Overview

About the property

The lovely town of Burford occupies a position on the meandering River Windrush. Burford is built on a fairly steep hill, and the view from the top of the hill looking down the High Street to the river is one of the classic panoramas of the Cotswolds. A lovely 4-arched medieval bridge, widened in the 18th century, crosses the Windrush, and though Burford itself does not occupy the northern bank, a walk across the bridge is rewarded by wonderful views across watermeadows to the spire of St. John the Baptist parish church.

152 The Hill has been completed renovated and now offers 5 individual holiday homes, The Cottage is one of them, all five properties can be all be rented if you would like, family Christmas, special occasions, the whole property will sleep up to 23, but you will all have your individual space, please see 8379757, 8379752, 6977567, 8379755, and please contact us for details.

The Cottage is a two bedroom cottage, with one bathroom with shower, it can sleep up to 4 people, the bedrooms are individual, one double bed and one with a king size bed, downstairs is open plan living, kitchen, dining area and a sitting room with TV.

A communal garden can be found at the back of the property, it is lawned and is available to all guests that are staying at 152 The Hill. When you step outside the property, you are metres away from a newsagent, a butcher, a deli, a chemist, restaurants, pubs, a little further down is the Co-op shop. It is a brilliant place to stay as a base to explore the Cotswolds, with many places to visit.

Lovely cottage in the heart of Burford

  • 5 of 5

Really lovely 2 bedroom cottage in Burford high street but behind other cottages so away from road and therefore peaceful. Very helpful owner ( we added extra night at last minute) and the most delicious cupcakes on arrival. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend - perfect
