Cotland House
Ranked #9 of 15 Burford B&B and Inns
Reviewed March 16, 2012

Just back from a very agreeable stay at Cotland House which was, unfortunately, only for one night. I'm normally a little wary of staying in B&Bs because when they're bad they can be very, very bad. Cotland House, however, is very, very good.

Shelley was friendly and attentive but not intrusive (although I note I didn't get any home made brownies or biscuits like some other reviewers!). The house is located just a few minutes walk from all the amenities of Burford which I'm told has 15 pubs, but I didn't manage them all in one night.

I had the attic double room which was a good size although the en-suit had only a (very nice) bath and not my preferred shower. Plenty of fluffy white towels and clean bed linen and a good selection of teas, coffee and hot chocolate. Breakfast is very good and the full English is cooked to order with offers for top ups of tea, coffee and toast. A nice touch was a variety of newspapers.

The best recommendation I can give is that I will return to Cotland House soon and would have no hesitation recommending it to friends and family.

Absolutely lovely B&B, would highly recommend. Rooms were beautifully decorated and very cosy. Our host was attentive but not overbearing, and advised us well on local restaurants and walks. She also prepared a delicious breakfast for us, served in the lovely cosy dining room with log fire and newspapers. Perfect! Only downside was no off-street parking, but plenty of parking on quiet street by side of the house. The B&B is a short walk outside Burford - only about 5-10mins walk to the middle of town, with pavements all the way.

Cotland House is a lovely B&B, in so much as it has a lovely french feel to it's interior, clean, good sized rooms, good in-room facilities and lovely little extras such as board games, toys, books and biscuits in each room. We took two double rooms for 2 adults and 2 small children and had lots of space in each room. Shelley, the owner, is delighful, helpful and friendly and her breakfast is to die for, (seriously, fresh fruit salad involving blackberries, kiwis and strawberries, pots of jam, honey, warm croissants and, if you still need it, a cooked breakfast!). My only small gripe was it was slightly noisy at night (we are used to very quiet!) with cars and headlights going past due to being located on a main road, but otherwise a great place to stay! Would recommend highly.

Stayed here for two nights in November and found this to be the perfect place to stay in Cotswolds. It is located just outside Burford with it's pubs, shops etc. The location is also good thinking of outdoors. You can either start walking from there or drive to near-by towns and villages. The closest pub is just few steps away.
We really felt like staying at home. The rooms were beautifully decorated and the breakfast was good but what we liked the most was the friendly hostess. She made us feel very welcome and was very helpful. If I will travelling to the area again, I will definetely stay in Cotland House again.

Beautiful house, peaceful location (views of the country-side in the distance from bedroom windows), very nice owners and delicious and beautifully presented breakfast! About 10 minutes walk to High Street and another 5 more minutes uphill to the Swanbrook bus-stop (B&B and Swanbrook bus-stop are on opposite ends of high street) where you can catch the bus to Oxford or Cheltenham.

I enjoyed my stay here!

We enjoyed 3 night stay here in July 2011 and found cotland house a comfy retreat to return to each night after exploring the Cotswold villages.
Our room was comfy and had ensuite shower. Our bed was a standard double size as expected, but mattress had a ‘dip in the middle’ – so the lighter person rolls into the center of the bed and sleep not perfect.
Breakfast however was delicious and served in a smart breakfast area. A cooked breakfast is included, and I don’t mean a greasy fry-up, but perfect poached eggs etc – very delicious!
We chose this B&B for its location and this did not disappoint. Burford is a charming village to wander around, with lots of pubs for lunch or dinner.
Another benefit of this B&B, is a pub (more like a restaurant) that is literally a few steps from the B&B. No problem if you both want to have a few drinks with dinner as its just a few steps back to the B&B! We ate their one night and food was delicious & fairly (although not cheaply) priced and good value for money.
