Chipping Campden this gem of a Cotswold town always makes a great first impression – arriving from the south you pass a row of beautiful thatched houses. The High Street is Campden's USP; a single, long, row of 14c–17c houses, complete with 'Chipping' or market place.
Despite such a display of historic architecture, Campden is a lively place, with a scattering of antique, book, food and vintage shops. Cotswold House overlooks the heart of things and is an important part of village life, with its two restaurants. Fig is a 2 AA Rosette fine dining restaurant, whilst Bistro on the Square offers all-day casual dining.
Campden tips from Cotswold House
Head up to Dover's Hill, a local beauty spot. It's also the site of the Cotswold Olimpicks, where country games (including shin-kicking – yep, just as it sounds) are held every May.
Cotswold House is surrounded by great walking country (and some terrific pubs).
Please ask us here at reception.
Robert Welch Gallery, in the lower High Street is a beautiful design-led shop featuring kitchen and home wares – every product is designed in the Old Silk Mill at Chipping Campden. Robert Welch began designing in one tiny room in 1955. Do leave time for afternoon tea in our own garden, tucked away at the back of the hotel – a well kept secret.
