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

Caroline gives her all in presenting a beautiful environment for all her guests! She has homemade shortbread cookies in your room for your daily tea preparation. Her breakfasts are English perfect with Richard preparing them...the table settings are fit for a Queen! The bedding and towels are of fine quality. The view from the windows are picture perfect.

Picture postcard house in a picture postcard area, spotlessly clean, very pretty indeed, very pleasant and helpful hostess. Prices are similar to good Paris hotels, but the experience is worth it. I am not sure if I am in love with everything about Box Tree Cottage, or the Cotswold area in general, but I am definitely besotted with my wonderful... More
