Little Scarlet | Luxury Self-Catering Cottage | Burford, Cotswolds

Guaranteed to set the heart racing is this undeniably romantic Grade-II listed cottage in Burford. Little Scarlet is a quintessential Cotswolds cottage with va-va-voom, offering a luxury self-catering couples-only retreat which has been designed with pure indulgence in mind. Spend days pottering around Burford's boutiques and tearooms followed by Champagne-fuelled evenings in the twin set of bathtubs!

Luxury self-catering cottage in Burford

Located in the bosom of absurdly pretty Burford, Little Scarlet offers a unique couples escape between the dreamy rolling hills and creamy stone cottages of the Cotswolds. When not exploring, candlelit-dinners in the private courtyard and deep soaks in the twinset of crimson red slipper baths are both highly recommended at this luxury self-catering home. After a day of countryside cavorting there'll be nothing cosier than retreating to the inglenook fire and unfurling on the sumptuous sofa.

Bedrooms and Bathrooms
Occupying the entire second floor is the cottage's pièce de résistance, two crimson red slipper baths poised in the middle of the bathroom just calling for the company of chilled Champagne and an evening in a haze of bubbles. The shamelessly romantic master bedroom with super king-size bed nestles in the eaves at the top of cottage, like a well-kept secret. 

Little Scarlet's alluring, rose covered courtyard is dinky but divine. Tucked outside the kitchen's French doors, it is the perfect place for weekending lovers to enjoy a glass of Bolly and a nibble on a selection of the finest local artisan produce as the afternoons drift into dusk. Be sure to pick up a wedge of Jersey cows' 'Burford' from the village for the cheeseboard! For adventures further afield, wildlife enthusiasts will love a trip to the Cotswold Wildlife Park, whilst history buffs may prefer to visit the birthplace of Shakespere at Stratford-Upon-Avon and catch a performance of an old favourite.

For Relaxation
A stroll through the cobbled streets of Burford, with its eclectic menu of eateries, antique treasure troves and wonderful selection of tearooms is a dandy way to pass the day. Meander along the banks of the River Windrush and challenge your beau to a game of Poohsticks from the three arched medieval bridge. Once you're ready to kick-back, head to the ivy covered Cotswolds Arms for a night cap, then home to climb the stairs to your seventh heaven.

There is parking on the road outside and there is also a free car park five minutes' walk away in the centre of Burford. The property is well-equipped with Smeg oven microwave, washing machine, dishwasher and fridge with freezer. Please note there is not a separate shower.



Style: There is no shortage of style and romance at Little Scarlet. With 1940/50s-inspired interiors, carefully curated original artworks and flamboyant twists, the cottage is a sophisticated realm of sumptuousness.

Little Scarlet is a Grade-II listed quintessential Cotswold cottage situated in the beautiful old town of Burford. The cottage is extremely stylish, cosy and romantic. It´s the log burner and two roll top baths sat side by side in front of the feature fireplace which make it pure bliss !

To Be or Not To Be Visiting nearby Stratford-upon-Avon without seeing a production of Shakespeare would be like going to Rome and not visiting the Vatican City. The three theatre spaces are run by the world-renowned Royal Shakespeare Company and have witnessed performances by such legends as Lawrence Olivier, Judi Dench and Sir Ian McKellan. Experience a theatre tour, take a trip up the tower for stunning views and take lunch in the Riverside Cafe before enjoying a play written by the Bard himself.

Blenheim Palace A world heritage site and the only non-royal country house to hold the title of palace in England!

A host of events go on throughout the year from the Festival of Transport, outdoor cinema and the Summer jousting tournament to name just a few!



The Cotswolds is an area famed for its top quality local produce - try the Cotswolds Cheese Company in Burford for delicious artisan and farmhouse cheeses, or ask them to create a bespoke hamper for enjoying on those long lazy summer picnics.
