Summary

Bobby Jo’s is a delightful home away from home which sleeps four guests, in two spacious bedrooms, with two ensuite bathrooms. Built in 2017, this bright and airy property has a number of modern facilities including wireless internet access, two Smart TVs, a well-equipped kitchen and underfloor heating in the main living areas. Fabulous bi-fold doors bathe the living area in natural light, and a variety of artwork adorns the walls, with further personal touches including stained glass windows handmade by the owner. There is a beautiful garden at the rear with far-reaching views, and off-street parking is available for up to three cars.

Location

Bobby Jo’s is situated in the peaceful village of Blockley, a picturesque location which benefits from having two popular country pubs, a community owned village shop & café, a children’s playground and a historic Norman church. Blockley Brook flows through the village and once had 12 watermills lining its banks, bringing wealth to the area during the height of the wool industry. One of these mills is owned by the Dare family who created Mill Dene Garden which is now open to the public and features a misty grotto, mill pond and showcases gorgeous flowers in bloom.

Blockley falls within the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with many rewarding walks and cycle routes available on its doorstep. The Monarch’s Way long distance walking trail passes through the village and can be followed either north to Chipping Campden or up and over the ridge towards Moreton-in-Marsh, skirting the fringes of Batsford Arboretum. Blockley is well-placed for exploring the many charming towns and villages of the North Cotswolds including Stow-on-the-Wold, Bourton-on-the-Water and Broadway, all home to a number of independent shops, tempting tearooms, pubs and restaurants. Further afield destinations such as Stratford-upon-Avon, Oxford and Bath are also within easy reach for day trips.
