  • "Attractive, comfortable typical Cotswolds cottage."

    Snug & ideal for a couple. Fantastic views over rural setting.Great location on village edge with lovely country walks right on the doorstep. Easy walk into beautiful Blockley with fab cafe and shop. There are 2 pubs but due to covid-19 restrictions we didn’t visit. Easy driving to all Cotswolds attractions. A perfect base for a short or long break.

  • "Amazing little place to stay."

    Smack bang in the middle of all the places we wanted to visit. Also, the little village is a hidden gem with beautiful surroundings and a lovely pub. We had a great meal at the pub which was inexpensive. It is literally 20-40 min drive from places of interest. Broadway is 9 minutes away and is absolutely stunning. The cottage itself is incredible. It has great character and is homely and inviting. The views are stunning! There were even a herd of deer in the field out the back. We will be going back for sure. Only one pointer that may be of some use, maybe the checking in time could be a little earlier especially in winter/autumn months. Although the owner did manage to get us in an hour earlier at 4pm, at 5pm (which is the official check-in time) it was pitch black outside. This is only a suggestion and I cannot stress enough how much you should book this cottage. It is incredible and we had a great stay. Thank you.

  • "Stayed here for the weekend."

    Lovely cottage, perfect for 3/4 people. Great location for country walks and local towns. Very hard wearing carpet in the main lounge area, would recommend slippers. However other than that a great place to stay. Highly recommend.

    DanielleSep 2020

  • "Blockley is everything you hope for in a Cotswold Village and the cottage was beautiful, super clean and with views that are very picture worthy!"

    Great for dogs too with wonderful walks from the doorstep. Can’t wait to come back and share with friends.

    LaurenJun 2020

  • "The view from the cottage was beautiful with lots of deer and beautiful sun rises."

    It was very clean and cosy as well as being perfect for accessing some great walks in the Cotswolds.

    LucyJan 2020

  • "We enjoyed our short stay in your cosy cottage."

    It was lovely to come home to after some long walks and a sweet little village. The Blockley Walk book was really useful and we enjoyed a tasty take away delivered from Moreton on the Marsh. The views and sun rises/deer have been spectacular. Thank you.

  • "Wonderful week spending Christmas in Honeysuckle Cottage."

    Lovely views and walks not far from the door. Very well furnished cottage. Cafe and shop in the village, was great, and we enjoyed a few good meals at Bakers Arms, Broadway and Chipping Campden. Blockley is a lovely village to stroll around. We hope to return.

  • "Amazing cottage, so cosy."

    Maggie and the owners, all very helpful. We really couldn't have asked for a better stay. Thank you.

    Katie And Owen, Essex And BreconNov 2019

  • "Thank you for a lovely stay!"

    We loved the cottage and had a great time in The Cotswolds. We really enjoyed The Cotswolds Wildlife Park, and having Blockley Village Shop so close by was a lifesaver!

    Meriel, Gretel And ThustonSep 2019

  • "A very cosy and idyllic cottage on the corner of Blockley village."

    The road is as tranquil as the cottage itself, with gorgeous views and the calming silence the sweeping hills behind it give. The hosts provide a very detailed and thought out guide to your stay. Inside is clean and bright, with the feeling of a home as opposed to an empty dwelling. Thank you!

    GeorginaJul 2019

  • "Honeysuckle Cottage was a wonderful space to spend the long weekend at."

    We had a magical weekend! Only wish we had stars longer. The organisation once you book makes arriving and accessing the house super easy! The house is spacious with lovely features. The view is breath taking. The village is cute and surrounding walks wonderful. It’s really all you need for a cosy time in the country! Highest recommendation!

    GelskeJul 2019

  • "We had a lovely week at Honeysuckle Cottage in the Cotswolds and Blockley is very tranquil."

    The lady next door is friendly and the location proved an excellent base to explore further afield. Highlights included Hufkins at Stow on the Wold, Stratford Upon Avon, Great Western Arms for a pint and a bite, deer’s in the field at the end of the road and the lovely garden where we spent many an hour relaxing, particularly as the weather has been fantastic. So we spent most days out exploring, Bananagram is a new discovery we will be getting ourselves.

  • "We had a lovely weekend stay in the Cotswolds."

    The property is in a great location in Blockley with street parking right outside the main door. The cottage is very cute with a pretty back patio and stunning views of the countryside

  • "Lovely cottage Friendly locals."

