The surrounding countryside is particularly beautiful with traditional Cotswold villages, rural walks, interesting churches and famous gardens.


Corner Cottage was extensively rebuilt and enlarged throughout the early 1960s and again in the mid-1980s to create a fine stone built village house. The current vendor, a time served mason, undertook the rebuilding works using extensively reclaimed materials and incorporating many mullion windows having traditional metal casement windows all under a concrete tiled roof. The property occupies a prominent corner position set behind a short mown verge with an aspect towards neighboring village houses and the Evenlode Valley.

Internally the property offers an attractive entrance hall, with oak staircase, leading to a well-proportioned sitting room with large stone fireplace and connecting through to a comfortable dining room. There is a well fitted kitchen with separate larder/pantry leading to rear lobby, utility and cloakroom. Set out across the first floor, accessed from an attractive part galleried landing, are three good sized bedrooms, the master bedroom having its own en suite bathroom, as well as a family bathroom.

Outside is an enclosed partly walled rear garden enjoying an extensively private and south easterly aspect laid principally to lawn with connecting pathways and a raised ornamental fishpond. The property benefits from extensive outbuildings with potential for other uses including a stone faced workshop, an attractive stone built tandem garage with pitched roof and attached timber store. Beyond the garage is an extra parking area and vegetable patch. Potential exists to gently modernize the property to create a comfortable and stylish family house.


From Burford High Street proceed towards Stow-on-the-Wold along the A424. After approximately three-and-a-half miles turn right opposite The Merrymouth Inn signposted Fifield.
