“No visit to the Cotswolds is complete without taking in the beautiful town of Burford, just six miles from The Wilde, with it's jaw droppingly impressive architecture, quaint tearooms, and wonderful independent shops and bookstores. The Lamb is a particular favourite for either lunch or dinner, either in the bar area or the more formal dining room.”
