    “Our booked cottage was cancelled 3 days before our visit causing a lot of stress and hours on the phone with Sykes to arrange a rehousing.”

    Our new house was a 6pm check in and 10am checkout - it does not take 8 hours to clean a tiny cottage! The cottage was lovely and had everything we needed. The cottage is located in a beautiful quiet setting in a delightful Cotswold village with a nice pub and coffee shop. However, the downstairs bathroom stank and the owners brought an air freshener for us although this did not solve the problem.

    Our new house was a 6pm check in and 10am checkout - it does not take 8 hours to clean a tiny cottage! The cottage was lovely and had everything we needed. The cottage is located in a beautiful quiet setting in a delightful Cotswold village with a nice pub and coffee shop. However, the downstairs bathroom stank and the owners brought an air freshener for us although this did not solve the problem. We stayed on one of the hottest weekends and the boiler was broken so the heating came on very high both nights causing the temperature to be unbearably hot upstairs and unsafe for our two young babies. The owners apologised but this was not fixed. This property should not have been let out with a broken boiler.

The property

A stone-built home in the charming village of Blockley, hidden among several old barns.

You will be welcomed to this historic property, which offers roomy lodging for a family reunion or group of friends to the Cotswolds, after driving down a discreet, private lane.

The property's interior exudes a warm appeal and includes a variety of historic elements that subtly represent the history of the structure.

A well-equipped open-plan kitchen, living room, and dining area awaits you after a long day of sightseeing.

It includes everything you'll need for the duration of your stay, including a dishwasher, an electric oven and hob, and a utility room that houses the washing machine.

In the sitting area, where plush sofas are waiting for you, relax on a chilly evening.

One of the two gorgeous family bathrooms, where you may take a long bath or a short, energising shower, is also located on the ground level.

You can accommodate up to six guests in the three well-appointed bedrooms, which are located upstairs and consist of two double bedrooms and a twin bedroom.

The second family bathroom, which again offers the option of a bath or a shower, continues to impress.

For your morning coffee or an evening glass of wine, the private patio in the garden at the back of the house is the perfect place to soak up the sun.

You can discover a fantastic village store and café within a 5-minute stroll, and if you don't feel like cooking, why not try the food on offer in the neighbouring pubs.

While staying here, you may keep yourself entertained by visiting the nearby Mill Dene Gardens, which is regarded as one of the Cotswolds' most attractive gardens and where you can enjoy a leisurely stroll while spotting ducks, kingfishers, and trout.

As an alternative, you could go to Snowshill Manor, a stunning 16th-century home with a magnificent garden, which is a National Trust property.

The ideal hideaway for a family vacation in the Cotswolds is Badger's Den.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.

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.
