The rolling Cotswold countryside is easily accessible from The Bull at Burford, which is set among a cluster of traditional stone buildings on the bustling High Street of one of the area's most charming towns. This boutique bolthole is housed in a 15th-century former coaching inn, complete with courtyard and stables, and is up the street from the Tudor-era Tolsey Museum, which charts the town's history. 

Picturesque Bourton-on-the-Water, known for its elegant bridges, is a 20-minute drive away, while Blenheim Palace, birthplace of Winston Churchill, is around 25 minutes' drive from the inn. Oxford city centre, with its medieval university buildings, is approximately 40 minutes away by car.

There's a rustic-chic feel to The Bull's AA-Rosette restaurant, which features wooden beams, exposed brick walls and smart leather seating, and serves an "imaginative menu" (The AA Hotel Guide 2019) of brasserie-inspired dishes. Guests can also relax in the cosy lounge.

The AA Hotel Guide 2019 praises the "stylish, attractively presented bedrooms that reflect plenty of charm and character". There are 18 rooms, which range from traditionally furnished double rooms with exposed beams, to grander options kitted out with 4-poster beds and living areas. Every room has free Wi-Fi, a TV, and tea- and coffee-making facilities.

I thought it was far too expensive for what it was. It was a superior room but noisy and the toilet was dirty and bed small. It was so hot as well. And there was no fridge in room. The staff were lovely but that's it really!

Staff were very helpful in trying to resolve the fact our room had been allocated to a regular visitor.

Booked a superior ground floor room and checked with the hotel twice that we would have that. Arrived and found we were in upstairs superior. Only ground floor room was basic. Refund was made but very very disappointed with the resulting room. Ok but basic.

Difficult to find the car park entrance, and obviously limited space, and parked in public car park on the second night. Just by chance met up with friends today who live in another city, and could not believe they stayed at the Bull a couple of years ago, and was also delighted with their stay.

We know Burford quite well, and to sit outside the Bull on the Main Street at Burford chatting with other customers was lovely in the sunshine. Excellent service and excellent food. Bathroom was spacious and the bed was super comfy.

Parking is a bit tight, however, there is a free public car park only a couple of minutes stroll away. Would choose to stay at The Bull on our next visit.
