  • "We found this to be an extremely comfortable, warm and well equipped holiday home."

    It is spotlessly clean. The house is well sited to walk into Burford (once you get used to the hill on the way back) as well as for visiting the surrounding area. There are many beautiful walks nearby and interesting houses and gardens to visit.

    Thank you for your kind response. We are glad that you enjoyed you stay at 5 Burford Hill Mews. Property Owner

  • "Beautiful property in a really lovely setting and so convenient to walk into Burford."

    Good to have a welcome pack on arrival too, the only thing that was missing was toilet roll (just as well there was kitchen roll!) we weren't sure if this had been forgotten or it's not supplied? The co-op down the hill solved the problem. A lovely stay, we hope to be back.

    Thank you for your kind comments. I am so sorry about the lack of toilet rolls, This had obviously been forgotten by the cleaners and unusually I was not around to check after they had finished. I will take it up with them Property Owner

  • "Wonderful property."

    One thing I found out, when hit by a freezing shower, was that there wasn’t enough hot water for both a bath and a shower at the end of the day. It did freshen me up though

    Thank you for your kind comment we would just add that the hot water does heat up twice a day. We are sorry that you had a nasty shock of a cold shower! Property Owner

    The cottage itself was perfectly situated, the kitchen well equipped, the garden was beautiful, the bathrooms and showers were top quality.

  • "The condition of the apartment was exceedingly good as was the location."

    Short walk to town, large garden and playing field beyond. ideal for a family of 4 or a couple. Plenty tp see and do in the area. One minor point: it would be better if the freezer was switched on for arrival but otherwise absolutely no complaints. All the provisions were there for the electrical equipment and a lovely welcome pack. Obviously a lot of thought had gone into the needs of holiday makers.

  • "The apartment was very clean and comfortable and very well appointed."

    The owners live in the upper apartment and were very pleasant. The apartment is ideal for some with mobility problems, all being on ground floor level with decent size door openings. I can imagine later in the year it would be lovely sitting with the patio doors open. The owner mentioned plans to extend the bedroom area to increase the size of the front bedroom so sounds like it will be even nicer than it currently is. I would definitely recommend this apartment.

    Our cottage was beautifully decorated and very comfortable. It had everything we needed. Very comfortable bed, soft towels. Parking was a plus. It was in a great location, just at the top of the Hill in Burford. The owners, Judith and Andrew were on hand, but we never needed to contact them. If I stay in the area again, I will definitely book this cottage again.

A beautiful, private spot, this modern hideaway enjoys a secluded and private garden which can be enjoyed from inside and outside - whatever the time of year.

Two huge, historic trees also provide homes to an abundance of wildlife (song-birds and squirrels) so sitting inside or outside , you're going to see plenty of nature in action!

Inside the property, which is across the ground floor, there is a spacious, open plan living area - light and with doors leading to the garden.

There are two bedrooms and two bathrooms and all with a modern feel that is very relaxing.

With a good, old fashioned pub about 100 yards away and the rest of Burford, a minute down the hill plus a big playing field behind the garden wall, you really have got everything literally "on your doorstep"!

Park your car and leave it - you can walk everywhere!!!

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.
