Self Catering in Gloucestershire - Blockley
Areas: Cotswolds, Gloucestershire
Sleeps a maximum of: 5
Pricing From: £469.00
Situated in an elevated position in the village of Blockley, this cottage has been refurbished to provide a comfortable retreat in the Cotswolds. Little Shrublands has two local pubs within walking distance and is only a short drive from many Cotswold hot spots including Chipping Campden, Stow-on the-Wold and Moreton-in-Marsh.
This contemporary cottage enjoys a peaceful location in an elevated position just minutes away from the village hub. Perfectly placed to take advantage of all that Blockley has to offer but ideally located to ensure a tranquil stay. When you return to your home from home after a busy day, muted tones and restful interiors ensure complete relaxation.
Mid way between Chipping Campden and Moreton-in-Marsh, Blockley is one of the larger Cotswold villages and remains relatively unspoilt. Like many of its Cotswold counterparts, the heritage of the village is firmly rooted in the wool trade but unlike others, following the decline of the wool trade, the village prospered thanks to the presence of the silk mills supplying silk ribbon to the Midlands. The handsome architecture means it's very easy on the eye, the Norman church is particularly striking but despite being picture postcard pretty, there's a real sense of community here too with the village shop being a community concern which is not only 'open all hours' but has a cafÃ© which also opens Friday evenings for dinner - very civilised! There's a great pub (always a boon for self-caterers) and a wealth of things to do and places to visit nearby with Batsford Arboretum, Cotswold falconry (and archery) and the gardens at Mill Dene being just a few.
