Description

Summary

Red Lion Cottage is a stunning Cotswold stone cottage, which is believed to date back to c.1750, and is located on a peaceful country lane, on the edge of the picturesque village of Blockley. The beautiful surrounding Cotswold countryside is visible from the cottage, and many lovely walks are accessible directly from the front door. Once famous for its many silk mills, Blockley is located well away from busy roads and tourist routes, yet still benefits from having two pubs and a community owned village shop & café, as well as a historic Norman church. The village is also close to the popular Cotswold market towns of Moreton-in-Marsh, Chipping Camden and Stow-on-the-Wold, as well as being well placed for trips to popular tourist destinations, such as Blenheim Palace, Stratford-upon-Avon, and Oxford.

Recently refurbished to a high standard, the owners of this grade II listed cottage have combined a warm, contemporary style with the original character features, including exposed beams, limestone flooring and a stunning inglenook fireplace with a wood burning stove. The character and style of the cottage have been complemented by modern facilities, including wireless internet access, a Freeview TV and a well presented kitchen.

Red Lion Cottage sleeps four people, in two bedrooms, with two bathrooms. There is a small garden terrace, which is perfect for catching the sun, and has glorious views of the surrounding countryside. The cottage is perfect for a family, or friends, seeking a relaxing break in the heart of the Cotswold countryside.
