Number Six is a welcoming terraced holiday cottage in Chipping Campden. Made from locally quarried Cotswold stone, it sleeps four people in two bedrooms and is beautifully decorated to reflect the style of the Arts and Crafts that flourished in the town a century ago. Though the cottage is on Sheep Street, just off the medieval high street and close to the centre of town, it's peaceful and quiet with an open plan layout and a sunny courtyard garden with bistro tables and chairs. The arrangement suits couples and families, with children and one well-behaved dog welcome.
Chipping Campden is a stylish town with great shops for stocking up on food for your self-catering holiday and a choice of cafes, pubs and restaurants for dining out. As one of the main Cotswold wool towns (the others including Stow-on-the-Wold and Burford), you can see its history in places like Grevel House and Woolstaplers Hall, both built in the 1300s, and in the market square, which dates from the 1600s. It boasts more than 270 listed buildings, many of which still fulfill the purpose for which they were built. Even its High Street was built wide enough to accommodate flocks of sheep on their way to be sold. Outside of town, there are gorgeous footpaths and cycling routes through the countryside shaped by the magnificent Cotswold Lion sheep, brought here by the Romans and farmed for millennia. It's no wonder this area is a favourite holiday destination for many, some of whom end up moving here to keep living the Cotswold dream.
Local attractions include Hidcote Manor and its beautiful gardens, the gardens at Kiftsgate Court, or Snowshill Manor and its very fragrant Lavender Farm. Walk to Dover's Hill and Broadway Tower, admire the displays at Court Barn Museum and the Old Silk Mill. Animal lovers can visit Cotswold Wildlife Park, Birdland Park and Gardens, and Cotswold Farm Park. Sudeley Castle and Blenheim Palace are within reach for a day out, as are Stratford-Upon-Avon, Oxford, Bath, Cheltenham, Warwick and Gloucester.
At the end of a fun day exploring the largest designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in England, you can return to Number Six for a relaxed meal in the late evening sunshine before settling down in front of the log burner for a cosy night in.
Number Six is a lovely cottage with an open plan living area downstairs and bedrooms and bathroom upstairs. The decor features antique and upcycled pieces together with modern items to blend style and comfort.
