    Ottoway FamilyAug 2021

  • "We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay here."

    We come to the Cotswolds regularly and Blockley really is a gem. I'd recommend the Great Western Arms to all visitors as well as The Red Lion for those who want to venture further. Mill Garden and Chipping Campden are a must for a short trip out, many thanks.

  • "We have had a lovely stay here at North End House."

    The village had a lovely atmosphere and we were fascinated to find out that Father Brown was filmed here. Pleasant outing to Bourton-on-the-Water, Cotswold Lavender and Hidcote Manor. The village shop provided for all our needs. Thank you.

  • "What a wonderful home in a beautiful part of the Cotswolds!"

    We had an incredibly comfortable stay and North End House is a perfect base for further exploration. We had two great meals at The Great Western Arms just down the road – anyone reading this must try it! I sincerely hope that any future stays are just as good as this one! Thanks!

    The stylish furniture and decorations fit perfectly with this old, traditional house! And we have enjoyed experimenting with the various gadgets dotted around the house. Weather has been lovely and so we have been able to make good use of the garden furniture. Would love to come back again!

    Finnigan FamilyApr 2021

  • "Fantastic stay at North End House."

    Warm, cosy and comfortable; just what we needed to unwind and relax. Especially useful to have a washing machine and dryer given the many muddy walks we enjoyed. Would recommend the food at The Great Western Arms, great pies! We will be back, thank you

    Vigar FamilyDec 2020

  • "We have had a lovely time here at North End House."

    Very comfortable & cosy and a welcome break considering we weren’t sure what we would really get here due to the covid changes! Weather variable and at times very wet and even snow! A very pretty area with some lovely walks. Thank you.

    The Morgan FamilyDec 2020

  • "Stunning house in a stunning and very convenient location."

    This is our second visit to Blockley and we will be back again. Great Western Arms, Ebrington Arms and the Churchill pub in Paxford all great recommendations for food. A well presented and lovely decorated home. Loved it!

    Barclay-Styles FamilyOct 2020

The property

This wonderfully presented, three-storey holiday home, North End House, is nestled in the heart of the peaceful village of Blockley.

The property has an abundance of stunning character features thanks to its late Georgian design and dates back to 1865, where it was one used as a regular meeting house for the village’s silk mill workers who lived in the terraced cottages further up the road.

The dwelling provides the perfect getaway for a gathering of friends or family who are looking for a luxurious base from which to explore the Cotswolds.

Be welcomed onto the property by three off-road parking spaces, before unloading your luggage through the ornate cast iron porch and into the bright and airy entrance hall, which gives access to the spacious reception room to your right, where you can relax with your loved ones on the four-seater or two-seater sofa’s and listen to your favourite songs through the Bluetooth speaker as the gentle glow from the electric stove-effect fire that sits within the beautiful marble mantlepiece sets a warming tone to the room and keeps you toasty on a cold evening.

Further down the hall is the homely sitting room containing a three-seater sofa and mid-century high back wing armchair for you and your loved ones to sink into after a long day of exploring the Cotswolds, whilst catching up on your favourite show on the Smart TV.

Completing this side of the ground-floor is a handy utility space with an adjoining cloakroom.

The budding chef of the group will be delighted with the stunning farmhouse style kitchen that contains everything required to cook up a delicious, heart-warming meal, to be enjoyed gathered around the dining table surrounded by stunning features such as exposed Cotswold stone chimney breast, cherub chandelier and Edwardian antique chapel dining chairs, as well as a Cotswold stone fireplace housing an ornamental stove.

When the night draws to a close, make your way up the staircase which splits two ways; through a privacy curtain to your left, you will discover the pleasing king-size bedroom, complete with ample hanging space that sits adjacent to the stylish bathroom and further up the stairs, you will pass the study which is a peaceful room, perfect for relaxing with a compelling novel sat at the plush velvet sofa, overlooking the garden, and the super-king-size room that houses a unique four-poster bed, and has a cleverly designed dressing room with ample storage space and an en-suite shower room with a large walk-in rain shower.

A further staircase leads up the second-floor, where the king-size and twin rooms are located, both beautifully decorated, and share their floor with a shower room in the centre.

In the morning, treat you and your guests to an awakening beverage using the filter coffee machine, to be enjoyed outside in the picture-perfect south-facing garden, surrounded by a large lawn area bordered by leafy shrubs, low hedges and mature trees, and a large patio with two seating areas; one with an inviting lounge area with two large three-seater sofas and the other with an outdoor table with seating for eight.

Be sure to make use of the charcoal barbecue and dine alfresco in the warm summer months.

When you’re ready to head out for the day, start in 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 North End House, 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 a holiday you and your loved ones will cherish forever, stay at North End 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.
