Cracking little cottage situated in a lovely location; ideal for exploring the Cotswolds. Had a very nice, cosy feel to it, with everything you need for a relaxing break.
This is a beautiful cottage that was the perfect setting for our Christmas away from home.
Blockley itself is a postcard worthy village and an ideal location for exploring the Cotswolds countryside, with stunning country walks on the doorstep.
The stylish decor gives the Cottage an elegant feel. The kitchen is extremely well provisioned and traditional fireplace is a cosy delight on colder evenings. We wished we could have stayed for longer.
October 2016 was our first trip to England and we thought that London was our primary destination. Wrong - Pearl Cottage/Blockley provided the perfect holiday retreat we didn’t know we wanted, until we arrived.
The furnishings - contemporary and cozy.
The home - spacious and efficient.
The kitchen - lovely glorious natural lighting & wonderful appliances.
We were tickled with delight at the modern amenities of USB outlets in the kitchen for our mobile devices, and great TV coverage.
The warming touches - the wood burning stove, cozy throws and efficient heat. It was the perfect location to head out daily and visit other sites. We even spent one day hunkered down in the rain, cuddled up reading and working crosswords.
We can't wait to return to Pearl Cottage!
I stayed at Pearl cottage for a long weekend as a base to explore the 'chocolate box' villages of the Cotswolds/Gloucestershire/Oxfordshire. The cottage was lovely! Beautifully decorated with all mod cons and amenities. It's a perfect place to base yourself to explore all the lovely villages in the area - most are less than 10 minutes' drive. Blockley is a lovely, quiet village and I discovered that the TV programme 'Father Ted' was filmed in its beautiful church, which has a pet Cemetery!
I would recommend Pearl cottage to couples, families or even a group of friends as the cottage can accommodate 5 people comfortably. Would definitely go again, and next time, try and do some of the walks around the area.
The location is perfect. A local community store/cafe is within walking distance and the surrounding area provide endless choice of charming Cotswold pubs. This was the perfect spot to provide easy access to all the delights of the Cotswolds. We would highly recommend the cottage. It was wonderfully decorated and every need catered for. A delightful home from home. The owners really have thought about what guests need to enjoy a great stay. We will definitely return.
