  • "We had the most wonderful time in your beautiful cottage."

    I want to say a special thank you for allowing us to re arrange our holiday at such short notice after we unfortunately had COVID back in October. This trip was planned as a belated 50th Birthday celebration for my Mother and it was worth the wait. The cottage was so homely with everything you could want and need, my Mum had tears in her eyes when the first thing she spotted inside the cottage was the Christmas tree - such a small but lovely touch. We had a very memorable week away and thank you again so much. Would definitely recommend and would love to come and stay again. Best Wishes Emily Sadler

  • "Lovely cottage, even had deer in the field at the bottom of the garden."

    Set in a lovely village, central to all the touristy villages. Will definitely return to Blockley. We had a great time!

  • "A very cosy house in a beautiful spot."

    The village of Blockley is very pretty and has a lovely feel. The house itself is incredibly well equipped: a full kitchen, comfy living space and board games! We lit the stove most nights downstairs too. Couldn't have asked for a nicer place to relax for a couple of weeks. Would recommend Lammas Cottage to anyone, couple or family

  • "We had a lovely few days in the Cotswolds - Lammas Cottage was cosy and well-equipped, with a beautiful view and great local walks."

    We particularly enjoyed evenings by the fire!

    HannahNov 2020

  • "Very cosy cottage in a lovely setting with beautiful views over the valley behind."

    The garden would have been a fantastic place to sit out if the weather had been better. The kitchen is well kitted out with everything you might need and the instructions and directions provided were clear and well set out. The bedrooms are a little small, particularly if you’re tall, but to be expected in a cottage, beds were very comfy.

  • "Perfect hideaway for a weekend escape to the Cotswolds."

    Wonderful house full of character perfect for the three of us. Walks right on your doorstep and a lovely cafe in the village. Would highly recommend.

  • "Lammas Cottage is full of character and comfort with efficient use of the layout."

    Views across the valley are glorious and Blockley village has a lot to offer along with lovely walks in the local hills.

  • "Beautiful home with everything you could possibly need."

    Small but very homely and clean. Beautiful walks nearby and would highly recommend the Churchill Arms pub in Paxford for food-incredible Sunday roast! And lastly the views from the back of the house are stunning! Would highly recommend for a countryside getaway.

    FaithSep 2020

  • "Beautiful and well presented cottage."

    Clean, tidy and everything you could want from a home from home. The views are stunning and the village is beautiful. I will definitely be returning!

    SandraSep 2020

  • "Cosy home with a beautiful garden and a lovely view."

    Noise does travel across the houses next door so keep that in mind if you are enjoying dinner outdoors. But within the home its quiet and peaceful. The beds are cosy and lush and rather quaint. The stairs a slightly steep between the floors so that may be a challenge for some. The house itself was clean, tidy and welcoming.

  • "A lovely cottage in a super village."

    Great walks from the cottage.

    JulietMar 2020

  • "We stayed over half term for four nights."

    The cottage was well equipped. Blockley village was beautiful with a lovely coffee shop and village pub. Would definitely recommend.

    AngelinaNov 2019

  • "What a lovely cottage."

    Was so well equipped, with such amazing views and so cosy. The kitchen had everything you could want with premium equipment such as Robert Welch and la creuset knifes and saucepans. The views from the cottage were beautiful and the location was ideal in a lovely little village. Would love to return and would highly recommend.

    CharlieNov 2019

  • "Such a beautiful cottage!"

    Small but very cosy bedrooms (with comfortable mattresses), lovely kitchen with wood burner, and a beautiful lounge with excellent views. Everything you need!

    AmySep 2019

  • "Cosy, comfortable cottage in a great central location for visiting some of the best areas of the Cotswolds."

    The cottage had everything we needed and we particularly loved the views over the back fields and watching the deer grazing in the field behind.

    CarolineSep 2019

  • "This is a very nice cottage in a lovely village location."

    I would stay here again.

    SarahAug 2019

  • "Attractively furnished cottage on the edge of lovely Cotswolds village."

    Great location for exploring on foot or by car. The cottage is cosy and the bedrooms are small (as accurately described in the particulars). But we were a party of 6 adults and managed fine.

  • "Lovely cottage, great views of countryside, we would definitely recommend a stay!"

    CarolineJul 2019

  • "Your property was absolutely gorgeous and we where all blown away by how much character it had to help us get into the spirit of the Cotswolds."

    We had beautiful weather which helped lots and went on some lovely walks, thank you so much for letting us stay in your lovely cottage.

  • "Wonderful place."

    Adorable quaint home and very comfortable. Loved our stay!

    KFeb 2019

  • "The cottage was lovely and the kitchen area definitely the heart of this house."

    The bedrooms are quite small but perfectly fine for a couple of days. The house was so well equipped with all the glasses, pot and pans you can want for 6 people. We would definitely stay here again!

    AmyJan 2019

  • "What a lovely, thoughtfully presented traditional cottage."

    It was immaculately clean with plenty of good quality linen and towels. The kitchen was very well stocked with all the equipment you might need in the course of your stay. Blockley itself is a lovely wee village, the cafe is great and the shop has all the essentials. We can recommend the Great Western Arms for both a nice evening out and also a great Sunday lunch. What a great week we spent there - our second trip to the Cotswolds. We wouldn't hesitate to return to Lammas Cottage.

    The cottage is lovely and well equipped and the garden beautiful with stunning views. We would highly recommend.

    SusieJun 2017

  • "I couldn't recommend this cottage enough as a great, comfortable base to explore the area."

    The cottage itself is very well equipped and was really nice and clean when we arrived. As it's an old cottage, the bedrooms aren't huge, but this only added to the character of the place. There is a lovely kitchen, living room and back garden to relax in the evenings or after a local walk. Blockley itself is a lovely small town, and we found the local shop / cafe had everything we needed locally over a three day stay. The location is very handy to drive around and explore the beautiful local towns. It's only a 5-6 minute drive to Chipping Camden which has lots of restaurant options in the evening. We had a lovely time and would gladly stay again!

The property

Resting on a quiet road in the heart of the historic village of Blockley, is this lovely three-bedroom Cotswold stone cottage, Lammas Cottage.

Perfectly located for exploring the beautiful Cotswolds, this cottage is the perfect retreat for a family or group of friends seeking a holiday surrounded by stunning countryside.

The front door opens into the ground-floor sitting room which is a lovely dual aspect room, where you can relax on the sofa and marvel at the stunning views whilst sat at the welcoming window seats whilst delving into a compelling novel.

A handy cloakroom sits adjacent to the sitting room, containing a basin and WC.

Downstairs on the lower ground-floor, you will find the open-plan living space, complete with a well-equipped kitchen, a wooden dining table and an inviting sitting area, which contains a charming woodburning stove and is full of traditional character such as Cotswold stone walls, exposed beams and flagstone flooring, the perfect space to enjoy a relaxed evening with your loved ones.

When night falls, make your way up to the first-floor where you will find two well-presented, compact double bedrooms and the family bathroom with a further steep staircase leading you up to the third bedroom located in the eaves of the cottage, which contains twin beds.

In the morning, access the lovely garden via the lower ground-floor sitting room and embrace the beautiful views across the Blockley Valley, where you can make use of the charcoal barbecue provided in 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 Lammas 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 base in the Cotswolds, stay at Lammas Cottage.

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.
