Burford House

Your basket is empty


Complimentary afternoon tea on arrival.

SMALL BUT PERFECTLY FORMED, this Tudor house with its low ceilings, leaded windows, old beams and log fires stands proud in a pretty Cotswold town bursting with antique shops and tea rooms. But there's nothing twee about these luxury lodgings, whose rooms are ravishingly styled with a mix of old oak furniture, books, family pictures and porcelain.

Expect Tudor-style four-posters and plenty of cushions. Shiny bathrooms are designed for spending time in, with roll-top tubs, power showers and an array of bubbles positively encouraging steamy goings-on. We loved Sherborne, with its tub for two.

There are only eight bedrooms here, so breakfast is an informal rather than a starchy affair, with a feast of local fare. If you're peckish later, light lunches and wicked teas are also on the menu. Think freshly-baked granary bread and delicious home-made cakes, locally smoked salmon and aged farmhouse cheeses.

Wicked teas and damson gin

It's also well worth staying in for the evening, when the honesty bar – stocked with home-made damson gin, quince vodka and a dozen malt whiskies – comes into its own.

But it's the hands-on touch and attention to detail of hosts Ian Hawkins and Stewart Dunkley that makes this stylish abode so special, with hand-written menus, a resident cat, vases of fresh flowers and classical music creating a relaxed sense of ease. If you can tear yourselves away from the bedrooms, the garden is awash with flowers. (Betrothals are apparently rife here).
