Duckling Cottage is a delightfully renovated Cotswold stone cottage in the very pretty and peaceful village of Bledington. The mixture of beautiful stone and thatch country cottages date back to the 17th and 18th century. Situated in the Evenlode Valley, it is set on the attractive village green opposite the excellent village pub, The Kings Head, with its deserved reputation for fine dining.
It has the benefit of a village shop and the mainline railway station to London Paddington is in the neighbouring village of Kingham as well as the very popular pubs, The Toll House and The Plough.
Stow-on-the Wold with its specialist antique shops, excellent pubs and restaurants is just 4 miles away. The pretty market towns of Chipping Campden, Broadway and Moreton-in-Marsh are only a short drive away as is the Daylesford Organic Farm Shop in Kingham.
