A wonderful country getaway. Jolly personable proprietor and lots of Olde English charm!

Beautifully positioned on the High Street in the picturesque, mediaeval town of Burford, this charming small luxury hotel offers a very warm
welcome. With its soft-stoned exterior and crooked low-beamed ceilings, this lovely seventeenth century building beckons you to walk
inside and take a break from the chaos of modern life. It's a wonderful place in which to put your feet up for a while and enjoy relaxing in a
thoroughly genteel and harmonious environment.

We were most impressed with the warmth and courteousness of the hotel owner Ian, whose friendliness and attention to detail added some
really special touches to our visit. Old fashioned hospitality is paramount here - nothing is too much trouble - and we felt very well looked after. The theatrically themed dining room serves dinner on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights, caringly made with locally sourced produce, by the head Chef & Co-owner, Stewart. We can recommend them wholeheartedly as well as the renowned Cream Teas on offer in the afternoons.

The decadent ambience here shines through proudly from Ian's love of the West End and Broadway. Each bedroom is presented in its own unique style, all of them beautifully furnished and decorated in tasteful Farrow and Ball colours.
Three bedrooms have comfortable four poster bed whilst other bedrooms boast an elegant combination of antique and modern furnishings. The well-appointed bathrooms are spacious and
immaculate, with roll topped baths and plenty of room to breathe. 

Burford House can also offer two bedrooms which make up to a family suite and there are two rooms in the adjoin Coach House which is 
approached via the sun trapped courtyard garden. We loved the hotel's traditional and luxurious ambience and we delighted in exploring its numerous nooks and crannies. The quirky layout of the older part of the building has resulted in some rooms having their own separate landings which provide you with that little bit of extra
privacy. If you're a fan of teddy bears, you won't be able to resist the hotel's unusual "adopt a teddy" scheme. These adorable Burford House
orphan teddy bears are sold to you complete with their very own adoption papers!

Burford itself has a number of fine hostelries and teashops and is surrounded by England's countryside at its most beautiful. You can
spend idyllic days driving through one glorious Cotswold village after another and admiring the green and rolling landscape in-between.
There are plenty of interesting places to visit, including Blenheim Palace and the Cotswold Wildlife Park and Gardens. Alternatively, if
you're interested in social history, you might wish to visit Burford during the annual "Leveller's Day" event, held in commemoration of the Levellers who were executed here in 1649.

Burford House is truly a unique "Olde English" experience, combined perfectly with the luxury
comforts of modern life.
