The property

Built in approximately 1850, Clouds Hill is a beautiful Cotswold stone cottage that sleeps six guests in three bedrooms, with a family bathroom. Lovingly furnished by its owners, the cottage boasts a wealth of period features including exposed stone walls, wooden beams, flagstone floors and a cosy wood burning stove. The character of the cottage is complemented by modern facilities, including a Freesat TV, wireless internet access and a well-equipped kitchen. There is an attractive sun terrace with stunning views over the village of Blockley, and off-street parking is available for one car. Located in the charming village of Blockley, Clouds Hill is situated on a peaceful lane with views of the beautiful surrounding countryside. One of the larger villages of the Cotswolds, Blockley benefits from having two pubs and a community owned village shop & café, as well as an historic Norman church that sits in the heart of the village. It is also the location where the Father Brown mystery series is filmed. As the village is away from main roads, visitors can get a real sense of rural life, enjoying the glorious countryside, open vistas and lovely woodlands which fall within the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The peaceful Blockley Brook is a lovely spot to relax in the warmer months, and there are many stunning countryside walks on the doorstep. Blockley is found within a triangle formed by three renowned market towns: Chipping Campden to the North, Moreton-in-Marsh to the South East and Stow-on-the-Wold to the South, making it a great base to explore the region. Clouds Hill has a small entrance porch, which leads to the ground floor rooms: Dining room: With exposed stone walls, wooden beams and a gas fire. Contains a dining table and chairs for six; Kitchen: The modern, well equipped kitchen connects to the dining room, creating a nice, sociable space in which to cook. Contains a cooker, microwave, dishwasher, fridge freezer, washing machine and tumble dryer; Living room: This room has a wealth of character, with exposed stone walls, wooden beams, a limestone flagged floor and a beautiful wood burning stove, complemented by a flat screen Freesat TV and CD stereo system. Stairs lead up from the living room to the first floor landing, off which are the following rooms: Bedroom 1: With an oak floor, contains a king size bed; Bedroom 2: Twin room, with an antique polished elm floor; Bedroom 3: Twin room; Bathroom: Contains a Victorian-style clawfoot bath, with overhead shower, basin and toilet. Heading back downstairs and out of the front door, there is an enclosed sun terrace, with lovely views over Blockley to the fields beyond, with an outdoor table and chairs for six people.

About the location


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.
