  • "Perfect cosy cottage for a quiet Cotswold break."

    Chipping Camden is so quaint, a great base to explore surrounding areas too! The memorial garden opposite is nice to stroll round and the museum gives lots of interesting facts about the area. We had a lovely meal In the curry house. and can also recommend the Chinese takeaway if you don’t want to venture out. Lots of amazing little interior and antique shops to browse round. We had a great facial in one of the hotel spas off the high street. The afternoon tea in Bamford tea rooms was yummy too. The fire was wonderful in the cottage so cosy to curl up in front of with a book! The shower has really good water pressure, both bedrooms were very clean Extremely comfortable beds. The only problem we occurred was the kitchen light switches on the wall as you walked into the kitchen kept tripping the electricity out! There is a small market on Friday mornings with lots of creative products on offer. Plenty of independent restaurants to try with really satisfying menus. The eight bells pub was great. Also a few local stores to purchase fresh produce from if you prefer to stay in and cook. We would 100% definitely book Cotstone again.

    Thank you for your kind feedback. We are glad you enjoyed your stay at our cottage. Sorry you experienced a problem with the kitchen lights. I visited on Friday to have a look myself and it turned out the issue is with one of the spotlights. It had water in it, so we think we have a leak coming from the shower upstairs. We have managed to isolate the light so the power turns on until we get the issue fixed. Property Owner

  • "We had a fantastic weeks holiday staying at Cotstone cottage the property was lovely and located in the perfect area of the village."

    The locals were very friendly and the local pubs and restaurants were very good. The whole experience was further enhanced by the beautiful unseasonable weather which made our walks along the Costwolds way even more enjoyable , would definitely recommend.

  • "We've stayed in several holiday cottages during the pandemic, and we have absolutely fallen in love with both Chipping Campden and this cottage in particular."

    The cottage is really well appointed, most of the furnishings, crockery etc are sourced from shops in the village which is a really nice touch, the cottage was really well finished, clean and the rooms were nicely decorated. We ate out 5 of our 7 nights and the quality of food locally is incredible, the locals are really welcoming, the pubs and most restaurants are all dog friendly and the standards are phenomenal. The Cotswold way walk is pretty much on your doorstep, but there's also 4 or 5 other bridleways and marked walks nearby so we didn't need to move the car all week. We will definitely be booking again!

  • "Rubbish still at cottage."

    ..so as we left there must have been 2 or 3 weeks worth. ..garden needed bit of attention..grass needed cutting and decking/slabbing not been swept t for a while. Freezer desperately needed defrosting.

  • "Although the cottage was beautiful and in a fabulous location we feel that the management company/cleaning company let the owner down somewhat."

    There were a few issues which we feel we should raise. 1. As you should be aware, when we first arrived we could not access the rear garden as the wrong key had been left in the lock. We tried to call the contact number of the property managing agent without success so called Sykes customer service. They also tried to reach the contact and the owner but in the meantime we found an alternative key in the back of the drawer which enabled us to gain access. 2. The rear garden grass had not been maintained so we reported this and the owner came round the next day to cut it for us which was great but this should have already been done before our arrival. 3. Given we couldn't check in until 5pm and checkout is 10am we were expecting the property to be immaculately clean. It wasn't. There was a good layer of dust and dirt on top of light fittings in the kitchen and on the wine rack and cooker hob as well as on light bulbs in the lamps in the main bedroom. We appreciate that in a cottage dust can build up but this was a good few weeks worth. In the time of COVID we expected the cleanliness to have been stepped up. 4. Upon arrival at the property we noted that the glass bottle recycling box was full, the cardboard bag was full and the black bin was half full. As the following Monday was a Bank Holiday there was no refuse collection due until 6th September. It looked like the previous guests checked out on 23rd August (if we go by the guest book), so why was no alternative attempt made to empty the bins prior to our arrival? The state of the bins was wholly unacceptable. This is a reflection on the cleaning company and ultimately Sykes Cottages, NOT the owner. 5. We enquired as to whether there would be a mid-stay clean after our first week as we were staying for 2 weeks. Sykes said they would find out and come back to us. We didn't hear back. We stay in holiday properties every year and usually for 2 weeks and we have always had a full clean provided after the first week so we were surprised this didn't happen, again especially in the time of COVID. The owner has a beautiful cottage with high specifications, in a truly fabulous location, but we feel they are being let down by those who are running the cleaning and general management of the property. We hope this can be looked into and rectified for the future.

  • "We had a wonderful holiday at Cotstone Cottage, it was a real WOW factor when we opened the door, it is a beautiful cottage so cosy and really felt like home, the whole house also had the most gorgeous aroma every day we returned from our adventures, thanks to the Wild Fig Reed diffuser."

    The cottage was so comfortable and gave us everything we could possibly want. We loved it and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend highly to everyone, we are already working out when we can book another visit. Also it was a great base for exploring the Cotswolds, we visited the Cotswold Wildlife Park, Butterfly World in Stratford Upon Avon, Cirencester Roman Corinium Museum as well as Blenheim Palace, we highly recommend all of these venues.

  • "This cottage was beautifully decorated."

    Its location was perfect and close to several restaurants. We would recommend. In terms of feedback, it would have been good to know that some of the beams were very low and susceptible to tall people having to duck and be aware of potential accidents.

  • "The cottage was in the prefect location, and it was decorated to a very high standard."

    Had a lovely home from home feel. It has a lovely garden with comfortable furniture. Our only complaint was the second bedroom didn’t have any wardrobe or drawer space. Our clothes had to be hung on coat hooks situated on one of the walls. We only stayed for 4 nights so it was fine living from a suitcase and using the hooks but you would struggle if staying for a week or more.

  • "The cottage was very nice and as advertised."

    It was very tastefully furnished with a lot of attention to every detail. Everything was of top quality. The location was perfect at the heart of the beautiful village of Chipping Campden. The only thing that can be improved is the 10am check-out time at departure which is very tight.

About the location

CHIPPING CAMPDEN

Moreton-in-Marsh 8 miles; Stratford-upon-Avon 12 miles

This market town defines the saying "good things come in small packages" as it proves itself to be a wonderful place for tourists to stay. Chipping Campden sits in the northern part of the Cotswolds and boasts many historical buildings from St. James' church where the Chipping Camden Music Festival is held every year, to the early 17th century market hall upon which the town prides itself. Not only does the town have a rich history but much more, the high street is laced with charming Cotswold stone buildings with a range of shops and pubs. Nearby there are several beautiful, formal gardens for you to wander through. Chipping Campden has held its own 'Olimpick Games' since the early 1600s including peculiar sports such as 'shin-kicking', most certainly worth lining your holiday up with to experience something so unique. For a dose of famous history, head to the birthplace of William Shakespeare in Stratford-upon-Avon just 12 short miles away, it offers some charming little buildings, bookshops, theatres and museums.
