We really enjoyed our twixmas stay at Gentian cottage. It was cold and snowy when we arrived but the cottage was warm,the lamps and Christmas tree lights were on with Christmas music playing on the radio.
As we looked around the cottage we found lovely treats for us to enjoy. Prosseco,Christmas cake and chocolates all were very much appreciated.
The quality of the furnishings were excellent and the bed very comfortable.
Blockey is a lovely village to walk round and explore. It was very icy while we were there so hope to return to explore more in warmer weather. Although it was very pretty with the snowfall.
Blockley is in a good location to visit Chipping Camden, Moreton in the Marsh and Broadway.
We would love to return to Gentian when next staying in the area.
We arrived at the cottage which was very tastefully decorated, cosy and warm! Very welcoming! The bottle of bubbles and cake was a very nice treat.
Parking was never a problem and the cottage stayed toasty and warm! Comfy beds, powerful shower and smart TV, bliss after a hard day spent walking!
Would definitely stay again!
The first things that struck us as we walked through the door early Thursday evening, exhausted after a long days travel and sightseeing, was the high standard of fitments and furnishings but most of all the cleanliness and pristine condition throughout the property.
I would definitely recommend this property to anyone, anytime and I hope to rebook for myself at the earliest opportunity.
The owner, Nicci was a delight to deal with from start to finish; offering valuable advice and help throughout.
We were only a party of 2, myself in my 60's and my 83 year old widowed Aunt who is visiting me from New Zealand before we return their in October for Xmas & New Year. Despite some mobility problems, related to balance, the Cottage was ideal and Nicci did everything in her power to ensure that my Aunt's needs were met.
So much so that we extended our stay at Gentian by an extra 4th night before heading down to Cornwall before returning to Lancashire ahead of our return to New Zealand.
Everything about Gentian Cottage and Blockley was simply text book perfect. Ideal location, lovely friendly helpful neighbours and villagers, a property that was equipped to the hilt and state of the art techno wise.
The only downside which I found to be extremely inconvenient was the awful Mobile signal (non existent throughout in this area] - thank God the wifi internet in the cottage was excellent though.
Thank you Nicci, good luck for the future and looking forward to a possible return next year maybe.
A chocolate box cottage in a stunning and very friendly village. The cottage was very well appointed and everything you needed was available down to even herbs in the little garden. The standard of furnishings and decor was exceptionally high with supremely comfortable beds. Just a fabulous place to stay and we felt at home from the moment we walked in through the front door. Well done to the owner for making this such a wonderful place to stay. I'm sure we will be back one day even though it is only 50 minutes away from our home but in fact that makes it even more attractive as your journey is very relaxing and easy.
