Vivien does everything possible, but in a relaxed way, to achieve the highest standard in everything she provides for her guests. Everywhere is immaculate. Our bedroom and bathroom were beautifully and tastefully equipped and nothing is skimped. Her sitting room with its log fire is extremely comfortable and her cooking traditional and very delicious. Altogether a perfect and very generous... More

We had a really lovely stay at Yew Tree Cottage. The room and house were incredibly comfortable and cosy, in a beautiful location. Vivien was a wonderful host - the breakfast was delicious and Vivien was very welcoming, accommodating, and helpful. We hope to return soon and would definitely recommend a stay here.

Our booking with Vivian was made by another B&B owner who could not accommodate us for extra nights. In retrospect, how good it was not to have moved on from the area! Our stay with Vivian was akin to staying with family. Vivian is a wonderful host. Breakfast in Vivian's kitchen presented a table loaded with fresh and home-cooked fruits,... More

We booked online with Vivien Burford, owner and manager. Stayed for three nights (our second visit to the Cotswolds from California). Ideal location for touring the small villages and historic sites in the Cotswolds, as long as you learn to drive the narrow roads. Inviting hostess, great dogs, wonderful yard, charming room, fantastic breakfast each morning.

We had a lovely stay in this B&B in September 2011 and we were back again in July 2015. We had a marvellous time cycling in the country side and had again two meals in Vivian's cosy kitchen.

Located in the tiny hamlet of Turkdean, this wonderful B & B with beautifully maintained gardens is idyllically located without being isolated. Vivien welcomes you to her entire house and accommodates all reasonable requests. Read the website to understand the location and facilities. One night we were treated to an unusual "Floral Choral Evensong at the beautifully decorated tiny church... More

If you want charming, this is it! I had an absolutely fantastic time at the Yew Tree Cottage. It exceeded my expectations. The B&B and Gardens- Everything was just spectacular and beautiful. The house was so cozy and the bed and the guestroom were VERY comfortable. I slept so well in the Beamed Bedroom-a fantastic option! I loved Vivien's décor... More

We booked this in June. You would think that a booking ahead of a September event that far in advance would be respected. Sadly not. We were given to understand that a HUGE favour was being done for us taking a one night reservation (ahem? This is a B&B) we had to book one night because we are travelling abroad... More

Have stayed in the Cotswolds several times; Yew Tree was one of the more lovely cottages that'd work well as a movie location (I'd appreciate a finder's fee, Vivien). Short drive to classic sites like Hidcote Garden, the Slaughters, Broadway, Chipping Camden. Coolest kitchen with plank table and views out over her beautiful gardens, which we enjoyed with a bottle... More
