A bit hard to find but a picturesque stop. The charming cottages sit around a gorgeous sundial. Even on a rainy winter day, we appreciated the gardens and design. So many unique architectural details to see....each home has its own personality.

These buildings are amazing, all different and all inhabited. Like a time gone by. The chimneys are what keeps me returning time and time again as there are not many chimneys like this to see. Also dovecote. Very peaceful too to sit and contemplate.

This “estate village” is a delight. How lovely it has been protected. It seems to be in a delightful world of it’s own with the thatch.

Just over the road from Blaise Castle itself lies this beautiful little oasis of calm: a small grassy green surrounded by 9 gorgeous cottages built around 1810. Owned by the National Trust they are rented out to tenants so you can't go into the cottages,...More

If visiting Blaise Castle and the grounds, popping across the road to the hamlet is well worth it! Only a couple of minutes walk away, the quaint cottages exude character.

My Granddaughter, Daughter in law and I spent a wonderful day afternoon looking for the fairydoors. The event was very well organised, with lots of guides in strategic places, if we big people, lost our way. The 3 year old enjoyed it and especially the...More
