The area remains affluent, which has encouraged the establishment of many high quality pubs, restaurants and antique shops.
  • This is a lovely cottage, finished to a high standard. It was brilliantly clean and had everything we needed for a weekend stay. The pub in the village is great, and it's only a 25 min walk to Chipping Camden.

    Welcome to Bracken Cottage, brought to you exclusively by Character Cottages, local specialists in stylish, Cotswold holiday rentals. Bracken Cottage is a traditional Cotswold stone cottage built to house the weavers who worked in the many silk mills of the beautiful village of Blockley. The cottage is one of a row on a quiet road and the rooms at the back benefit from fabulous views of the surrounding Blockley Valley. The historic village is very peaceful and picturesque yet benefits from having two pubs and a community owned village shop & café, as well as a historic Norman church in the centre of the village. Numerous scenic country walks are accessible directly from the cottage and Blockley is well located for visiting the many beautiful towns and villages of the Cotswolds. Important Customer Notice: - Special Events: Christmas, New Year and the Cheltenham Horse Racing Festival are Special Events, with bookings typically limited to weeks only from a specific start day If your dates don’t appear to fit, then please click Contact Host below to find out what options may exist for you!
    Bracken Cottage is one of a row of former silk weaver’s cottages set on a quiet road in the village of Blockley. The front door opens directly into the ground floor living area: Living room/dining room/kitchen: This homely open plan living space has a cosy wood burning stove, wooden beams and a stable door with views across to the fields beyond. This room contains a sofa, a window seat, a Smart TV, a fold away dining table with seating for two, an electric oven, four-ring gas hob, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, microwave, cafetière, kettle and toaster. Steep stairs lead up from the living area to the first floor landing, off which are the following rooms: Bedroom 2: A smart room with exposed painted beams, a king size bed, bedside tables, full length mirror and chest of drawers (please note the chest of drawers is not for guest use); Family bathroom: Decorated in a contemporary style, this spacious bathroom has a bath with handheld shower attachment, toilet, wash basin and a cupboard containing a washing machine. Further steep stairs lead directly into the master bedroom: Master bedroom: A characterful and cosy room in the eaves which contains a king size bed, Smart TV, chest of drawers and vanity mirror. The bedroom leads into the ensuite bathroom which contains a walk-in rain shower with handheld shower attachment, toilet and wash basin. The stable door leads from the kitchen into a wonderful landscaped garden with uninterrupted views of the countryside. The patio area directly outside the kitchen has a garden table with two benches, two chairs, a charcoal barbecue and a parasol. Three steps lead down from the patio to the lawn, bordered with timber beds along one side, and there is a further sunny patio and herb garden beyond. Free parking is available in the village car park opposite the cottage.
    Blockley is a popular village in the Cotswolds which is found within a triangle formed by three renowned market towns: Chipping Campden to the North, Moreton-in-Marsh to the South East and Stow-on-the-Wold to the South. Being close to these three towns has led to increased footfall in the village, bringing with it good quality pubs and a lovely village shop/café. As the village is away from main roads, it avoids the heavy tourist traffic and so visitors can get a real sense of rural life, enjoying the rolling countryside which falls within the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The peaceful Blockley Brook attracts tourists and locals as a quiet place to relax in the warmer months. This brook, together with the other brook in the village, played a part in Blockley's history as there were once 12 water mills which provided work in various industries over the centuries, including silk production and flour milling. Architecturally the village has quite a different character in comparison to the rest of the North Cotswolds as it has a more similar style to that of the villages in the Stroud valley, but here they have used a more golden stone. This design is reminiscent of wealthier times as the majority of the cottages were built during the 17th and 18th century, at the height of the industrial era. A popular attraction in Blockley is Mill Dene Garden which is a partner garden of the Royal Horticultural Society. With a misty grotto, stream and seats around the mill pond, this is a lovely place to while away the time looking out for the kingfishers whilst enjoying a cream tea. Food & Drink For a relatively small village, Blockley is blessed with a number of places to eat and drink, all just a short walk from anywhere in the village. The Crown Inn (www.crownhotelblockley.co.uk): This 16th century country inn is situated in the heart of Blockley and features a restaurant serving dishes prepared with local produce, along with a bar with an open fire and a wide selection of real ales. This honey coloured historic inn is covered in Virginia creeper which turns a stunning red in Autumn. Walk inside to the scents of wood smoke from the open log fires and snuggle into a comfy chair by the fire, to view the daily papers with a coffee or something stronger. Dinner is served in the warm and friendly restaurant with lighter meals and snacks available in the bar. The Great Western Arms (https://www.hooky.co.uk/content/our-pubs/great-western-arms-blockley.ashx): The award winning Great Western Arms is the “Local” of Blockley. The “Western” as it is locally known, is a Hook Norton Brewery pub and is tenanted to Sharon Brace. It is right at the heart of the village both geographically and socially, and is where Sharon and her team serve up some of the finest food, drink and entertainment available. The pub has two rooms: one is used as the restaurant and the other houses a pool table, juke box and darts board (dogs are welcome in the pool room). The Pub has recently been extensively refurbished and now boasts 1st class facilities and comforts. The spacious lounge bar/restaurant retains its period "feel" but has been re-furnished and decorated with great taste and care. The atmosphere is warm, welcoming and friendly. Blockley Village Shop & Café (blockleyshop.com): The community owned shop and café is the hub of the village. The shop offers a wide range of basic groceries and necessities, and a tempting array of local products, including farm meat and free-range eggs, daily deliveries of local fruit and veg, freshly baked bread and locally made ready meals. Logs are generally stocked in winter. The licensed café is open all day, serving breakfasts, lunches, coffees and teas, and home-baked cakes. Take-away hot and cold food, including croissants, pastries and baguettes, is also very popular. The café, where free broadband is available, is a popular meeting place for locals and visitors of all ages.
  • A lovely character cottage, in a beautiful unspoilt village, perfectly situated for exploring The Cotswolds. Local pub and wonderful village shop and cafe were definitely a bonus.

  • We stayed in Bracken Cottage for a weekend away and we couldn’t have asked for anything better. Beautiful house, lovely village with a great cafe. Good location to nearby villages to explore. Would absolutely return to Bracken Cottage another time.

    Katie2020-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • This cottage was beautiful, would highly recommend to those wanting to Visit the Cotswolds. Very close to many of the towns, but also located in a nice quiet area. We went to the local pub and cafe for meals, they were absolutely delicious. The cottage itself was very well decorated with lots of amenities. It was so lovely to snuggle up with the fire in the middle of winter. We would really recommend this home to others.

    Gaetano2019-12-16T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely and clean would definitely go back if I was in the area

    Stephen2019-11-29T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely relaxing stay at Bracken cottage with our 3 month old baby. The amenities were excellent and there were plenty of good options for food and excursions close by.

    Ursula2019-11-10T00:00:00Z
  • My hubby and I had a lovely short break here. Great little cottage with all you need in a nice village that’s not really touristy yet really close to many of the Cotswolds attractions. If you don’t fancy cooking there’s a super village cafe within walking distance for coffee & cake or breakfast or lunch and also a nice village pub for a pint or evening meal.

    Sam2019-10-18T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay at Bracken Cottage. It was perfect for my wife and me and our infant son. It is charming and well-appointed with a lovely back-yard. Parking was easy across the street. It's less than a 300 meter walk downhill to the village cafe. We would stay there again without hesitation.

    Paul2019-09-17T00:00:00Z
  • Great place for some “R&R”, as well as exploring the delightful towns nearby. Blockley is quiet and not touristy, but full of charm, and the locals are very friendly. Also the Great Western has excellent food, as does the local cafe, and the village shop has an amazing array of stock. Bracken Cottage is so quaint, warm and sunny. It has a really comfortable bed and lovely linens.

