  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with you and the cottage was so well equipped."

    Only improvements on the note of cleanliness would be that the kitchen/ sink area could do with a thorough clean. There appears to be a black residue of dusting over the fire blanket, on top of the pictures and falling onto kitchen towel and utensils. Cobwebs under the shelving housing the kitchen jugs etc. We didn’t expect the traffic noise from the busy road but again this was a minor irritant. Burford is a stunning location and your gardens and grounds so beautiful so would definitely recommend to our friends and family.

    It was a pleasure to meet you and thank you for your feedback. We have noted your comments. The source of the black dust has been located and attended to. It seems the warm weather has encouraged the spiders. We’ll keep an eye on them. Property Owner

    The bed and settee are particularly comfortable. Loved the log burner. Very helpful owner, we forgot our Cotswolds guide book and Arthur provided us with an assortment. The barn is in a great location for all the Cotswolds sights.

    Thank you for your feedback with regards to your stay at The Barn at Westhall Cottage. It's lovely to hear that you enjoyed your stay at the property, it's a lovely place hidden away, but yet you have lots of lovely walks and places to visit just down the road. We hope to welcome you all again very soon. Kind regards Manor Cottages. Property Owner

  • "I had the most relaxing stay."

    The barn offered the total holiday feel. The layout was very well designed, even down to the roof windows for privacy. The wood burner was so efficient with march still being a little on the chill side this soon warmed the room. The host was very welcoming , showing and explaining about the area and things of interest. I would of missed out on the wildlife park had it not been for his input..I thankyou. A lovely couples retreat which I will recommend highly and will most definitely visit again. Thankyou

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.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping Bond of £100.
