Burford Hotels

Tucked away in the lush rolling hills of the Cotswolds, the picturesque, historic village of Burford lends itself to lazy strolls along tranquil country lanes, and indulgent afternoon tea. You’ll find a wonder of oddities and antiques hidden away in the many cosy, boutique shops here as well as the holy serenity of the village’s 11th Century church. A few miles from the village itself you’ll find a fascinating wildlife park spanning the grounds of a splendid Victorian manor house.

Things to see

Without doubt one of the most enjoyable aspects of a visit to Burford is slowly wandering your way through the village itself. The aromas of freshly baked cake and the deep perfume of brewing tea are sure to tempt you in for a brief rest, before you venture off to explore the elegant trinkets in one of the many antique shops here. The village church is also worth a visit, especially as the intricate spire and welcoming pillared hall also play host to a number of antique fairs during the year. If you’re visiting with the family, then kids’ll love the nearby Cotswold Wildlife Park. You’ll find portly rhinos, elegant giraffes, and many more species happily grazing in the vast grounds of the preserved Manor House, and there’s even a narrow gauge railway that twists and turns around the park’s attractions. Don’t forget to stop for refreshments at the café, too.

Hotels in Burford

Burford hotels are, in general, a welcoming collection of rustic pubs, lodges, and guesthouses that offer cosy upstairs rooms. You can pop down to the bar for a warming tea, coffee, or something stronger, and there’s restaurant quality food to tingle your taste buds in most establishments. While the choice of discount hotels is limited, there’s still a few places that are ideal for visitors on a budget. As travel in Burford is limited to walking and driving, there’s often complimentary guest parking at most hotels in the area.

Where to stay

If you’re planning on taking some scenic drives around the fresh, open countryside during your stay, then basing yourself along the Oxford Road just outside the village will make getting around by car much easier. You’ll still be within walking distance of the village itself too. Antiques enthusiasts, or shoppers in general, will want to find accommodation along the High Street, as you can step right into the heart of the village, and it’s collection of boutique cafés, traditional pubs, and enticing shops. For easy access to the Wildlife Park, and a little seclusion, then Holwell can be a great choice.
