Burford is one of the most notable market towns in the Cotswold Hills, located in a beautiful position of the Windrush valley and deemed an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The town itself was referenced within the Doomsday Book of 1086 and was once voted by Forbes magazine as the sixth best place to live in the world.

Burford is conveniently positioned on the Oxfordshire /Gloucestershire border and often referred to as the ‘Gateway to the Cotswolds'. The town offers a wide range of everyday shopping facilities including a butcher, newsagent, post office, baker, bank and general store as well as a superb selection of independent retailers, boutiques, antique shops, garden centre, cafes, pubs and restaurants. Other noteworthy local destinations, including Soho Farmhouse and Daylesford Organic Farm shop, are also within easy reach.

The area benefits from an excellent choice of schooling including well-regarded primary and secondary schools within the town and surrounding villages and a very good selection of nearby private schools such as Cokethorpe School, Hatherop Castle and St Hugh's to name a few.

The surrounding countryside provides an extensive network of beautiful footpaths and bridleways - ideal for walkers and horse riders, and the area is also renowned for its country pursuits, offering many recreational opportunities including golf courses at Burford, Wychwood, Naunton Downs, Chipping Norton and Cirencester; racing at Cheltenham and Stratford-upon-Avon and polo at Cirencester Park.

In addition, there are Theatres at Stratford-upon-Avon, Chipping Norton, Cheltenham and Oxford, a multiscreen Cineworld cinema at Witney and not forgetting the world-renowned Cotswold Wildlife Park and Gardens on the edge of the town itself.

The A40 brushes the southern edge of the town and provides good communications with the larger commercial centres including Oxford (and the M40) to the East and Cheltenham (and the M5) to the West. In addition, there are mainline rail stations at Charlbury, Kingham (both c. 8 miles distant) and Oxford Parkway which provide fast regular rail access direct to Oxford and London.
