“Charming well equipped cottage in small historic village”

Streets too narrow for tour buses make this a peaceful and quiet spot. We visited other towns nearby, like Chipping Campden and the Slaughters but decided Blockley was far less touristy. The two pubs offered somewhere to go in the evening, but the highlight was the village shop and cafe, operated by the village co-operative. Just ideal for a self catering holiday. We spent two days walking in the local area, exploring Blockleys lanes and particularly the church.
The cottage was perfectly set up, and Victoria had even left us a lovely chocolate cake for supper. Most appreciated!
Note, the stairs are quite steep and narrow, typical of old cottages.

“Comfortable cottage, equiped to a high standard in quiet village with good walking”
Reviewed May 2, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

The cottage is fitted out with modern, good quality fixtures (very comfortable bed, shower, kitchen equipment etc) but is still a very comfortable, homely place to stay. It is in a lovely, quiet, Cotswold stone village with parking available in the street. The village shop which is close by has a good selection of provisions and the attached cafe does very nice breakfasts. The owners provided a number of local walk guides varying between 5 to 10 miles. We purchased OS map OL45 and really enjoyed these. National Trust properties we visited in the vicinity were: Hidcote - beautiful garden, Chedworth roman villa - interesting history and mosaics and Snowshill Manor - eclectic collection. All quite different from the typical NT mansions.

Our opinion has not been swayed by the delicious chocolate cake that greeted our arrival!

We were delighted to be able to stay in this gorgeous cottage twice in one month! Very comfortable, well equipped and stylish whilst retaining its real Cotswold flavour. We will be back!

We loved it, good location to explore, a beautiful cottage just perfect. The cottage was exceptionally clean and well maintained. Felt at home straight away. Ps The Spice Room in Moreton in the Marsh was fab.

We were looking for a charming cottage with character for a few days in the Costwolds. We found the perfect place. This was well beyond expectations in every single way. The cottage is beautifully decorated, the space is compact but works amazingly for 2 people. We loved the details such as a chocolate cake waiting for us on arrival! The best holiday rental I have had so far.

“A luxurious and perfect hideaway.”
Reviewed January 20, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

We stayed here for three nights as a birthday treat starting Friday 16th January.
The cottage is picture postcard, matched by the beautiful countryside and village of Blockley. The cottage is very well equipped with quality fixtures and boasts a wonderful log burner. I would recommend this to family, friends a colleagues without hesitation.
