Situated on the Oxfordshire/Gloucestershire border and known as The Gateway to the Cotswolds, it offers a range of shopping facilities, local schools, a fine parish Church and a number of public houses. High Street chains have yet to make a significant impression on Burford, which adds to its uniqueness and helps make it an fantastic and unique place to live, work and visit. The town nestles in the Windrush Valley surrounded by beautiful countryside yet is within easy reach of Oxford and Cheltenham, both of which provide the main cultural and shopping facilities for the area. There are good road communications to London via the A40/M40 and a train service from Charlbury to London Paddington.
