    “We had a wonderful week.”

    Thank you. The cottage was very comfy, the kitchen was well equipped and the garden and views were second to none. The steep stairs to the bedrooms weren’t really a problem for us except when trying to carry suitcases, but I can see this could be a real hazard for older people or those who find stairs a challenge.The ropes and lights help (particularly at night) but clearer mention of the stairs could be made on your website. ...

We loved the Blockley Community Shop, it really provided us with all we needed, as well as local plums, cherries etc on sale fresh each morning. Walk suggestions in your cottage handbook were much appreciated, and the location of the cottage is great for visiting the North Cotswolds. We look forward to returning soon.

The property

Located on the edge of one of the prettiest villages in the Cotswolds, Thrower's Cottage has been lovingly restored by its current owners and is an ideal retreat for those looking to escape into the countryside and enjoy the peace and quiet that this region has to offer.

Inside the cottage is gorgeously cute, with 2 separate seating areas to provide those moments of quiet relaxation, the lower ground floor providing a wonderful open-plan seating, dining and kitchen area, complete with the obligatory log-burning stove (starter pack of logs supplied).

Outside your enclosed garden (ideal for the very welcome pooch should you wish to bring it) gives you stunning views across the glorious Cotswolds countryside.

Please note the property has one flight of steep stairs up from the first floor to the bedrooms on the second floor.

Guests need to be aware that this is an old property and has many character features and that both bedroom doors open directly onto the steep stairs. The historic village of Blockley is very peaceful and picturesque, yet benefits from having two pubs and a community owned village shop & café, as well as a historic Norman church in the centre of the village.

Numerous beautiful country walks are accessible directly from the cottage and Blockley is well located for visiting the many beautiful towns and villages of the Cotswolds. Truly idyllic.

If you jump in your car you can be in Stratford in no time as well as the lovely local National Trust houses like Hidcote, Kiftsgate and Bourton House.

Charming and totally welcoming - you'll love this beautiful, rural retreat.

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.
