Brook Cottage is one of the most idyllically situated properties in the Cotswolds, sitting on a quiet lane overlooking fields, with only the soothing sound of the babbling brook outside to break the silence. Despite the tranquil setting, the cottage is in the historic heart of Blockley, which is a peaceful, yet thriving village, with two pubs, a community owned village shop & café, a historic Norman church and a childrens' playground. Blockley has numerous beautiful walks on its doorstep and is well located for exploring the many beautiful market towns and villages of the North Cotswolds, as well as further afield places, such as Stratford-upon-Avon, Blenheim Palace and Oxford.
Parts of Brook Cottage are believed to date back to the 17th century, with the majority of the Grade II listed cottage built in the mid-19th century. The cottage has been beautifully refurbished and retains many character features, including a stunning inglenook fireplace, stone mullion windows, wooden beams and ledge and brace doors. Complementing these period features, the house has modern facilities, including wireless internet access, a TV and a beautiful new kitchen.
The cottage sleeps up to four people, in two bedrooms, both containing double beds. There is a bathroom and a separate toilet. The cottage also has a fully enclosed garden, accessed from the kitchen. The layout of the property makes Brook Cottage an ideal retreat for one or two couples, or a small family.
Walking along Blockley Brook leads you to Brook Cottage’s front door, which opens into:
Living room: A cosy, beautifully furnished room, with a stone mullion window with window seat, wooden beams, a large inglenook fireplace and a flat-panel TV. The living room is also used for dining and it contains an extendable dining table, with seating for up to four people.
The living room then leads into:
Kitchen: For a small cottage, the beautifully decorated kitchen is very well equipped, including a cooker with hob, microwave, dishwasher, fridge, freezer and washer dryer.
Returning to the living room, a narrow, steep staircase leads up to a small first floor hallway, off which is:
Bedroom 1: A cosy bedroom, with exposed beams and brickwork, containing a double bed next to the stone mullion window, which looks out to fields and the brook below. The main bathroom is accessed via bedroom 1 and this contains a bath with handheld shower attachment, basin and toilet.
The staircase continues up into the gable of the house, opening out to:
Bedroom 2: Another cosy double bedroom, with exposed beams and a stone mullion window, bedroom 2 also has an en-suite toilet and basin.
Heading back downstairs and into the kitchen, double doors lead out into the fully enclosed, south-westerly facing garden, which contains a paved area and decking at the end of the garden. There is an outdoor table and chairs, with a barbecue provided in the Summer. Outside the front door is a small garden area, with a stone bench, which looks down the lane to the brook running past the cottage.
