The property

Perched on the hillside overlooking the peaceful village of Blockley, sits this contemporary, 2017 built home, Bobby Jo’s.

Boasting spacious interior and two homely bedrooms, it is the perfect retreat for a family or couples who are seeking a relaxing break surrounded by the wonderful Cotswold countryside.

Be welcomed by private parking on the drive, where you can easily unload your belongings into your home-from-home.

A step and ramp lead you up to the front door which opens into a bright and welcoming hallway with marble flooring, giving access to the two spacious and well-presented double bedrooms, both with en-suites, one containing a bath and one containing a walk-in shower.

A handy cloakroom sits adjacent to the two bedrooms, meaning there will be no more queues for the bathroom!

Meander up the six marble steps and into the smart open-plan kitchen/diner, complete with all the amenities you and your loved ones require to rustle up delicious meals and gather around the wooden dining table to crack open a bottle of bubbly and toast to a wonderful holiday that lies ahead.

Adjacent to the kitchen is a convenient utility room, where you can wash and dry your clothes just before you leave.

Relax for the evening in the warm and inviting sitting room that is flooded with natural light from the floor-to-ceiling windows beneath the Apex window, whilst watching your favourite TV show, sunk into the cane furniture suite.

On warmer evenings, make use of the delightful enclosed garden, where from the elevated position, there are breath-taking views of the surrounding countryside; the perfect setting to unwind.

Once you’ve had some well-earned rest for the night, in the morning, get 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 its doorstep including The Monarch’s Way long distance walking trail which passes through the village and can be followed either north to Chipping Campden or up and over the ridge towards Moreton-in-Marsh, skirting the fringes of Batsford Arboretum which is a 56-acre garden with trees and shrubs from around the world in the plant centre and a café.

At Bobby Jo’s, 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.

For memories that will last a lifetime, stay at Bobby Jo’s.

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.
