The property

Settled on the outskirts of the picture-perfect village of Blockley, rests this charming Cotswold-stone holiday home, The Court House.

Set across four floors and enjoying a peaceful setting within the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with the tranquil waters of Blockley Brook flowing freely nearby, The Court House makes an idyllic base for a holiday in Gloucestershire.

Park up in either of your two off-road parking spaces before unloading your bags and making your way over the threshold of the vibrant blue doorway into your new home-from-home to begin your staycation.

Entering into the well-equipped kitchen, be charmed by the effortless blend of contemporary and traditional décor, with high-quality fixtures and fittings and a warming woodburning stove nestled within a whitewashed brick fireplace, providing a truly lovely spot to rustle up heart-warming meals throughout your stay.

Indulge in a romantic meal for two at the elegant breakfast bar or uncork a bottle of wine and serve the fruits of your labour at the table positioned in the nearby open-plan living/dining room, sure to be the social hub of the home.

Following a day of adventure, gather with your loved ones with a sumptuous seat in front of the television, where a timeless Victorian-era feature fireplace and rustic wooden window shutters create a snug and homely atmosphere for a cosy night in.

In the summer months, carry the conversation outdoors with a sociable seat amongst the lush greenery of the enclosed garden, where you can toast a glass of fizz to an unforgettable experience, backed by the peaceful sound of the babbling brook.

When day draws to night, retreat indoors to prepare for bed with an indulgent soak amongst the bubbles in either of the two classically designed family bathrooms, or make use of the spacious walk-in shower positioned on the first floor for a quick rinse.

When sleep calls, you're spoilt for choice between five beautifully appointed king-size bedrooms which all benefit from a 'Emma Hybrid Mattress'.

A king-size and an en-suite shower tucked away on the lower ground floor, two further king-size settled on the first floor, and a final king-size along with a zip/link twin bedroom positioned on the second floor, each beautifully adorned with a unique colouring.

Take a break from doing the cooking and venture into the heart of Blockley where you'll find a traditional local pub, The Great Western Arms, serving delicious homecooked meals in a delightful quintessentially British setting, or fuel your excursions with a hearty breakfast with a visit to Blockley Café.

Escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life with a stroll through the tranquil grounds of Mill Dene Garden, set around an original Cotswold watermill, with a peaceful stream, millpond, vibrant fruit garden and rose walk providing an idyllic backdrop.

Visit the nearby market town of Moreton-in-Marsh, where you can discover a wealth of fascinating RAF memorabilia with a tour of Wellington Aviation Museum, or marvel at the fabulous workings of art on display at The Moreton Gallery.

Jump in the car and journey to the picture-perfect town of Chipping Campden, where you can treat yourself to a spot of luxury with a treatment at Cotswold House Spa, immerse yourself in local history with a visit to the Court Barn Museum, or embark on a two-footed adventure along the Cotswold Way.

With all of this and more, choose The Court House as a base from which to explore the delights of Gloucestershire.

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.
