It's just 5 miles from each of the popular centres of Burford, Stow-on-the-Wold and Bourton-on-the-Water, so you couldn't be better placed. The area is famous for it's lovely quinessentially English countryside and it's lovely honey coloured stone villages. Within easy reach of the cottage are many places of interest, National Trust houses and beautiful gardens to visit. Oxford, Startford on Avon and Warwick castle are all within an hour's drive. For children the Cotswold Wildlife Park and Cotswold Farm Park, with Adam Henson's rare breeds of farm animals are close by.

Burford is a lovely, medieval town built on a hill and the village of Fifield, where the cottage is situated is a typical, pretty Cotswold village. It is on a hill overlooking a lovely valley with woods in the distance. It's perfect if you like walking as there are numerous footpaths running almost from the cottage door. You can walk for miles in unspoilt countryside. Fifield has a pub, The Merrymouth Inn just half a mile from the cottage and in the neighbouriung village of Nether westcote, a mile away is the very smart and popular gastropub, The Feathered Nest, if you feel like spoiling yourselves!

Beautiful little cottage surrounded by the gardens of the main (owners)house. Our 4 dogs were made very welcome and with a secure garden we could let them loose without problems.Well located in the heart of the best part of the Cotswolds with Burford , Bourton on the Water and Stow on the Wold all very close. Kitchen was well stocked and even a carrot cake was there to greet us.

"Perfect Costwold Home Away from Home"
This is an ideal place to stay in the Cotswolds – between Burford and Stow-on-the-Wold. We first stayed at Peacocks in 1985 (one of the first guests!) and have returned numerous times since.
The grounds and gardens are perfect with the sights and sounds of llamas and other animals to complete the idyllic experience. Peacocks is a self contained wing of an attractive Cotswold country home, beautifully decorated and equipped. It is a perfect place to stay whether hiking in the area, visiting the many local attractions and historic sites, shopping and dining (or bringing back something to eat from the Huffkins bakery in either Burford or Stow). The owners are a terrific couple who make this a true home away from home.

We have just returned from our second stay at Peacock's Cottage and yet again made to feel very welcome & comfortable. On arrival there is always tea / coffee / milk and biscuits which stops the inevitable rush to find somewhere to find milk after a long journey. The cottage is beautifully clean, bedding is lovely with beautiful soft pillows. The cottage is very well situated for access to all the key areas of the Cotswolds, with beautiful tourist villages right on your doorstep. For children there is a Falconry Center, Wildlife Park & a huge Maize Maze close by - which are fabulous places to visit. The cottage is situated just outside the village and if it is peace you are looking for, then look no further. As a family, we would highly recommend staying here.
