Clematis Cottage is cosy and welcoming and ideal for a couple wanting to retreat or explore the beautiful surrounding countryside. Built of Cotswold stone, with beamed ceilings, original flag stone floors, wooden floors and a wealth of traditional features.
The cottage is perfectly situated towards the edge of Blockley, yet only a few minutes’ walk to the village shop and café, and the pubs. At the same time there are many walks into the countryside straight from the front door. The accommodation has three floors and a delightful, enclosed garden. There is parking on the road next to the cottage or in the large car park opposite.
Blockley, lying only a few miles from Moreton-in Marsh and Chipping Campden, is a delightful, typical Cotswold village with twisting roads and secret passages to clusters of houses that lie higgledy piggledy throughout this village which was once a silk manufacturing centre. Unlike many other villages Blockley is very much alive with a primary school, WI, horticultural society, church, bowling green, sports club and others adding to a vibrant social setting. The community run village shop is a hub and the café next door offers special dining events.
