About the property

Log burner makes for perfect cosy evenings sat round the fire with wine in hand!

Ropewalk is a traditional cottage built from Cotswold stone and found at the heart of the charming and historic village of Blockley. A stay here means you’ll be enjoying areas of outstanding natural beauty that are perfect for hikers, foodies and those just looking to get away from it all! It’s the ideal base from which to explore and enjoy the tranquility, stunning scenery and market towns of the Cotswolds with fantastic walks that start right at the cottage’s front door.

Ropewalk Cottage itself dates back to the 1880s, when it was occupied by silk mill workers during the heyday of Blockley’s textile industry . Recently renovated, this idyllic rural retreat comes complete with a wood-burning stove for whiling away your evenings in front of the fire with glass of wine in hand. The cottage sleeps up to 8 guests (with a maximum of 6 adults and 2 young children) in two doubles, one twin and a kid’s bedroom. The cottage also recently received an Oliver’s Travels recommendation award!

Ground Floor

- Living/dining room: A three-seater leather sofa, a two-seater sofa and two accent chairs surround the wood burning stove that makes Winter evenings a thing to be cherished! A log delivery service is available to ensure you never run out of fuel, and the house also benefits from full central heating. For entertainment you’ll find a wall-mounted, 32-inch flatscreen TV with Freeview and DVD player, as well as a selection of books, DVDs and games. The dining area comes with an extendable table that seats a maximum of eight guests, and high speed wifi internet is available throughout the house.

- Kitchen: The fully-equipped modern kitchen comes complete with Nespresso coffee machine (capsules can be ordered or bought in M&S) and bread maker. For babies and toddlers, two high chairs and plastic crockery are provided. We also have the usual fridge-freezer, washer/dryer, dishwasher, oven, hob and microwave.

First Floor

- Front bedroom: Double bed with double wardrobe, chest of drawers and travel cot with mattress available. The room offers fantastic views over the fields opposite with barely a building in sight.

- Rear bedroom: Twin beds with chest of drawers and hat rack with hanging space. Out of the window, you’ll find wonderful panoramic views of the Cotswold countryside.

- Family bathroom: Bath with overhead shower, basin, loo and heated towel rail.

Second Floor

- Front bedroom: Double bed with double wardrobe, dressing table and TV with Freeview. You can enjoy the same unbroken views over the fields as the room below, only with slightly better vantage point (so you may have to draw straws to see who gets which one!)

- Rear bedroom: Single bed with pull out bed underneath and a travel cot. Easily offers the best views in the house!

- Family shower room: Large shower with basin, loo and heated towel rail.

All bedrooms come complete with Egyptian cotton sheets and towels.

Outside

Outside you’ll find a garden with a small lawn area and a patio at the bottom for a table, chairs and a BBQ. You can set out on fantastic locals walks that start straight from the moment you leave the front door!

About Oliver's Travels - UK

Oliver's Travels was set up in 2003 after two old school chums enjoyed a fantastic holiday with friends in a French chateau in the Dordogne. Oliver & Ravi, the two directors of the company, were amazed at what terrific value these stunning chateau rentals represented and decided to spread the word. Soon after the website www.simplychateau.com was born.

Today we deliver a wide range of luxury villas, private chateau and charming farmhouses throughout France, Italy, Spain, the UK and the Caribbean. We have something for everyone from charming manor houses representing great value for money to fully catered & serviced luxury chateau, all handpicked and chosen with care. Bookings are made direct with the owner of your chosen property to guarantee you get the best booking price available.

Long family weekend

  • 3 of 5

Village is idyllic with lots of walking on the doorstep. Cottage is very sweet in the heart of the village. Facilities in the cottage are ok. Upstairs bedroom space is perfect and ample but downstairs space is very small. We stayed two nights with 4 adults, two little children and a young baby and it was tight ! Location is great with lots to do locally and nice for family holidays.
