High Street, Blockley, Gloucestershire, GL56

Guide price

Bedrooms: 2
Undoubtedly one of the brightest jewels in Blockley's crown of country cottages and full of the innate character and charm of the late 18th century, this end-terraced, two bedroom grade II listed cottage offers deceptively spacious accommodation on three levels and could not be more centrally located close to a range of amenities in one of the most popular North Cotswold villages midway between the cosmopolitan Cotswold cafe society of Chipping Campden and the more traditional market town of Moreton in Marsh where there are rail links to Oxford and London Paddington.
