Location description from manager

The Cotswolds region

The village of Blockley, found in the hills of the North Cotswolds between Chipping Campden and Moreton-in-Marsh, is a true gem of an English village. It's been designated as both an area of outstanding natural beauty and a conservation area, so you'll be surrounded by idyllic countryside no matter the time of year. You'll be invited to enjoy some warm and generous local hospitality thanks to the village's thriving and friendly community, and Blockley's picturesque village green provides a peaceful rest stop and entertainment thanks to the bowling green and well-kept children's area.

Blockley

A brief history of Blockley
Blockley is locally renowned for its contributions to the textile industry, at one point boasting an impressive 12 water mills along its two brooks. In the 18th and 19th centuries, these historic buildings were repurposed from silk production to a broad range of rural uses including flour milling, flax weaving, woodcutting, threshing and (to provide refreshment at the end of a long day!) cider pressing.

The village church of St Peter and St Paul has a venerable past too, dating back to 1180AD. Leaping forward to the 20th Century, Paxton House (which stands near the old Post Office) acted as the Headquarters of the American Super Six division in 1942, and military history buffs will be delighted and fascinated by the fact that General George S Patton and Eisenhower met here to organize the Normandy landings!

Local amenities
Blockley's village shop sells a range of handy groceries, newspapers, locally produced meat, fruit and vegetables, bread, pastries as well hot food, drinks and snacks thanks to the attached cafe. The shop also offers a Post Office service on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, including a Bureau du Change.
There's a great selection of places to eat and drink in the village - The Great Western Arms, The 18th century Crown Hotel and the Lower Brook Guest House all come highly recommended by visitors and locals alike.

Twice a year (usually in Spring and at the start of June) a number of gardens in the village are opened up to the public, an event well worth exploring if you're lucky enough to be in the village at the time. The gardens at Mill Dene are open from April to October and offer high tea in the afternoons.

“Cosy cottage in a nice spot”

Reviewed 3 Feb 2015

We had a lovely stay at Ropewalk Cottage over New Year. The house itself is deceptively large with four bedrooms and two bathrooms so easily accommodated our group of six adults and two babies. The front room is really cosy with a wood-burning stove and a nice space for relaxing in the evening. The village was great for nearby walks had a couple of good pubs and a village store with a cafe. Highly recommend!
