  • "A dear little cottage in a great location - would definitely book again."

    Unfortunately parking is a nightmare and it was a shame that the firestick for internet TV had disappeared. The company were quick to respond to a problem with the front door which was appreciated.

  • "Lovely, comfortable, clean cottage, perfect for two couples and a dog."

    Excellent kitchen, although a few extra dishes and utensils (grater) would be useful. It was delightful sitting in the garden for meals. Great location for shops, eating places, walks and travelling around. Would definitely recommend and hope to return. Many thanks.

  • "A pretty, well-appointed cottage with lots of thoughtful touches."

    The location and setting were ideal for exploring Chipping Campden (as previously mentioned by other reviewers, parking could well be an issue at very busy times - as it happens, we were lucky to find a free space in the same spot every day of our visit). The shared bathroom was somewhat cramped but the shower was excellent and the ensuite bathroom was very nice. We really liked the large and well-equipped kitchen and we enjoyed sitting out at the patio table, where it was peaceful and quiet. All in all, we enjoyed our stay here!

    Thank you for your feedback. We are pleased that you enjoyed your time at Royal Oak Cottage and exploring the local area. Best wishes, Manor Cottages Property Owner

  • "Lovely cottage in a great location."

    We found the cottage comfortable with excellent facilities and a good-sized attractive garden. Great kitchen too - and clean throughout. There were some minor issues with taps needing tightening in their fastenings, a catch needs to be replaced on a bedroom window and one or two of the three toilet seats need tightening up. Minor issues, but it is these things you notice, particularly when it is warm and you want to open a window at night to allow a breeze.

    Thank you for taking the time to provide this feedback. We're glad you enjoyed the cottage and garden. Thank you also for bringing some minor issues to our attention which have been passed on to the Property Manager. Best wishes Manor Cottages Property Owner

  • "Great cottage."

    Cosy and quiet. Location is perfect with many walks on the doorstep and plenty of pubs and restaurants to choose from in Chipping Campden a short walk away. Kitchen is a great size with all the equipment you need. Highly recommend and will definitely come back. Thank you.

    Thank you for your lovely feedback, it's always nice to hear how much guest's have enjoyed staying with us and making the most of the lovely walks and places to visit in the area. We hope to welcome you back again soon. Kind regards Character Cottages Property Owner

  • "Lovely little cottage, comfy beds and bedding, well equipped and a nice touch to leave cake and milk on arrival, thank you."

    We couldnt find the house manual but it didnt really matter. The only slight downside is that it would have been easier if the garden was enclosed for the dogs. All in all a very pleasant stay.

    Thank you for your kind feedback, we're so pleased you enjoyed a warm welcome and had a lovely time at the cottage. The garden is a delightful space to relax (we hope you saw the mention of it not being enclosed in the description). Thank you for mentioning the house manual, we will check that. Best wishes, Character Cottages Property Owner

  • "We really enjoyed our stay at Royal Oak Cottage."

    It was so charming and well-equipped, including a dishwasher. Cannot fault the cleaning. Beds were comfortable, towels and linen were excellent quality. Dog-friendly, great location, big garden with outdoor seating, plenty of eating options close by, and also a small Co-op within a few minutes’ walking distance. *Couldn’t ask for more for a cottage rental in the Cotswolds!* We would definitely return another time. Found the booking and key collection arrangements all super-straightforward too. And the neighbour was also lovely! Tip top! :-)

    Thank you so for much for providing us with such lovely feedback. It's great to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Royal Oak Cottage and are thinking of returning again! We can't wait to welcome you back and hope it is one day soon! All the best, Character Cottages. Property Owner

  • "This was a beautifully presented property, clean and well maintained, in a perfect location, spacious and at the same time cosy and neat."

    My only suggestion is that it would be great to be able to fasten the window open in the front bedroom - there is no way of doing this, so the window just swings shut, which in this hot weather is frustrating and uncomfortable. A simple casement stay would solve the problem. Other than this the house is in excellent condition, and is a prefect base for visiting Chipping Campden and the Cotswolds.

    Thank you for this lovely feedback and we're delighted you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for the suggestion re the bedroom window - we will look into this. We hope to welcome you again. Property Owner

  • "Cleanliness was disgusting, rubbish bins left full."

    Neighbors put rubbish at our door because the cleaning company used the neighbors bins, so we was arguing with the neighbors. The front and back gardens are a disaster, not taken care of. Super small TV in the front room. No TV upstairs. Blinds don’t fit and close fully. Overall the owner has led the property go. Very poor and would neve stay again.

