Boxtree Cottage is a very peaceful property, in the small Cotswolds village of Hidcote Boyce. The village is surrounded by beautiful open countryside, with numerous walks right on the doorstep. Despite the tranquil setting, the cottage is only 2 miles from the historic market town of Chipping Campden, with its many restaurants, shops and beautiful buildings, and less than 10 miles from Stratford-upon-Avon, the birthplace of William Shakespeare.

Dating from the 18th century, Boxtree Cottage has been beautifully refurbished and retains many character features, including a large stone fireplace with wood-burning stove, flag stone floors and ledge and brace doors. Complementing these period features, the house has modern facilities, including wireless internet access, TVs in most rooms and a beautiful kitchen. The cottage also has an enclosed garden, at the front of the house. The layout of the property makes Boxtree Cottage an ideal retreat for a couple, or a small family.

delightful cottage

  • 5 of 5

We booked this property late on the Friday evening and were delighted with the service we received from the manager and owner, enabling us to take the cottage from the Monday. The information we received was accurate and we were able to find the cottage easily.

The cottage was charming and spotlessly clean on our arrival, and the tea, coffeee, milk biscuits etc were very welcome. The bed was King size and very comfortable.

We loved the cottage, particularly in the evenings when we lit the wood burner. It took us a while one evening to get the oven working and the user guide didn't seem to be there but we got it working eventually so there was no problem.

Personally we had no mobile signal, I'm sure other providers would have been okay and there was excellent wi-fi so again not an issue..

We only ate out one night at the King's Arms in Mickleton. Highly recommended, good food and friendly service.

We would definitely recommend the cottage and in all probability will use it againn ourselves.

Chipping Campden is a small market town, notable for its elegant terraced High Street, dating from the 14th century to the 17th century (“Chipping” comes from the Old English word for a market-place and is found in other towns, such as Chipping Norton and Chipping Sodbury).

A rich wool trading centre in the Middle Ages, Chipping Campden enjoyed the patronage of wealthy wool merchants. Today it is a popular Cotswold tourist destination with old inns, hotels, specialist shops and restaurants. The High Street is lined with honey-coloured limestone buildings, built from the mellow locally quarried oolitic limestone known as Cotswold stone, and boasts a wealth of fine vernacular architecture. At its centre stands the Market Hall with its splendid arches, built in 1627.

Arts and Crafts Movement:

In the early 20th century Chipping Campden became known as a centre for the Cotswold Arts and Crafts Movement, following the move of Charles Robert Ashbee with the members of his Guild and School of Handicraft from the East End of London in 1902.

The Guild of Handicraft specialised in metalworking, producing jewellery and enamels, as well as hand-wrought copper and wrought ironwork, and furniture-making. A number of artists and writers settled in the area, including F. L. Griggs, the etcher, who built Dover's Court, one of the last significant Arts and Crafts houses, and set up the Campden Trust with Norman Jewson and others, initially to protect Dover's Hill from development. H. J. Massingham, the rural writer who celebrated the traditions of the English countryside, also settled near the town. Ananda Kentish Coomaraswamy, the Sri Lankan philosopher and art critic who was a colleague of Ashbee, settled at Broad Campden, where Ashbee adapted the Norman chapel for him.

Cotswold Olimpick Games:

Since the early 17th century Chipping Campden has been home to a championship of rural games, which later turned into Robert Dover's Cotswold Olympic Games. The Olympics are held every summer on the Friday evening following the late Spring Bank-holiday (usually late May or early June), on Dover's Hill, near Chipping Campden. Peculiar to the games is the sport of shin-kicking (hay stuffed down the trousers can ease one’s brave passage to later rounds).

The Cotswolds:

The Cotswolds are a range of hills in west-central England, sometimes called the 'Heart of England'. The name Cotswold means 'sheep enclosure in rolling hillsides”.

The Cotswolds are characterised by attractive small towns and villages, built of the underlying Cotswold stone (a yellow oolitic limestone). In the Middle Ages the wool trade made the Cotswolds prosperous and some of this money was put into the building of churches, leaving the area with a number of large handsome Cotswold stone 'wool churches'. The area remains affluent, which has encouraged the establishment of many high quality pubs, restaurants and antique shops.

Cotswold towns include Bourton-on-the-Water, Broadway, Burford, Chipping Norton, Cirencester, Moreton-in-Marsh, Northleach, Stow-on-the-Wold, Stroud and Winchcombe. The town of Chipping Campden is notable for being the home of the Arts and Crafts movement, founded by William Morris at the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th centuries. William Morris lived occasionally in Broadway Tower, a folly, now part of a country park. Chipping Campden is also known for the annual Cotswold Olympic Games, a celebration of sports and games dating back to the early 17th century.

The Cotswolds is the largest Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in England and Wales. Whilst the beauty of the Cotswold AONB is intertwined with the villages that seem to almost grow out of the landscape, the Cotswolds were primarily designated as an AONB for the rare limestone grassland habitats as well as the old growth beech woodlands that typify the area. These habitat areas are also the last refuge for many other flora and fauna with some so endangered they are protected under the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981. The uniqueness and value of the Cotswolds is engendered in the fact that five European Special Areas of Conservation, three National Nature Reserves and over 80 Sites of Special Scientific Interest are contained within the Cotswold AONB.
