We stayed in this pretty cottage for three nights at the end of our two week holiday in England. The owners provided croissants, jam, milk, coffee and juice for our first breakfast. We even had a little bouquet of roses for the table and ripe apples to pick right off the trees! The cottage contains lots of books about the area to help you plan hikes and excursions. The town of Chipping Campden is charming and easily reached by walking from the neighborhood. Restaurants and a small food shop made meal planning easy. Excursions by car included Stratford upon Avon and Blenheim Palace. We appreciated the parking space directly in front of the cottage, and parking on the street was available as well. We always felt that the owners wanted us to enjoy our stay and were there to help us in any way!
Our party of 4 stayed at the Old Studio in August for several days. It was our first time in the area and we were not at all certain where to stay, but after our research, this house appeared to fit our needs. We were NOT disappointed - it was perfect! We wanted privacy and quiet, but to be close to stores, restaurants, etc. This adorable, well-equipped cottage was within a short walk to charming downtown Chipping Campden (there's a shortcut, too) in a very quiet residential neighborhood. The walk into town passes by lovely homes, gardens and thatched roofed gems. Nice views from the upper windows, pleasant outdoor seating, comfy rooms and beautiful decor. Chipping Campden was a perfect location for sight-seeing in the area (Bourton on the Water, Stratford upon Avon, Stow on the Wold, Broadway to name a few), and the town itself can keep you busy for days if you like to explore. The owners were responsive, amicable, welcoming and not intrusive. Lots of books with walking trails, maps, tourism info available for guests. The price for the value was perfect. Booking through FlipKey was a breeze. You will not be disappointed.
I truly could write a novel about everything we loved about the Cotswolds. Staying at the Old studio was the perfect location to go out and explore or to rest and enjoy the countryside! We felt as if we lived there. Helen and Michael were wonderful and made us feel as if we had friends in town. A very nice feeling when you're far away from home. Helen made herself available for all of our questions and assisted us when we needed to seek medical care during our journey. We felt safe & taken care of. Not to mention the cottage itself is spacious, very well equipped and check out the views from the windows! You will not be disappointed when staying here! It was perfection. Make sure to make dinner reservations in advance for most of the pubs in town, they fill up fast. Lygon arms was our favorite! Thank you again! Oh, and don't forget to check out Sarah's deli for pastries!
This little studio inn Chipping Campden was well located to explore the area. It was a short walk to the high street with some good pubs.The studio itself was comfortable but little things let it down. Unstable kitchen table, wobbly kitchen chairs and I don't do a lot of self catering but 3 toilet rolls for 2 people for 5 days is inadequate. Dishwasher cubes provided but no laundry powder. Odd supply of kitchen utensils i.e., no tongs. The boiler, if on at night was directly under the main bedroom and was noisy. Freezer in the bathroom????? The music speaker system is one with a fitting for an iPod/phone which haven't existed for some timed therefore unusable. The parking was OK but occasionally a tight squeeze trying to get in beside the other 2 cars.The welcome hamper was Ok, some milk, waitrose croissants, jam and butter. Helen very nice and helpful.
Great place to stay with easy walk to the shops and pubs. We chose several different ways into town past beautiful homes and lovely gardens. Amazing views out the second floor windows (this comment from my 12 year old) We had everything we needed and appreciated the welcome basket of breakfast items from the hosts, as we arrived late on the first night. The cottage was very clean, beds were comfortable and we appreciated the on site parking. We never needed the car to explore the town. Chipping Campden proved to be the perfect town to stay in. A little quieter than other towns we explored. Many great walks on public footpaths and the Cotswold Way. Great food and extremely friendly people at the Tourist Information and businesses we visited.
