History of The Bay Tree Hotel

Acclaimed for its unique charm, the Bay Tree Hotel in Burford has welcomed visitors through its solid oak doors since 1565. With its walls of mellow Cotswold limestone, enhanced by ancient wisterias, it is steeped in character and times past.

Once the country home of Sir Lawrence Tanfield, Chief Baron of the Exchequer to Queen Elizabeth I, the hotel is redolent of history and tradition. Many original features contribute to its authenticity of character - a high rafted hall with galleried stairs, oak-panelled rooms, huge stone fireplaces, tapestries and flagstone floors. To add to the enchantment, find the Woolsack Bar with its inglenook fireplace or the award-winning candle-lit restaurant with views of the rose and herb garden. The secluded walled garden is perfect for a summer evening stroll, while the cosy library is an ideal venue in less clement weather for afternoon tea before a roaring log fire.

The stylish and comfortable decor throughout creates a time honoured, welcoming atmosphere.
