“Having rented a property in Park Road many years ago I can appreciate what a good conversion Murrayfield is.”
The lovely garden is an added bonus. However I think it is worth making potential renters that parking can be an issue especially if arriving late evening. Also there is "right of way" through the garden.- Mr Me, October 2020
“This is a very fine and comfortable cottege, well placed for walking and bicycling excursions.”
It is directly on a road, but in October there was not much traffic, so it was quiet. The back garden is magnificent with a splendid view and fine location for outdoor dining in good weather. There is one shortcoming of the cottage, which could do with improvement: there is no place out front to lock up bicycles, which is a serious shortcoming in a place where so many people would be coming with bicycle excursions in mind. This could be rectified by anchoring a pair of sturdy bike-locking rings to the front facade. Because this is middle-of-terrace with no lane at the back garden, there is no way to bring bikes around to the back garden. (Evidently, it is customary for people to cut through the neighbors garden gates to haul trash bins to the end-terrace and back, but there were no instructions on this access route left with the cottage, and one doesn't want to disturb neighbors on a twice-daily basis). A related problem is that the only entrance to the cottage is from the street, leading directly into the carpeted front parlor. In muddy weather, it is impossible to get in without tracking mud into the front parlor, there is no place to sit and take off boots, and even with care it was exceedingly difficult to keep the front parlor clean. There are two nice wood-burning stoves, and wood can be purchased from the lovely village shop. The cottage would benefit from being provided with an ash bucket, and instructions as to where to put the ashes. We would be very happy to stay at Murrayfield again, and I mention the shortcomings only in the hopes that they can be corrected, which could easily be done.- Prof Pierrehumbert, September 2020
“Really enjoyed our stay in the cottage.”
Wonderful views from the garden.- Mr Kellett, August 2020
“Lovely, cosy, comfortable cottage.”
Stunning views from the main bedroom. Pretty garden out back with table and chairs for two.- Mr Pryor, July 2020
“Lovely little cottage with lovely views.”

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.
