About the property

Clouds Hill - a cottage that sleeps 6 guests in 3 bedrooms

Welcome to Clouds Hill, brought to you exclusively by Character Cottages, local specialists in stylish Cotswold holiday rentals.

Clouds Hill is perfectly located on a quiet lane, with views out over the rooftops of pretty Cotswold cottages, to the fields beyond. Despite the tranquil setting, the cottage is in the historic heart of Blockley, which is a peaceful, yet thriving village, with two pubs, a restaurant, a community owned village shop & cafe, and a historic Norman church. It is also the location where the Father Brown mystery series is filmed.

Please click More Details to read about the House Rules.

Built around 1850, in traditional Cotswold stone, Clouds Hill has many character features, including wooden beams, exposed stone walls, flagstone floors and a wood burning stove. Complementing these period features, the house has modern facilities, including wireless internet access, a Freesat TV and a modern, well equipped kitchen. The cottage also has an enclosed sun terrace, which looks out over the village of Blockley. The layout of the property makes Clouds Hill an ideal retreat for a family or for a group of friends.

The cottage sleeps up to six people, in three bedrooms, with one bathroom.

House Rules

Booking and payment

Character Cottages is a marketing agency and we do not own or manage any of the cottages listed on our website. Bookings made via us form a legal agreement directly between you and the property owner.

For bookings commencing more than 10 weeks in advance, a 30% non-refundable deposit is required to confirm the booking. The balance payment is then due 10 weeks prior to arrival.

All payments are made subject to the cancellation policy set out in the standard Booking Conditions.

Security deposits

A security deposit of £150 is payable to the property owners, which is returned by the owner after the letting period, subject to a property inspection. For the avoidance of doubt, guests are requested to leave the property in a reasonable condition, consistent with the property's appearance upon arrival. In the event that the owners, or their appointed housekeepers, have to spend additional time tidying up after your departure, then the cost of this extra time may be deducted from your security deposit.

Guests are specifically requested not to move furniture, or beds, around within the property and material failure to abide by this rule may result in a deduction from the security deposit.

For UK based guests, the owner's preferred payment method is via a cheque (for arrival dates more than 14 days in advance). Overseas guests must pay the deposit via Paypal. Further details of how to pay the security deposit will be provided with your pre-arrival information.

Occupancy

The maximum occupancy of the property is six guests, at any point during your stay. Unauthorised over occupancy is a breach of our terms and conditions and may result in the cancellation of your booking and additional charges. Please consult us prior to booking if you wish to discuss the possibility of having more than six guests at the property.

Pets

Clouds Hill accepts up to three dogs, at a cost of £25 per week per dog.

For the comfort of future guests, we ask that dogs remain downstairs, stay off the furniture and that no trace of a dog remains after your departure.

Bed linen and towels

Bed linen, bath towels and hand towels are provided for guests.

Arrival and departure times

Arrival time at Clouds Hill is between 3pm and 4pm on a Saturday. You will be met by the owners upon arrival and we therefore request that you contact them in advance, to agree your specific arrival time.

Departure time is by 10am.

Bed sizes and configurations

Bedroom 1: King size bed;

Bedroom 2: Two single beds;

Bedroom 3: Two single beds.

Fuel and logs

To cover a proportion of the cost of the electricity and gas used at the property, a fuel supplement of £25 per week is payable for breaks between November and March. Logs for the wood burning stove can be purchased locally.

Blockley is in a valley and guests should be aware that mobile phone reception can be very poor.

Child friendly facilities

A travel cot (without linen) and a booster seat are provided.

Initial consumables

Toilet rolls and cleaning products are provided. Guests should bring all the other consumables that they will require with them.

Accessibility, health and safety

Clouds Hill is an old property and has narrow and steep stairs, which could pose difficulty to guests with limited mobility, or carrying babies, both in terms of their general movement and their ability to quickly exit the house in the event of an emergency.

The smoke and CO detectors operate on a sound only basis and, therefore, those who have serious impairment of hearing may not be able to hear the alarm systems and could be at risk.

Smoking

No smoking is permitted throughout Clouds Hill and the owner politely requests that guests do not bring any candles, or other similar products into the cottage.

Hen and Stag parties

Hen and Stag parties are not allowed at Clouds Hill.

Corporate and commercial bookings

Unfortunately, this property does not accept corporate, work related or commercial bookings of any kind.

Photographs

In order to provide you with as much detail of our properties as possible, we sometimes use wide angle photography, which can make certain rooms, or spaces, appear larger than they actually are. Wherever possible, we try to include a floorplan, with detailed dimensions of rooms and areas. If you have any queries regarding the size of any rooms or spaces, please do not hesitate to contact us.

The owners of Clouds Hill are proud supporters of www.giveustime.org.uk, which provides holidays to servicemen and their families, to help them adjust to life after combat.

Other Activities:

Blockley is a popular village in the Cotswolds which is found within a triangle formed by three renowned market towns: Chipping Campden to the North, Moreton-in-Marsh to the South East and Stow-on-the-Wold to the South. Being close to these three towns has led to increased footfall in the village, bringing with it good quality pubs and a lovely village shop/café.

As the village is away from main roads, it avoids the heavy tourist traffic and so visitors can get a real sense of rural life, enjoying the rolling countryside which falls within the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The peaceful Blockley Brook attracts tourists and locals as a quiet place to relax in the warmer months. This brook, together with the other brook in the village, played a part in Blockley's history as there were once 12 water mills which provided work in various industries over the centuries, including silk production and flour milling.

Architecturally the village has quite a different character in comparison to the rest of the North Cotswolds as it has a more similar style to that of the villages in the Stroud valley, but here they have used a more golden stone. This design is reminiscent of wealthier times as the majority of the cottages were built during the 17th and 18th century, at the height of the industrial era.

A popular attraction in Blockley is Mill Dene Garden which is a partner garden of the Royal Horticultural Society. With a misty grotto, stream and seats around the mill pond, this is a lovely place to while away the time looking out for the kingfishers whilst enjoying a cream tea.

Car: Blockley is easily accessed by car, being located approximately 1 mile away from the A44 and approximately 3 miles away from the A429 (Fosse Way), which are two of the main roads through the North Cotswolds.

Train: The nearest railway station to Blockley is Moreton-in-Marsh (approximately 3 miles away), which has regular, direct services to London Paddington, with a typical journey time of approximately 90 minutes.

Plane: Birmingham International Airport: 42 miles, approximately 60 minute drive; Heathrow International Airport: 76 miles, approximately 90 minute drive; Bristol International Airport: 75 miles, approximately 90 minute drive.
