We had a great stay at the Old Studio. Helen and Michael were very helpful prior to our arrival and we were greeted with food for breakfast which was so convenient since we didn't know the area yet. We were traveling with our two teenage daughters and it was nice for them to have a room to themselves. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is strictly personal in that both the upstairs rooms and the upstairs bath have low ceilings and beams that come down which makes walking around difficult. My husband is 6'1 and I am 5'10 so we were constantly hunched over while in the bedroom. My daughter who is only 5'5 had no trouble navigating the rooms. Also note that there is no dryer in the Old Studio. A load of wash takes aprx. 3 hours but no dryer. Fortunately, Helen was gracious to allow me to complete my wash in her personal washer and dryer so it all got done. The cottage is a perfect location for seeing all the small towns in the Cotswolds and we walked to dinner every night. We had a wonderful 5 days and thank Helen and Michael for their hospitality!
If you need somewhere to chill and have as a starting point to visit the rest of the Cotswolds then this is the place. Helen left us a cool welcome pack of essentials and made herself available for anything we may need. The Old Studio was spacious, clean and very cosy too, with great amenities and proximity to The high Street where we don't lovely pubs, restaurants and other unique shops.
Would definitely recommend. We travelled with our 2 year old who loved it as well.
Many thanks Helen!
Beautiful and well equipped cottage, handily placed for a short walk to the village.Welcome pack was a nice touch.
Our first Christmas holiday away from home for many years - and our choice was inspired. Chipping Campden is simply a glorious location and the Old Studio was really home from home.
The owners, Helen and Michael, have provided just about everything which short stay visitors would possibly ever need. The cottage is spotless and beautifully presented, allowing us to produce a full Christmas dinner without any problem.
Even our two dogs settled in comfortably and were decidedly miffed at being being bundled off back home in the car. Would recommend the Old Studio to anybody seeking top class accommodation in a beautiful Cotswold town. Will certainly come back as soon as possible.
The Old Studio is very well equipped, clean, tidy and quiet. Great shower, nice towels and bedding. Everything was cosy and comfortable. A 10 min walk to lovely chipping campden with lots of pretty shops, pubs and eateries. A lovely relaxing stay.
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.
