'Gateway to the Cotswolds', Burford is a picturesque medieval town straddling the River Windrush - ideal for a relaxing break year round.
Stroll along the High Street lined with impressive 17th and 18th Century architecture, taking time to call in at hidden alleyways and secluded courtyards. Discover alluring shops and galleries showcasing antiques, art, gifts, stylish clothing and other luxury goods. Pick up tempting produce at the local deli ready for lazy suppers in your Burford cottage. Or treat yourself to a meal at one of the many ancient hostelries or restaurants - after all, you are on holiday!
Be sure to visit St. John the Baptist Church, rated one of the country's finest with almost cathedral-like proportions and featuring a treasure trove of beautiful artefacts. Do also call in at the Tolsey Museum, a pay-point for collecting tolls during Tudor times and today displaying an assortment of rare exhibits from the town's intriguing past.
Stretch those legs and enjoy a walk into the glorious countryside from your Burford cottage. This is also a wonderful region to explore by bike and you can choose from a number of circular routes.
For a fantastic family day out, Cotswold Wildlife Park is just down the road, home to all sorts of mammals, birds and reptiles. Or how about a trip to the Lodge Park & Sherborne Estate, with its shimmering water meadows, sculpture trail and classic 17th Century grandstand built to view the many species of deer?
