Review of Blockley by anne on May 6th, 2008
We enjoyed a good five nights in the peaceful town of Blockley at the crown. The tranquility of Blockley, the helpful smiling staff and the nice beer made our weekend just lovely. The bar is just downstairs with all the local color wanted, the people in Blockley are very charming and welcoming. We took part in a village fete on saturday to celebrate the new post office/shop/café. Lovely little shop with white wine in the cooler, perfect for a spur of the moment picnic on the hill. Blockley is much nicer than Broadway and Chipping camden and all the touristy places, only 20 minutes from all the gardens, like Snowshill and Hidcote and set on a serene valley. Nice woods at the end of the village for a little walk after breakfast as well. If you want a weekend of quite countryside and a place to read your books, this is the place. Our only regret is that the labs weren't there more often...
