Today, following our Oxford orientation, we'll set out to visit one of our favorites, Burford, to experience the magic that draws thousands of tourists through this area each year.
Burford, nestled along the banks of the River Windrush, has maintained its charm, and is of historical significance having held a local market for the past 900 years.
These rooms, such as the 'White Garden' and 'Fuchsia Garden' are linked together by imaginative vistas and furnished with topiaries.
Some have ponds and fountains, and all are planted with flowers in bedding schemes.
This historic, stunning and unique hotel is a beautifully restored property and features fabulous original architecture and every first class amenity you can imagine.
It is a luxury hotel like no other and we are so thrilled to be staying at this unique hotel for our tour of the gardens of the Cotswolds.
