Please consult us prior to booking if you wish to discuss the possibility of having more than eight guests at the property. Infants who sleep in a cot do not count towards the occupancy figure, however, due to space restrictions, the occupancy figure may only be exceeded by up to two additional infants.

Parking Hainault House is located on a quiet road and free on-street parking is usually available directly outside the house. An additional parking space is available at the top of the garden, however, parking in front of the house is typically more convenient for guests. Child friendly facilities A travel cot (without linen), high chair and safety gate are provided. The safety gate encloses the upper living room, creating a safe environment for young children. Hainault House's split level garden is enclosed, however, please note that it is accessed via steps from the back door and the main areas of the garden are not visible from the house. Accessibility, health and safety Hainault House is an old, Grade II listed property and has many character features, including narrow and steep stairs, low beams, multiple floors and 51 steps from the back door to the top of the garden, which could pose difficulty to guests with limited mobility, or carrying babies, both in terms of their general movement and their ability to quickly exit the house in the event of an emergency. The smoke and CO detectors operate on a sound only basis and, therefore, those who have serious impairment of hearing may not be able to hear the alarm systems and could be at risk.More

About the neighborhood
Blockley is a popular village in the Cotswolds which is found within a triangle formed by three renowned market towns: Chipping Campden to the North, Moreton-in-Marsh to the South East and Stow-on-the-Wold to the South. Being close to these three towns has led to increased footfall in the village, bringing with it good quality pubs and a lovely village shop/café.
Getting around
The Cotswolds is a rural location and whilst there is access to public transport, it is highly recommended that you have a car.
