with unique touches creating a truly authentic Cotswolds' experience. This cottage is perfect for a family, ideal of a couple or two couples and we think it is hard not to imagine yourself returning to this cute hideaway time and time again. Utterly Delightful!!

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!
