This grade 2, 17th Century landmark built of local Cotswold Stone with exposed beams and leaded windows is an imposing town house hotel situated in an elevated position in the heart of the picturesque village of Burford. Refurbished sympathetically with comfort in mind Burford House is awash with sumptuous furnishings, antiques and a mixture of modern and traditional art.
From the moment you step over the doorstep, you will feel the warmth and ambiance of one of The Cotswold’s finest. Whether you want to chill out in front of the wood burning stove in the sitting room or relax in the Garden Room enjoying afternoon tea, a drink before dinner or that nightcap before you retire to your luxurious room you will feel completely at ease in these surrounds.
After searching for two years Ian Hawkins came across Burford House for sale, with the then owners having been operating the hotel for eleven and a half years. Driving from the A40 down the Cotswold stone High Street in glorious sunshine Ian hoped that this hotel would be the one. Just stepping into the hall he knew that this was a very special place which was immediately backed up by the high standard of accommodation throughout the hotel.
In Ians own words:
“I am very lucky to have retained the small team of enthusiastic and caring local staff and between us we aim to create a warm and welcoming atmosphere, really good bedrooms and bathrooms and the best breakfasts, lunches, afternoon teas and dinners.”
“We are very privileged that guests who have been returning to Burford house year after year still hold the hotel with high esteem and we have the pleasure of welcoming them back.”