    Chipping Campden is one of the main market towns in the North Cotswolds, built by medieval traders with wealth created from the wool trade. With many thatched cottages, this is one of the most picturesque towns in the region. A notable feature of the town is the Market Hall which was built in 1627. Originally thought to be used in the wool trade, the main function of the hall was actually to give shelter to local cheese, poultry and butter sellers. The High Street is relatively small, taking just five minutes to walk from one end to the other, and it has a number of well-regarded eateries ranging from tea houses to dining pubs and restaurants. This main street curves in a shallow arc which is flanked on both sides by terraces of ancient houses, each house having its own embellishments. This feature of the town is one of the reasons why, in 1970, the street was officially designated as a conservation area. Chipping Campden marks one end of the Cotswolds Way which is a 102 mile National Trail linking Chipping Campden to Bath. For the majority of the trail it follows the Cotswold escarpment which gives the walker fantastic views of the surrounding scenery. The Way passes through many traditional villages and close to historical sites including Sudeley Castle near Winchcombe and Hailes Abbey. The countryside along the Way is very diverse, ranging from wildflower meadows to beech woodlands, providing visitors with perfect examples of Britain's stunning landscape. Chipping Campden has numerous places to eat and drink, with a range of cuisines and prices to suit most tastes and budgets. The list below is a small sample of the range of options available: The Kings Hotel (www.kingscampden.co.uk): Modern British food with a contemporary twist. You will encounter mouth-watering choices like a starter of Duck Rillets with a Pea Panna Cotta & Pomegranate dressing, or main course of Braised Belly Pork & Fillet, Crispy Langoustine Tail, Roasted Apple, Celeriac Choucroute & Dauphinoise Potato. To finish, the dessert menu promises blissful indulgence with the likes of Caramel Banana Mousse, Pain D’epice & Coffee Soil. For a more informal option, relax in the friendly atmosphere of the stylishly refurbished Brasserie bar, serving morning coffee & brunch through to afternoon tea & dinner. Enjoy favourites such as Mussels in Garlic & White Wine, Home-made Aberdeen Angus Burger, Focaccia, Smoked Bacon & Tomato Relish with Fries; Cotswold House Hotel (www.cotswoldhouse.com): The kitchen team take their inspiration from the finest offerings of dedicated producers - whether it be wholesome crusty breads, locally-churned cheeses, home-reared meats, best Cornish fish, vegetables from the lush Vale of Evesham, or jams and preserves from small-scale artisan producers. The result? The very best of modern British cooking. Wonderful, simple food served at lunch and dinner in The Cotswold Grill or at dinner in The Dining Room at Cotswold House. On warm days, enjoy a drink, coffee, or lunch on the Pavilion Terrace tucked away in the hotel garden, its borders awash with summer colour. Sit under a shady umbrella and enjoy the peace and quiet from morning coffee to your early evening sun-downer; Michael’s Mediterranean Restaurant(www.michaelsmediterranean.co.uk): Specialising in Greek and modern Mediterranean cuisine, served in a relaxed, intimate setting. Wine and dine in relaxed surroundings, with the warm ambience of open fires and a friendly service. From a delightful array of Mezze dishes, fresh fish and seafood with seasonal daily specials to the renowned “Marathona” Fillet Steaks.

  • Wonderful cottage. Full of character and charm while providing all the amenities for a wonderful stay. Ideal location to explore the Cotswolds. Chipping Campden itself is beautiful. We visited several villages, the hunt at Broadway, Stratford, Bath etc.. Highly recommended and we will be sure to visit back in summer.

    Welcome to Honeysuckle Cottage, brought to you exclusively by Character Cottages, local specialists in stylish, Cotswold holiday rentals. Honeysuckle Cottage is a beautiful period property, with stunning views of the surrounding Cotswold countryside. Located in the picturesque village of Blockley, the cottage is one of a row of traditional Cotswold stone cottages built to house the weavers who once worked in the many silk mills of the village. Blockley is very peaceful, yet it benefits from having two pubs and a community owned village shop & café, as well as a historic Norman church. Many beautiful country walks are accessible directly from the village, and Blockley is well placed for exploring the many beautiful towns and villages of the Cotswolds, as well as further afield places, such as Stratford-upon-Avon, Oxford and Blenheim Palace. Important Customer Notice: - Special Events: Christmas, New Year and the Cheltenham Horse Racing Festival are Special Events, with bookings typically limited to weeks only from a specific start day If your dates don’t appear to fit, then please click Contact Host below to find out what options may exist for you!
    Honeysuckle Cottage is one of a row of Cotswold stone cottages, on a quiet street in the village of Blockley. The front door opens directly into the living room, and the following rooms are on the ground floor: Living room: This bright and welcoming room has wonderful character features, including an exposed Cotswold stone wall with window seat, stone mullion window, and a cosy wood burning stove. There are two comfortable sofas, and a Smart TV with integrated DVD player; Family bathroom: Located at the back of the cottage, with fabulous views over Blockley Valley, the refurbished bathroom has a roll top bath with an overhead rainfall shower, wash basin and a toilet. Stairs lead down directly from the living room to the lower ground floor rooms: Dining room: This delightful room has exposed wooden beams, a flag stone floor, large ornamental stone fireplace and another pretty window seat. The wooden dining table seats four people, and there is also a sideboard, a wine rack and a boot cupboard; Kitchen: This well-presented room has an electric oven with a four-ring gas hob, fridge, freezer, slimline dishwasher, washing machine, microwave, kettle, toaster and filter coffee machine. There are also a good selection of cookery books. Returning to the ground floor, a relatively steep staircase leads up to the first floor bedrooms, both of which have lovely countryside views: Bedroom 1: This pretty room has a wooden floor and stone mullion windows, and can be set up as either a king size bed, or two 75cm wide single beds. There is a wardrobe with shelves; Bedroom 2: Another lovely room, with stone mullion windows, which contains a king size bed. The cottage's enclosed garden is at the rear of the property, and is accessed from the dining room on the lower ground floor. There is a decking area, bordered on either side by mature plants, which leads to a lovely seating area at the end of the garden, with stunning uninterrupted views of the surrounding countryside. There is a table and four chairs, as well as a charcoal barbecue. Free on street parking is available on the quiet road outside the cottage.
    Blockley is a popular village in the Cotswolds which is found within a triangle formed by three renowned market towns: Chipping Campden to the North, Moreton-in-Marsh to the South East and Stow-on-the-Wold to the South. Being close to these three towns has led to increased footfall in the village, bringing with it good quality pubs and a lovely village shop/café. As the village is away from main roads, it avoids the heavy tourist traffic and so visitors can get a real sense of rural life, enjoying the rolling countryside which falls within the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The peaceful Blockley Brook attracts tourists and locals as a quiet place to relax in the warmer months. This brook, together with the other brook in the village, played a part in Blockley's history as there were once 12 water mills which provided work in various industries over the centuries, including silk production and flour milling. Architecturally the village has quite a different character in comparison to the rest of the North Cotswolds as it has a more similar style to that of the villages in the Stroud valley, but here they have used a more golden stone. This design is reminiscent of wealthier times as the majority of the cottages were built during the 17th and 18th century, at the height of the industrial era. A popular attraction in Blockley is Mill Dene Garden which is a partner garden of the Royal Horticultural Society. With a misty grotto, stream and seats around the mill pond, this is a lovely place to while away the time looking out for the kingfishers whilst enjoying a cream tea. Food & Drink For a relatively small village, Blockley is blessed with a number of places to eat and drink, all just a short walk from anywhere in the village. The Crown Inn (www.crownhotelblockley.co.uk): This 16th century country inn is situated in the heart of Blockley and features a restaurant serving dishes prepared with local produce, along with a bar with an open fire and a wide selection of real ales. This honey coloured historic inn is covered in Virginia creeper which turns a stunning red in Autumn. Walk inside to the scents of wood smoke from the open log fires and snuggle into a comfy chair by the fire, to view the daily papers with a coffee or something stronger. Dinner is served in the warm and friendly restaurant with lighter meals and snacks available in the bar. The Great Western Arms (https://www.hooky.co.uk/content/our-pubs/great-western-arms-blockley.ashx): The award winning Great Western Arms is the “Local” of Blockley. The “Western” as it is locally known, is a Hook Norton Brewery pub and is tenanted to Sharon Brace. It is right at the heart of the village both geographically and socially, and is where Sharon and her team serve up some of the finest food, drink and entertainment available. The pub has two rooms: one is used as the restaurant and the other houses a pool table, juke box and darts board (dogs are welcome in the pool room). The Pub has recently been extensively refurbished and now boasts 1st class facilities and comforts. The spacious lounge bar/restaurant retains its period "feel" but has been re-furnished and decorated with great taste and care. The atmosphere is warm, welcoming and friendly. Blockley Village Shop & Café (blockleyshop.com): The community owned shop and café is the hub of the village. The shop offers a wide range of basic groceries and necessities, and a tempting array of local products, including farm meat and free-range eggs, daily deliveries of local fruit and veg, freshly baked bread and locally made ready meals. Logs are generally stocked in winter. The licensed café is open all day, serving breakfasts, lunches, coffees and teas, and home-baked cakes. Take-away hot and cold food, including croissants, pastries and baguettes, is also very popular. The café, where free broadband is available, is a popular meeting place for locals and visitors of all ages.
  • Lovely 3 storey cottage & well geared for dogs that stay. Stained glass windows in bathroom & local maps of geology of the area were really interesting

