Blackwell, Broadway, Chipping Campden & surrounding area
It's not often you can say that you've spent the night in a property believed to be 1000 years old! Although some of the original features remain, Manor Cottage (as it is now known) is an historic building which today provides cracking self catering accommodation for families or groups up to six people. Formerly listed as the Chapel of St Polycarp and still in a relatively ruinous state in recent years, this now delightful cottage has undergone careful renovation to ensure that trusses, beams and original stone work are still present. The owners (who did much of the work themselves!) live next door and take great care to ensure that guests are comfortable and welcome. This is a great cottage to come and hide, in a village that is perfectly located for touring this area of the northern Cotswolds. A light airy cottage with a lovely enclosed garden and well worth a visit.

Manor Cottage is part of the Manor Farmhouse estate located on the edge of the beautiful village of Blackwell. The village is in the northern part of the Cotswolds with very good access to some of this area's attractive market towns including Chipping Campden, Broadway and Moreton in Marsh. The village is in a pretty rural area and has very easy access to walks in every direction - in fact the village is located directly on the Centenary Way walk. With views to Cotswold hills at Ilmington, it is in an area of outstanding beauty, yet within reach of local amenities.
The village of Armscote is about 15 minutes walk away and has a wonderful local pub, The Fox & Goose, with open fires and great food. Moreton in Marsh and Stratford-upon-Avon are both about eight miles away with several National Trust properties within a few miles. Either of these locations are perfect for a day trip
Shipston-on-Stour, a delightful market town with a wide range of independent shops, and Ilmington, a lovely Cotswold village with the famous Howard Arms pub with great food and atmosphere, are both 2-3 miles away. Chipping Camden, described historically as having Britain's most beautiful village street, is eight miles away.
"Having rented accommodation many times over the years – although mostly abroad – and found that it didn’t always live up to the description, we were so pleasantly surprised to find this absolutely lovely cottage, that was so comfortable and cosy it was just a total pleasure to stay there. Fell in love with the cottage in fact."Ms Nicol 2017-10-18
