Summary

Jackdaw Cottage is a honey coloured, traditional Cotswold stone cottage, the first of a row of three cottages on a quiet lane, close to the heart of the village of Blockley. The historic village of Blockley is very peaceful and picturesque, yet benefits from having two pubs, a restaurant, and a community owned village shop & café. There is also a historic Norman church in the centre of the village and numerous beautiful country walks are accessible directly from the cottage.

The cottage has recently been refurbished by its owners, to enhance its cosy feel. Traditional character features, such as wooden beams and a large stone fireplace with wood burning stove, are complemented by modern facilities, including wireless internet access, a Smart TV and a well presented kitchen.

Blockley

Blockley is a peaceful, charming Cotswold village, with raised pavements, a splendid church and some superb architecture strung out along the mile long High Street. Known by many locals as the 'secret village', Blockley is well away from main roads and in some parts of the village the only noise is Blockley Brook, the mill stream that winds its way through the bottom of the valley.

Surrounded by beautiful countryside and with many very enjoyable walks leading from the village, Blockley has much to offer the holidaymaker. Its attractive village green overlooks the popular Bowling Green and beautiful Norman Church, and is a pleasant place to enjoy a picnic on sunny days.

Moreton-in-Marsh

Moreton-in-Marsh is one of the principal market towns in the North Cotswold, situated on the Fosse Way and served by the main line railway from London Paddington. The town was granted its market charter in 1227 and there still is a busy Tuesday market, with about 200 stalls attracting many visitors.

Moreton has been a traveller's town for at least 1700 years and was used as a coaching station before the coming of the Oxford to Worcester railway in 1853. The oldest building is likely to be the 16th century Curfew tower on the High Street, whose bell was rung nightly until 1860 to remind people of the risk of fire. The High Street has many elegant 17th and 18th century inns and houses, including the Redesdale Market Hall in the centre of the town.

Moreton has a wide range of pubs, inns, hotels, tea shops and restaurants.

Stow-on-the-Wold

Sitting elegantly in the middle of the world famous Cotswold’s countryside, Stow-on-the-Wold is the quintessential English market town. Stow is a natural and historic meeting place, with a fine selection of 16th century Cotswold stone shops, luxury hotels, chic bistros, inns, elegant manor house hotels and cosy teashops.

Along with Moreton-in-Marsh and Bourton-in-the-Water, Stow is one of the best known of the small Cotswold towns. It is the highest point in the Cotswold's, standing on top of an 800 feet hill, and is situated at the meeting place of seven roads, including the Roman Fosse Way, which runs from Exeter to Lincoln in an almost straight line.

The Cotswolds

The Cotswolds are a range of hills in west-central England, sometimes called the 'Heart of England'. The name Cotswold means 'sheep enclosure in rolling hillsides”.

The Cotswolds are characterised by attractive small towns and villages, built of the underlying Cotswold stone (a yellow oolitic limestone). In the Middle Ages the wool trade made the Cotswolds prosperous and some of this money was put into the building of churches, leaving the area with a number of large handsome Cotswold stone 'wool churches'. The area remains affluent, which has encouraged the establishment of many high quality pubs, restaurants and antique shops.

Cotswold towns include Bourton-on-the-Water, Broadway, Burford, Chipping Norton, Cirencester, Moreton-in-Marsh, Northleach, Stow-on-the-Wold, Stroud and Winchcombe.

Food & drink

For a relatively small village, Blockley is blessed with a number of places to eat and drink, all just a short walk from anywhere in the village:

•The Crown Inn

•The Great Western Arms

•Lower Brook House

•Blockley Village Shop & Café

There are many excellent places to eat and drink in the wider North Cotswolds area, with the major towns of Stow-on-the-Wold, Bourton-on-the-Water, Moreton-in-Marsh, Chipping Campden, Broadway, Burford and Chipping Norton containing a wide variety of tea shops, pubs and restaurants, catering for most tastes and budgets. There are also many traditional Cotswold pubs located in the lovely villages throughout the North Cotswolds.

Activities

The list below is a very small sample to give you a flavour for the wide range of attractions and activities that are available in and around the Cotswolds. Tourist Information centres are located in all the main North Cotswold towns.

•Blenheim Palace

•Warwick Castle
