  • "Great cottage."

    Good value for money. Key for us were location, ability for 6 people to stay, cleanliness and possible for one person partially disabled. All were met. For large groups staying there would need to consider that there’s one bathroom, no dishwasher. For disabled people the staircase is quite steep but possible with care. We were fine with these. Location is great to explore.

    Thank you for your feedback with regards to your stay at Green Pump Cottage. It's lovely to hear how the cottage had everything that you needed to enjoy your stay. We would love to welcome you back again in the future. Kind regards Manor Cottages. Property Owner

  • "Cottage very nice and cosy, but no welcome letter, no bottle of water or flowers."

    Just a small welcome is always very appreciated can also be a personal letter. Wifi was not working perfect, coming and going. Just 2 toilets rolls for 9 days for 4 persons. The first night we found an insect in one of the beds. Ikea cheapest cutlery all different ones and also the plates No frying pan for eggs and bacon. Kitchen Cupboards hydraulic need to be changed as the door does not remain open. Noise coming form the roof the last floor, as there would be mouses running around, very disturbing.

We would like to thank you once again for providing us with feedback on your stay and bringing these issues to our attention. Best wishes, Character Cottages. Property Owner

  • "Loved our 5 nights in the Green Pump Cottage over Christmas."

    I was really pleased with the Christmas decorations.We had worried that it wouldn’t be Christmassy but it was! Beds & bedding really comfortable. Small criticism would be that on one windy night the draft from the front door was crazy, perhaps a door curtain would help? Also the Apple control for TV was very slow & sticky perhaps a replacement would help. Loved the village shop & breakfast at the cafe was superb. Also dinner at The Great Western Arms on Christmas Eve was a great night. Overall we had a fab time in a beautiful part of the UK. Would highly recommend…. Thank you

    Thank you for your lovely feedback! It's fantastic to hear that you enjoyed your stay at had a lovely Christmas at Green Pump Cottage. We have taken note of your suggestions for improvement and hope to welcome you again in the future. Best wishes, Character Cottages. Property Owner

  • "We love Blockley and The Cotswolds."

    Unfortunately this cottage wasn’t up to scratch and a poor comparison to everywhere else we have stayed. Whilst the cottage was tired, worn out and in need of decoration, the main issue was basic cleanliness. Our first job on arrival was to clean, including picking up half eaten toast from the floor. As well as poor basic cleaning, there is general deep cleaning required. For example, the plastic at the bottom of the shower door was dark brown with dirt. There were many examples like this that would be unacceptable to anyone in their own home. So to be frank, we were insulted and angry that we had paid a 4 star price with such a lazy disregard to our experience with the basics. There were also a few other snags, such as the Wi-Fi not working properly that we weren’t alerted to. Overall, a great location in what should be a lovely cottage. But our advice to to go elsewhere, where the guest experience is considered rather than insulted.

    Thank you for your feedback and we are sorry to hear that the property was not up to our usual standards for which we apologise and will take issue with our housekeeping team. Had we been alerted to this during your stay we could of had our housekeeping team return to the property to rectify these issues for you. With best wishes Character Cottages Property Owner

    We stayed here 2 weeks with my four children/ teen-agers. We had troubles with the wastes instruction. We had to call sykes twice to have our rubish get away ( after 10 days ). The cottage est very quite and charming, and there are lots of birds in the garden, I love them.

    Thank you for your feedback with regard to Green Pump Cottage, apologies for the difficulties you had with the instructions regarding the waste, we will ensure that this is made clearer. With best wishes Character Cottages Property Owner

  • "Location was excellent."

    Lovely village. Excellent shop and cafe. Very well located. The house was fine. It had everything we needed but all a little tired. Needs new pans. Urgently needs the seal on the shower screen replacing. Very yellowed and old. A couple of rattan garden chairs would have been appreciated. Tiny metal chairs were not pleasant. Good wifi connection. Generally a very enjoyable holiday

    Blockley was a lovely little village with a great pub - The Great Western Arms. The cottage was in a great location which allowed us to be able to explore some of the other pretty villages and towns in the vicinity. I would definitely recommend staying here, it was lovely and clean, decorated tastefully and in keeping with the character of the cottage.

Nestled in the charming village of Blockley, sits this stylish three-bedroom property, Green Pump Cottage; the perfect rural retreat for a family or group of friends surrounded by lovely English countryside.

Be welcomed into the bright and open living/dining room, which provides a tranquil space for you and your loved ones to curl up on the inviting sofas whilst watching a film, surrounded by original features such as Cotswold stone flooring and an open fire with slabbed hearth and wooden surround, which keeps the whole room toasty.

A unique Cotswold stone wall with a viewing window sits adjacent to two steps which lead you into the kitchen, where you can cook delicious meals using the contemporary facilities, before dining around the wooden table or enjoy your meal alfresco style in the lovely patio area in the garden which sits next to the green water pump – where the property gets its name!

- with a charcoal barbecue available to make use of on warmer days.

When night falls, delight in a relaxing soak amongst the bubbles in the bath before heading to one of the three well-presented and welcoming bedrooms; a double on the first-floor and a double and single on the second-floor.

Green Pump Cottage is situated in the peaceful village of Blockley, a picturesque village with 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 footpaths to the nearby market towns of Chipping Campden and Moreton-in-Marsh; in Chipping Campden you can start your day with a delicious breakfast at Campden Coffee Co before heading over to Dover’s Hill to enjoy the stunning views over the Vale of Evesham where you can join the Cotswold Way, which is a 100-mile walking trail, taking you through picturesque villages, breath-taking countryside and famous ancient sites and finish off your day with a heart-warming meal at The Swan in Broadway – the second stop on Cotswold Way!

Make your way over 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.

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.
