  • "Had a problem with shower."

    Efficiently solved by team at Sykes! A lovely cottage in a good location but a few simple improvements needed in the kitchen ...... A better range of saucepan sizes , casseroles and cooking knives required. Dishwasher not useful - too small to fit dinner plates !!!! Dishwasher gunged up /dirty on arrival and much of kitchenware needed washing before use! Overall a lovely stay !

    We are pleased the shower was efficently solved and apologise that you had to encounter this. We have passed the improvements onto the owner and house keeping has been addressed. We are pleased you had a lovely stay overall. Manor Cottages Property Owner

  • "Great space in Burford."

    Lovely cottage with a garden. There were great facilities and we were provided with milk and tea. We had to re-wash all the dishes in the cupboard that were not clean. I would rethink the cleaning service the cottage uses.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are happy to hear that overall you enjoyed your stay at Muffety Cottage. We will look into the cleanliness issues raised. Manor Cottages Property Owner

  • "Burford is a lovely place and would suggest a visit."

    This cottage had issues, particularly with cleanliness. Sykes quickly stepped in but we left early. The owner needs to be more involved to keep an eye on the cleaning standards. Compared to other cottages we have rented in the Cotswolds the facilities here are basic. The sofas in the sitting room are particularly uncomfortable. With some involvement of the owner and improved cleanliness this could be a good place to stay. One word of caution, the parking space for visitors is small so is not suitable for a large car. We drive a Honda CRV and pulling out a large car in a tiny lane is not the easiest. After making our complaint Sykes acted professionally and the owner made a small refund and apologised for the poor standard of cleanliness

    Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry the property was not up to the high standards we aim to provide. We shall look into all the issues raised to ensure future guests have a pleasurable experience. Property Owner

  • "Lovely cottage , clean and comfortable with lovely little secluded garden."

    Please be aware that the ceiling above bathtub with overhead shower is very low. My husband is over 6ft tall and didn't fit in.

  • "Almost perfect."

    Lovely picturesque cottage in quiet rural location yet less than10mins walk from Burford Hight St. Private walled garden is an added bonus. A couple of deep comfy armchairs or sofa to flop into at the end of the day would make this the perfect cottage. The existing furniture is not too comfortable for an evening in with a good book and a glass of wine.

  • "Great holiday in a very comfortable cottage."

    Ideally placed in a quiet cul-de-sac but within 10 minutes walk of the town center. Burford itself is a really nice small town, visibly attractive & a great mix of ships.

  • "No clear recycling or trash disposal dates."

    Beds comfortable but seating (couch back too low) for any extended sitting (especially reading). Would have been nice to have a CD player. Very nice overall and enjoyed our visit.

  • "Lovely cottage in a great location."

    It was a 'home from home' and had everything we needed. The garden was a peaceful retreat in the evenings. We enjoyed walks around Burford and the surrounding countryside and the information provided in the welcome pack was very useful. Burford is a very good base for exploring The Cotswolds.

  • "Lovely property."

    Cosy, comfortable and well-maintained. Booking was easy and info provided by the host was excellent. The back door key was missing from the lockbox - therefore we didn’t have access to the garden and bins. We informed the host by email but did not have a response (it was over the Christmas period.) Overall this was not too much of an inconvenience and we would not hesitate to return.

    We apologise that the back door key was not at the property. Unfortunately no communication was received regarding this issue. This has now been addressed and we look forward to the possibility of welcoming you back in the future. 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.
