  • Dermot

    “The steepness of the staircase and access out of and into the bedrooms was precarious and not accurately described.”

    The outside furniture was dirty and tatty, and insufficient for a 4 person stay at the property. A second front door key should have been provided to allow separate couples east access. Keys should be on a key ring. Otherwise the cottage was well situated a short walk from facilities, and generally in good order.

    Thank you for your feedback. We hope that the issues you encountered did not leave a lasting impact on your stay. With regards to the stairs, it is mentioned in the property description that these are steep and may not be suitable for young children. This can also be seen in the photos on the listing as well. The garden furniture will be deep cleaned so that future guests do not experience the same disappointment, and we appreciate the suggestion to provide a second key, as well as having the keys on a key ring. These suggestions for improvement will be taken into full consideration. We are happy to hear that you generally enjoyed your stay and would be happy to welcome you back to the property in the future. Property Owner

About the location

BLOCKLEY

Moreton-in-Marsh 3 miles; Bourton-on-the-Water 11 miles; Cheltenham 22 miles.

An ancient village once famous for its silk and corn mills, Blockley lies just 3 miles from Moreton-in-Marsh and features a unique collection of honey-coloured buildings with a pretty village green, two excellent pubs, serving hearty food and real ale, as well as a village store and café, serving dinner on a Friday night. Many walks and cycle rides through the beautiful rolling countryside of the Cotswolds can be enjoyed from the centre of the village, with the Macmillan Way, Heart of England Way and the Gloucestershire and Monarch's Way all running close by. Very close by, Moreton-in-Marsh boasts many elegant 18th century buildings and is home to traditional inns, tea rooms, restaurants and individual shops to suit all tastes. It also offers its own train station and lies on the intersection of the Paddington rail line from London. The town hosts the Moreton-In-Marsh Show, one of the UK's largest one-day agricultural shows, as well as the Moreton Beer Festival, an annual French Market, and a large outdoor market every Tuesday. The highest town in the Cotswolds, this ancient market town has played host to many fairs since the 12th century and today holds a biannual Gypsy Horse Fair, craft fairs and monthly farmers' market. Close by is Bourton-on-the-Water, which lies in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is known as the Venice of the Cotswolds as the River Windrush runs through the centre. Also within reach is the spa town of Cheltenham, boasting an incredible range of shops, cinemas, theatres, restaurants and pubs, as well as being famous for its horseracing festival in March, culminating in the Gold Cup steeplechase. Oxford, Stratford-upon-Avon, Bath, Worcester and the waterfront city of Gloucester are also within driving distance, making Blockley a great base for a Cotswolds holiday.

Note: Dogs: we ask that dogs remain downstairs, stay off the furniture and that no trace of a dog remains after your departure, a gated sleeping area has been built in the dining room especially for dogs, although the garden is enclosed, inquisitive dogs could jump the wall at the bottom of the garden and dogs are not permitted to be left alone in the property.

Note: Logs for the woodburning stove are provided between October and March; guests must purchase their own outside of these months.

Note: Guests with young children should be aware that the bedrooms on the first-floor open directly onto the steep staircase which leads down to the first floor and may not be suitable for young children.

Note: The garden is maintained by a professional gardening service every Thursday; this work will be completed as quickly as possible and with as little disturbance as possible to guests.
