The property

Residing in the centre of Blockley is the quaint terraced house of Bankside Cottage.

Providing a group of four with fantastic access to what the Cotswolds has to offer, Bankside Cottage is a charming setting for your next staycation.

Handy on-street parking greets you on arrival, before taking in the wonderful location the property benefits from.

As you enter the property you will find a welcoming lounge area with a Smart TV and woodburning stove to cosy up to; the room is truly a magnificent space, boasting original stonework and beams throughout.

Progress through to a kitchen that is equipped with all modern conveniences, giving you everything you need to enjoy your stay.

When the chef of the group has rustled up dinner, make your way back to the living/dining room to eat at the dining table with its roomy bench seating.

Rise to the first floor and discover a snug room, a nice, quiet spot with floral seating to enjoy a book or your morning coffee.

Continue down the corridor on the first floor to the double bedroom, a superb spot to enjoy a well-deserved rest; the room benefits from the close-by family bathroom, with its bath with an overhead shower.

The second floor is home to the master suite, a king-size bedroom with an impressive, vaulted ceiling, a Smart TV for private viewing and a handy en-suite shower room.

Head towards the outside of the property where there is an elevated terrace to the rear of the cottage with seating, allowing you to enjoy an evening drink or meal.

Your amenities are at your doorstep in Blockley, browse the local wares at the Blockley Village shop, before grabbing your essentials and making your way to The Great Western Arms for lunch.

For a day where you can immerse yourself in nature, head to the quiet village of Batsford and visit the breathtaking Batsford Aboretum and Garden Centre, stroll through Batsford Park and spend the afternoon in Bourton House & Garden.

Visit Moreton-in-Marsh's Wellington Aviation Museum for a unique experience, before viewing the town's selection of galleries, including Grimes House Gallery and Astley house Fine Art.

Bourton-on-the-Water is another great location and plays host to a handful of nature reserves where you can spot the wildlife as you enjoy an excursion; those looking for something unusual will benefit from visiting the town's Cotswold Motoring Museum & Toy Collection and The Model Village.

For a day out with difference, take the family to Gloucester and Cheltenham for days packed with landmarks and attractions; or venture further into the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty to find more outdoors delights.

A fabulous holiday is waiting to be experienced at Bankside Cottage.

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.

Please Note:
- This cottage requires a Good House-Kepping Bond of £250.00
- This is a period property, and as such the stairs are steeper than in a modern home; probably not suitable for young children or those with mobility issues
- The steps at the rear of the cottage to the elevated terrace are extremely steep, and again not suitable for anyone with mobiilty issues and children should be supervised at all times.
- Please Note: No children under the age of 10.
