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!
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.
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.

Property Owner Jacqui says
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 !
FOOD AND DRINK
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.
If you'd rather spend your luxury self-catering break indulging in the little luxuries, let an in-house chef prepare a mouth-watering meal for you and your partner (on prior request and subject to an additional cost).
Set six miles away in Lechlade, The Five Alls is a lovely pub and restaurant offering a wide variety of choice including a tonne of Cotswold's artisan produce on the menu. There are many characterful inns and farm shops dotted around the local area and with bustling Burford on your doorstep, you are sure to find your own personal favourite! For that special celebration, try The Wild Rabbit.
