“Pretty villages abound in the Cotswolds, and while each one has its own flavour, most of them share a similar aesthetic thanks to the gorgeous Cotswold stone they are cut from. Burford, Bourton-on-Water, Chedworth are some of the handsomest villages in the area. As well as admiring the architecture, visitors can dive into a pub for a pint, tuck into fine Cotswold cuisine in a local eatery or peruse the wares in one of the many antique shops.”
Burford is a wonderful place to retire. Located in north Oxfordshire, approximately 20 miles from Oxford, the town is considered to be the southern gateway to the Cotswolds. Burford’s picturesque High Street, lined with period houses, cottages, shops, pubs, restaurants and cafes, slopes down to the River Windrush. There’s a wide range of independent shops including a bakery, a butcher’s, delicatessen, post office and the country’s oldest pharmacy. Nearer to home, the Burford Garden Company has a 300-seat café/restaurant, food hall, art gallery and a fabulous range of gits and homeware.
At Cotswold Gate, prices for apartments start from £480,000 for a two-bedroom, first-floor apartment with a covered balcony. A spacious two-bedroom house, available for £575,000, features a drawing room and a fabulous kitchen/dining room which opens onto a private terrace. The house has a utility area just off the kitchen and there’s a ground floor cloakroom. On the first floor, the master bedroom has its own en-suite shower room and the guest bedroom is adjacent to the main bathroom.
