My husband and I spent three nights at the Box Tree Cottage. Caroline is a charming host. Her home is beautifully appointed and our stay was exceptionally comfortable. The garden, the neighbourhood and all of her local recommendations were perfect. We especially appreciated the accommodation of our dietary restrictions. Breakfast was delicious each and every morning.

We (two couples) stayed at Boxtree Cottage. What a wonderful find! A warm welcome from Caroline, a beautiful house in a chocolate box village. Comfy beds, gorgeous garden and the most delicious breakfast ever! Thank you.

My husband and I had rare 2 night break here without children in February. I agree with all the other reviewers in every respect and would highly recommend. The Spice Lounge in Burford was great for a curry and Stow and Bourton worth a visit . Hadn't heard about Daylesford Farm before but really enjoyed a visit here for a... More

The accommodation catered for our every need - a good bed, excellent shower/bath, lovely décor, etc. Breakfast could not be faulted and a very attentive host. Great walk in the local area. Many thanks

My cousins and I had a lovely couple of nights at the cottage. We were very well looked after, breakfast was lovely - the best poached eggs I think I've ever had! Caroline was great, friendly and helpful in advising us on good places to eat and visit. The room I was in was warm and very comfortable. I have... More

Wonderful location just outside Burford in the pretty village of Taynton. The accommodation was beautifully presented, very clean, with lots of thoughtful extra little touches. Breakfast was delicious with a good selection of cereal, yoghurt and compote as well as a cooked option. Caroline was very helpful in suggesting things to do and places to eat. We would certainly recommend... More

Lovely house, great owners, beautiful location, homemade cookies, sensational breakfast. All in close proximity to Burford which is an amazing little town too: nice scale with interesting shops, but a sense that there's a real community and a purpose about the town. Good value at £100, but no cards so take cash - well worth the extra hassle. Wi-fi a... More

We stayed at Box Tree Cottage for 2 nights. It was perfect. An excellent base to explore the Cotswolds. The rooms were beautiful and very comfortable. Breakfast was very tasty and complete. Caroline and Richard were very helpful. Box Tree Cottage is in Taynton very near to Burford and about an hour to Oxford. The traffic to Oxford was bad... More

We spent 2 nights at Box Tree Cottage. The house and gardens are beautiful, located in a picture postcard village . Caroline and Richard went out of their way to assist us with our travel plans and make sure we had a great stay. Breakfast couldn't have been better and we were too full to eat much until dinner time.... More
