An enchanting Cotswold retreat in the picturesque town of Burford, few could resist the rustic charm of this 16th century residence, whether it is for a leisure break, business trip or special occasion. Bay Tree won Small Hotel of the Year at the National Enjoy England Excellence Awards 2011. The hotel also has a Gold Award for Excellence from Enjoy England. The Bay Tree is steeped in history and awash with character, from the foundations of its mellow stone walls - clad with pinkish-purple wisteria blooms - to its wooden beam rafters. Oak-panelled public rooms, bare stone walls and original stone fireplaces, including an inglenook fireplace, provide a textured canvas upon which rich fabrics, woven tapestries and antiques have been laid down with exquisite flair. For your relaxation, you can select a good book from the hotel library, sink back into a comfortable chair and allow the stresses of everyday life to gradually seep away. In the summer months, the tranquillity of the walled gardens make for a relaxing haven where you can enjoy a refreshing drink on a warm evening.

Couples particularly like the location — they rated it 9.6 for a two-person trip.
