    Very quiet and peaceful. Good base to explore other parts of the Cotswolds.

    Thank you for your review. We're glad you had a lovely, peaceful stay at The Cider Press and hope to welcome you again. Property Owner

  • "Really nice place to stay."

    Clean and very well equipped. Communication from the owners excellent. We had a phone call from Barry telling us the apartment was ready for early entry if we required it. Many nice touches including a bottle of wine! Nice view of the river running below. The location was great, just a short walk to several pubs and the high street itself in Burford. Highly recommend

    Many thanks for your feedback. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us and look forward to welcoming you back again. Kind regards Barry Property Owner

  • "We enjoyed our stay at this property mostly, it is well situated for the town within easy walking distance and a good base to visit the rest of the cotswolds."

    It is well furnished inside and quite modern.However the amount of black mold in the shower cubicle grouting was a low point when we first saw the bathroom especially as we were staying for a week!We also found out early on that the apartment above has a creaky floor which is directly above the bed and woke us most nights when the person above required the bathroom.The seating area at the front was not very inviting and could be made more usable it would benefit from a tidy up and would be better if the owner did not park his large estate car in the space.Overall we had a good time but feel these issues need addressing!

    Extremely clean, comfy bed and super shower. Sofa is tiny but comfortable and decor is modern with a homely feel. Enjoyed waking up each morning and hearing the ducks etc out on the river. Parking was easy even though it was roadside. 5 mins walk into town where you will find plenty of pubs and cafes. Good base for exploring the Cotswolds.

    Very clean and a nice touch with fresh flowers and wine on arrival. Great location in the centre of Burford. Will visit this cottage again - loved it. Owners lovely and helpful too. Sykes had advised of a 18:00 check in, which we factored into our day, however the owner of the cottage phoned to say it would be ready by 13:00 - so others may find it beneficial to be flexible with their plans.

    The view were superb right beside the river windrush, with swans and ducks floating passed as squirrels play in the branches of trees outside the window. The Apartment is perfect, clean fresh with immaculate furniture, kitchen and bathroom fittings. The hosts are friendly going out of their way to make the stay perfect.

  • "We had a lovely time at the Cider Press."

    The hosts were lovely and happy to show us around. Unfortunately, the pots in the cupboard not not been cleaned very well and had crusty food suck on them - more the fault of the people before I would think, but was still a bit unpleasant having to wash them before use. A washing up bowl would have also been useful. Everything else was lovely and the location was perfect for walking into the village. It was a shame there was only parking available on the road, but we were assured that this would be fine and it was.

    Thank you very much for you comments, we are very sorry you found dirty pots and have advised the housekeepers to put checks in place. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and the surrounding villages. Property Owner

    Spotlessly clean, it felt newly refurbished and high quality e.g very comfy bed, amazing shower, nice art. We didn't have neighbours above us so it was quiet. There were lots of things to do nearby with our toddler, the crocodile park is great for a rainy day, the wildlife park is amazing. Burford offers all you need for local eateries, shops and Cotswold charm. We'd highly recommend this place.

About the location


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.
