Swan House is an absolutely stunning country house that fulfils all of those classic ideals that one looks for when imaging a Cotswold cottage. A period building that externally retains all of the character that one could imagine, mixed with some of the most imaginative furnishing and style of any property we have seen make this a real Cotswold tour de force.

The owners (who clearly have superb taste and judgement) have created a contemporary holiday cottage that is likely to be one of the finest in the area. Situated down a quiet lane moments from the infamous Burford High Street and with a large garden to the rear we are sure you will enjoy this as much as we love it!!


Entrance from the rear into large open plan conservatory/dining/kitchen room.

Dining / Conservatory with good sized dining table comfortable for eight. Leather sofa and private views across garden area.

Kitchen, fully equipped, with fridge freezer, 5 gas burner hob and oven, microwave, dishwasher and washer/dryer. Beautiful granite work surfaces, limestone floors all complement the contemporary Farrow and Ball colours and furnishings.

The Cotswolds region

Burford is possibly one of the most famous of the Cotswolds' locations. With its medieval bridge, old stone houses and attractive Tudor and Georgian frontages, Burford is justifiably one of the most picturesque towns in England. Often referred to as the 'Gateway to the Cotswolds', the town was originally a fortified Anglo-Saxon ford which later grew to be an important regional crossroads and wealthy wool town.

The 16th century Tolsey building, once the meeting place for medieval merchants, now houses The Tolsey Museum, a delightful local museum illustrating the town's social and industrial past. The fine church is a real gem with many interesting memorials charting some of Burford's great families. There is also the signature, on the baptisimal font, of Antony Sedley, one of the Levellers besieged in the church in 1649 - three of the ringleaders were executed by Oliver Cromwell's men in the churchyard.

Little changed over the centuries, Burford is popular with visitors, both for its beauty and history but also for its shopping and antiques, and for the wide variety of places to eat, with restaurants, pubs and teashops. Burford is an ideal base for visiting The Cotswolds area as it is within easy driving distance of popular attractions such as Blenheim Palace, Sudley Castle, Warwick Castle and several National Trust Houses and Gardens. Bourton on the Water, Bibury, Cirencester and Stow on the Wold are all with 25 minutes from the property.

"Lovely well-decorated cottage in beautiful Burford"

This is a very nicely decorated, well thought out cottage in Burford. The cottage is large with plenty of living space and lots of nice touches. There is everything you need such as a dishwasher, fridge, freezer and a well-equipped kitchen. We would return to this cottage if we were going back to the area.

"Nice period cottage, contemporary feel"

Some nice welcoming features; tea, coffee, biscuits left out and milk in fridge. Only street parking available. Lovely conservatory dining/seating area overlooking the very large, attractive garden … More