    Katie2019-11-11T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful cottage in lovely location, amazing views of the fields- we had breakfast in September outside every day ! Location great to visit the Cotswolds by car.

    Bhavina2019-09-19T00:00:00Z
  • A very cosy and idyllic cottage on the corner of Blockley village. The road is as tranquil as the cottage itself, with gorgeous views and the calming silence the sweeping hills behind it give. The hosts provide a very detailed and thought out guide to your stay. Inside is clean and bright, with the feeling of a home as opposed to an empty dwelling. Thank you!

    Georgia2019-08-12T00:00:00Z
  • Honeysuckle Cottage was a wonderful space to spend the long weekend at. We had a magical weekend! Only wish we had stars longer. The organisation once you book makes arriving and accessing the house super easy! The house is spacious with lovely features. The view is breath taking. The village is cute and surrounding walks wonderful. It’s really al you need for a cosy time in the country! Highest recommendation!

  • This. Cottage. Is. So. Cozy. I had the best time, and found it perfectly suited for for resting, reading, and re-charging. The fireplace is a nice added touch, as was the lemon cake waiting for me with my tea. I would 100% go back. I miss it already.

    Amanda2019-12-02T00:00:00Z
  • We found this place to be what it says on the tin. Not too overdone and quaint and cosy. Great to relax and let yourself away. Sitting by the fire crackling away as rain pattered on the porch roof with a glass of wine in hand and great friends in toe was a wonderful experience. The local area is good for a few days explore with Bourton Wood as a particularly beautiful highlight. The space is a little small so I’d keep it to three people max but it worked well for 2-3 nights. The parking space was also tight but was fine in the end. The shower was also great - an important part of a winter stay in the Cotswolds!

    David2019-11-24T00:00:00Z
  • Super cosy cottage with a great fireplace making it ideal for a winter break.

    Dan2019-11-08T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great time. The cottage was small but very clean and cosy. It’s well equipped and brilliantly located for exploring the Cotswolds

    Sally2019-10-28T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely cottage - perfect for our family of 3!!

    John2019-10-25T00:00:00Z
  • This is a really sweet, cosy cottage. It is small but this is accurately represented in the description. It is ideal for a couple with a young child. We had a third adult occupying the small single room which was fine for the couple of nights we were there. I did think that at over £400 for a couple of nights was expensive and if I was to stay there again would probably go direct to Character Cottages rather than through AirBnB. However it is very conveniently situated for this lovely village of Brockley and the parking wasn’t as complicated as it first sounded it might be. We did a lovely walk over to Batsford Arboretum and also managed to be in Brockley for film night which was an additional unexpected treat.

    Ann2019-10-20T00:00:00Z
  • The Alice Cottage is really very nice, tastefully decorated and clean. Comfortable veranda at the entrance, ideal for taking off wet jackets and shoes before entering the house. Large and well equipped kitchen. The only thing missing is the dishwasher, for the rest there's really everything, even a very useful washer / dryer. The bathroom, located on the upper floor, is small but functional. The large and tastefully furnished double bedroom. That single little one but pretty. The strength of the cottage is undoubtedly the small living room with fireplace. Especially when it is raining and cold outside, being able to relax in front of the fireplace, is really a unique and priceless experience (wood is necessary to light the fire provided by the property). Convenient private parking in front of the entrance. Excellent location. The picturesque village of Blockley is the ideal starting point to visit the Cotswolds. Simply perfect for those who want a relaxing holiday in the heart of the English countryside. Finally I point out the seriousness of the agency that manages the property. Really very kind and helpful. If we were to return to the Cotswolds in the future, we would have no doubts, we would certainly return to the Alice Cottage. Highly recommended!

    Monica2019-10-07T00:00:00Z

  • Blockley is a lovely village and this cottage is a good option to be 5min walk away with some great countryside nearby. The open fire was lovely and the cottage was perfect size for the 4 of us for a short weekend.

    Kate2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • Absolute gem in a rather beautiful, yet lesser known part of the Cotswolds. I would return to the Red Lion Cottage in a heartbeat.

    Caz2019-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • This cottage is very comfortable, well equipped and in a good location. It is in a quiet area with street parking in a lovely village. The cottage is a good size inside with a bathroom and toilet upstairs and shower room and toilet downstairs. Kitchen has all you need and there are books and games available. The village is charming and has a good shop and cafe. We did the historic walks around the village which was great and gave us a sense of village life then and now. I would definitely recommend this cottage for a stay in the Cotswolds.

    Leonie2019-10-18T00:00:00Z
  • A perfect cottage - everything you could ever want for a Cotswold visit!!!

    Mary2019-09-27T00:00:00Z
  • Great location and generally well equipped. Cosy with character.

    Linda2019-05-27T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful time at the cottage, so much so we managed to book in a last minute extra night. Lots of little touches made it the perfect Cotswolds stay. The only thing I would say in terms of feedback is the grill smoked up as soon as we switched on so we think it may need a clean! Thank you so much, we definitely want to return again!

    Laina2019-02-23T00:00:00Z

  • What a wonderful stay! From the moment we arrived we were beyond amazed with the hospitality and location. Such a stylish little place with fantastic views. We were equipped with everything we needed and more. Honestly the best two nights sleep we have had in a while. The bed was dreamy, so lovely and soft. The local area was beautiful, despite the storm. We will definitely be back, thank you!

  • A great use of the space, has everything you need and more! Would definitely come back.

    Stephen2019-11-04T00:00:00Z
  • My boyfriend and I had a great time. The cabin is so cute and the fire is so cosy. Loved cooking in the wood fire oven! Just 2 tips for future guests: if it’s windy at night you might want to take the shower bucket down, it’s incredibly loud when it gets blown around. And be careful not to overheat the hot tub. It maintains its temperature very well, which is great but we accidentally left it heating for too long and then couldn’t get it to cool down for hours!

