“Superb setting and cottage”
Reviewed 28 May 2012 for a stay in May 2012

We recently returned from a 5 day break at Hainault House. The house itself is full of character and had everything we could need. It's a beautiful village and the views from the top of the garden were well worth the hike up there (to be fair, living in Cambridgeshire, anything more than a molehill is a bit of a climb to us!). Also enjoyed watching the sheep race on the hillside at feeding time!

We couldn't have picked a better week as far as the weather was concerned - very lucky. The cake and wine were a lovely touch and went down very well. We had a barbecue on Tuesday evening and the soundtrack provided by the choir in the small village hall behind was an unexpected surprise; very entertaining!

We took walkie talkies to communicate in our convoy of 3 families however they also came in very handy to radio down from the garden to those in the kitchen to bring cold beers from the fridge!

“Great break in Blockley with friends and baby!”
Reviewed 28 March 2012 for a stay in March 2012

We had a great stay thank-you. The cottage was lovely-had everything we needed and more. Blockley itself is beautiful and the view from the upstairs living room is amazing- a real incentive to get out of bed. Whilst we rarely visit the same place twice, we'd definitely recommend Character Cottages and book with them again.

“Highly recommended cottage in a beautiful location”
Reviewed 23 March 2012 for a stay in March 2012

We all thoroughly enjoyed our weekend in Hainault House in the pretty village of Blockley. It is a beautiful, well-appointed character cottage with lots of home comforts and we found everything that we could possibly need during our stay. We very much appreciated the cake and wine that were left for us as a welcoming treat as well! We would be delighted to make a return visit to Hainault House in the future.

“Fabulous Cottage”
Reviewed 6 February 2012 for a stay in January 2012

Our stay was fabulous – accommodation and cleanliness outstanding and welcome pack was a very nice touch. Four good sized double rooms and two separate living areas - one where the girls could sit around the fire and read and the other where the boys could watch football! Would certainly recommend and may well revisit.

“Wonderfully comfortable and quiet”
Reviewed 3 February 2012 for a stay in January 2012

After a 7 week/9 city trip through Europe, the UK and the US our visit to Blockley and our stay at Hainault House remains one of the highlights, especially for our kids. The house was gorgeous, and Blockley was a most lovely and picturesque little village – we especially loved the sense that it was a little off the beaten track. Having spent weeks enjoying the sights in busy European cities Hainault House provided an opportunity for some quiet and extremely comfortable down time. We will definitely be recommending the house to friends planning to visit the area in future, and hope to be back ourselves before too long.
