Knoll Cottage is a beautiful Cotswold stone cottage, which has been stylishly refurbished by its owners and benefits from fabulous countryside views. The cottage sits in the heart of the oldest part of the historic village of Blockley, which is located well away from busy roads and benefits from two pubs, a community owned shop and cafe, 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.
The cottage has been lovingly refurbished, to create a modern style whilst highlighting the many beautiful character features, including oak beams, exposed Cotswold stone walls and an inglenook fireplace with a wood burning stove. Complementing the character of the cottage are modern facilities, including wireless internet access, a flatscreen TV and a beautiful new kitchen.
Knoll Cottage sleeps a maximum of four people, in two bedrooms, with two bathrooms and a lower ground floor cloakroom. There is a lovely enclosed garden, with beautiful countryside views, and quiet street parking is readily available. The cottage is perfect for a family, group of friends or a couple seeking a luxurious break in one of the Cotswold's loveliest villages.

Security deposits are not required (please note that guests are still liable for any damage or additional cleaning required as a result of their actions).

Unauthorised over occupancy is a breach of our terms and conditions and may result in the cancellation of your booking and additional charges. Please consult us prior to booking if you wish to discuss the possibility of having more than four guests at the property.
Infants who sleep in a cot do not count towards the occupancy figure, however, due to space restrictions, the occupancy figure may only be exceeded by one additional infant.
Regrettably, pets are not accepted.

Child friendly facilities
Regrettably, due to the steepness and open access to the stairs, Knoll Cottage does not accept children under the age of 5. Babies who are not yet walking are accepted and a travel cot (without linen) and a high chair are provided.
The property's garden is enclosed.
Please also note the accessibility, health and safety section below.
A small quantity of initial consumables is provided for your convenience (eg. tea, coffee, sugar, dishwasher tablets, washing up liquid, soap, washing powder, toilet rolls, etc), however, you should not expect the quantity of these provisions to be sufficient for the duration of your stay.
Accessibility, health and safety
This is an old property and has many character features, including narrow and steep stairs, low beams and doorways, and multiple floors, which could pose difficulty to guests with limited mobility, or carrying babies, both in terms of their general movement and their ability to quickly exit the property in the event of an emergency.
Bedroom 2, on the top floor of the cottage, has no doorway and the bedroom opens directly onto the steep staircase down to the first floor. This room is therefore unlikely to be suitable for young children.
The smoke and CO detectors operate on a sound only basis and, therefore, those who have serious impairment of hearing may not be able to hear the alarm systems and could be at risk.
No smoking is permitted throughout the property.
In order to provide you with as much detail of our properties as possible, we sometimes use wide angle photography, which can make certain rooms, or spaces, appear larger than they actually are. Wherever possible, we try to include a floorplan, with detailed dimensions of rooms and areas.
If you have any queries regarding the size of any rooms or spaces, please do not hesitate to contact us.
