Courtyard House is situated within the heart of Blockley Village, just off High Street, so you’re within walking distance of everything the village has to offer, and you have your own parking place in the driveway. The house is over two-hundred years old yet it has the modern amenities of central heating, a brand new bathroom with a modern shower, and a new well-lit, fully-equipped kitchen. The large sitting room has a ten-foot high beamed ceiling and a dining and sitting area within it furnished with antique pine furniture.
   Two steps down from the dining area is a separate sitting area with an upholstered sofa and chairs gathered around the open fireplace. With that fireplace and central heating, a stay during the winter is a wholly comfortable experience upstairs and down. French doors and big windows look out into the 15' x 35' garden we’ve redesigned and furnished for outdoor seating, eating and admiring the perennials and shrubs that comprise the garden. From the new dining area in the garden, there is a view of the 600-year old church tower and the church itself. Every hour and half hour you can hear the bells from the clock on the Parish Church just across Bell Lane.
   The two bedrooms upstairs (one with twin beds, the other with a double) have 16' sloped beamed ceilings, each with its own bath. From the upstairs windows you look out onto the tiled rooftops of Blockley.
