  • "The cottage was lovely in lots of respects , as described on the listing ."

    Lovely location great local pub , The Great Western with a great landlord and lovely food . Local shop that's very convenient too . Beds really comfy all well appointed as a home . Overall lovely and would recommend. Only a few niggles and would prefer to have a direct convo than put public, as only niggles and didn't massively affect our stay . Parking- this isn't ideal . We arrived after a long journey in the rain and could not get anywhere near the cottage . We had to park ages away which if you are not fit to be lugging your stuff then this is a deal breaker . This didn't get any better as we stayed there . Could you not at least get a cone for day of arrival ? And the day of leaving. Few maintenance things , the toilet handle is loose and needs fixing as this pinches your hand . The toilet seat is also loose and needs securing . The bathroom is lovely and shower great . The stairs altho mentioned as steep , they are very steep and the hessian carpet a little slippy on them in socks - might need a look at . The heating was insane while we were there , and not being able to adjust was limiting . It was sooooooo hot everywhere . Even when we turned radiators off . The heating seemed to be on all night aswell . We do worry about your bills ! Only last comment was the downstairs did smell of dogs ...not sure if the previous people had dogs in and it was wet days. It wasn't a major thing but just to mention . And to mention again ,these are just niggles as the place is lovely and we had a lovely cosy time and I would definitely recommend , they are more things that may need just attending to for it to be perfect ! Thank you .

    Many thanks for taking the time to share your comments.We so pleased to hear that you enjoyed the cottage As an old property, some of the stairs are steep as illustrated by the photo on the website. Thank you for taking the time to provide this feedback and we're glad you had a great stay at Red Fawn Cottage. Thank you also for bringing some issues to our attention during your stay we will get these looked and sorted . Best wishes Manor Cottages. Property Owner

  • "Lovely stay at Red Fawn cottage in the beautiful village of Blockley."

    Very quiet location and we had a great view at the back of the house of the herd of deer in the evening. Used the walking books provided- thank you. As listed- steep stairs over 3 levels so concentration needed. Everything we needed in the cottage. Beds were super comfy. Made use of the community shop and ate breakfast every day at the cafe! Local pubs very friendly so overall a lovely short break to recharge!

    Thank you for your wonderful comments. Sounds like you had a perfect stay. We hope we can welcome you back again. Best wishes Manor Cottages Property Owner

  • "The stairs to the bedrooms are extremely steep and I feel a solid handrail would be safer than the rope ones which are currently in place."

    The property was superb and well furnished. The outside seating showed rattan furniture in pictures but we found wooden folding chairs instead. Just a minor point as we really enjoyed our stay and hope to return! Thank you

  • "A beautiful cottage, sympathetically renovated to provide a cosy and comfortable holiday bolthole."

    The layout over 3 floors was fine for us (family with a teenager and dog) but the steep staircase to bedrooms would not be suitable for elderly guests. There's a further staircase down to the living area and extensive garden which was lovely to sit in and enjoy on a sunny day. The cottage is ideally situated in the small, friendly village of Blockley within easy reach of nearby Broadway, Chipping Campden etc. and some excellent dog walks. We had a lovely, relaxing stay at your property, thank you.

    Thank you for the wonderful feedback, we so pleased you had a delightful stay in Blockley and were able to make the most of the beautiful garden. Best wishes, Character Cottages Property Owner

    Facilities very good. Stairs very steep! Comfortable, everything we needed, but could have made use of of a tea pot. Would stay again.

  • "We had a great stay at the cottage."

    It is in a great position in the village, walking distance to the pub and village shop/cafe and offers easy access to the wider Cotswolds area. A couple of small issues on arrival (un-emptied bins and dirty outdoor furniture) were quickly remedied the same day by the management team. Would recommend that the property description mentions the fact the property has no washing machine. Although it is not listed as an amenity I had missed this and had packed assuming we would be able to do some washing during our stay. Otherwise a lovely stay.

    Thank you for taking the time to provide this feedback and we're glad you had a great stay at Red Fawn Cottage. Thank you also for bringing some issues to our attention during your stay as this is the best way to remedy any problem. We hope to welcome you again. Property Owner

  • "The steepness of the staircase and access out of and into the bedrooms was precarious and not accurately described."

    The outside furniture was dirty and tatty, and insufficient for a 4 person stay at the property. A second front door key should have been provided to allow separate couples east access. Keys should be on a key ring. Otherwise the cottage was well situated a short walk from facilities, and generally in good order.

    Thank you for your feedback. We hope that the issues you encountered did not leave a lasting impact on your stay. With regards to the stairs, it is mentioned in the property description that these are steep and may not be suitable for young children. This can also be seen in the photos on the listing as well. The garden furniture will be deep cleaned so that future guests do not experience the same disappointment, and we appreciate the suggestion to provide a second key, as well as having the keys on a key ring. These suggestions for improvement will be taken into full consideration. We are happy to hear that you generally enjoyed your stay and would be happy to welcome you back to the property in the future. Property Owner

About the location


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.

Note: Dogs: we ask that dogs remain downstairs, stay off the furniture and that no trace of a dog remains after your departure, a gated sleeping area has been built in the dining room especially for dogs, although the garden is enclosed, inquisitive dogs could jump the wall at the bottom of the garden and dogs are not permitted to be left alone in the property.

Note: Logs for the woodburning stove are provided between October and March; guests must purchase their own outside of these months.

Note: Guests with young children should be aware that the bedrooms on the first-floor open directly onto the steep staircase which leads down to the first floor and may not be suitable for young children.

Note: The garden is maintained by a professional gardening service every Thursday; this work will be completed as quickly as possible and with as little disturbance as possible to guests.
