Description

Summary

Courtyard House is a lovely Cotswold stone property which sleeps four guests in two bedrooms, and benefits from two bathrooms. The cottage is bright and spacious and has a wealth of period features, including exposed oak beams and vaulted ceilings in the bedrooms. The character of the property is further enhanced by an interesting collection of antiques, ranging from wall hung tapestries to copper pots and ornate sideboards. There are modern touches throughout, including wireless internet access, a Freeview TV and a Bose Bluetooth speaker.

The beautiful courtyard garden was designed by Canadian garden landscaper Gordon Hayward, and has an outdoor table and seating for four. There is off-street parking for one car on the driveway, whilst free on-street parking can be found in the village.

Location

Courtyard House is located on a quiet lane in the picturesque village of Blockley. Despite being a small village, Blockley has two pubs, a community owned shop and café, and an historic Norman church. The village is located in a valley, with a babbling brook winding its way through, and there are numerous enjoyable countryside walks right on its doorstep.

Blockley is ideally situated for exploring the popular Cotswold market towns of Moreton-in-Marsh, Chipping Campden and Stow-on-the-Wold. It is equally well placed for trips to popular tourist destinations such as Blenheim Palace, Stratford-upon-Avon and Oxford.
