Set on a steep hill leading down to the River Windrush, Burford has a fine collection of topsy turvy cottages, ancient stone townhouses and a host of tea rooms and antique shops. Burford gets pretty busy but its picture postcard streets are well worth it and if you wander off down the laneways you'll be transported back in time. There's an excellent garden centre on the outskirts and the lovely Cotswold Wildlife Park just down the road.
