Burford is a picturesque town known as the "gateway to the Cotswolds", a predominantly rural landscape with stone-built villages, historical towns and stately homes and gardens.
Being 18 miles west of Oxford, 2 miles from the Oxfordshire border, and on the southern bank of the River Windrush. the town dates back to the middle Saxon period and is recorded in the Doomsday Book as being an "agricultural village". However, around 1100 the town was granted its charter meaning that today, despite having a population of only 1,400 people (2012), it is classified as a "town".