    Chloe2019-11-01T00:00:00Z
  • Great people, offering a great stay, good place to reset, off the grid away from everything. Couldn’t ask for more, loved it. Would happily go again and again :)

The gated driveway provides off-street parking for up to two small cars, and further on-street parking is available on the lane.
    The Cotswolds are characterised by attractive small towns and villages, built of the underlying Cotswold stone (a yellow oolitic limestone). In the Middle Ages the wool trade made the Cotswolds prosperous and some of this money was put into the building of churches, leaving the area with a number of large handsome Cotswold stone "wool churches". The area remains affluent, which has encouraged the establishment of many high quality pubs, restaurants and antique shops.
  • A fabulous, stylish and comfortable cottage.

    Alison2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • The cottage is so beautiful, even better than the photos. The interior design is spot on for a cottage. Really quiet location which is what we were looking for, but only a 10 min drive to the busier villages with shops, restaurants and cafes.

    Helen2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • Had a great weekend stay with my wife. Great place to switch off from a busy life. Will return!

    Chris2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful place to stay - we knew from looking at the photos and previous comments that it would be a beautiful cottage but the attention to lots of little details made it even more special. Also incredibly peaceful with lovely views from both sides of the house and a short drive to the loveliest villages of the Cotswolds. We will be back as soon as we have the opportunity.

    Kay2020-01-23T00:00:00Z
  • This has simply been the best stay that we ever had. Everything about this place was amazing. Cannot wait to come back and stay again. Thank you!!

    Broadway is a beautiful village in the North Cotswolds, steeped in history and surrounded by stunning countryside. The village gets its name from the wide street, or broad way, that runs through the centre which was once the main road from Worcester to London. This attractive High Street is bordered with chestnut trees and honey coloured stone cottages dating from the 16th century and is one of the most picturesque villages of the Cotswolds. The broad way is thought to be especially wide because at one time there used to be streams running each side of the main drive. These streams were eventually hidden in underground pipes where they would emerge at 'dipping' points, but sadly they are now almost completely invisible. The village has artistic links with famous dwellers including J.M. Barrie, Mary Anderson and William Morris, who were drawn to the tranquillity of Broadway. It was here that Morris and John Ruskin pioneered the idea of the Arts and Crafts Movement which made its home in the area and went on to be an international movement. One of the iconic features of the village is Broadway Tower which was built in the late 18th century by the Earl of Coventry. It is said that the tower was erected so that the Countess could see if her Cotswold estate was visible from Croome Court in Worcestershire, which it was. The folly stands some 1,024 feet above sea level, making it the second highest point in the Cotswolds after Cleeve Hill. In fact, on a clear day, visitors are able to see 14 counties from the top! William Morris was so taken by the tower that he went on to establish the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings in 1877. Food & Drink Broadway has a number of places to eat and drink, with a range of cuisines and prices to suit most tastes and budgets. The list below is a sample of the options available: Russell's (www.russellsofbroadway.co.uk): Head Chef, Neil Clarke, serves modern British food in the award-winning restaurant, with local Vale of Evesham and Cotswold produce featuring throughout the daily-changing menus. The modern, airy dining room is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, with friendly staff and laid-back service combining to create a relaxed and warm setting, day and night; The Lygon Arms (http://www.thehotelcollection.co.uk/hotels/the-lygon-arms-hotel-cotswolds/): A 17th century minstrel's gallery, a grand open fire and an imposing barrel-vaulted ceiling greet you as you enter The Great Hall, the main dining room of the famous Lygon Arms Hotel. A destination in its own right, people travel miles to enjoy the restaurant's 2 AA Rosettes for excellence sumptuous cuisine and warm friendly service of the highest quality. A few steps across the courtyard, Lukes Bistro offers a relaxing atmosphere serving traditional English cuisine with a contemporary twist, equally as imaginative and as fresh, using ingredients that are grown and reared locally, including a wide range of herbs and plums from the hotel's own orchards; The Potting Shed (www.dormyhouse.co.uk/potting-shed-restaurant): The Potting Shed is everything a Cotswold country dining pub should be. It's relaxed and inviting, with a large leather-and-oak bar and a rustic agenda. This is English pub grub as it ought to be: sticky ribs, great bangers, slow-cooked pork belly and fish that's been caught on our shores. Dress up and enjoy a pre-dinner cocktail, or dress down and bring the kids.

    Chipping Campden is one of the main market towns in the North Cotswolds, built by medieval traders with wealth created from the wool trade. With many thatched cottages, this is one of the most picturesque towns in the region. A notable feature of the town is the Market Hall which was built in 1627. Originally thought to be used in the wool trade, the main function of the hall was actually to give shelter to local cheese, poultry and butter sellers. The High Street is relatively small, taking just five minutes to walk from one end to the other, and it has a number of well-regarded eateries ranging from tea houses to dining pubs and restaurants. This main street curves in a shallow arc which is flanked on both sides by terraces of ancient houses, each house having its own embellishments. This feature of the town is one of the reasons why, in 1970, the street was officially designated as a conservation area. Chipping Campden marks one end of the Cotswolds Way which is a 102 mile National Trail linking Chipping Campden to Bath. For the majority of the trail it follows the Cotswold escarpment which gives the walker fantastic views of the surrounding scenery. The Way passes through many traditional villages and close to historical sites including Sudeley Castle near Winchcombe and Hailes Abbey. The countryside along the Way is very diverse, ranging from wildflower meadows to beech woodlands, providing visitors with perfect examples of Britain's stunning landscape.
  • A fabulous bolt hole to explore the area, enjoy walks from the door and a village with wonderful food and eateries.

The front door opens into an open plan living/dining room and the following rooms are on the ground floor: Living/dining room: This sociable living space is full of character including a stone mullion window, a fireplace with open fire and an exposed Cotswold stone wall.

    Blockley is a popular village in the Cotswolds which is found within a triangle formed by three renowned market towns: Chipping Campden to the North, Moreton-in-Marsh to the South East and Stow-on-the-Wold to the South. Being close to these three towns has led to increased footfall in the village, bringing with it good quality pubs and a lovely village shop/café. As the village is away from main roads, it avoids the heavy tourist traffic and so visitors can get a real sense of rural life, enjoying the rolling countryside which falls within the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The peaceful Blockley Brook attracts tourists and locals as a quiet place to relax in the warmer months. This brook, together with the other brook in the village, played a part in Blockley's history as there were once 12 water mills which provided work in various industries over the centuries, including silk production and flour milling. Architecturally the village has quite a different character in comparison to the rest of the North Cotswolds as it has a more similar style to that of the villages in the Stroud valley, but here they have used a more golden stone. This design is reminiscent of wealthier times as the majority of the cottages were built during the 17th and 18th century, at the height of the industrial era. A popular attraction in Blockley is Mill Dene Garden which is a partner garden of the Royal Horticultural Society. With a misty grotto, stream and seats around the mill pond, this is a lovely place to while away the time looking out for the kingfishers whilst enjoying a cream tea. Food & Drink For a relatively small village, Blockley is blessed with a number of places to eat and drink, all just a short walk from anywhere in the village. The Crown Inn (www.crownhotelblockley.co.uk): This 16th century country inn is situated in the heart of Blockley and features a restaurant serving dishes prepared with local produce, along with a bar with an open fire and a wide selection of real ales. This honey coloured historic inn is covered in Virginia creeper which turns a stunning red in Autumn. Walk inside to the scents of wood smoke from the open log fires and snuggle into a comfy chair by the fire, to view the daily papers with a coffee or something stronger. Dinner is served in the warm and friendly restaurant with lighter meals and snacks available in the bar. The Great Western Arms (https://www.hooky.co.uk/content/our-pubs/great-western-arms-blockley.ashx): The award winning Great Western Arms is the “Local” of Blockley. The “Western” as it is locally known, is a Hook Norton Brewery pub and is tenanted to Sharon Brace. It is right at the heart of the village both geographically and socially, and is where Sharon and her team serve up some of the finest food, drink and entertainment available. The pub has two rooms: one is used as the restaurant and the other houses a pool table, juke box and darts board (dogs are welcome in the pool room). The Pub has recently been extensively refurbished and now boasts 1st class facilities and comforts. The spacious lounge bar/restaurant retains its period "feel" but has been re-furnished and decorated with great taste and care. The atmosphere is warm, welcoming and friendly. Blockley Village Shop & Café (blockleyshop.com): The community owned shop and café is the hub of the village. The shop offers a wide range of basic groceries and necessities, and a tempting array of local products, including farm meat and free-range eggs, daily deliveries of local fruit and veg, freshly baked bread and locally made ready meals. Logs are generally stocked in winter. The licensed café is open all day, serving breakfasts, lunches, coffees and teas, and home-baked cakes. Take-away hot and cold food, including croissants, pastries and baguettes, is also very popular. The café, where free broadband is available, is a popular meeting place for locals and visitors of all ages.

