About the property

Plum Tree Cottage - a cottage that sleeps 6 guests in 3 bedrooms

Welcome to Plum Tree Cottage, brought to you exclusively by Character Cottages, local specialists in stylish Cotswold holiday rentals.

Please click More Details to read about the House Rules.

Built in 1851, grade II listed Plum Tree Cottage is at the end of a row of six Cotswold stone cottages, located close to the centre of the beautiful village of Blockley. The village is a hidden gem, being set well away from major roads, yet it is large enough to have two pubs, a restaurant and a community owned shop and cafe, as well as a stunning Norman church. Blockley is well placed for exploring the surrounding countryside or visiting the many beautiful towns and villages of the North Cotswolds, as well as further afield destinations, such as Stratford-upon-Avon, Oxford or Blenheim Palace.

Plum Tree Cottage has recently been lovingly refurbished by its owner, adding contemporary style and furnishings to the traditional character of the property. The many character features include wooden beams and floors, exposed Cotswold stone walls and a wood burning stove. The character of the cottage is complemented by its modern facilities, including wireless internet access, two flatscreen TVs and a contemporary kitchen.

The cottage sleeps a maximum of six people, in three bedrooms, with two bathrooms. There is a large garden, with lovely views across the valley that Blockley sits in, and free on street parking is readily available. Plum Tree Cottage is an ideal property for friends or a family, looking for a peaceful break in a lovely village.

House Rules

Booking and payment

Security deposits are not required (please note that guests are still liable for any damage or additional cleaning required as a result of their actions).

Occupancy

The maximum occupancy of the property, including its grounds, 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.

Infants who sleep in a cot do not count towards the occupancy figure, however, due to space restrictions, the occupancy figure may only be exceeded by up to two additional infants.

Pets

Regrettably, pets are not accepted.

Bed linen and towels

Bed linen and towels are provided for guests.

There is a wood burning stove in the living room and logs are provided under a fair usage policy (there is an honesty box for contributions towards the cost of logs used). Please note that free logs are normally available, but, on occasion, there may be situations when the previous guests have used up all the logs and the log supply cannot be replenished immediately.

Services provided

The property has free wireless internet access and two flatscreen TVs, one with a DVD player. A telephone is also provided, with an honesty box for the cost of calls made (there is an international bar on the telephone).

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

Initial consumables

A small quantity of initial consumables is provided for your convenience (eg. tea, coffee, sugar, dishwasher tablets, washing up liquid, soap, washing powder, toilet rolls, etc), however, you should not expect the quantity of these provisions to be sufficient for the duration of your stay.

Accessibility, health and safety

This is an old, Grade II listed property and has many character features, including narrow and steep stairs, some low beams, multiple floors and a number of steps from the back door to the top of the garden, 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 the property.

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.

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.
