Description of Ratty's Retreat Holiday Accommodation

Delightfully romantic, self catering holiday cottage in the Cotswolds. Ideally suited for just two people, the property is a charming barn conversion, built in beautiful Cotswold stone. It is on 2 floors, the upper galleried floor being reached via a spiral staircase. It sits in communal grounds giving access to the lovely brook. It has a small private patio and garden area, benefiting from its sunny position, which is ideal for relaxing at the end of the day.The communal grounds are open to all guests and lead down to a tranquil area alongside the rippling brook with its magnificent overhanging willow tree.

We provide luxury bed linen, towels, bath robes & Molton Brown toiletries, along with complimentary tea, coffee and fresh milk on arrival. Heating and electricity are also included in the rental rates, along with free wireless internet access. Ratty's Retreat Cottage is a non-smoking cottage. Regretfully, no children or pets.

The cottage is in the lovely village of Blockley, sometimes referred to as the 'Secret village'. It is tucked away between Chipping Campden and Moreton in Marsh. It is steeped in history, having once been a thriving part of the silk trade. Now it is very tranquil with one village shop which serves as restaurant/cafe and post office too!

From here you are ideally situated to explore the Cotswolds and its many attractions. There are some wonderful walks and a variety of things to do and see. More details can be found on our website.