  • We loved our stay at this beautiful cottage and would happily go back. Great location. Little things, every visitor being left a set of soft towels, even a dog towel and sufficient toilet paper and washing up liquid make a difference. We bought our own but for once didn’t need them. Beds were very comfortable, and it was like home from home. When we needed to contact Katie she responded very quickly which was great.

  • We had a great time at the Farthings. Everything was perfect, the cottage was warm and cosy when we arrived in the middle of Storm Ciara, the welcome basket was a nice feature and the little touches like doggie towels were so thoughtful. The log burner was brilliant in the cold stormy nights, keeping us warm and cosy. The recommendations were spot on! We particularly liked the Bakers Arms, Dave and Michelle were ace and the food and beer were perfect! The Noel Arms in Chipping Campden was also very welcoming with Nice staff, good food and dog friendly into the bargain, we went back a couple of times! The Swan Inn at Broadway was also a good spot for a dog friendly pub lunch. We went to the Lygon Arms Hotel in Broadway for a birthday celebration and it was fantastic, what a place. We loved our stay at the Farthings and would look forward to returning at some time in the future. Thank you Katie, love Pam, John, Polly, James, Kirsty & Ben...... and Ruadh (the Fox Red Labrador)

  • If you want a picture perfect holiday in the Cotswolds, The Farthings is an absolutely lovely way to do it. The location is great, giving access to many different villages. There is a footpath right next to the house so all you walkers out there will have a great access point. With the lovely little Bakers Arms only a few minutes walk, you can enjoy the day and top it off with a pint at the end. The house itself is updated with modern amenities but with the perfect amount of old world charm. The exposed timber in the ceiling was so neat since we don’t get that in the states. We highly recommend this place!

  • Katie’s home was beautiful, comfortable and well equipped. We could not have asked for a lovelier space to enjoy our time in the Cotswolds!! It is perfectly situated in a quiet little village and is an easy drive to all the best towns close by. Katie was wonderful to communicate with and always responded quickly. The house has lovely games and even a box of kids toys which my daughter loved!! We will absolutely be back :)!

    Kirsty2020-01-09T00:00:00Z
  • The Farthings had everything we needed for a brilliant family birthday celebration. The cottage was comfortable, in a great location and Sky movies was a great addition. Thank you for the fantastic welcome basket.

    Joanne2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent layout of space in this very charming cottage. It is filled with every amenity two families or a family of 5-6 would need to have a memorable time in the Cotswolds! Close to fabulous walking trails (one is literally next to the house) and a great pub. Short walk into Chipping Campden high street. We made Christmas cookies in the spacious kitchen, as well as a proper Mary Berry holiday meal! There was even a sparkly Christmas tree up when we arrived. Katie is a very nice host! Great memories for our all adult family of five.

    Chipping Campden is one of the main market towns in the North Cotswolds, built by medieval traders with wealth created from the wool trade. With many thatched cottages, this is one of the most picturesque towns in the region. A notable feature of the town is the Market Hall which was built in 1627. Originally thought to be used in the wool trade, the main function of the hall was actually to give shelter to local cheese, poultry and butter sellers. The High Street is relatively small, taking just five minutes to walk from one end to the other, and it has a number of well-regarded eateries ranging from tea houses to dining pubs and restaurants. This main street curves in a shallow arc which is flanked on both sides by terraces of ancient houses, each house having its own embellishments. This feature of the town is one of the reasons why, in 1970, the street was officially designated as a conservation area. Chipping Campden marks one end of the Cotswolds Way which is a 102 mile National Trail linking Chipping Campden to Bath. For the majority of the trail it follows the Cotswold escarpment which gives the walker fantastic views of the surrounding scenery. The Way passes through many traditional villages and close to historical sites including Sudeley Castle near Winchcombe and Hailes Abbey. The countryside along the Way is very diverse, ranging from wildflower meadows to beech woodlands, providing visitors with perfect examples of Britain's stunning landscape. Food & Drink Chipping Campden has numerous places to eat and drink, with a range of cuisines and prices to suit most tastes and budgets. The list below is a small sample of the range of options available: The Kings Hotel (www.kingscampden.co.uk): Modern British food with a contemporary twist. You will encounter mouth-watering choices like a starter of Duck Rillets with a Pea Panna Cotta & Pomegranate dressing, or main course of Braised Belly Pork & Fillet, Crispy Langoustine Tail, Roasted Apple, Celeriac Choucroute & Dauphinoise Potato. To finish, the dessert menu promises blissful indulgence with the likes of Caramel Banana Mousse, Pain D’epice & Coffee Soil. For a more informal option, relax in the friendly atmosphere of the stylishly refurbished Brasserie bar, serving morning coffee & brunch through to afternoon tea & dinner. Enjoy favourites such as Mussels in Garlic & White Wine, Home-made Aberdeen Angus Burger, Focaccia, Smoked Bacon & Tomato Relish with Fries; Cotswold House Hotel (www.cotswoldhouse.com): The kitchen team take their inspiration from the finest offerings of dedicated producers - whether it be wholesome crusty breads, locally-churned cheeses, home-reared meats, best Cornish fish, vegetables from the lush Vale of Evesham, or jams and preserves from small-scale artisan producers. The result? The very best of modern British cooking. Wonderful, simple food served at lunch and dinner in The Cotswold Grill or at dinner in The Dining Room at Cotswold House. On warm days, enjoy a drink, coffee, or lunch on the Pavilion Terrace tucked away in the hotel garden, its borders awash with summer colour. Sit under a shady umbrella and enjoy the peace and quiet from morning coffee to your early evening sun-downer; Michael’s Mediterranean Restaurant(www.michaelsmediterranean.co.uk): Specialising in Greek and modern Mediterranean cuisine, served in a relaxed, intimate setting. Wine and dine in relaxed surroundings, with the warm ambience of open fires and a friendly service. From a delightful array of Mezze dishes, fresh fish and seafood with seasonal daily specials to the renowned “Marathona” Fillet Steaks.

    Broadway is a beautiful village in the North Cotswolds, steeped in history and surrounded by stunning countryside. The village gets its name from the wide street, or broad way, that runs through the centre which was once the main road from Worcester to London. This attractive High Street is bordered with chestnut trees and honey coloured stone cottages dating from the 16th century and is one of the most picturesque villages of the Cotswolds. The broad way is thought to be especially wide because at one time there used to be streams running each side of the main drive. These streams were eventually hidden in underground pipes where they would emerge at 'dipping' points, but sadly they are now almost completely invisible. The village has artistic links with famous dwellers including J.M. Barrie, Mary Anderson and William Morris, who were drawn to the tranquillity of Broadway. It was here that Morris and John Ruskin pioneered the idea of the Arts and Crafts Movement which made its home in the area and went on to be an international movement. One of the iconic features of the village is Broadway Tower which was built in the late 18th century by the Earl of Coventry. It is said that the tower was erected so that the Countess could see if her Cotswold estate was visible from Croome Court in Worcestershire, which it was. The folly stands some 1,024 feet above sea level, making it the second highest point in the Cotswolds after Cleeve Hill. In fact, on a clear day, visitors are able to see 14 counties from the top! William Morris was so taken by the tower that he went on to establish the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings in 1877.
  • Lovely warm and cosy cottage. Even in the middle of December we were warm and toasty with the log burner, piping hot showers and lovely bedding. Perfect location for pottering around Broadway with its beautiful Christmassy atmosphere and wonderful places to eat and drink.

