Situated a short walk from Dovedale Woods, Beckwood is a converted 17th century silk mill providing accommodation over four floors. The enchanting garden has a mill stream bubbling through it, sun deck and lawn shaded by attractive apple trees.
Blockley is a delightful golden stone village, situated in the rolling hills of the North Cotswolds between Moreton-in-Marsh with direct rail links to London Paddington. The village has a unique collection of buildings reflecting its past glory of mills and silk production. It is a peaceful, charming village with a friendly community, centred round the café and well stocked shop.
There are an abundance of walks over the beautiful countryside. There are two pubs within walking distance (including the Great Western Arms), interesting shops and a variety of restaurants in the nearby villages and towns. A highly recommended pub is The Plough in Stretton-on-Fosse, a 10 minute drive.
