Originally built for the workers of the many silk mills operating in the village during the mid 19th century, Foxtail Cottage sits within a charming terraced row of cottages with enviable rear views over a deer park and rolling Cotswold countryside. Lovingly renovated and fully modernised, this three storey cottage provides a perfect blend of old and new. With a stunning Cotswold stone fireplace and open fire, Aga and pretty garden with sun terrace, Foxtail Cottage is ideal for a break in the Cotswolds throughout the seasons.
At the ground level you will be greeted via an entrance hall into the impressive, dual aspect sitting and dining area with Cotswold stone inglenook fireplace, oak flooring and tasteful furnishings, perfect for retiring to when evening draws in. Downstairs at the lower ground level is a delightful surprise with a beautiful kitchen complete with Aga, leading into the light filled garden room, furnished as a second sitting room to enjoy the wonderful rear views by day and features bi-folding doors out to the decked area overlooking the pretty garden. The garden leads you down a few steps to a large sun terrace with sun loungers, a bistro set, Weber charcoal barbecue and chiminea. There are often deer in the park directly behind the sun terrace and if you are lucky, they will wander right up to the perimeter fence! The two charming first floor bedrooms are beautifully presented and will suit either two couples or a family with young children who are happy to share the double bed in the second bedroom. On this level there is also a modern shower room with a large walk-in shower.
Blockley is a delightful golden stone village, situated within the rolling hills of the North Cotswolds between Moreton-in-Marsh (with direct rail links to London Paddington) and Chipping Campden, with an abundance of walks over the surrounding countryside. Blockley's beautiful church, churchyard and vicarage are used for the filming of "Father Brown", a period BBC detective drama. The village boasts many other historic buildings including a converted water mill along the brook; a fabulous community run café and well stocked shop and two pubs within walking distance. Also nearby are Stow-on-the-Wold, Broadway, Bourton-on-the-Water and many well-known gardens including Mill Dene Gardens within the village (open during May and June).
