The cottage was perfect for our group of 6, who were looking for a relaxing way to spend a weekend away from London. Everything was in perfect condition and of a high quality, for example the comfortable beds and top of the range cooker. The welcome cake and bottle of wine was a thoughtful touch, and all in all we couldn't recommend Plum Tree Cottage more highly.
Having just had an horrific airbnb experience I was fearful that the photos and reviews would not match the reality at Plumtree Cottage. Walking into the beautiful warm kitchen with home made lemon drizzle cake to welcome us, I immediately relaxed. The house is fitted out to a really high, tasteful spec, everything you need is there, and I loved playing with the wood burner, I drove my friends mad! The village is welcoming and picturesque, and Blockley is really well situated for lots of gardens, houses etc. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it, it's just lovely.
We stayed at Plum Tree Cottage in November and for anyone who hasn't visited the Cotswolds in autumn we can highly recommend a stay at this wonderful time of the year. The rich colours of the season beautifully compliment the Cotswold stone buildings and log fires and cosy tea rooms just add to the experience. We booked this beautiful cottage at the last minute and were amazed with the efficiency of Character Cottages and of course the owner who we can't thank enough for allowing us to stay. Everything was perfect on arrival and we received a lovely and unexpected welcome gift. The cottage is so cosy and yet spacious enough for six grown-ups and two toddlers. The beds are luxurious and we slept soundly every night, so soundly in fact that my husband who is a snorer, was completely silent for the first time in our married life! The range cooker is to die for and instead of opting for dining out with the little ones we enjoyed preparing meals in the stunning kitchen and then eating them by the fireside. The cottage is stylish and beautifully equipped, everything has been thoughtfully chosen and we just cannot fault it. We found Blockley is the perfect place from which to explore other beautiful villages with Bourton-on-the Water, Broadway, Stow-on-the Wold, Chipping Campden, Moreton-in-the-March all within a six mile radius. Without hesitation I would recommend Plum Tree Cottage to those looking for the perfect Cotswold getaway. Our grandchildren absolutely adored staying here and loved collecting the windfall apples from the trees in the garden whilst we gazed out over rolling hills where sheep grazed and the occasional plume of smoke from a distant bonfire drifted up into the autumnal sky. Our last day was Remembrance Sunday and it seemed as though the whole village turned out to sing hymns and pay tribute to the fallen. What an amazing place to live! Thank you to Carol (the owner) for allowing us to 'live' here if only for a brief moment. Our whole family had a marvellous time and we just can't wait to return.
What a great find this was.
We wanted a cottage to get our family together for a birthday and could not have made a better choice.
There were six of us plus our grandson.
Three good sized bedrooms and very well equipped.
There was cot supplied which was easy to erect although you do need to take young ones mattress with you.
the kitchen was excellent with everything you need for a short or long stay.
The woodburner in the lounge was ready to light and more logs outside if required.
Blockley is steeped in history regarding the silk industry and please take time to walk the village and take it all in.
Midway between Moreton in the Marsh and Broadway there are plenty of places to visit.
Although no dedicated parking we had no issues parking in the road opposite the cottage.
We used the Great Western Arms pub a few hundred yards up the road and sampled the Hook Norton beers on offer (all were excellent).
One small tip is logging onto the wifi !! don't use the password in the book, look under the router and use the password on the label beneath.
The owner left a really nice bottle of red wine and the lemon drizzle cake was delicious.
In short we loved it and sure everyone else who stay there will.
Many thanks to the owner for a great stay and already passed on the details of this property.
Beautiful cottage which is comfortable, well equipped with a high quality kitchen and bathroom. Great central location in a lovely village for exploring the Cotswolds. Log fire...so cosy with a plentiful supply of logs. The only downside is that it needs a little more storage in bedrooms but overall highly recommended.
