    Blockley is a small English village in Gloucestershire situated approximately 70 kilometres south of Birmingham in the spectacular Cotswolds. Visitors are attracted to holiday cottages in Blockley thanks to the fascinating history of the area, which involves both the wool and silk industries, and the village’s lovely green landscape and charming mill stream, which make for an enchanting getaway. The village is also the picture-perfect location for outdoor activities such as hiking and biking in the summer, or unwinding by the fire with a glass of mulled wine in winter. A Blockley holiday cottage is consequently an impeccable destination for a couple's retreat or family holiday, as you’re sure to return home regenerated and raring to go.

    Things to do

    -Hiking: Hiking (or walking if hiking sounds too strenuous!) is a great way to pass the time in Blockley, as the village boasts a number of fantastic walking trails. The “Blockley, Batsford and the Arboretum” track is a great path from which to explore the region around Blockley holiday homes, as the trail begins right near the village church before winding its way through 7.5 kilometres of beautiful farm and woodlands.

    -Tours: Blockley may be a small rural village, but in many ways its size is actually beneficial: it places a number of great attractions right at the doorstep of your holiday accommodation. Self-drive tours are another perfect way for you to explore the attractions and countryside surrounding Blockley, with websites such as “The Cotswold Gateway” even offering some great pre-thought out itineraries. There are so many different things to see and do within a short drive of Blockley that you’re certain to find something to interest you in practically every direction.

    - History: The historical sites in and around Blockley make for some extremely interesting day trips, with numerous sites from various historical eras dotting the region. Belas Knap (Neolithic), Five Whispering Knights (Bronze Age) and the Roman ruins outside Cirencester are just a taste of what is waiting to be discovered.

    -Wildlife: The Cotswold Falconry Centre is situated a mere five kilometres southeast of Blockley holiday cottages, and an absolute must if you or your family are at all interested in ornithology. This stunning avian spectacular boasts not only free-flying bird shows, but houses (and sometimes breeds) over 130 different birds, including vultures, owls, and of course, falcons!

    -Gardens: Mill Dene Garden, which occupies roughly one hectare of land on the southern side of Blockley, is one of the most fascinating (and beautiful) attractions in the village. The gardens are also a great place to take a family stroll as the fruit orchard, vegetable garden, bog garden and stone water mill are absolutely captivating. You may also like to stop in at the “Garden Room” for a light lunch or cup of tea before heading back to your holiday accommodation.