    The Cotswolds are characterised by attractive small towns and villages, built of the underlying Cotswold stone (a yellow oolitic limestone). In the Middle Ages the wool trade made the Cotswolds prosperous and some of this money was put into the building of churches, leaving the area with a number of large handsome Cotswold stone "wool churches". The area remains affluent, which has encouraged the establishment of many high quality pubs, restaurants and antique shops.
  • Lovely cottage, spotlessly clean and clutter free yet very cosy which is often a hard balance to strike. Everything you need and really practically organised to make finding things intuitive. Great location.

  • Lovely cozy place, nice to read the guest book and other tips available.

    Tim2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • Great little cottage, gorgeously decorated and with everything we needed (except a freezer which we didn't check before buying ice cream!). Really cosy and comfortable, especially with the wood burner. Tha ks for a lovely stay.

    Sarah2020-01-13T00:00:00Z
  • Great little cottage, perfect for a few days in the Cotswolds. Very cosy and comfortable

    Nicole2020-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely few days at Cobblers Cottage- very cosy - great location for exploring The Cotswolds - would definitely recommend it.

    Emma2019-11-08T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely place to explore the Cotswolds from and return to each evening.

    Sam2019-07-09T00:00:00Z
  • This place is wonderful! We loved it so much. The village is adorable and quite near everything we wanted to visit. There was a lovely market in the town square the day we arrived. Check-in was easy, the cottage is absolutely lovely and felt like home. The floors were a bit squeaky but we loved it! Unfortunately, we got a flat tire when we pulled in and they weren’t able to bring us a spare (no spares in European rentals for some unknown reason). We weren’t able to get a new car until late the next day. And even though that bummed us out, we couldn’t have had a better place to be lazy in while we waited! There’s plenty of places to eat and a small grocery right around the corner. We drove into Stow on the Wold for dinner at The Porch House (it was terrific!).

    Heather2019-05-30T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing cottage in a beautiful spot. Really convenient for an amble to the pub and quaint shops of Morton. Would definitely stay again.

  • Cosy warm cottage in a very quiet village with good local pub

    Allun2019-10-07T00:00:00Z
  • It's a beautiful house. The kitchen is really lovely. The kids love the swing set and garden, as well as the themed room. If you are bringing a toddler, this is definitely a fantastic choice as baby gates, potty, highchair, travel cot, kid plates and cups, and toys are there for you. This was our second stay. We really love this cottage!

    Javier2019-09-27T00:00:00Z
  • We had a really lovely stay here. Cotswolds is a gorgeous area. The cottage was clean, stylish and very well kept. The fire kept us cosy in the evenings and the stone floor kept us cool in the 30 degree heat we had this summer. The direct neighbours we very kind and polite. A few cottages down were abit rude telling me and my 3 young children to get off her drive (we had 1 foot on her drive and 1 foot on the road) while we waited for my husband to quickly grab his wallet. Thats my only gripe. The cottage is only a short drive to lots of fun days out! Would 100% recommend

    Hayley2019-07-29T00:00:00Z
  • Great stay in Snowshill! Lovely cottage with plenty of space, beautiful garden and great location. Only downside is one bathroom but everything else was perfect.

    Nancy2019-07-21T00:00:00Z

    Blockley is a popular village in the Cotswolds which is found within a triangle formed by three renowned market towns: Chipping Campden to the North, Moreton-in-Marsh to the South East and Stow-on-the-Wold to the South. Being close to these three towns has led to increased footfall in the village, bringing with it good quality pubs and a lovely village shop/café. As the village is away from main roads, it avoids the heavy tourist traffic and so visitors can get a real sense of rural life, enjoying the rolling countryside which falls within the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The peaceful Blockley Brook attracts tourists and locals as a quiet place to relax in the warmer months. This brook, together with the other brook in the village, played a part in Blockley's history as there were once 12 water mills which provided work in various industries over the centuries, including silk production and flour milling. Architecturally the village has quite a different character in comparison to the rest of the North Cotswolds as it has a more similar style to that of the villages in the Stroud valley, but here they have used a more golden stone. This design is reminiscent of wealthier times as the majority of the cottages were built during the 17th and 18th century, at the height of the industrial era. A popular attraction in Blockley is Mill Dene Garden which is a partner garden of the Royal Horticultural Society. With a misty grotto, stream and seats around the mill pond, this is a lovely place to while away the time looking out for the kingfishers whilst enjoying a cream tea. Food & Drink For a relatively small village, Blockley is blessed with a number of places to eat and drink, all just a short walk from anywhere in the village. The Crown Inn (www.crownhotelblockley.co.uk): This 16th century country inn is situated in the heart of Blockley and features a restaurant serving dishes prepared with local produce, along with a bar with an open fire and a wide selection of real ales. This honey coloured historic inn is covered in Virginia creeper which turns a stunning red in Autumn. Walk inside to the scents of wood smoke from the open log fires and snuggle into a comfy chair by the fire, to view the daily papers with a coffee or something stronger. Dinner is served in the warm and friendly restaurant with lighter meals and snacks available in the bar. The Great Western Arms (https://www.hooky.co.uk/content/our-pubs/great-western-arms-blockley.ashx): The award winning Great Western Arms is the “Local” of Blockley. The “Western” as it is locally known, is a Hook Norton Brewery pub and is tenanted to Sharon Brace. It is right at the heart of the village both geographically and socially, and is where Sharon and her team serve up some of the finest food, drink and entertainment available. The pub has two rooms: one is used as the restaurant and the other houses a pool table, juke box and darts board (dogs are welcome in the pool room). The Pub has recently been extensively refurbished and now boasts 1st class facilities and comforts. The spacious lounge bar/restaurant retains its period "feel" but has been re-furnished and decorated with great taste and care. The atmosphere is warm, welcoming and friendly. Blockley Village Shop & Café (blockleyshop.com): The community owned shop and café is the hub of the village. The shop offers a wide range of basic groceries and necessities, and a tempting array of local products, including farm meat and free-range eggs, daily deliveries of local fruit and veg, freshly baked bread and locally made ready meals. Logs are generally stocked in winter. The licensed café is open all day, serving breakfasts, lunches, coffees and teas, and home-baked cakes. Take-away hot and cold food, including croissants, pastries and baguettes, is also very popular. The café, where free broadband is available, is a popular meeting place for locals and visitors of all ages.
  • Beautiful house in lovely village. Easy access to most of the sites. Highly recommend

    Richard2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Colebrook Cottage is a great place for for friends or family and it's definitely dog-friendly! The cottage was spotlessly clean, with everything we needed for the weekend and only 4 miles from Moreton-In-Marsh. If you don't want to travel, then there's really no need, with the local shop and a local pub in walking distance.

    Hazel2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • Had a wonderful weekend at this beautiful cottage! Excellent location, loved the fire place and the big kitchen with all the necessary utensils. Would definitely stay here again

    Sam2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Would highly recommend. Great with two very little ones- we wanted home comforts but to still have a break. We have been to the Cotswolds many times but Blockley seems to be one of few villages that hasn’t been discovered by the tourists yet. There is a coffee shop and store walking distance from the cottage and chipping Camden etc all a short drive away. The cottage itself is amazing from the cosy fire to the lovely kitchen which makes a lovely hub for the family to the comfiest bedrooms that make you feel right at home. We will be back again without a doubt.

