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.

The free glass of wine was offered from the full wine list, and was a large glass, which we thought was very generous. The lounge and restaurant areas were sympathetically updated - we particularly liked the numerous paintings in the restaurant area.

Karlli (the manager) could not have been more friendly and helpful. I had made some requests for the room and our table (as it was our Ruby wedding weekend) and she fulfilled all the requests and more. Thanks Karli for making our weekend so special. It was a pleasure to meet you in person.

We paid for a superior room but it was at the top of the hotel "attic" O.K. we had a four poster bed but we are both 76 !!!!! they could see our age you would have thought they would have offered one on the first floor or second floor. The room next to us was being up dated and we had to ask if they could do the work in the day time when we were out and about not in the evening at 7pm !!!!
