Clouds Hill is perfectly located on a quiet lane, with views out over the rooftops of pretty Cotswold cottages, to the fields beyond. Despite the tranquil setting, the cottage is in the historic heart of Blockley, which is a peaceful, yet thriving village, with two pubs, a restaurant, a community owned village shop & café, and a historic Norman church. It is also the location where the Father Brown mystery series is filmed. Built around 1850, in traditional Cotswold stone, Clouds Hill has many character features, including wooden beams, exposed stone walls, flagstone floors and a wood burning stove. Complementing these period features, the house has modern facilities, including wireless internet access, a Freesat TV and a modern, well equipped kitchen. The cottage also has an enclosed sun terrace, which looks out over the village of Blockley. The layout of the property makes Clouds Hill an ideal retreat for a family or for a group of friends. The cottage sleeps up to six people, in three bedrooms, with one bathroom. House Rules Security deposits A security deposit of £150 is payable to the property owners, which is returned by the owner after the letting period, subject to a property inspection. For the avoidance of doubt, guests are requested to leave the property in a reasonable condition, consistent with the property's appearance upon arrival. In the event that the owners, or their appointed housekeepers, have to spend additional time tidying up after your departure, then the cost of this extra time may be deducted from your security deposit. Guests are specifically requested not to move furniture, or beds, around within the property and material failure to abide by this rule may result in a deduction from the security deposit. For UK based guests, the owner's preferred payment method is via a cheque (for arrival dates more than 14 days in advance). Overseas guests must pay the deposit via Paypal. Further details of how to pay the security deposit will be provided with your pre-arrival information. Occupancy The maximum occupancy of the property is six guests, at any point during your stay. Unauthorised over occupancy is a breach of our terms and conditions and may result in the cancellation of your booking and additional charges. Please consult us prior to booking if you wish to discuss the possibility of having more than six 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 one additional infant. Pets Clouds Hill accepts up to three dogs, at a cost of £25 per week per dog. For the comfort of future guests, we ask that dogs remain downstairs, stay off the furniture and that no trace of a dog remains after your departure. Arrival and departure times Arrival time at Clouds Hill is between 3pm and 5pm on a Saturday. You will be met by the owners upon arrival and we therefore request that you contact them in advance, to agree your specific arrival time. Departure time is by 10am. Bed sizes and configurations Bedroom 1: King size bed Bedroom 2: Two single beds Bedroom 3: Two single beds Fuel and logs To cover a proportion of the cost of the electricity and gas used at the property, a fuel supplement of £25 per week is payable directly to the owner for breaks between November and March. Logs for the wood burning stove can be purchased locally. Services provided Clouds Hill has free wireless internet access, a Freesat TV, DVD player and CD player. There is also a telephone available, for incoming calls only. Blockley is in a valley and guests should be aware that mobile phone reception can be very poor.

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.
