Welcome to Hainault House, brought to you exclusively by Character Cottages, local specialists in stylish Cotswold holiday rentals.

Please click More Details to read about the House Rules.

Built from classic honey coloured Cotswold Stone and dating back to the 17th Century, Hainault House is a double fronted, Grade II listed property, standing proudly on the raised pavements of the historic village of Blockley. Despite being well away from major roads and tourist buses, the village is fortunate to have two pubs, a restaurant and an award winning community owned shop and café. Blockley is close to the popular Cotswold market towns of Moreton-in-Marsh, Chipping Camden and Stow-on-the-Wold, and many stunning countryside walks are right on the doorstep.

Hainault House boasts many character features, including mullion windows, flagstone floors, exposed Cotswold stone walls and a large inglenook fireplace. The character of the house is complemented by the contemporary decor and modern facilities, including wireless broadband, Freesat TV with DVD player, and an Aga in the kitchen. The house sleeps a maximum of eight people, in four bedrooms, with a family bathroom and a further en-suite bathroom, as well as two separate living rooms. There is a terraced rear garden, with stunning views over the Blockley valley from the top level, and quiet on street parking is freely available. Hainault House is the perfect setting for a family holiday or for a group of friends wishing to explore the beautiful Cotswolds region.

Hainault House is an old, Grade II listed property and has many character features, including narrow and steep stairs, low beams, multiple floors and 51 steps from the back door to the top of the garden, 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 house in the event of an emergency.

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.

Photographs

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.

Other Activities:

Blockley is a popular village in the Cotswolds which is found within a triangle formed by three renowned market towns: Chipping Campden to the North, Moreton-in-Marsh to the South East and Stow-on-the-Wold to the South. Being close to these three towns has led to increased footfall in the village, bringing with it good quality pubs and a lovely village shop/café.

As the village is away from main roads, it avoids the heavy tourist traffic and so visitors can get a real sense of rural life, enjoying the rolling countryside which falls within the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The peaceful Blockley Brook attracts tourists and locals as a quiet place to relax in the warmer months. This brook, together with the other brook in the village, played a part in Blockley's history as there were once 12 water mills which provided work in various industries over the centuries, including silk production and flour milling.

Architecturally the village has quite a different character in comparison to the rest of the North Cotswolds as it has a more similar style to that of the villages in the Stroud valley, but here they have used a more golden stone. This design is reminiscent of wealthier times as the majority of the cottages were built during the 17th and 18th century, at the height of the industrial era.

A popular attraction in Blockley is Mill Dene Garden which is a partner garden of the Royal Horticultural Society. With a misty grotto, stream and seats around the mill pond, this is a lovely place to while away the time looking out for the kingfishers whilst enjoying a cream tea.

Car: Blockley is easily accessed by car, being located approximately 1 mile away from the A44 and approximately 3 miles away from the A429 (Fosse Way), which are two of the main roads through the North Cotswolds.

Train: The nearest railway station to Blockley is Moreton-in-Marsh (approximately 3 miles away), which has regular, direct services to London Paddington, with a typical journey time of approximately 90 minutes.

Plane: Birmingham International Airport: 42 miles, approximately 60 minute drive; Heathrow International Airport: 76 miles, approximately 90 minute drive; Bristol International Airport: 75 miles, approximately 90 minute drive.
