“We are delighted once again to be turning something old into something new at Blackwell Grange with the launch of 1604.

So why 1604?

Since opening in 2016, accommodation has been eagerly anticipated. 1604 is the date stone on one of the properties; tradition and history is at the heart of this family-owned Cotswold venue.

What lies in store?

1604 offers 10 en-suite bedrooms, carefully designed to compliment the existing style of Blackwell Grange with a layer of historical sentiment woven into this family’s tapestry. Emmersing yourself in this nostalgic home will only enhance your journey at Blackwell Grange.

The Corn Shed – sleeps 6
Located opposite the main entrance to The Orchard Barn, The Corn Shed is just a stone’s throw from all the festivities. On the ground floor, Big Horn provides super king bedroom with an en-suite shower, while Gin and Lime and Moonlight Escapade on the first floor offer super king en-suite bedrooms and are each accessed by their own staircase!

The Hayloft Cottage – sleeps 10
Hayloft, the master bedroom on the first floor, is full of character, boasting a full en-suite and views of The Walled Herb Garden. On the ground floor to the left, The Swallows is a generous super king bedroom with an en-suite shower. The bedroom to the right, The Bunker, sleeps six in the bespoke set of bunk beds. These have been authentically designed to be perfect for both single adult guests or children, with an en-suite shower room available too.

Nestled between The Water Tower and below The Granary (The Honeymoon Suite) is The Flour Mill, the heart of 1604. The Hayloft Cottage sits within The Walled Herb Garden, behind The Moon Gate.

The next time you look down the well in The Servery, look across to The Water Tower. The well water used to be pumped to the tanks in the top of the tower before the water was fed to the estate properties. The water was also used by the current owners father and grandfather when Blackwell Grange was their national hunt breeding stud and race yard. Now we have put water back in the top of that tower and we cannot wait for you to turn the taps on for the first time in the 21st century and be a part of our history.

The bedrooms have been sympathetically curated by the owner interior designer Didi Vernon Miller. The styling elements have incorporated some of the family’s heritage and the collection of these 16th and 17th century Cotswolds stone buildings creating an eclectic and authentic blend of memorabilia and charm.

“The horses have bolted from the stables for the last time, it’s out with the straw and in with the mattresses.
