The Old Studio in Chipping Campden is a dream stay for those who appreciate a clean, well-appointed and beautifully decorated country cottage.
The cottage is not large, but it is very comfortable and snuggly. There is a living area downstairs with a large t.v., which is open to the dining and kitchen areas. The living area has a love seat and two large chairs - all clean and comfortable. The kitchen is well-appointed - as a matter of fact, we cooked a full Christmas dinner while we were staying in the cottage and all necessary utensils and cookware were available. There is also a small laundry room on the first floor with a washing machine and drying rack. One of the best features of the ground floor is a bathroom with a stand-up shower featuring a rain shower head and always enough hot water!
The second floor features two bedrooms, a small bathroom, and a landing area. We found the beds to be comfortable, and again, everything is clean and tastefully decorated. The bathroom is small and has a narrow tub with a hand-held shower head. We found it to be adequate, and it was convenient to have a bathroom on the upper level.
We stayed in the cottage over Christmas so were not able to take advantage of the patio and outside seating area, but it would be pleasant to sit outside and enjoy a cocktail in the private courtyard area.
The host, Helen, was lovely and saw to all of our needs. She immediately responded to emails and phone calls, and promptly refunded our security deposit.
Chipping Campden is a great example of a historic Cotswold village with wonderful restaurants and cute little shops. The cottage is within easy walking distance of the High Street. We found Chipping Campden to be a perfect location for day trips to neighboring villages such as the popular Bourton-on-the-Water and Stow-on-the-Wold, and attractions like Shakespeare's Stratford-upon-Avon and Warwick Castle.
We would recommend the Old Studio highly to anyone looking for an adorable, comfortable and snuggly cottage in the Cotswolds.