    Great place to explore. The village cafe is very good and the Great Western pub is worth a visit.

    Alina And RichardJun 2019

  • "This was a wonderful place to escape to for a few days."

    The view was amazing, and it was great to be able to walk down to the local shop to pick up necessities to cook for myself while traveling without a car. Depending on the bus did get a little tricky at times, but It was great to explore the countryside on foot. Every trail was its own adventure. The cottage had everything I needed and was quite comfortable. I would definitely love to come back someday given the chance.

    SamMay 2019

  • "Honeysuckle Cottage: coming in and feeling at home at once!"

    So cosy and comfortable. And the Cotswolds are a bit like a fairy tale land, everything so lovely and beautiful. Such a lot to see and to do. We had a wonderful week! Wonderful time, loved hiking and exploring the area.

    JuneauMay 2019

  • "The booking and pre-trip information service from Character Cottages was superb, best we have ever come across."

    The cottage is a lovely blend of characterful features with modern comforts. The view from the back of the house is lovely and we enjoyed breakfast on the patio most mornings. Easy parking on the road outside. The caretaker and owners were very helpful. Great walks in all directions and beautiful local villages. A real community feel in Blockley. We would recommend both the company and the cottage to anyone.

    ChristineApr 2019

  • "We had a lovely stay at Honeysuckle Cottage."

    What lovely views! We love the Cotswolds. We went to The Cotswold Wildlife Park, it was a highlight the kids loved it, we could even take our dog! The villages were beautiful and we had some great walks. We went to Chipping Campden and I liked it there. We went to the Zoo and saw a Rhino.

    LauraMar 2019

  • "We have love the cottage."

    It has a lovely downstairs, a comfy middle floor and an amazing upstairs. The view is fantastic and the neighbours are friendly. The garden is nice, and the area is nice and quiet. The food in the cafe and the pub tasted fantastic. We will be glad to stay here again. The Cotswolds are amazing. We loved our stay.

    CharlotteMar 2019

  • "We have loved Blockley for many years, it is the best village in the Cotswolds."

    So unspoilt. Look out for 'Cockney Stan' in the village - a real character. Our Jack Russell almost made friends with Holly the JRT next door. Fabulous weather completed our stay. If it's your first time in the Cotswolds you are in for a real treat. If you have been before, you will know that!

  • "The views are spectacular and the peace and quiet lovely/ The deer was a surprise and an added bonus."

    All amenities to hand in the cottage. The milk and chocolate cake which were left in the fridge were a very thoughtful touch and were much appreciated. The whole family enjoyed the Duck Race which highlighted Blockley's community spirit. Especially as we won two races. We love the Cotswolds, Blockley and love the cottage.

    Country walks from the door and a short walk to the pub. What more you ask? Excellent base for exploring the rest of the Cotswolds. Chipping Campden recommend for tea shops and general mooching in an iconic Cotswolds village.

The property

Built from beautiful golden stone, Honeysuckle Cottage is a classic Cotswold cottage, resting on a quiet street in the historic village of Blockley.

The property is the ideal country break for a small family or two couples, seeking a relaxing getaway.

Be welcomed into the bright and characterful sitting room where you can look forward to sinking into the inviting sofas and watching your favourite show, whilst the woodburning stove is crackling away in the background, keeping you warm and toasty.

You will find the refurbished bathroom located at the back of the cottage, with fabulous views over Blockley Valley, which contains a roll top bath with a rainfall shower over.

The lower ground-floor is home to the well-presented kitchen and dining room, where the budding chef of the group will be delighted with the contemporary appliances and selection of cookery books, to help with rustling up a heart-warming meal, to be enjoyed in the delightful dining room surrounded by exposed wooden beams, and flagstone flooring, where you can store your wine in the handy wine rack, as well as store your boots in the boot cupboard.

When the night draws to a close, make your way up to the first-floor where you will find two king-size rooms, one of which can be changed to a twin room on request making it perfect for a family with children.

In the morning, enjoy your coffee in the enclosed, decked garden area, which is bordered on either side by mature plants, which leads to a lovely seating area at the end of the garden, with stunning uninterrupted views of the surrounding countryside.

Be sure to make use of the charcoal barbecue when the weather allows!

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 Honeysuckle Cottage, 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 wonderful stay in the Cotswolds, choose Honeysuckle Cottage as your base.

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.
