  • "We had a great week."

    Love Alice Cottage, just right for 3. Must try the local café, it had amazing food, they do fine dining evenings, wonderful. Also Childswickham Inn, , The Great Western Arms(also in Blockley). In fact Blockley is a great place as a base for visiting surrounding area.

  • "We had a great time."

    SallyNov 2019

  • "Lovely cottage - perfect for our family of 3!"

    !

    JohnNov 2019

  • "Alice Cottage is really beautiful, tastefully furnished and clean."

    Comfortable veranda at the entrance, ideal for taking off wet jackets and shoes before entering the house. Large and well equipped kitchen. Only the dishwasher is missing, otherwise there is really everything, even a very useful washer / dryer. The bathroom, located on the upper floor, is small but functional. The large and tastefully furnished double bedroom. That single little one but pretty. The strength of the cottage is undoubtedly the small corner living room with fireplace. Especially when it is raining and cold outside, being able to relax in front of the fireplace, is really a unique and priceless experience (wood is necessary to light the fire provided by the property). Convenient private parking in front of the entrance. Excellent location. The picturesque village of Blockley is the ideal starting point to visit the Cotswolds. Simply perfect for those who want a relaxing holiday in the heart of the English countryside. Finally, I point out the seriousness of the agency that manages the property. Really very kind and helpful. If we were to return to the Cotswolds in the future, we would have no doubt, we would definitely go back to the Alice Cottage. Highly recommended!

    MonicaOct 2019

  • "A small lovely cottage with a pretty little garden at the front in a beautiful village, very peaceful, just what you need for a short holiday."

    A lovely cottage, with a lovely sunny front garden and everything you could possible need.

Lots of great walks and gardens nearby.

The property

Alice Cottage is a beautiful Cotswold stone cottage which dates back to the 19th century and has been lovingly refurbished, whilst retaining its traditional character and is the perfect property for a couple or a small family who are seeking a relaxing break surrounded by the beautiful Cotswold countryside.

The pretty garden terrace leads you up to the front door which opens into the quaint sunroom, overlooking the south-facing garden and perfect for enjoying the garden, whatever the weather!

Step into the delightful open-plan living space, well-presented with a two-seater sofa to unwind on after a day of exploring the Cotswolds, as you get some evening entertainment courtesy of the HD TV, as the woodburning stove creates a gentle glow and a warming atmosphere in the room.

Cook delicious meals in the well-equipped kitchen whilst listening to your favourite songs on the iPod docking station, before gathering with your guests at the fold-away dining table.

Catch the last of the afternoon sun in the pretty courtyard south-facing garden, or make use of the charcoal barbecue in warmer months.

When night falls, make your way up to the first-floor and tuck your child into the single bed before heading to the master room to listen to some calming music through the iPod docking station before laying your head for the night in the double bed; both rooms with ample storage and hanging space.

Wake up with an invigorating rinse in the walk-in shower before getting ready to head out for the day; into the picturesque village of Blockley which has a country pub, The Great Western Arms, a historic Norman church, Church of St Peter and St Paul, and the popular community owned shop and café which serves delicious food during the day and hosts a couple of dinner evenings too.

Surrounded by wonderful countryside, there are many walks and cycle routes on Blockley’s doorstep including Heart of England Way long distance path which links the market towns of Chipping Campden and Moreton-in-Marsh, where you can visit Hidcote Manor Garden in Chipping Campden, which is a renowned attraction, that looks like a scene from Alice in Wonderland and is one of the UK’s best displays of the Art and Craft Movement gardens and visit Chastleton House in Moreton-in-Marsh, which is a stunning Jacobean Grade I listed building that has remained unchanged for 400 years, with room guides will be able to show you around the property and grounds.

At Alice Cottage, you are close to the bustling market town of Stow-on-the-Wold where you can take a walk around the market square, which is the heart of the community and offers boutique shops, tea rooms, pubs and restaurants, as well as the Farmers’ Market which occurs every second Thursday of each month, featuring inviting local produce.

A fabulous stay is waiting to be had at Alice Cottage!

About the location

BLOCKLEY

Moreton-in-Marsh 3 miles; Bourton-on-the-Water 11 miles; Cheltenham 22 miles.

An ancient village once famous for its silk and corn mills, Blockley lies just 3 miles from Moreton-in-Marsh and features a unique collection of honey-coloured buildings with a pretty village green, two excellent pubs, serving hearty food and real ale, as well as a village store and café, serving dinner on a Friday night. Many walks and cycle rides through the beautiful rolling countryside of the Cotswolds can be enjoyed from the centre of the village, with the Macmillan Way, Heart of England Way and the Gloucestershire and Monarch's Way all running close by. Very close by, Moreton-in-Marsh boasts many elegant 18th century buildings and is home to traditional inns, tea rooms, restaurants and individual shops to suit all tastes. It also offers its own train station and lies on the intersection of the Paddington rail line from London. The town hosts the Moreton-In-Marsh Show, one of the UK's largest one-day agricultural shows, as well as the Moreton Beer Festival, an annual French Market, and a large outdoor market every Tuesday. The highest town in the Cotswolds, this ancient market town has played host to many fairs since the 12th century and today holds a biannual Gypsy Horse Fair, craft fairs and monthly farmers' market. Close by is Bourton-on-the-Water, which lies in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is known as the Venice of the Cotswolds as the River Windrush runs through the centre. Also within reach is the spa town of Cheltenham, boasting an incredible range of shops, cinemas, theatres, restaurants and pubs, as well as being famous for its horseracing festival in March, culminating in the Gold Cup steeplechase. Oxford, Stratford-upon-Avon, Bath, Worcester and the waterfront city of Gloucester are also within driving distance, making Blockley a great base for a Cotswolds holiday.
