THE ACCOMMODATIONS: Mews Cottage offers history, comfort, and tranquility, all in a superb location. One of several converted stables that served the High Street shops and residences, the Mews Cottage is a spacious, comfortable two-storey lodging. The ground floor features an exposed-beam living room with a fireplace of golden Cotswolds stone, and a kitchen of rich oak wood with dining area, dishwasher and washer/dryer. There is also a powder room on the ground floor.
          The cottage sleeps 4-5 persons in three bedrooms on the second floor: one with double bed

and its own

bathroom (shower, no tub); a second with twin beds, and a third single bedroom. There is a second full bathroom with tub on the same floor.

THE SETTING: Mews Cottage is one of several cottages tucked away on a private walk behind the main street of the town. The lane directly outside the cottage is pedestrian only (cars permitted only for loading and unloading), and leads through a stone archway to Chipping Campden’s famed High Street. The archway opens onto High Street between a bakery and a quality fruit and vegetable market.

         Chipping Campden is one of the great small market towns of the Cotswolds. It was principally built by medieval wool merchants who became wealthy selling Cotswolds wool to the Continent. Chipping Campden is well known as one of the most charming of the northern Cotswold towns. It is often described as having the most perfect High Street in England, with its beautiful honey colored stone and thatched buildings dating from the 14th to the 17th centuries.
        The Market Hall (now in the care of the British National Trust) is an imposing open sided stone arched building, erected in 1627 to provide shelter for the local produce market. Visitors are welcome

 

in the town's Old Silk Mill and the workshop of

Harts (Gold and Silversmiths), descendants of

 

C R Ashbee’s Guild. Many interesting small shops, as well as several restaurants, hotels, and pubs offering traditional English and international cuisine line High Street.

THE LOCATION: Chipping Campden’s location is ideally situated for touring the Cotswolds from Oxford to Stratford-upon-Avon to Bath. Longer day-trips outside the region are also quite manageable, to destinations as varied and attractive as Salisbury and Stonehenge, Tintern Abbey and the Welsh borders, and even to

represents the best of traditional England. Chipping Campden is in the northern — and best known — part of the Cotswolds, famed for its numerous villages and towns of
multiple hyphens: Stow-on-the-Wold, Moreton-in-Marsh, Bourton-on-the-Hill — and many others without hyphens — Broadway, Chipping Norton, Upper and Lower Slaughter, Winchcombe, to name but a few. Using regular rail services from nearby Moreton-in-Marsh, London may be reached in about 90 minutes.

TOURING, ATTRACTIONS, & ACTIVITIES: 

          Chipping Campden offers a wide variety of activities, especially touring and walking. In town there is an excellent range of interesting small shops and a large choice of good restaurants, hotels and pubs offering both traditional English and international cuisine.

 

          Numerous other inviting villages and towns are scat-

terred among the hills and valleys of the Cotswolds.

 

Open-air markets and antique shops are plentiful throughout this historic region. Many castles, manors, historic churches, formal gardens, and grand estates are open to the public. Day trippers will want to explore great little Cotswolds towns including: Bourton-on-the-Water, Burford, Broad Campden, Cirencester, Tetbury, Snowshill, Stow-on-the-Wold, Stanton, Stanway, and Lower and Upper Swell. There are noted castles (Warwick, Sudeley, Broughton, and Blenheim Palace) and manor houses to explore, gardens to visit, theaters to attend, and a fine steam tourist short line to ride
