    It was beautiful, spacious and warm. The kitchen was well stocked with proper equipment for cooking which was a big plus.

  • "We had such a great time staying here, it was everything we wanted."

    We were able to chill at the house and also great location to go for long walks and runs, walking distance from pubs and a cafe, it was ideal. There is also a local village shop which is perfect to get essentials. The house lay out was great for us, it was nice to be able to all eat together inside and outside. Very clean and tidy. I would definitely recommend staying here, it was lovely.

    ElizabethJun 2019

  • "A gorgeous cottage in beautiful Blockley."

    Five of us (four adults and a 4 month old) really enjoyed how well equipped it was - the hosts have thought of everything! It is even prettier than the photos. Though it’s a narrow property, it never felt cramped and we loved the garden. Close to pubs and the village shop, it’s ideal for a restful break.

  • "We enjoyed Knoll Cottage and the charming village of Blockley."

    The countryside is glorious. We made visits to several towns and gardens and found the tea shops hard to resist. It was especially good having exchanged snow banks in Canada for banks of daffodils in the Cotswolds. All the poems we learned at school in the UK came to mind as we drove around.

    JohnApr 2019

  • "Such a lovely comfortable and cosy cottage."

    Everything you need is available and we got a lovely bottle of wine in the fridge when we arrived!

    ElisabethMar 2019

  • "Lovely Cotswold cottage, in a beautiful village."

    Perfectly placed to visit all the famous Cotswold attractions.

    JamesMar 2019

  • "We enjoyed 3 very comfortable nights at Knoll Cottage."

    Very stylishly decorated cottage, with lots of homely touches. Lovely quiet location in the pretty village of Blockley! Good communication before arrival. Would recommend for a cosy country getaway!

    KathrynJan 2019

  • "Very well appointed, comfortable, clean and cosy cottage."

    We really enjoyed our stay there.

    AnnetteNov 2018

  • "Wonderful cottage in a very convenient location near to Moreton-in-Marsh and Broadway."

    Would definitely visit again. Cottage v modern with Netflix and all mod cons so much so I would have liked to live there and not have to leave!

    SallyNov 2018

  • "A truly stunning property with everything you need for the perfect getaway, beautiful surroundings and only a short drive from some of the larger towns, sitting directly opposite the 1 hotel in the village and a short walk from the village shop it's location is perfect !"

    The house is full of pretty much anything you can need and very comfortable throughout ... would definitely return!

    RachelNov 2018

  • "The accommodation was immaculately clean, a real delight for a short stay in between journeys, a good base to explore the Cotswolds and beyond, well equipped and a pleasure to stay in what felt like a home away from home."

    NeilMay 2018

  • "Fantastic cottage!"

    Lovely spaces, very clean and comfortable. Watch your head if you are tall, the fourth floor bedroom has some low beams as does the kitchen, but very manageable. Loved staying in the Knoll Cottage!

    MeganMar 2018

  • "The Knoll Cottage was idyllic."

    Beautifully styled with a tasteful mix of old and new. Just what we were hoping for. A great bolt hole for any Cotswold adventure. Thank you very much.

About the location


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.

Region Information

Note: Blockley is in a valley and guests should be aware that mobile phone reception can be poor. Note: Regrettably, due to the steepness and open access to the stairs, Knoll Cottage does not accept children under the age of five, though babes-in-arms are accepted. Note: Bedroom 2, on the top floor of the cottage, has no doorway and the bedroom opens directly onto the steep staircase down to the first floor; this room is therefore unlikely to be suitable for young children.
