Come and stay with us

Arrive and relax, that’s all you need to do when you come to stay at The Bay Tree and let us do the rest. Forget about everything else and live for the moment, whether you’re here for a wedding or a weekend away, the experience now is the only one that matters. Our beautiful hotel is every inch your humble country abode in a location that allows you to admire the surrounding beauty while sinking into its tranquil seclusion unnoticed. Nestled away on a quiet side street in the historic town of Burford, The Bay Tree is the perfect hideaway to escape the buzz of everyday life – nobody need know you’re here.

Walk through the natural archway of blossoming wisteria that drapes decoratively over the famous honey-coloured stone and let us welcome you. Sink into an armchair as we bring you some refreshments. You’re here to stay and we want you to enjoy it from beginning to end.

We have a history, everybody does, and we have plenty on show to inspire the picture in your mind of how our story first began. The flagstone floors, big open fireplaces, and exposed beams have been restored to their former glory to honour the charming character of the building that still stands proud today. However, as much as we cherish the past, we also live for the present. We’re all character and charm, with lots of contemporary furnishings that helps to form our unique style throughout – admire the artwork on our walls and you’ll soon get the picture.

You’re almost there – pick a room, book a table and come on in, we look forward to welcoming you.


Our rooms are lovely, all 21 one of them. We don’t have a favourite; it’s hard to pick one when no two are the same, each one filled with individual style and charm.

All individually designed, every room is different, even down to the wallpaper. Imagine big beds with generous mattresses, feature fireplaces surrounded by deep and cosy armchairs and a few little luxuries we know you love, like an espresso machine, robes and indulgent Molton Brown toiletries being just one. Picture florals, checks, tweeds, hunting themed fabrics – we’ve gone classic Cotswold country style with a few contemporary twists. Our vibrant style is both homely and comfortable – we want you to relax as much as possible during your stay. Feel relaxed and revitalised, the big windows will help with that and allow you to admire a good view at the same time!

We’ve already given too much away. Come and discover more for yourself on a relaxing stay at The Bay Tree in Burford.
