In the picture-postcard town of Burford, the southern gateway to the Cotswolds, is to be found the charming Bay Tree Hotel.
Set amidst the celebrated ancient black and white timbered buildings and those constructed from the beautiful honey-coloured Cotswold stone, a scene is created which beyond doubt has an aura of yesteryear.
The Cotswolds abounds in attractive villages and towns, pretty streets with a wealth and variety of antique shops, inviting small cafés and enchanting hotels and hostelries, amongst which the Bay Tree Hotel at Burford is truly outstanding. Few could resist the rustic charm of this picturesque retreat.
An impressive location for country breaks whatever the season, the Bay Tree Hotel is well situated for exploring the countryside, for visiting National Trust properties and famous Cotswold gardens, for a trip to the races or as a business venue.
For a wedding or other special celebration, the Bay Tree Hotel provides a delightful setting.
An oak staircase leads to our luxurious bedrooms, each having individual character and decorated in warm traditional colours with fine, often antique, furniture for a true country feel.
The secluded walled garden is the ideal place to relax, take afternoon tea or stroll across the lawns to unwind, discuss business or even play a game of croquet.
Dining in the Bay Tree Restaurant at Burford is a unique and distinctly pleasurable experience.
The tapestries, flagstone floor and original leaded windows, overlooking the patio and garden, combine to give the dining room an elegant, country feel. Here you can relax and enjoy the finest in traditional and modern English cooking and first-class service.
Adjacent to the restaurant, the patio provides an alternative venue for the enjoyment of a meal or an early evening drink.
With their open log fires, stone flagged floor and comfortable armchairs, the Woolsack Bar at The Bay Tree Hotel, Burford, and adjoining library are ideal for relaxing with the newspaper, taking afternoon tea or enjoying your coffee and liqueurs.
