Make a holiday cottage in Blockley your home away from home

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.

Weather in Blockley

Blockley, as with the rest of the Cotswold district, experiences warm summers and mild winters, which makes the summer months the best time to visit the area. A holiday cottage in Blockley is also a great place to spend the winter, however, especially if you’re looking for a relaxing destination where you can put your feet up and forget about the bustle of city life.

Travel to Blockley

Blockley is relatively easy to reach via a combination of train (to the Moreton-in-Marsh Rail Station) and bus (to the Blockley village green) travel. Most people find that hiring a car or driving yourself is preferable, however, as you can then utilise your vehicle to visit some of the fantastic sights located around the village. Regardless of how you choose to get to Blockley though, you are guaranteed to feel stress-free within minutes of your arrival.

Lovely house - but turn the heating up please!

4 of 5
We stayed in Norman Chapel with our friends for two nights during February half term. It's a lovely house with plenty of room, but ... TOO COLD! The kitchen is a good size, but the freezing cold tiled floor makes you not want to spend too much time in there. There is a notice next to the heating control panel asking you not to alter the timed settings so that the heating comes on from 6am - 10am, and 4pm - 10pm. It is possible to alter this to constant (although you are requested not to), but we could not find a way of increasing the temperature. It was only on our second night in the property that we noticed the thermostat on the dining room wall, and saw that the temperature had been set to 15 degrees. 15 degrees!!! In February!!! We probably ought to have noticed this thermostat before we did, but it doesn't seem to be mentioned anywhere, and I think anyone would consider this level of heating during a cold spell quite mean. Especially as the rent is certainly not cheap. There are two woodburners in the property. Only enough wood was left for one, and this burned through fairly quickly on the first evening, although didn't give out much heat. There was a notice that more wood could be purchased, but why not just provide what is needed to be comfortable when people are staying in the Winter? The downstairs shower is a good size, but the water pressure is not very good. Overall, a nice, clean property, and we really enjoyed staying with our friends in such a lovely area, but the owners frugality with the heating when we were staying there with children did detract from the experience. I hope others staying during cold weather will find the thermostat sooner than we did!

Brilliant accommodation, fantastic and accommodating host and a wonderful village to explore. Could not have asked for more for a weekend away with good friends. Would return in a heartbeat.
