Summary

Colebrook Cottage is a superb Grade II listed property which sleeps six guests, in three spacious bedrooms, with three bathrooms. Formerly the old Blockley Police Station, the property has a wealth of character features including exposed beams, exposed Cotswold stone walls and the old prison cells themselves, now renovated into a shower room and utility area.

The property has been finished to a high standard with elegant furnishings and modern facilities including wireless internet access, two Smart TVs and a well-equipped kitchen with underfloor heating. The kitchen boasts a large glass roof lantern which floods the room with natural light, and between the living and dining room there is an impressive double sided fireplace with a roaring wood burning stove which can be enjoyed from both rooms.

Location

Peacefully situated in the picturesque village of Blockley, Colebrook Cottage is surrounded by the stunning countryside of the North Cotswolds. This quaint village benefits from having two country inns, a community owned village shop and café which serves delicious food during the day, a historic Norman church, Mill Dene Gardens and a children’s playground, a wonderful spot for family picnics.

Blockley is well placed for exploring the delightful towns and villages of the Cotswolds region, as well as the numerous tourist attractions this area has to offer. Batsford Arboretum is on the outskirts of the neighbouring town of Moreton-in-Marsh, with 56 acres of glorious parkland to explore, and the market towns of Chipping Campden and Stow-on-the-Wold are just a short drive away, home to a range of independent shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants.
