Burford, often referred to as 'Gateway to the Cotswolds', it was the first Cotswold town, before 1107, to be granted a charter. Burford is an attractive town with a steep main street leading down to the River Windrush.

Many of the buildings date back to Tudor and Georgian times. Burford is well known for its antique shops and is an ideal base for exploring the Cotswolds. A lovely area for walking and cycling.
