About the property

Blakemans House - sleeps 6 guests in 3 bedrooms

Blakemans House in central Chipping Campden is the archetypal Cotswold holiday home.

Its mellow 18th Century Cotswold stone frontage hides a luxurious haven of tranquillity.

From its sunny south facing sitting room with log burning stove, to the kitchen fit for a chef, the solid oak conservatory dining room, the his and hers basins in the main bedroom's en suite and the multi room audio and visual system, everything has been designed to make your stay a memorable one.

The house is ideally situated for sampling the good selection of pubs, restaurants and tea shops in Chipping Campden, for browsing the small shops and galleries.

Children welcome. On street parking. Enter the cottage into the "L" shaped room Sitting Room. In the main body of the room there is comfortable seating for six.

The original main fireplace is purely ornimental, however in the "leg" of the room there is a woodburning stove. This is a light, sunny and fully carpeted room. With full gas central heating, flat screen televisions and Bose music system in all the rooms (except bathrooms), Sky television and telephone makes Blakemans House a lovely home away from home.

Stairs lead up from the sitting room to the first floor landing.

The lovely Kitchen has cream cupboards, granite worktops and a solid oak breakfast bar, a large Mercury range cooker with a gas hob (with wok ring) and electric ovens, a stainless steel extractor fan, Miele dishwasher, Amana American style side by side fridge freezer with ice cube maker, microwave, cafetiere and Duralit toaster.

A door from the sitting room leads into a Utility Room with Bosch washing machine and Bosch tumble dryer.

From the kitchen enter the Solid Oak Conservatory Dining Room with modern style glass topped dining table with craftsman made wrought iron base and matching chairs.

Bedroom One is situated on the top floor. It is a large room with full height sloping ceilings and a mass of exposed beams. Light with windows on two sides. The bedroom is beautifully furnished with a 5' wide King Size sleigh bed and bedside tables, flat topped desk and chair, kidney shaped antique dressing table and fitted cupboards on two sides. A door leads into the en suite bathroom where you can spoil yourself with the his and her basins, walk in shower, WC and bath - all surrounded in marble. The floor is tiled with underfloor heating and there is a heated towel rail.

Bedroom Two is a good size room with a 5' wide double sleigh bed and bedside tables. The lovely original elm polished wood floor is further enhanced with two sheepskin rugs. There are fitted cupboards down one side of the room, a mahogany chest of drawers and ladies armchair.

A door leads directly into the bathroom which can then be used as an en suite bathroom.

Bedroom Three has twin beds with 3' wide iron bedsteads in an ivory colour. Fitted cupboards and a chest of drawers provide ample storage space. Again this is a good size room with windows on two sides.

Two doors lead into the bathroom - one from Bedroom Two and the other from the landing.

This luxury bathroom has a walk in shower and bath, WC and basin - all surrounded in marble. The tiled floor has underfloor heating and there is a heated towel rail. There is also the en suite bathroom to Bedroom One with his and hers basins, walk in shower, bath. Once again, surrounded by marble and with a tiled floor which has underfloor heating and there is a heated towel rail.

The Garden is reached from the oak conservatory dining room and is on three levels. The first and middle levels are paved, the top level is grass with herbaceous borders. There is a garden table with chairs and umbrella. The middle level has ground level lighting. On pleasant evenings you can enjoy a barbecue. The garden adjoins the primary school playground so, during term time, children's voices will reach you during breaks from lessons.

New Year 2017/18

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was comfortable and well maintained, the only things we felt could be improved on, were the showers were hard to regulate the temperature.

The previous occupants rubbish was still present and the bins were full, we appreciate it was the Christmas period.

A set of champagne glasses would have been nice as it was New year and a decent frying pan.

But these things did not detract from a very pleasant stay.

Great location at the end of the High Street

  • 4 of 5

Had a lovely long weekend here with our 2 small dogs. Great, fully enclosed, garden and the dining room extension had a fully tiled floor which made it a good place for them to sleep etc. Comfortable house and great location for both shopping, eating out and dog walking. The only downside was that the front door of the lounge opens straight out onto the pavement leading up to the High St so as the house is single glazed you can hear everyone going past the windows chatting etc which made the dogs bark a bit. However, unless secondary glazing can be fitted, that goes with the territory of an older period property,

Great Cotswolds Adventure Base

  • 5 of 5

Blakeman House in Chipping Campden provides a perfect, centralized base for exploring the Cotswolds. The convenient location on the town's main street makes it easy to walk anywhere for restaurants and shopping. The deck in the back offers a perfect spot for outdoor dining or relaxing. The evenings in town were so peaceful during our stay - most tourists bus in and out, so staying overnight is a great way to experience the town. Appliances, particularly the kitchen and baths, are modern. We loved our stay and would return again. Some key things to note, which were of no concern for us but people should be aware before they book: a) the house does not have air conditioning. This is not unusual in the region. b) the bedrooms and bathrooms are on floors 2 and 3, up a narrow staircase. c) Street parking is available and is free. We never had a problem finding parking near the house. Communication with Beverly was great, her instructions to access the house and driving directions were clear. I highly recommend booking restaurant reservations in Chipping Campden in advance for any dining beyond a pub.

Car: not necessary

A short stroll through the town of Chipping Campden, allowing you to enjoy some of the more unusual sites in and around town. As you enter come up the hill into the outksirts of the town, on the left, the East & West Banqueting Houses stand supreme, overlooked by the impressive St James Church. Following Church Street round, noticing the Almhouses on your right, past The Eight Bells Inn allegedly built to allow the churchmasons somewhere to stay, through the one way system you reach a T junction with the famous High Street. Almost directly opposite the junction you will see the imposing Grevel House the oldest building in Campden built around 1380. Turn left into the High Street, the Old Grammar School is situated on your left, now an antiques shop of fine repute. As you make your way down the High Street on the right hand side The Old Market Place comes into view (Built in 1627), a first reminder that this was in fact a wool merchants town. This has been restored and maintained by the National Trust in recent years. Just beyond the Market Hall you will find the War Memorial and The Town Hall. The Town Hall originally a 14th century building used in the past as a Gaol, Court House and Wool Exchange. As you walk past the Town Square the imposing facade of The Cotswold House built in 1815 greets you. St Catherine's Church - photo by Betty StockerStaying on the right-hand side of the High Street, pass between Island House and the Baptist Church into Lower High Street, if you venture further up Lower High Street you will come to St Catharine's Roman Catholic Church with its locally crafted stained glass windows. Crossing the road you will find The Volunteer Inn, well named for its' history of having militia men sign on to serve King & Country.

Walking back down Lower High Street turn right into Sheep Street where a few yards on your right you will find the Old Silk Mill with its working Silversmith. Rejoining the High Street you will now come across the 17th Century inn, The Red Lion. There are numerous shops for both local inhabitants and tourist customers alike, the next building to look out for is The Noel Arms, with its archway leading down to George Lane. At the junction with Church Street carry on towards Cider Mill lane, however before you reach Cider Mill lane look for the archway which leads to the tranquil Ernest Wilson Memorial Garden which in turn leads back to St James Church.
