The Cotswolds

The Cotswolds is a region delineated by the Oolitic limestone on which it stands and covers an area of about 800 square miles, and it is not a place to be visited in a day (as several of our visitors have thought they could do).  It is full of picturesque market towns and picturesque villages.

It is unique in that it touches on 5 counties, the bulk of it being in Gloucestershire, and so there is an individuality that you would find hard to replicate anywhere else. It extends from Chipping Campden in the North to Roman Bath in the South.

Quintessentially English and very rural, but with so much to do and see but it can also be a peaceful location too. The Cotswolds has gained a reputation for being the country retreat for the rich and famous, and it’s not hard to see why. With its delightful views, beautiful cottages, honey-coloured villages, rolling hills, river valleys, bustling market towns, history and folklore, nature reserves, and much, much more, plus, its easy access to and from London via railways and motorways.

With the Cotswolds right on its doorstep during your stay, Chipping Campden is the perfect choice for a perfect country escape.

Where to Stay

When planning a trip to Chipping Campden, one of the most important decisions is where to stay. It can be difficult to decide with so many choices available. To help make the decision easier, here are one or two of the best places to stay in Chipping Campden, depending on your budget and preferences.

Hotels and Pubs

Within the town itself, we have two beautiful hotels.  The Cotswold House Hotel & Spa, and The Noel Arms Hotel both with private parking.  Whilst a little smaller but no less comfortable, we also have The Lygon Arms (a local family-run establishment).

If you are looking for something a little more intimate then the Eight Bells and The Red Lion pubs also offer excellent accommodation and are great for those who enjoy those lazy lunches whilst on holiday.  We must also not forget the Volunteer Inn with amazing food, which also boasts an in-house Indian restaurant.

Hopefully, if you are planning to stay more than one night in Chipping Campden, (which we recommend), you might be able to secure discounts by contacting the accommodation provider.  You can also travel a little down the road to the Dormy House Hotel and Spa for even more Cotswolds luxury.

Bed and Breakfast

The Cotswolds town of Chipping Campden is home to several B&B establishments and guest houses offering modern bedrooms and honest hospitality with excellent breakfast selections.  Places such as The Bantam Tearooms (a traditional English tea room) and Woolmarket House (situated over Michaels Mediterranean Restaurant).  Each has its own unique charm and if you are looking for breakfast accommodation is worth a look.

Whether you’re looking for a cosy cottage or a stately manor house, you’ll find it in Chipping Campden or in the immediate area with many buildings retaining their original 17th century and earlier features. This historic town is the perfect base for exploring the Cotswolds, with its rolling hills and quaint villages.

Whether you’re looking for a traditional English breakfast or something a bit more unique, there’s sure to be a bed and breakfast in Chipping Campden that suits your needs.  It’s easy to find an enchanting cottage with an exceptional breakfast no matter what your budget is during your stay.

Self-Catering Holiday Cottages

Then there are the self-catering cottages, some on the Chipping Campden High Street (a great central location) and others tucked away in cosy little nooks down alleyways. These places can best be found by using the search engines available online or our town directory.  They offer an ideal base for anyone wishing to explore the Cotswolds on their own time, and especially those that wish to check out the wide choice of pubs.

Many come with contemporary interiors, washing machines, hair dryers, flat-screen TV and road parking.  Some also offer disabled access and ground floor access and acres of grounds.

Camping and Glamping

Whilst free camping is discouraged without the field owners’ prior permission, There are campsites in the area, notably at Wolds End Farm, Long hills Farm, Weston Sub edge Bowling Club, and Hayles Abbey Fruit farm nr. Broadway. Whilst Glamping can be found at Campden Yurts, Hidcote Manor farm and Rookery Glamping nr. Broadway to name but a few

Chipping Campden Accommodation in the Immediate Area

Within a 5-mile radius of the town, we have some notable luxury Hotels, pubs, Inns and the like all of which offer excellent food. There is Charingworth Manor set in its own 54-acre grounds just outside Ebrington, again with its own spa. The Three Ways Hotel in Mickleton (another local beautiful village) is the home of the world-renowned Pudding Club and a charming village hotel. The Seagrave Arms in Weston Sub Edge are now under new management, similarly, the Ebrington Arms in Ebrington, no less, is rapidly proving itself as the place to be seen in.

When is the Best Time to Stay in Chipping Campden?

One might be tempted to say, any time, as the historic market town expresses a charm and individuality in all seasons of the year. However, if pushed, the best month might be May when the weather tends to be dry and you all the wonderful spring flowers with all the notable gardens and parks at their most colourful.

Chipping Campden is noted for its high street with buildings of honey-coloured stone that come into a life of their own when the sun is shining.  There’s nothing better than eating a delicious lunch outside in Chipping Campden during the summer months in beautiful surroundings (even though the Chipping Campden English weather can be unpredictable at times).

During the autumn, the changing colour of the leaves creates an exquisite collage of reds/oranges and yellows, and places like Batsford Arboretum and Hidcote Gardens are brought to life and into their own.

Winter has a charm of its own.  Think blazing log fires, cosy cottages, inglenook fireplaces, comfy chairs with a bottle of vintage wine and a good book complete with British cuisine and high-quality cask ales.

The Town comes to life again in December when the Christmas lights are switched on and the high street buildings are lit up with the lights that trace the unique rooftop outline from one end to the other.

With National Trust supported buildings such as the Chipping Campden Market Hall and historic houses all around, many with original features, it’s difficult to forget that we are in modern times.  Explore a little further around the town and you will find Chipping Campden has a natural beauty all of its own.
