Burford Lodge was built c1814, most probably as an elegant country residence for a local businessman, and was the first property to be built alongside what was then a new road. By 1844, it was The Bird’s Nest public house, and, in 1864 became The Oxford. Soon afterwards, called Oxford House, it was the private residence of Thomas Henry Reynolds who wrote hymns, edited a hymn book, and was financially involved in the Burford brewery and a number of local utilities. He renamed the house High View, and this name remained when, c1930, it was once more converted to trade as The High View Private Hotel. Later, the liberally-minded Sharpe family, conservationists, musicians and naturists, operated The High View as a bed and breakfast establishment with a caravan site attached. Their business continued until the 1960s, after which it was known for a while as The Winter’s Tale. Since then, the building has been one of the properties in the estate of a national brewery. The business was bought in 2004 by Graham and Paula Cox.
