  • "The cottage is at the end of the lane and looks out onto a beautiful field."

    The quiet was most enjoyable. I particularly loved the layout of the cottage - it has everything you need in a cozy space. We would have appreciated a bit of firewood. Eateries in the neighborhood are great - good to plan ahead as many bookup. Don't miss the extensive gin list at the Maytime Inn.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are so glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay and would love to welcome you back any time in the future. Property Owner

  • "Property rather sparsely furnished with small numbers of things like knives, forks and cooking utensils."

    Pictures on Sykes are from previous owners and have not been updated.

    Thank you for your feedback. The photographs are very close to the way the property is currently presented - just a few things like pictures and decorations that are different. Property Owner

  • "Absolutely beautiful cottage in idyllic location."

    The cottage is comfortably furnished, we had a very relaxing stay the only comment we would make, is a small thing but was annoying. The kitchen is somewhat scantily equipped; 5 mugs and 4 of each type of cutlery. this is not enough for a cottage that sleeps 4, unless you put on a half full dishwasher on after every meal. this would, we think be a cheap fix. we would consider retuning when visiting the Cotswolds. kind regards Dominic and Hadaya

  • "I have been in email contact about poor cleanliness but you were not interested."

    Thick dust in specific areas. Bedroom. 1 particularly on slope area. Someones socks left under table - thick floor dust where not cleaned properly Thick long black hair in property. Tea stained sink and washing up bowl just needed bleaching. Toe nail and pill in bedroom 2 on floor between 2 beds. Kitchen cupboard fronts had food debris and not cleaned. Fridge not clean. TV needs an upgrade to smart tv. Unsightly air brick behind tv. Kitchen poorly equipped - 4 knives, 4 forks for 4 people is not enough. No baking trays. Knives in knife block a have rust spots from dishwasher. Inadequate bedroom storage - no hanging space at all Local office were helpful but overall - Poor customer service as can not ring to discuss and received standard email saying matter is resolved and I did not follow process and report on arrival. No one took time to listen I was not seeking compensation but wanted to.alert to poor cleanliness. So assume my feed back wil be ignored and poor standards will continue. Of course you are welcome to publish but of course you wont! Oh and requested arrival time of 6pm unreasonable particularly when property had not been cleaned properly. Had assumed later arrival time was to allow more time for cleaning

    Dear Mrs Hurran, I am so very sorry to hear of the disappointment you experienced due to the poor level of cleanliness at the property. Of course, the issues you came across are completely unacceptable and the housekeeper has been forwarded your comments in order to ensure this does not happen to any future guests. With regard to the kitchen equipment, you're right - that is certainly not sufficient cutlery for four and the owner has been contacted in order to get some more over to the property. We're happy we were able to help you from our office here in Burford. The 6PM check-in time is indeed to accommodate extra cleaning time due to Covid-19. It is clear that the time was not utilised wisely and we apologise for the inconvenience this must have caused. We really appreciate you bringing all of these points to our attention as we are now able to rectify the issues for future guests. We hope you had a wonderful break and would love to welcome you back to the Cotswolds again in the future. Property Owner

  • "Little Owl Cottage was a gorgeous little place to escape to post lockdown."

    There was everything and more that we needed inside this beautiful cottage and it was extremely clean on arrival. Perfect location for exploring the Cotswolds and a 20 minute walk to plenty of cafes, pubs and shops in Burford. Would highly recommended!

    Thank you for highly recommending Little Owl Cottage, we are pleased to hear it had everything you needed. We would love to welcome you back to the Cotswolds again in the near future! Manor Cottages. Property Owner

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.
