Grade II listed cottage, in the heart of Burford, tucked down a little private path. Inside you have wonderfully luxurious and spacious kitchen, separate dining and living room, 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms all rooms have been furnished to a high standard. Please note, 2 of the beds are zip and link, so can be twins rooms if you would like.

The space

Tucked down a little private path, this utter gem of a cottage is as good as it gets! Butler's Cottage, a Grade II listed building with a long history dating back hundreds of years, is the absolute epitome of a classic Burford cottage - historic, hidden, quirky, luxurious and spacious, we love it from top to bottom. Inside is a thoughtfully and exquistely furnished home, the kitchen packed with kit, the dining and living rooms smart, simple and beautiful, while upstairs the three large bedrooms are lavished with top-notch beds and two bathrooms, one a 'Jack & Jill' bathroom reminding us that you're never far from a little bit of Burford's eccentricity! The thing that struck us with this cottage is that although you are about 10 paces from Burford High Street, once you step through the secret entrance, step down the passageway, suddenly it's quiet you and your holiday begins, we absolutely love it. An exceptional holiday property for families or couples who love the Cotswolds.

Lovely home, very well worth the trip. Only downside was it was a bit warm for the first day or so we were there and hard to cool off, but think that is usual for the area, no AC

What a beautiful home in a wonderful location, with everything we needed. We were surprised at how quiet the house was considering it was on the high street, which led to a wonderfully peaceful night's sleep. Parking was the only issue on the Saturday and Sunday but I think this may have been due to it being particularly busy over half term. I would highly recommend staying at this property and hope to come back again in the future.

Beautiful house in the center of Burford but still very quiet. Very well equipped kitchen and very nice beds. We really liked this house but with three children it's a pitty that there's no garden.

This was a beautiful cottage in a great location. We loved being right on Burford High Street and the Co-op opposite was very convenient for all the little things we needed. We were a short drive from some wonderful pubs for lunches and the wildlife park. The kitchen was fully stocked and a trip to the local butcher provided some excellent dinners. We had two young children with us and although there were some steep staircases, there were doors that prevented little ones from going where they shouldn't. The travel cot and high chair were perfect. Our party of 4 adults and 2 young children were very comfortable.

We absolutely loved everything about our stay at Butler's cottage. It's a beautiful cottage furnished to an exceptionally high standard, even down to the kitchen appliances. It all feels quite luxurious but cosy at the same time. It's a shame we couldn't use the Aga for cooking as I find this quite exciting but not a big deal, the regular oven is extremely good. Burford is a lovely place to spend a few days, we sampled most of the cosy pubs while we were there (the food is exceptional in most!) The angel was a particular favourite of ours. The cottage is ideally situated for exploring the area. We would definitely return without a moment's hesitation!

I work for Manor Cottages! We are a boutique cottage agency specialising in holiday properties in the Cotswolds and Bath region, an area about 1 -2 hours to the west of London (depending on where you are travelling to of course). We visit and and check all of our cottages and in many cases actually manage them too. Either way, you can be certain of the standard and style and description of the property being of a high standard and if it is more basic then we'll make sure you know this.
We're friendly, we're approachable and (of course) we're based in the area so we know it like the back of our hands. What we're not, however, is a large multi-national company stuck in a call centre with thousands of cottages - you will be pleased to know.
Finally you'll be pleased to know that any property we advertise really exists! Not that we're pointing fingers at anyone out there, but we do get to hear of some horror stories of cottages not existing when a customer arrives..... imagine that.
Anyway, we are here to help you and help you get the cottage holiday you want and are looking for.
