  • "The cottage was very nice only small issues were upstairs shower lacked pressure and downstairs bathroom sink leaks into the cupboard below."

    The dishwasher was not big enough for the plates provided and sometimes did not clean effectively but this was no big issue. Please do not take this as a gripe merely minor points to note. Otherwise lovely cottage with nice decor and well equipped.

The property

A stone-built dwelling, nestling within a series of former barns in the delightful village of Blockley.

After driving down a secluded, private drive you will be greeted to this character property, offering spacious accommodation for a family gathering, or group of friends, to the Cotswolds.

The interior of the property offers a welcoming charm and a number of traditional features to quietly reflect the history of the building.

After a busy day exploring, you will find a well-equipped open-plan kitchen / living / dining room, containing all the necessities you will need throughout your stay, including a dishwasher, electric oven and hob, and a utility room housing the washing machine.

Lounge during a winter’s evening within the sitting room, where sumptuous sofas await your presence.

The ground floor is also home to one of the two stunning family bathrooms, where you can take a long soak in the tub, or have a quick invigorating shower.

Follow the staircase up, where you will find three well-appointed bedrooms, comprising of two double bedrooms and a twin bedroom, perfect for hosting up to six guests.

Continuing to impress is the elegantly-presented second family bathroom, where again you have the choice of a bath or a shower.

To the rear of the property you will be able to soak up the sun within the garden’s private patio - an ideal spot for your morning coffe, or an evening glass of wine.

Within a 5-minute walk, you will find an excellent village shop and café, and if you can't face cooking then why not sample the fayre on offer in the nearby pubs.

To keep you busy whilst staying here, you will find Mill Dene Gardens close by, which is known as one of the most interesting gardens within the Cotswolds, where you can take a leisurely stroll whilst catching a glimpse of the trout, kingfishers and ducks.

Alternatively, you can visit the National Trust property of Snowshill Manor, which is a beautiful 16th-century house with an outstanding garden.

Badger's Den is a perfect bolthole for a family holiday to the Cotswolds.

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.
