Cottage with woodburner,

Set in the heart of Blockley, Bankside Cottage is a gorgeous 17th century home perfect for a getaway to the Cotswolds. Situated in an elevated position, a family of four can enjoy stunning views of the beautiful surrounding countryside from their front door! As you enter the cottage, you will find yourself in a cozy lounge equipped with a wood-burning stove (perfect for those chilly Autumn evenings), a relaxing dining area, and sofas where you can curl up and catch up with the day's events. Moving through to the kitchen, you will find a stunning and contemporary area filled with all modern conveniences, allowing you to prepare any meals you wish to have throughout your stay. As you rise to the first floor, the history and quirky charm of this lovely cottage becomes ever more apparent (please be aware that these stairs are steeper than you might normally encounter, and are not suitable for anyone with limited mobility). On the first floor, you will find a double bedroom enjoying glorious views of the countryside around the village, as well as a modern family bathroom. The first floor is also home to a relaxing snug, the perfect spot for a bit of 'me' time! Moving up to the second floor you will find the master suite, with a king-size bed and sumptuous en-suite shower room, adding a real touch of luxury to an already gorgeous cottage. The outside space is located to the rear of the cottage, accessed through the kitchen, this space consists of a number of terraces rising up the steep hills; the first terrace provides a lovely sun-trap, where you can enjoy a morning coffee, an evening glass of wine or a spot of al-fresco dining. Being based in the centre of the village, you are just yards away from the friendly village shop-cum-cafe, and the two pubs, both of which serve traditional pub grub. Take a wander around this lovely village and you will see signs of its commercial heritage as a major centre of the silk spinning industry; more recently it has been used as the location for the filming of the Father Brown' TV series, and the actors can often be seen wandering the streets of the village. Alternatively travel just three miles to the lovely village of Chipping Campden, home to the Cotswold Olimpick Games, which are believed to have started in 1652, and which feature such pastimes as shin-kicking and dwile flonking! Travel a little further and you will find yourself in Broadway, where you can wander up to Broadway Tower and marvel at the beauty of the magnificent views. A few miles more and you will discover Stow-on-the-Wold. One of the best-known towns within the Cotswolds for its rich history in annual fairs. Make the most of your location and venture into the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty to find a wealth of outdoor activities. Bankside Cottage is the perfect retreat to the Cotswolds.
