Located across the landing you will find the smart family bathroom, where you can have a relaxing soak amongst the bubbles before heading down to the living/dining room on the lower-ground-floor to have a wonderful evening with your loved ones, gathered on one of the two-seater sofa's whilst watching a film on the Smart TV, as the woodburning stove gently warms the room, with your four-legged friend settled in the bespoke dog's sleeping area beneath the stairs.

Take the evening outside into the enchanting sloped garden where you can watch the sunset over the neighbouring fields from the comfort of the rattan sofa and make use of the charcoal barbecue in warmer months, you may be lucky to see deer grazing in the fields nearby!

When the night draws to a close, ascend up the steep stairs where you will discover two homely bedrooms, both with stunning views and original flooring, the master housing a king-size bed and the second bedroom housing a double bed.

In the morning, enjoy a long bathe in the bath and 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 Heart of England Way long distance path which links the market towns of Chipping Campden and Moreton-in-Marsh, where you can visit Hidcote Manor Garden in Chipping Campden, which is a renowned attraction, that looks like a scene from Alice in Wonderland and is one of the UK’s best displays of the Art and Craft Movement gardens and visit Chastleton House in Moreton-in-Marsh, which is a stunning Jacobean Grade I listed building that has remained unchanged for 400 years, with room guides will be able to show you around the property and grounds.

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.
