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 located along 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 and its collection of medieval university buildings, takes approximately 40 minutes to reach by car.

There's a rustic-chic feel to The Bull's 2-AA-Rosette restaurant, which features wooden beams, exposed brick walls and smart leather seating, and serves an "imaginative menu" (The AA Hotel Guide 2018) of brasserie-inspired dishes. Guests can also relax in the cosy lounge.

The AA Hotel Guide 2018 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 flat-screen TV and tea- and coffee-making facilities.

Our twin attic room was well appointed, obvious and pleasantly old, with interesting sloping floors!

When booking hotel was attracted to the photo, presumably of the Bull, and description shown on Travelzoo's website. However the accommodation doesn't even appear on this photo and was therefore surprised to find The Bull in the middle of the High Street surrounded by other pubs and shops. A photo of the Bull, not of the nearby area, should have been shown.

The room was very spacious with everything we needed. Unfortunately the bed, although large was not very comfortable. The hotel was very clean and delightfully old and quirky.

Burford can be very busy but it is a lovely small town with typical Cotswolds buildings. It is very conveniently placed to visit some lovely places in the Cotswolds.

Only downside was the cleanliness of our room. We understand its a old coaching Inn however the room could do with a good clean and a lick of paint.

The fantastic breakfast. There was so much choice including fish which I love. The homemade "sticky museli" was delicious.
