Clouds Hill is perfectly located on a quiet lane, with views out over the rooftops of pretty Cotswold cottages, to the fields beyond. Despite the tranquil setting, the cottage is in the historic heart of Blockley, which is a peaceful, yet thriving village, with two pubs, a restaurant, a community owned village shop & café, and a historic Norman church. It is also the location where the Father Brown mystery series is filmed.
Built around 1850, in traditional Cotswold stone, Clouds Hill has many character features, including wooden beams, exposed stone walls, flagstone floors and a wood burning stove. Complementing these period features, the house has modern facilities, including wireless internet access, a Freesat TV and a modern, well equipped kitchen. The cottage also has an enclosed sun terrace, which looks out over the village of Blockley. The layout of the property makes Clouds Hill an ideal retreat for a family or for a group of friends.
