Description

Summary

Jackdaw Cottage is a traditional honey-coloured Cotswold stone cottage which sleeps 4+1 guests, in two bedrooms (with the +1 option being a sofa bed in the snug), with a family bathroom. Lovingly refurbished by its owners, the cottage boasts a wealth of character features including exposed wooden beams, original terracotta tiling and a large stone fireplace with a wood burning stove. Modern facilities such as wireless internet access, a Smart TV with Freesat and a DVD player and a well-equipped kitchen complement the period features, and there is a pretty courtyard at the front of the property and off-street parking for one car is available.

Location

Jackdaw Cottage sits peacefully on a quiet lane close to the heart of the chocolate box village of Blockley, one of the larger villages of the Cotswolds. This historic and peaceful village benefits from having two well-regarded pubs, a community owned village shop & café, as well as a Norman church and a children’s playground. Also tucked away in the village is Mill Dene Garden, an English country garden spanning two and a half acres with a misty grotto, beautiful mill pond and fruit garden.

Blockley is surrounded by rolling countryside which forms part of the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with plenty of walks on its doorstep to enjoy. The village is ideally situated for exploring the many lovely towns and villages of the North Cotswolds, including Moreton-in-Marsh, Chipping Campden and Ebrington, home to the award-winning Ebrington Arms. Popular tourist destinations such as Blenheim Palace, Stratford-upon-Avon and Oxford are also within easy reach for day trips.
