Cottage | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 10
Up a little footpath, Blandfords nestles peacefully in its sunny south facing garden. There are 4 bedrooms, 2 shower rooms and a bathroom in this little gem of a house as well as a gorgeous, atmospheric sitting room with a massive inglenook and roaring log fire.
An all weather cottage, it is cosy in the winter and a delight in the summer when the doors of the conservatory can be thrown open onto the decking.
You enter the house via the porch where logs are stacked for the log burner. The door opens directly into the sitting room where the comfy chairs and sofabed are grouped around the inglenook fireplace. A few steps take you down into the well equipped kitchen and French doors lead from there into the conservatory dining room. There is a ground floor bedroom with an ensuite shower room. Upstairs are three more bedrooms: one a family room with zip and link beds, a single and a smaller under bed. There is a double bedroom with zip and link beds that shares a shower room with the family bedroom. The master bedroom, at the end of the corridor looks south over the valley and west over the garden and has its own ensuite bathroom.

For many years, Blandfords was my family's Friday afternoon destination. We would jump in the car and hurry up the motorway as fast as we could to get there.
When I opened the door to my beloved cottage, my spirits would lift every time and all the pressures of a stressful life evaporated. It is still a welcoming haven, a pretty 4 bedroomed cottage with a wonderful open feel and a flexible, comfortable layout.

The Central England/Cotswolds region
The honey coloured stone buildings that make up the distinctive architecture of the Cotswolds are famous the world over and the villages of the North Cotswolds heave with visitors the year round.
The South Cotswolds which, we like to think are more beautiful, are less touristy but still offer the traveller plenty to enjoy.
All the traditional country pursuits are readily available with large doses of culture and shopping thrown in for good measure.
Stroud, Cheltenham, Cirencester, Tewkesbury, Tetbury and Bath are a short drive away.
Oxford and Stratford are a little further but still easy to get to and from within a day.
If you like trees, take a trip to Westonbirt Arboretum. Lovely at any time of the year, it is particularly beautiful, I think, in the autumn.
Country fairs, music festivals, cheese rolling and the like abound.
