About Honeysuckle Cottage

Honeysuckle Cottage is as beautiful as its name implies. Built from the golden coloured stone that characterises the best sort of traditional Cotswold cottages, it is on a quiet lane in Blockley village within walking distance of the village shop and two excellent pubs, The Great Western Arms and The Crown Hotel. The charming cottage is ideal for couples or small families as it sleeps three guests in two bedrooms.

Blockley is somewhat of a local Cotswold secret. Blockley manages to miss the hordes of tourists which descend on places like Bourton-on-the-Water and Upper Slaughter, thanks to its location away from major roads, yet with its honey stone buildings, medieval church and calming brook, it is no less charming than it’s better-known neighbours. Many of the buildings, including Honeysuckle Cottage, date from the 1600s and 1700s when the village was a part of the prospering wool and silk industries.

There are some wonderful footpaths around Blockley, taking ramblers across the sort of countryside that has inspired poets and artists for generations. There is a waymarked trail that covers four and a half miles between Blockley and Batsford, passing the entrance to Batsford Arboretum. For more of a challenge, tackle a stretch of the long-distance Cotswold Way which starts at Chipping Campden and reaches over 100 miles to Bath.

Chipping Campden is only three miles away - close enough to walk or cycle if you do not want to drive. It has some excellent shops selling locally produced food and drink in buildings dating back to the 1300s. Moreton in Marsh is just over three miles from Honeysuckle Cottage, and Broadway, Stow-on-the-Wold and Bibury are all within easy reach. Nearby attractions include Chastleton House, the Cotswold Falconry Centre, Hidcote Gardens and Mill Dene Gardens. Further afield, you can spend the day exploring Bath, with its magnificent Georgian architecture and ancient Roman baths, Blenheim Palace, Cotswold Farm Park, Snowshill Manor, Stratford-on-Avon (why not take in a production at the Royal Shakespeare Company?), magnificent Warwick and Oxford city centre with its dreaming spires.

It is always the perfect time of year for a holiday in the Cotswolds. Visit in the spring and summer when the hedgerows are bursting with colour and life, in the autumn when the rust-coloured leaves decorate the ground, or in winter when a walk through the frost-tipped landscape is only bettered by warming up in front of a log-burning stove afterwards.

Location (The Cotswolds)

Accommodation Comprises:

Honeysuckle Cottage retains many original features including exposed beams and stone walls. The owners will make you feel welcome with a fresh cake, tea, coffee, milk and sugar.

Downstairs:

  • A log burning stove is a focal point of the charming sitting room, which is a comfortable space where you can relax and put your feet up. There is a television with a DVD player, WiFi and a good choice of books and games for guests to use during their stay.
  • Bespoke country kitchen which looks traditional yet is completely practical for today's guests. It features a pine Welsh dresser and Belfast sink, as well as an electric AGA oven, dishwasher and microwave.

Upstairs:

  • Master bedroom with a lovely double bed that has been made even more romantic with a patchwork quilt. The room also has bedside tables and reading lights.
  • Single room which is perfect for an adult or a child. It also has a patchwork bedspread and a cosy, country-cottage appeal.
  • Bathroom with both a walk-in shower and a deep bath, as well as a WC and handbasin. It has recently been refurbished so although it looks perfectly in tune with the age of the cottage, you will never run out of hot water!

Outside: At the end of the south-facing courtyard is a separate utility room with a combined washer/dryer. The cottage has a designated parking space on the lane, with further parking available on the lane opposite the cottage.

Additional Information: The cottage has gas central heating and WiFi. All utilities, linen and towels are included. Two well-behaved dogs welcome (more by arrangement with the owner). Short breaks are possible, depending on availability. No smoking or candles are allowed at Honeysuckle Cottage. The peak rate refers to Christmas and New year.
