Eynsham Hall

While visiting friends in Witney, Oxfordshire we stayed at the magnificent Eynsham Hall, which is one of the great country houses in Oxfordshire. The house and grounds offer the perfect retreat in the beautiful Cotswold’s coutryside.

Eynsham Hall –  “In the 1700s a wealthy gent enclosed 3,000 acres of Oxfordshire to create the ultimate space in which to entertain guests.”

 

Burford

Burford is a small medieval town situated in Oxfordshire, England, 20miles west of Oxford. It is considered to be the southern gateway to the Cotswolds.Since my first visit to Burford back in 2003 it has become one of my favorite places in England and will always hold a special place in my heart. Burford for me is so full of inspiration and tranquility. The ideal place to get away from everything, the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Soak in the history and countryside of such a beautiful little town.I have taken many photos of this beautiful Cotswold town on my various visits and written several posts with photos that I have taken.These recent photographs were taken back in July this year when visiting my best friend to celebrate their youngest sons Christening.

Normally when I take photos in Burford they tend to focus round Burford Church and its graveyard. I know that sounds grim. So this time I decided to focus on the high street.Though I did venture down Sheep Street, which I admit I normally pass by. The beautiful building continue along this quaint Cotswold street. Aptly named as it medieval times it was used for taking sheep to market. It is nice to see a place where some of the old buildings still reside intact.

Already looking forward to my next visit.

Burford Sunset

On a recent trip down to the Cotswold town of Burford in Oxfordshire to see some friends. I had the chance to capture some of the amazing scenery that I love so much.RuralPrint017It is a remarkable part of the English countryside, with rolling hills which enclose small towns with beautiful and quaint architecture.

I may be Scottish but there is a part of my heart that will always be captivated by the Cotswolds.

Final Resting Place

One of my favourite places in Burford is the courtyard of the Church of St John the Baptist. Situated at the edge of town next to the River Windrush, where the gentle sound of the river makes the churchyard even more relaxing. It’s the perfect spot to getaway from it all for a moment of contemplation and take in the beauty of the surrounding Cotswold countryside.