    Thank you for your feedback. We can only apologise for the experience you have had during your stay at Royal Oak Cottage. This is not the service or standards that we want to provide our guests with. Please know that we are on hand 24 hours a day to assist you during your stay and would have come out to the property to rectify these issues. We do list the property with one TV in the lounge and you can see from the images the size of the TV, as well as the bedrooms not including one. The garden has now been tended to and we apologise once again for the experience you have had at Royal Oak Cottage. Best wishes, Character Cottages. Property Owner

  • "We arrived to find that the cottage had not been cleaned."

    The beds were still left as unmade, rubbish left etc. This was so disappointing and embarrassing as we had paid a lot for the cottage and had invited our American cousins so not a good start. This was not helped by the apparent lack of concern that this had happened. We were just told that it had been 'overlooked' !! Having said that, it was good to be able to get hold of someone at 5pm on a Sunday ( when we should have been getting in to the cottage). The cottage itself is nice though a little basic. The location is absolutely fabulous and the Cotswolds a great place for a holiday.

    Thank you so much for providing this feedback. We are very sorry that you encountered these issues on arrival but glad that you were able to enjoy your stay there and that you also loved the location. Your comments have been passed on to the housekeeping team to ensure this will not happen again. We hope this hasn't left a lasting impact and that we can welcome you back in the future.

  • "This was the second time we have stayed at this lovely cottage."

    It is ideal for two couples. It has a good outdoor space for sunny days. Perhaps a few more cups and glasses would be good. Also a note to where the outdoor bins are we couldn’t find them. Overall a great stay and we look forward to visiting again in the future.

    It's wonderful to hear it's the second time you have visited us. It is a good base to explore everything and thank you for the comments about a few more cups and glasses, we will pass this comment onto the owner. We will also check the details about bins are easy to find at the cottage. We look forward to making it a 3rd time in the future. Property Owner

  • "We very much enjoyed our stay at the cottage."

    It was spacious and comfortable. It was even more enjoyable to stay in as it had been done up from the pictures on the site so was even more well presented than anticipated. The only things that could improve: the nespresso coffee machine unfortunately did not work so that needs looking at, and due to the rain and weather, the front door was extremely difficult to close and lock, so it may need looking at too. My only other suggestion would be to provide a few logs for the first fire of the stay as we couldn't find any in Campden when we got there the Friday night and it would have been nice to have a fire that evening on arrival. But other than that a really wonderful stay and my parents are already planning to book it again! Thank you.

    Thank you for your lovely feedback. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again soon. Property Owner

The property

Royal Oak Cottage dates back to the early 19th century and is a beautifully presented Grade ll listed property, sleeping four guests in two homely bedrooms, in Chipping Campden.

Perfect for a small family, group of friends, or a couple seeking a relaxing break in the Cotswolds.

Step up the four stone steps and in through the front door, which welcomes you into a small entrance hall, handy for storing your coats and shoes, before opening up into the bright and airy sitting room, where you and your loved ones can curl up on the four-seater sofa or one of the two armchairs and feel the warmth from the woodburning stove keeping you toasty whilst you watch a film on the Freeview TV, or get lost in the pages of a compelling novel.

Rustle up delicious home-cooked meals with the help from the contemporary facilities in the kitchen, before retreating to the large wooden dining table and enjoy your meal with a glass of wine to toast to an exciting holiday that lies ahead.

Take yourself off for some peace and quiet into the study room, which overlooks the garden and contains a cloakroom with a basin and WC.

Outside, the enchanting, tiered garden offers a wonderful space to enjoy the sunshine and has additional seating, perfect for alfresco dining.

The second tier has a pathway that weaves through leafy trees, shrubs, flowers and herbs where you can soak in the sun and enjoy total serenity.

When the sun goes down, make your way up to the first-floor where you have a choice of two welcoming bedrooms, one with a king-size bed and the other with a double bed, both with ample hanging and storage space, which share the floor with the bathroom where you can indulge in a soak amongst the bubbles in the bath!

In the morning, make yourself a steaming cup of coffee using the Nespresso coffee machine, before getting ready for the day and heading out into Chipping Campden where you can enjoy a delicious breakfast at The Bantam Tea Rooms before heading over to Dover’s Hill to enjoy the stunning views over the Vale of Evesham where you can join the Cotswold Way, which is a 100 mile walking trail, taking you through picturesque villages, breath-taking countryside and famous ancient sites and if you start in Chipping Campden, walk to the next stop which is Broadway and have an enjoyable meal at The Swan.

Train enthusiasts will be delighted to discover Evesham Vale Light Railway, which operates in nearby Evesham Country Park and covers a mile through the park, including a lengthy, scenic ride through the fruit orchards.

Cotswold Falconry Centre, in Batsford, houses over 130 birds of 60 different species, where there are flying displays, aviaries and critically endangered birds, an educational and fun day out for all.

For a splendid getaway to the unspoilt countryside Gloucestershire, stay at Royal Oak Cottage.

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.
