  • Bedrooms: 2
Positioned in a quiet country cul-de-sac at the fashionable Dovedale end of the High Street in Blockley village and having a comprehensive programme of modernisation over recent years, this double fronted two storey, two double bedroom Cotswold retreat has been elegantly restored and is well worthy of internal inspection.

The property has a modern fitted kitchen with a built in oven and hob, four piece bathroom suite with a roll top slipper bath, many attractive leaded pane windows and three built in window seats all adding to the property's innate character and charm.

Externally the property has off street parking for one small vehicle and an elevated garden with excellent views over the surrounding area. The property is only a 100 yards away from walks in Dovedale woods, all in one of the most sought after villages in the North Cotswolds.

The village has two public houses, a hotel, its own primary school, a community run village store and tearooms (which opens a restaurant in the evening) and is positioned midway between the 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.
