Historic country house set in beautiful, spacious gardens. Perfect rural retreat for families, friends and events. Sleeps 15.

The space
The oldest parts of the house date back to the Tudor period, with most of the present house dating to the late 1800s. The house is full of character with wooden beams, carved wooden mantelpieces, antique furniture and even a nineteenth century grand piano.

Upstairs there are six bedrooms: three doubles, one triple (one superking & one single), one twin room, and one loft room with a double and two single beds. Two of the double rooms are ensuite and there is a shared bathroom for the other rooms.

Downstairs there is a large kitchen and breakfast room, an elegant drawing room and cosy sitting room, a dining room with 12 chairs, and a large conservatory and downstairs loo.

The large garden is a wonderful space for children or adults to walk or run around, play croquet or football, or just lie on the lawn and read a book. Tennis is also possible on local courts 1 mile away in Tenbury Wells (2 racquets and balls provided).

The Old Rectory is perfect at any time of year.
Spring is a lovely time to wander round the garden and enjoy the daffodils and bluebells. In Summer, enjoy a picnic or barbecue (parasol available) and get the croquet set out. In Autumn you can pick damsons and apples from our trees or go blackberry-picking in the nearby hedgerows. In Winter enjoy the log fires and walks or cook up a storm in our well-equipped kitchen.
Even when it’s raining you have plenty to keep you busy including board games, jigsaws, and a 4’6” pool table.

Guest access
Guests have access to all areas of the house and garden.

Location

Burford, United Kingdom

The Old Rectory is situated in a beautiful corner of British countryside. There are lots of excellent walks in the area and various walking books and maps are at your disposal, alongside a range of wellies.

Just over the road is Burford House Garden Store, set in the grounds of an early Georgian mansion on the banks of the River Teme, with 7 acres of gardens, a café and a charming shop selling country house furnishings.

Also just next door is St Mary’s Burford, an ornate 14th century, Grade I listed church. The church was extensively restored in 1889-90 by Sir Aston Webb, the architect of the V&A museum and the main facade of Buckingham Palace.

Tenbury Wells, 1 mile away, is an attractive small former spa town which is a pleasant place to wander round for an hour or so and buy any provisions you need for your stay. There are a range of independent shops including delis with fresh bread, one greengrocers, two butchers, a fishmonger, and Tesco supermarket. It is also randomly the ‘mistletoe capital of the UK’!

The gourmet’s paradise of Ludlow is just 15 minutes’ drive away. With a medieval castle, independent shops, frequent food and antique markets and fine restaurants, Ludlow is not to be missed.

National Trust and English Heritage have some fantastic properties locally including the Georgian villa of Berrington Hall with its Capability Brown gardens, the remains of the palatial 19th century mansion of Witley Court; Croft Castle, Stokesay Castle, Brockhampton estate and more. The Severn Valley steam railway and Bewdley Safari Park are also very popular.

The cathedral cities of Worcester and Hereford are a 40 minute drive away and the historic market town of Shrewsbury is an hour.

If you fancy playing golf there are several reputable 18 hole golf courses nearby; Ludlow Golf Club in particular has very good greens. There is also a good value and informal pay and play 9 hole golf course in beautiful rolling countryside 10 minutes drive away (Sutton Park Golf Club).
We provide used sets of golf clubs to use.

Justin, Rupert, and Patrick Williams grew up in the Old Rectory Burford and love the house very much. We don't live in the area any more but we don’t want to sell this wonderful house! Instead we’ve decided to share it with guests to cover our costs, and allow us to come back every so often. We hope you enjoy the house as much as we do.
