Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in Chipping Campden - Hoo Cottage

2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, sleeps 3

Hoo Cottage is the quintessential Cotswold stone, thatched cottage. Its first registered owners took occupation in 1639 just a few years after the death of William Shakespeare when King Charles I was on the throne and the English Civil War was still three years hence. Almost 400 years later it is Grade II listed and tucked away in a quiet residential area of Chipping Campden. To enter the cottage is to take a step back in time but without the discomforts of 17th century life. Its low ceilings, exposed beams, flagstone floors, log fire and uneven walls are all redolent of times past but the fittings and furnishings make it a most comfortable holiday home. The cottage garden with its flower and shrub borders provides a secluded haven from the outside world. Children welcome. A dog may be accepted by prior arrangement at a charge of £4.00 per night.

Short breaks available out of season. Prices on request.

Hoo Cottage, a Grade II listed thatched cottage, is ideally located a short walk from Chipping Campden High Street, often described as the most perfect in England. The honey coloured stone buildings were built mainly by wealthy medieval wool merchants between the 14th and 17th centuries. From thatched cottages to elegant town houses, from the grand wool church of St James to the imposing, open-sided Market Hall erected in 1627, Chipping Campden is a constant delight. Its wealth of small shops, good restaurants, tea rooms, hotels and pubs provide for all tastes.

The town nestles in a valley in the North Cotswolds whose rolling hills and picturesque villages form an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Footpaths abound, whilst Broadway, Stow-on-the-Wold and Bourton-on-the-Water are only a short drive away. Shakespeare's Stratford upon Avon, Warwick Castle and Blenheim Palace are within easy reach and, for garden enthusiasts, the renowned Hidcote Gardens is just one of several local attractions.