  • Lovely place to stay, great facilities, big house but each room is lovely and cosy. Great kitchen/dining space. Nice and warm wehn it was freezing outside!

    Amy2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • Everything you would want for a beautiful country getaway. A warm, period house; spacious and well equipped in a great Cotswolds location. Suzanne is a thoughtful and friendly host.

    Ben2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed for four nights over Christmas. The house was perfect in every way, Cosy and warm, and spotlessly clean. The large kitchen / dining area was great as we could all (5 of us) be together while Christmas Dinner was being cooked. Beautiful location with many Cotswold towns and villages within striking distance and a very cosy and welcoming local pub less than 10 minutes walk away. Suzanne was a great host meeting us on arrival and checking all OK before we left. The house was well equipped with some thoughtful "Extra's" left for us in the fridge and cupboards. We will definitely go back if the opportunity arises. Strongly recommended.

    Paul2019-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • We spent three nights at Suzanne’s place. Very impressed with the beautiful and spacious house. She is an amazing host and made sure we had everything we needed and sent lots of very useful local information prior to our arrival. Very well equipped kitchen. The treats in the fridge when we arrived was a really nice touch. The fireplace was fantastic to have to warm us up after a day exploring the Cotswolds. Beautiful location, near all the famous sights and traditional villages, easily reached by car (plenty of parking space in front of the house). Highly recommended!

    Fernando2019-12-15T00:00:00Z
  • Suzanne is a great host; she welcomed us on our arrival. The cottage is very cosy, full of characters and well equipped, such a pleasure to spend the half term with my in-laws here in autumn. We would love to come back one summer again.

    David2019-11-03T00:00:00Z
  • This was more than a cottage in the Cotswolds...... Lovely spot for our family to gather and enjoy some of the local scenery. The local villiage was very beautiful and we enjoyed gathering round the woodburning stove of an evening. Great communication and warm welcome with the fridge part stocked with essentials when we arrived. Highly recommended.

    Roger2019-10-27T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely lovely and very spacious - a brilliant place to stay. Great location, with a pub in the village and a shortish walk to Chipping Campden.

    The Cotswolds are characterised by attractive small towns and villages, built of the underlying Cotswold stone (a yellow oolitic limestone). In the Middle Ages the wool trade made the Cotswolds prosperous and some of this money was put into the building of churches, leaving the area with a number of large handsome Cotswold stone "wool churches". The area remains affluent, which has encouraged the establishment of many high quality pubs, restaurants and antique shops.
  • Lovely cottage. All you need for a great short stay. Pretty garden, well equipped kitchen, powerful shower and toasty log burner. Simple booking and check in and out process.

    James2019-10-04T00:00:00Z
  • The cottage was spotlessly clean and well equipped having everything we could possibly need - from the most comfortable bed and fluffy towels, right down to decent sized mugs and wine glasses! The garden was safe and enclosed, perfect for our little Cavapoo puppy. It is perfectly placed for lovely walks from the doorstep or as a base for days out by car as there is so much to see and do in this area. The Churchill and The Ebrington Arms are both fabulous pubs serving amazing food and are in walking distance too. All in all it was the perfect getaway in a luxurious cottage. We just wish we could have stayed longer!

    Jacqui2019-06-03T00:00:00Z
  • We had such a wonderful stay at Perry Cottage. Thank you so much Gill for all of the thoughtful touches which made our long weekend such a treat. We really enjoyed being able to set out and explore from the front door -the local walks and pubs are fantastic. As the weather was so glorious we spent a lot of time in the beautiful, tranquil garden and our pup Oscar loved it too. We are already looking for a date to come back!

    Jenna2019-04-01T00:00:00Z
  • Would highly recommend Perry Cottage. We had a lovely week there with our dog. Lovely local walks and close to several very pretty villages all with a great choice of restaurants/pubs Perry Cottage itself was perfect

    June2019-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • We had a truly wonderful stay at Perry Cottage. Within 5 minutes of arriving, we were already looking to return! The enclosed garden was perfect for our Cavapoo and the superking bed was dreamy. Without a doubt this has been our favourite UK mini break! The cottage is equipped with everything you might need, whether you are staying for a couple of nights or a couple of weeks. The little touches such as the fresh flowers, a scrummy lemon cake and a note from Gill really made us feel welcome. We will be back very soon as we had the most perfect stay. I would highly recommend!

    Chipping Campden is one of the main market towns in the North Cotswolds, built by medieval traders with wealth created from the wool trade. With many thatched cottages, this is one of the most picturesque towns in the region. A notable feature of the town is the Market Hall which was built in 1627. Originally thought to be used in the wool trade, the main function of the hall was actually to give shelter to local cheese, poultry and butter sellers. The High Street is relatively small, taking just five minutes to walk from one end to the other, and it has a number of well-regarded eateries ranging from tea houses to dining pubs and restaurants. This main street curves in a shallow arc which is flanked on both sides by terraces of ancient houses, each house having its own embellishments. This feature of the town is one of the reasons why, in 1970, the street was officially designated as a conservation area. Chipping Campden marks one end of the Cotswolds Way which is a 102 mile National Trail linking Chipping Campden to Bath. For the majority of the trail it follows the Cotswold escarpment which gives the walker fantastic views of the surrounding scenery. The Way passes through many traditional villages and close to historical sites including Sudeley Castle near Winchcombe and Hailes Abbey. The countryside along the Way is very diverse, ranging from wildflower meadows to beech woodlands, providing visitors with perfect examples of Britain's stunning landscape. Food & Drink Chipping Campden has numerous places to eat and drink, with a range of cuisines and prices to suit most tastes and budgets.

    Broadway is a beautiful village in the North Cotswolds, steeped in history and surrounded by stunning countryside. The village gets its name from the wide street, or broad way, that runs through the centre which was once the main road from Worcester to London. This attractive High Street is bordered with chestnut trees and honey coloured stone cottages dating from the 16th century and is one of the most picturesque villages of the Cotswolds. The broad way is thought to be especially wide because at one time there used to be streams running each side of the main drive. These streams were eventually hidden in underground pipes where they would emerge at 'dipping' points, but sadly they are now almost completely invisible. The village has artistic links with famous dwellers including J.M. Barrie, Mary Anderson and William Morris, who were drawn to the tranquillity of Broadway. It was here that Morris and John Ruskin pioneered the idea of the Arts and Crafts Movement which made its home in the area and went on to be an international movement. One of the iconic features of the village is Broadway Tower which was built in the late 18th century by the Earl of Coventry. It is said that the tower was erected so that the Countess could see if her Cotswold estate was visible from Croome Court in Worcestershire, which it was. The folly stands some 1,024 feet above sea level, making it the second highest point in the Cotswolds after Cleeve Hill. In fact, on a clear day, visitors are able to see 14 counties from the top! William Morris was so taken by the tower that he went on to establish the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings in 1877.
  • I would recommend this cottage to anyone. Absolutely fantastic stay.

    Nia2020-03-02T00:00:00Z

  • Gorgeous cottage, short walk from lots of shops, cafe and pubs in a beautiful cotswolds village.

    Kate2019-10-14T00:00:00Z
  • Halfway House was exactly what we were looking for on a Cotswolds holiday. A beautiful cottage in a beautiful village, spotlessly clean and extremely comfortable. Three en-suite bedrooms with large beds, 2 very large and comfortable sofas in the lounge. Parking for 2 cars a real plus. We could not have been happier, Broadway was bustling during the day (October weekend) but sleepy and calm by night... perfect! The team at Character Cottages couldn’t have been more responsive. Halfway House is a real gem, we will absolutely be back.

