    Well fitted out with a small balcony overlooking the River Windrush, idyllic really. Good location, a five minute walk to Burford High Street with a variety of shops and places to eat/drink. Owners were very hospitable, provided good tips of the local area and a nice gesture of a welcoming bottle of wine.

  • "On arrival the temperature in the apartment was only 14 degrees and took a long time for the heating to reach a comfortable temperature."

    The bathroom remained cold throughout our stay as the heated towel rail was not sufficient to heat the bathroom. Although aware of off site parking it wasn’t ideal in the rainy conditions. There was a blocked toilet which was resolved quickly by the owner. It was a unique location and extremely quiet and we therefore slept well in an extremely comfortable bed. We liked the fact that there were good eating places within a short walking distance.

    Many thanks for taking the time to leave your feedback on Lime Tree Cottage. We apologise the heating was not to a comfortable temperature and will liaise with the owner so this can be rectified for future guests. Property Owner

About the location


Swinbrook 3.3 miles; Little Barrington 3.4 miles; Minster Lovell 6.1 miles.

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.
