    “We booked a four night stay in Ashton house for a break in the north Cotswolds.”

    The house was beautifully presented and provided a lovely base to explore the area. Blockley village was a great place to stay and the house is minutes walk away from a very nice cafe and local grocery shop, as well as the picturesque Norman church. We would highly recommend Ashton House if you are looking for accommodation in the area.

The property

Nestled within the Cotswolds AONB, located in the heart of Blockley, Gloucestershire, is Ashton House, a charming and characterful three-storey dwelling.

Centrally positioned, just paces away from a hub of amenities, whilst well-positioned to explore the rolling countryside, walkways, and cycle routes throughout the heart of England, Ashton House offers a homely base for a family of six and their canine companion.

Park up on the roadside before reaching your now, Cotswolds stone home.

Be welcomed into the inviting living/dining room, where you can gather as a family around the woodburning stove, as the chef of your group becomes acquainted with the sleek kitchen.

Prepare meals and take advantage of the handy utility room, before dining altogether and planning your coming days.

For some peace and quiet, find the second-floor snug, a nook for relaxation, where you can read a good book or delve into a film night.

As your eyes tire, select between three well-appointed bedrooms; they include a stunning master king-size with a private dressing room and en-suite, a further king-size, and a second-floor twin.

Awaken to either a bath or a shower in the family bathroom, before preparing to explore Blockley, home to a post office, convenience store, and The Great Western Arms for some hearty, British cuisine.

Within the area, reach the Cotswold Falconry Centre, ideal for the whole family to experience, hike through the Bourton Woods, or travel a little further to explore Sezincote House & Garden, a stunning property, enveloped by pretty gardens.

Be sure to pack your walking gear and bikes, to tour the region by following the Macmillan Way, Heart of England Way, and the Gloucestershire Way, or for a day of sightseeing, head to Bourton-on-the-Water, where you can discover The Model Village, tour the Cotswold Motoring Museum & Toy Collection, or follow the maze at The Dragonfly Maze attraction.

Round off your trip with a visit to Cheltenham, home to the renowned Cheltenham Racecourse, and The Wilson Art Gallery and Museum, or venture further into Gloucester, for an afternoon near the docks, before taking in the beauty of Gloucester Cathedral.

Experience all of this, and more, at Ashton House.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £300.

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.
