The property

No.4 The Old Coach House is a stylish ground floor apartment, set in a 19th century former coach house.

The Grade ll listed Cotswold stone property is located in the picturesque village of Blockley and offers the perfect base for a romantic getaway or for a small family break to the North Cotswolds.

The front door opens into the impressive open-plan living space where you and your group can relax of an evening on the three-seater sofa, armchair and two occasional chairs whilst watching a film on Netflix, before rustling up a heart-warming evening meal in the well-equipped kitchen area, to be enjoyed at the wooden dining table as you toast to a wonderful holiday that lies ahead.

Take the conversation outside into the elevated patio area which houses an outdoor table set, perfect for watching the world go by in the village.

When your evening draws to a close, head to one of the beautifully presented bedrooms; the master has lovely views towards the village green, contains a double bed and benefits from an en-suite shower room and the second bedroom is accessed via a unique sliding barn door, gives direct access out to the churchyard and also contains a double bed.

In the morning, enjoy an invigorating rinse in the walk-in shower located in the contemporary shower room, before getting ready to head out for the day.

No.4 The Old Coach House 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 sits opposite the property and 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 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.

Visit the Fosse Gallery to admire an array of contemporary British art, indulge in a bite to eat and drinks at The Stag at Stow, or revel in the scrumptious tea and cakes and cream tea at The Old Bakery Tea Room.

For a memorable trip to this stunning part of the Cotswolds, stay at No.4 The Old Coach House.

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.
