    “Badgers Den is set in a lovely quiet location, not far from a stream.”

    The holiday let was comfortable for 6 people, but the lounge has two, two seater sofa's which wouldn't be comfortable for 3 people squeezing onto each one, so we spent the evenings at the dining table. The overall appearance of the place was clean but there was a lot of cobwebs around the place both in high and low places, we relocated quite a few spiders whilst there. There was a beautiful coffee table that had strict instruction that anything put on it should have a coaster or something in ...

    The holiday let was comfortable for 6 people, but the lounge has two, two seater sofa's which wouldn't be comfortable for 3 people squeezing onto each one, so we spent the evenings at the dining table. The overall appearance of the place was clean but there was a lot of cobwebs around the place both in high and low places, we relocated quite a few spiders whilst there. There was a beautiful coffee table that had strict instruction that anything put on it should have a coaster or something in place before placing anything on it, so it made us wonder why they went to the trouble of putting it in a holiday let. We were a bit surprised to see the upstairs bathroom had some glass panelling, but fortunately there was a blind on the door, which we pulled down for our stay. There was a distinct lack of sockets for modern electrical services, although there were some in place that had been closed off. We enjoyed our stay and would seriously think of going back for another holiday some time. But it wouldn't be more than four people next time. Blockley Village is lovely and the shop stocked with good selection, we would recommend the Great Western Arms for eating and drinking, the staff are friendly and the pub spacious.

The property

Badger's Den is a friendly and attractive holiday retreat with a private feel that enjoys a location in the Cotswolds that many feel is one of the best there is - Blockley!

Set within a secluded area of the village, down a private drive the holiday property was created some time ago from what were once a series of barns.

Today, manicured gardens surround the buildings, which have names all related to the local "visitors" (Badgers, Moles, Otters you name it!) The barn is about 1 min walk from the famous Mill Dene Gardens, which are an absolute must-visit and that aside, you have the excellent village shop and cafe and a couple of pubs to sample too.

Inside, the property is comfortably furnished, warm and welcoming and very well equipped for up to six people there are three good sized bedrooms and two bathrooms too.

The private patio area to the rear is a real sun trap all year round and the perfect spot for a bit of warmth and the chance to enjoy the real peace of this location.

A little piece of Cotswolds heaven!

MORETON-IN-MARSH

Stow-on-the-Wold 4.5 miles; Bourton-on-the-Water 8 miles; Stratford-upon-Avon 16 miles; Cheltenham 23 miles; Oxford 31 miles.

The Saxon market town of Moreton-in-Marsh lies on the Fosse Way Roman Road in the northern Cotswolds and boasts many elegant 18th century buildings, which are home to traditional inns, serving real ales and home-cooked food, tea rooms, restaurants and individual shops to suit all tastes.

It also boasts it's 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.

Many walks and cycle rides through the beautiful rolling countryside of the Cotswolds can be enjoyed from the centre of the town, with the Macmillan Way, Heart of England Way, Gloucestershire and Monarch's Way all running close by.

Less than five miles away is Stow-on-the-Wold, 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 is known as the Venice of the Cotswolds as the River Windrush runs through the centre.

It lies in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is one of the most popular Cotswold villages.
