Location

Spring Cottage is situated in the peaceful village of Blockley, a picturesque village which benefits from having two popular country pubs, a community owned village shop & café, a children’s playground and a historic Norman church. Blockley Brook flows through the village and once had 12 watermills lining its banks, bringing wealth to the area during the height of the wool industry. One of these mills is owned by the Dare family who created Mill Dene Garden which is now open to the public and features a misty grotto, mill pond and gorgeous flowers in bloom.

Blockley falls within the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with many delightful walks and cycle routes available on its doorstep. The Monarch’s Way long distance walking trail passes through the village and can be followed either north to Chipping Campden or up and over the ridge towards Moreton-in-Marsh, skirting the fringes of Batsford Arboretum. Blockley is well-placed for exploring the many charming towns and villages of the North Cotswolds including Stow-on-the-Wold, Bourton-on-the-Water and Broadway, all home to a number of independent shops, tempting tearooms, pubs and restaurants. Further afield destinations such as Stratford-upon-Avon, Oxford and Bath are also within easy reach for day trips.
