Guide price

Bedrooms: 3
Forming an integral part of the street scene of this iconic North Cotswold village, this Grade II listed, three storey, three bedroomed character home is now ready for a full programme of modernisation and is an excellent opportunity for those looking to develop a property to their own requirements. Located midway along the High Street, and in tandem with many other properties in the immediate vicinity, Pilgrim Cottage was once a general grocery store until the late 1960's. The property now has a distinctive small paned bow window to the front, preceding a spacious living room with a stone fireplace and a real fire. There is a full width kitchen extension to the rear with a lantern roof, spacious master bedroom and bathroom on the first floor and two smaller bedrooms on the second floor. Gas fired central heating is installed.

To the rear of the property there is a steeply rising garden with a westerly aspect taking full advantage of the afternoon sun and pedestrian access leading to Chapel Lane.

There are scenic walks to be enjoyed in surrounding countryside which can be accessed directly from the property with the village also having two public houses and a village shop and tearooms, which opens as a restaurant some evenings. The village has its own primary school and is within the catchments for Chipping Campden secondary school.

Blockley is located midway between the Cotswold cafe society of Chipping Campden and the more traditional market town of Moreton in Marsh where there are rail links to London Paddington.

Concrete steps ascend through a steep banking to a slightly sloping patio and drying area. The pathway then ascends through a series of terraced rockeries to an enclosed garden area to the rear. The garden extends to approximately 80 feet long and is surrounded by fencing. To the extreme rear of the garden there is a slightly wider area giving access to a communal pathway between other cottages leading to Chapel Lane, which we are informed is owned by The Old Chapel and the maintenance of which is borne by The Studio and Pilgrim Cottage. Immediately adjacent to the first three steps there is a gate leading to the adjacent property. The rights for this are in favour of Pilgrim Cottage for maintenance purposes and not for The Studio to have access to the garden of Pilgrim Cottage.

All buyers are advised to ascertain the exact details of the rights of way in pre contract enquiries prior to exchange of contracts.


The current water supply is on a joint arrangement with the adjacent cottage called The Studio, the owners of which have informed us that they would be happy for an individual supply to each property to be created to increase the water pressure. There is also a block paved area immediately to the front of Pilgrim Cottage, on which there is no official allocated parking and is officially part of the Highway. Cars however have been parked there on an informal basis over many years.