    Gary2019-10-09T00:00:00Z
  • This cottage is in a perfect location in Broadway, very convenient access to all of the local shops and restaurants and even the awesome park! The entire place is very clean and comfortable. Great place to stay!

    Spencer2019-07-15T00:00:00Z
  • Great location in Broadway in Cotswolds. Short walk into centre of village. Lovely well maintained and stylish cottage.

    Gareth2018-07-02T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely cottage in super quiet location (dead-end street; no through traffic; no on-street parking), on amazingly beautiful street. Very spacious! High quality amenities (washing machine, drier, drying rack; dish washer; great double oven;great stove). Two great sofas in lounge!!! Two parking spaces provided at the back of the cottage. A tiny front garden with seating for 2 (cramped)- no outdoor space. Not an issue for us as out all day, and so many places/opportunities around to be/sit outside. Super comfortable, high quality beds/mattresses/bedding. Each bedroom has its own bathroom (1 bath, 2 showers). If all guests want to have a bath, ask the rental agency to unlock that bathroom door on the landing, so all guests can have access without having to go through the bedroom that is linked to that bathroom!!! The door was locked when we were staying- not practical... but an isdue easy to solve! The location is great for exploring the northern/central Cotswolds. Easy 45-minute drive to Birmingham Airport. Super highly recommended!!!!!

    The Cotswolds are characterised by attractive small towns and villages, built of the underlying Cotswold stone (a yellow oolitic limestone). In the Middle Ages the wool trade made the Cotswolds prosperous and some of this money was put into the building of churches, leaving the area with a number of large handsome Cotswold stone "wool churches". The area remains affluent, which has encouraged the establishment of many high quality pubs, restaurants and antique shops.
  • Woodside is a lovely cottage with great space downstairs for socialising. Very well stocked with everything you could possibly need - even cutlery for the little ones.

  • Lovely stylish room, plenty of space, tea/real coffee, small fridge and microwave, plus breakfast cereals. Very self contained and private. Lovely en-suite bathroom with walk in shower. All very clean and fresh feeling. Amazing view from the window. Thoughtfully finished with local tips, and a selection of magazines. Don't think there was a TV but this didn't worry me as I was staying locally to meet up with friends in the evening. Would recommend and hopefully will have the chance to stay again in the future.

  • We had a fab stay at Jenny’s - it has everything you might need, and is a great location to explore the Cotswolds or beyond to Stratford upon Avon. Jenny was a very friendly host, and the layout with your own entrance means it feels very private. A perfect retreat for a weekend away!

Important Customer Notice: - Special Events: Christmas, New Year and the Cheltenham Horse Racing Festival are Special Events, with bookings typically limited to weeks only from a specific start day If your dates don’t appear to fit, then please click Contact Host below to find out what options may exist for you!

    Blockley is a popular village in the Cotswolds which is found within a triangle formed by three renowned market towns: Chipping Campden to the North, Moreton-in-Marsh to the South East and Stow-on-the-Wold to the South. Being close to these three towns has led to increased footfall in the village, bringing with it good quality pubs and a lovely village shop/café. As the village is away from main roads, it avoids the heavy tourist traffic and so visitors can get a real sense of rural life, enjoying the rolling countryside which falls within the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The peaceful Blockley Brook attracts tourists and locals as a quiet place to relax in the warmer months. This brook, together with the other brook in the village, played a part in Blockley's history as there were once 12 water mills which provided work in various industries over the centuries, including silk production and flour milling. Architecturally the village has quite a different character in comparison to the rest of the North Cotswolds as it has a more similar style to that of the villages in the Stroud valley, but here they have used a more golden stone. This design is reminiscent of wealthier times as the majority of the cottages were built during the 17th and 18th century, at the height of the industrial era. A popular attraction in Blockley is Mill Dene Garden which is a partner garden of the Royal Horticultural Society. With a misty grotto, stream and seats around the mill pond, this is a lovely place to while away the time looking out for the kingfishers whilst enjoying a cream tea. Food & Drink For a relatively small village, Blockley is blessed with a number of places to eat and drink, all just a short walk from anywhere in the village. The Crown Inn (www.crownhotelblockley.co.uk): This 16th century country inn is situated in the heart of Blockley and features a restaurant serving dishes prepared with local produce, along with a bar with an open fire and a wide selection of real ales. This honey coloured historic inn is covered in Virginia creeper which turns a stunning red in Autumn. Walk inside to the scents of wood smoke from the open log fires and snuggle into a comfy chair by the fire, to view the daily papers with a coffee or something stronger. Dinner is served in the warm and friendly restaurant with lighter meals and snacks available in the bar. The Great Western Arms (https://www.hooky.co.uk/content/our-pubs/great-western-arms-blockley.ashx): The award winning Great Western Arms is the “Local” of Blockley. The “Western” as it is locally known, is a Hook Norton Brewery pub and is tenanted to Sharon Brace. It is right at the heart of the village both geographically and socially, and is where Sharon and her team serve up some of the finest food, drink and entertainment available. The pub has two rooms: one is used as the restaurant and the other houses a pool table, juke box and darts board (dogs are welcome in the pool room). The Pub has recently been extensively refurbished and now boasts 1st class facilities and comforts. The spacious lounge bar/restaurant retains its period "feel" but has been re-furnished and decorated with great taste and care. The atmosphere is warm, welcoming and friendly. Blockley Village Shop & Café (blockleyshop.com): The community owned shop and café is the hub of the village. The shop offers a wide range of basic groceries and necessities, and a tempting array of local products, including farm meat and free-range eggs, daily deliveries of local fruit and veg, freshly baked bread and locally made ready meals. Logs are generally stocked in winter. The licensed café is open all day, serving breakfasts, lunches, coffees and teas, and home-baked cakes. Take-away hot and cold food, including croissants, pastries and baguettes, is also very popular. The café, where free broadband is available, is a popular meeting place for locals and visitors of all ages.
  • The cottage is very lovely and has its characters. Lovely place and relaxing ambiance. If you would like to check in please reach before night time as it is situated on a small and steep alley way.

  • Fabulous cottage in a lovely Cotswold village

    Michelle2019-12-16T00:00:00Z
  • A stunning place to stay in a quaint village, very cosy in Winter with the fire on!

  • Great location for exploring the north Cotswolds

    Margaret2019-11-29T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely stay in the cottage - it was very cosy and had all the amenities we needed. We even had a bottle of Prosecco left for us which was a nice touch. Very clean and neat and everything looks just like in the pictures. The only thing that was not mentioned in the description was that the second room with the twin beds doesn’t have a door to the bathroom entrance which is slightly inconvenient but otherwise everything else was great. Would recommend a stay here!

  • Beautiful home, very nicely appointed, in a lovely quiet village. Loved our stay there and exploring the area.

    Harry2019-10-01T00:00:00Z
  • We had a delightful time in the quiet hamlet of Blockley. The house is warm and cosy, the furnishings are beautiful and well suited to the style of the house. It was a joy to sit in the courtyard and listen to the bells from the church nearby. The village shop is well stocked and prices are reasonable. We did the 5 mile circuit walk via Batford twice during our stay and highly recommend it (wear long pants to avoid stinging nettles). Of all the villages we visited, Blockley was the nicest to return to each day, with undulating hills and honeycomb houses decorated with climbing roses. Quintessential Cotswolds!

  • This is an amazing little cottage in a quiet village. It is exactly as pictured. The master bed was very comfortable but a little small. The main shower was very small (we had to turn the water off to wash before turning it back on again to rinse). The local cafe had very friendly safe and great coffee which we enjoyed most mornings, it’s only a few minutes walk to the cafe. Access to the property can be tricky as the lane to the parking is very very narrow. We really enjoyed our stay. The local area, village, cottage and wider area were amazing and really made our stay pleasurable. We enjoyed many day trips in the Cotswolds that were especially good for our small children.
