  • "Well maintained, very clean."

    Beautifully decorated for Christmas. Am sure we'll go back again.

  • "This is a very impressive and well-equipped property with lots of space for a large family gathering."

    The views from the house are spectacular. It is a short walk to the village. Blockley itself is small, but well situated for visits to other Cotswolds towns and villages. We loved the house and would like to return.

    Fantastic garden and view. Had a problem with the alarm and the housekeeper sorted it as soon as possible. Even had a little gift of wine wine from the owners as a gesture. Would highly recommend

  • "Great stay and don't want to leave."

    Tommy And FamilyAug 2018

  • "Brilliant setting, lovely welcoming property."

    Great for all the family including the dogs.We got the only wet weekend of the summer but it did not dampen our enthusiasm one little bit. The bedrooms were super comfortable and the garden a real joy. The dining area (with the brightly coloured chairs) became the hub of our activities. The kitchen is well equipped. Of particular note, the two fridges meant we could plan ahead with meal preparation. Between thunder storms, we explored the village of Blockley and had a few competitive games of Pooh sticks in the stream. The village cafe catered for young and old and we very much enjoyed an early evening meal there. The attached shop sells lovely bread, most of the things you need and also serves as a post office. There is a beautiful parish church and an arboretum and the town of Broadway are both only a short drive away. There are also great walks along the Cotswold Way and more than enough to cater for all interests. In summary, it was really first rate and very restful. Just looking at the picture of the house as I write this, makes me hope that we will get the chance to go back there soon.

    AntoniaAug 2018

  • "Perfect location for a family gathering to celebrate mum's 70th birthday."

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.

Region Information

Note: The garden is enclosed however there is no gate on entrance to the driveway so children and dogs should be supervised at all times. Note: For the comfort of future guests, we ask that dogs do not go in bedrooms, stay off the furniture, and that no trace of a dog remains after your departure and that dogs sleep in the utility or kitchen area at night. Note: Blockley is in a valley and guests should be aware that mobile phone reception can be very poor. Note: There are low sloping ceilings and beams in the cinema room and mezzanine space, as well as steep stairs directly outside the cinema room, which guests need to be careful of, especially at night; there is a stair gate on the cinema room door for safety, but this room and the mezzanine space are better suited to teenagers rather than young children. Note: Although fully protected by railings, guests should be aware that there is a drop outside the door from the utility room, likewise, the master bedroom balcony has a drop down to the ground and to the left of the front door there is a drop as the garden slopes away, again with railings in place; due to these potential hazards inside and outside the house, young children should be supervised at all times. Note: This property does not accept stag, hen or similar parties. Note: The super-king-size bed is a zip/link bed and if you require it to be twin beds, please contact us.
