We stayed here the night before my sisters wedding and it could not have been anymore perfect for her. The cottage was stunning, well decorated, spotlessly clean, quirky and well thought out with ironing board, wine glasses to providing washing up liquid!
The breakfast was amazing with fresh fruit, cereals and perfectly cooked from a wide choice available.
Even digby the dog makes the stay so memorable.
Short walk to cracking pub called carpenters arms with great food.
Thank you for such a special stay

Star Cottage was a superb little find. A 3 bedroomed B & B within the Sawdays stable of guest houses. A wonderful welcome by Peter, beautifully equipped bedrooms, in a wonderful location near to a pub (Carpenters Arms) which we tried on one night (the pub was Ok but not amazing). The breakfast was delicious, fresh fruit inc nectarines, berries and oranges which was delivered in gorgeous crockery. Fresh juices and a huge selection of cooked items to suit all tastes. Well done Star Cottage - we will be back. :-)))

Room Tip: I had room 2 and it was lovely - shower was a tiny bit small but not uncomfortble.

We are a family of four who stayed for a family wedding for 2 nights in July.
We have never stayed in a b&b before, always opting for a large 5 star hotel.

Instantly we felt at home and were greeted warmly and shown our immaculate and very spacious family room. Peter and Sally have not scrimped at all. The sheets were Egyptian cotton and the pillows were fluffy and comfortable. There were home made biscuits, tea, hot chocolate, sewing box, etc, etc. We gave our breakfast order the night before and in the morning had one of the best cooked breakfasts we've ever had. Sally's fruit salad was amazing!
We wouldn't hesitate in going back. We all slept so well and didn't hear a thing all night, unlike some hotels!
The highlight for the children was Digby, Sally and Peter's lovely dog. They took him for a walk which made their day.

This is the second time we have stayed at Star Cottage and it did not disappoint. The exterior of the cottage is bordering on the idyllic, and the interior decoration lives up to the outside. Peter and Sally gave a very warm welcome, and the cottage almost feels like home. We stayed in the smaller double bedroom which is beautifully decorated and immaculately clean, as is the rest of the cottage. The lovely downstairs breakfast room is a perfect place for a smoked haddock and poached egg or a croissant or too. The location is fantastic for Burford and the surrounding Cotswolds with parking on the road just outside. It is a magical little shining star in the Cotswolds and the owners should be very proud of their wonderful little establishment.

My sister and I brought our mum here for her birthday on 7th July, staying just the one night. We wish it had been longer. Not only is the village in which it is situated pretty but the accommodation at Star Cottage was simply lovely.

We stayed in the family room which was very spacious with a double bed and a single, the window overlooked the front garden. The en-suite bathroom was also very spacious and the whole room was beautifully decorated, comfortable and clean. The bathroom window overlooked the rear cottage garden.

In the evening we dined at the Carpenters Arms just 5 imns drive out of the village which was lovely. The staff there were again very friendly and welcoming. Food was lovely too.

Breakfast was lovely as were our hosts, very friendly and welcoming. We would strongly recommend Star Cottage to all and look forward to going back.

Room Tip: Family room is very spacious with a large bathroom

My wife and I stayed for four nights whilst we discovered Oxford and the Cotswolds. Star Cottage is beautifully decorated and very welcoming. A stairway from a stone floored attractive breakfast room leads up to two rooms. We stayed in a beautiful double room with a large bathroom overlooking the cottage garden. Our hosts (and Digby the dog) were very friendly and we can definitely recommend the breakfasts. It's only about 10-15 minutes walk into the centre of Burford, a picturesque Costwolds town with its honey-coloured stone buildings. The local pub serves some great food but the whole area is rich in fantastic restaurants and gastropubs. We can recommend the Rose & Crown at Shilton (less than 10 mins drive away). All in all, fantastic!!
