  • "We were very happy with No 6."

    It was very clean and comfortable with a lovely atmosphere. Everything functioning as it should, furnished in a style that befitted the age of the cottage. A nice bunch of roses and bottle of wine to greet. A nice touch was the call on the day to say the cottage was ready earlier than advertised. Would visit again.

    Thank you your kind comments. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay at No. 6 and look forward to welcoming you back in the future. Thank you Barry & Mandy Property Owner

  • "First of all, thank you so much for a lovely stay and for the wine, milk and Poinsettia, we had a lovely Christmas break in your charming cottage and felt very much at home."

    We were wondering how warm the cottage would be as it had storage heating but we weren’t at all cold although we only discovered the heater instructions as we were leaving as someone had shoved them in amongst the “walking “ info, fortunately we managed to suss it out. The only other negative was that the contract cleaners need to do a more in-depth clean/ carry out proper checks between changeovers; in particular, in the kitchen - some of the cutlery and utensils weren’t clean and there was a build up of hair and other debris both in the utensils drawer and the cutlery tray so I had to wash and clean everything before cooking anything. Similarly, although the bath, washbasin, taps, shower screen and toilet were perfectly clean there were ‘forgotten’ areas in bathroom where there was again a build up of debris and grime on the tiling around bath and wooden boxing in of pipes and tiles under towel rail; they hadn’t been wiped over in a while. Sykes rightly remind guests to leave the property as they found it but in our case it was left cleaner - we stayed from 22nd to 29th December. Hope you don’t mind this honest feedback, we just mean to be helpful . We would gladly stay again, we chose your property over others for its charm, character and of course you have to have a cosy wood burner at Christmas. Many thanks, Kate and David Gurmin

    Thank you for your feedback. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay in our cottage over the Christmas break. Your comments regarding the cleanliness have been noted and as a result we intend to carry out a thorough clean of the cottage especially in the areas you mentioned.. We apologies for any inconvenience this may have caused you during your stay and we thank you for bringing this to our attention. We hope to welcome you back to George Yard again in the future. Kind regards Barry & Mandy Property Owner

  • "Comments were left in the visitors book for the owner to look at."

    We were particularly interested in the old furniture and wall hangings and would have liked some information as to their origins. The cottage was really cosy and warm and the owner had kindly left us milk and wine plus fresh flowers in the property. A lovely touch.

    thank you kind comments. I am glad you enjoyed your stay in 6 George Yard. The furniture and wall hangings throughout the cottage are mainly antiques as I used to be in the antiques business and thought that the cottage needed some character. If you wanted any information on anything particular I would be happy to supply any information I can. Kind regards Barry Property Owner

  • "Cottage is cosy , homely and compact."

    . perfect for a couple. The antique bed is gorgeous and very comfortable ( and the mirror in the bedroom not only makes you look taller but slimmer too! ) Great location off High Street. Burford is a beautiful town and you’re spoiled for choice for eating, drinking and shopping. Train to Oxford and London Paddington from Kingham just 20 mins drive away. Owner left some lovely wine, flowers and wine which was nice touch and the Co-op just through the close and a couple of shops down was great for essentials. Can highly recommend.

    This was about the tenth time we have stayed there. Loved the additional touches this year, the flowers, fresh fruit and milk in the fridge. Barry went out of his way to make us feel welcome.

  • "The location was absolutely perfect and a stone throw from Main Street."

    I’m a cleanliness freak and this property was brilliantly clean and that was even by my standards. The standard of cleanliness throughout the whole cottage was extremely high. There was everything in the property that you could ever need for self catering. The bed was the most comfortable that I’ve ever slept on when away. The bedding was obviously of good quality and smelled lovely. This cottage is lovely and I’d recommend it to anyone looking for a home from home. We loved it there (especially as we could pop to Huffkins for breakfast)!. Parking was difficult at times due to time of year. Mostly we parked in main car park down the hill and walked up. On the day of vacating property we loaded the car up at the designated area. We then drove up the little lane to go home and met a car coming towards us (driven by elderly man who lives next door to number 6). He has a parking spot near to his home at the end of lane by barrier. There is no room for two cars and we ended up having to reverse right the way back down the lane to where we loaded up because the other car wouldn’t reverse just a tiny bit to let us through. It was a shame he treated us like that at the end of the holiday but maybe he just gets fed up of parking issues. On dull days we found the cottage was a little chilly . There are however electric heaters if needed but I didn’t like to use them in summer.

The property

6 George's Yard is the very essence of a cosy Cotswolds cottage.

Very charming and very cosy.

Hidden down a little walkway just off Burford High street, this beautifully furnished cottage is a real gem and simply ideal for enjoying this wonderful location.

The antique dealer owners certainly know how to furnish this period cottage, with the sumptious Chesterfield sofa and the period pieces of furniture mixed with some classic features give this the authentic feel and atmosphere.

Stroll, literally, from your front door to Burford High Street and enjoy a Huffkin's breakfast, (not to mention the pubs too...) or just peruse the shops!

This is such a sweet cottage, just perfect for wandering into the fabulous little shops or cafes on the high street.

About the location

Burford

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. Located mid way between Oxford and Cheltenham (25 mins each away) it is a little haven of history and beauty that many come to fall in love with when they visit.

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 church is stunning, a real gem architecturally 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.
