Company info

Bolthole Retreats was founded in 2017 by Martin McWilliam and is based in Cheltenham. We are the leading independent agency for Cotswold holiday rental properties. We work closely with owners and housekeepers to ensure that guests have a truly memorable stay. We pride ourselves on our local knowledge, whether it be of a local farm shop, cycle routes or events. Our aim is to enable guests to have the opportunity to enjoy authentic Cotswold experiences, from the Cotswold experts, in a lovely Cotswold property that suits their needs.

Property info

Stepping Stones is a delightful two-bedroom home located in beautiful Blockley village in prime walking country at the heart of the Cotswolds. Stepping Stones is a modern home with a refined, classic feel set within a pretty development of converted barns with stunning shared gardens, and private patio and BBQ, leading down to Blockley Brook. Sleeping up to 4 guests across a super king size bedroom and a twin bedroom, with a fabulous, spa-like family bathroom, here you can enjoy a slice of Cotswolds village life without having to battle the crowds that some of the larger nearby market towns attract. Please note: Dog owners and guests with small children need to note that the garden is not enclosed, and the Brockley Brook is directly accessible. EV Charging: It is not permitted to run electrical cables across pathways or communal grass areas at Lower Farm Cottages. A list of local EV charging points is provided on booking. It is our policy not to take bookings for single sex group celebrations, which includes Stag and Hen nights, or groups where the majority are under 25 years. Please note that additional guests above the maximum capacity are not permitted.

Neighborhood info

Somewhat of an under-the-radar gem when it comes to Cotswold destinations, the village of Blockley offers a picture-perfect escape for those in search of quintessential Cotswolds yet away from the crowds, nestled in a valley far from the well-trodden tourist track. Blockley developed as a mill town during the 9th Century, using the water of Blockley Brook to power 12 water mills that are recorded in the Domesday Book. During the 18th and 19th centuries Blockley was a major centre of England’s silk industry, with the silk mills using Blockley Brook, which runs through the centre of the village and forms the boundary of Stepping Stones’ garden. Following the collapse of the silk industry, the town went into relative decline, leaving behind lots of mill buildings and workers cottages - perfect for renovation and development in the 20th Century. At its heyday, Blockley had over 60 shops, seven inns, four banks, and two piano factories and the Vulcan iron foundry and works. Today there is one excellent shop/cafe, a pub, a hotel, several small business units and a Post Office. The entire parish lies within the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).
