“Beautiful self catering barn”
Reviewed 31 October 2011

I stayed with my daughter and two young grandchildren in the self-contained barn. We had a wonderful stay for three nights in the barn which was beautifully decorated with good quality furniture and fittings and spotlessly clean. It was very comfortable and cosy. We would highly recommend it and it was extremely good value. Peter and Sally were so welcoming and helpful with the lovely touch of some essentials in the fridge on arrival. We will certainly return hopefully very soon, especially the granchildren who adored Digby the family dog. Star Cottage and the barn we found to be completely child friendly. Burford was a short walk away and the Wildlife Park near Burfood was a great day out. So many other beautiful places to visit nearby. We look forward to our next visit.

Had a weekend with friends in Burford and we were very pleased with this small two room B&B. The rooms are tastefully decorated and provided a comfortable base for exploring this part of the Cotwolds. Breakfast was excellent and the owners are perfect hosts.

Located about 15 minutes walk from the centre of the village Star Cottage is a beautiful stone cottage that has had a lot of TLC. Located off the main road it provides a quiet place to stay.

My wife, myself and my parents-in-law arrived for a Friday night stay at the beginning of September. Initially, we were a little concerned about the lack of parking for two cars (you can only really park on the road outside), but as Sally advised, within an hour or so, the road had cleared and parking was not an issue.
The rooms themselves were nicely decorated and very clean, with good quality linen and fittings.
Star Cottage is one of those places where you very feel that the owners are making a real effort with the service and rooms they provide, something which is very rare these days.
From the moment we arrived to a welcoming pot of tea, to leaving after an excellent full English breakfast, we enjoyed our stay at the Star Cottage immensely and would recommend to anyone wanting a nice quiet break in the Cotswolds.

We found Star Cottage to be an excellent B&B, ten minutes walk out of Burford. Full of character, our bedroom was spacious and finished to an excellent standard. Tastefully decorated with great style. Fresh milk and fine teas in the bedroom, plus a tea given to us on arrival. Bathroom was very large; shower over bath and all spotlessly clean and pleasant. Breakfast was fantastic - choice was wonderful and I tucked into smoked haddock and poached egg done to perfection. Fruit, yoghurts, toast and full English all available. Very comfortable, personal place. There can be few bed and breakfasts better than this! Can't wait to return.

Fantastic B&B in the heart of the pretty Cotswolds - Peter & Sally couldn't do enough to welcome and help us. Would definitely recommend it - beautifully furnished and decorated.

After unsuccessfully trying to book into another hotel in Burford that our relatives recommended, we came across Star Cottage on Tripadvisor and decided to book a long weekend there instead. We were glad that our plans had changed as Star Cottage is a gorgeous shabby chic style cottage with a lovely homely feel. The owners Sally and Peter could not have done anything else to make our stay more enjoyable as the bed was very comfortable and the room immaculately clean, warm and quiet. Our 3 year old daughter loved her 'big bed' and was an even bigger fan of the shortbread biscuits and Digby the family dog.

Breakfast to order left us full up for the rest of the day with a full english including delicious local sausages, cereals, fruits and croissants. We were so full up that we couldn't even manage a cream tea in one of the many local tea rooms!

The location was great as only a 10 minute walk away from Burford village centre along the pavement and the road was not dangerous as we had our daughter to consider. The Carpenters Arms where we had a lovely dinner is also a few minutes walk away and although they don't have a dedicated childrens menu, they will prepare a smaller version of the adults menu without any fuss.

I am surprised there is a negative comment on here about Star Cottage as we found the B&B to be very child friendly. Our daughter did not have any problems with the decor or throws etc but instead told us it was very pretty inside! We would love to return again!

We recently spent a week in the self-contained barn at Star Cottage on a self-catering basis.
Peter, Sally (and Digby) are very hospitable and welcoming and we really appreciated the relaxed, informal atmosphere of their home.
It was only a ten minute or so walk into Burford, which has a good range of pubs and restaurants and Fulbrook itself has two pubs.
All in all we felt that the barn represented excellent value for money and we enjoyed our stay there.
