Sansons Cottage sleeps up to four guests in two bedrooms (one king and a super-king/twin offering flexible sleeping) and is perfectly placed off the high street of the popular ancient town of Chipping Campden in the Cotswolds. A Grade II listed cottage, Sansons is packed full of all the traditional character you would expect for a cottage that is almost two hundred years old, yet it has all the modern conveniences required for a comfortable break.
Split over three floors, the cottage is welcoming and beautifully presented with appeal that lasts all year round with a log fire for winter nights (along with central heating) and a cottage garden with patio for balmy summer evenings sitting outside.
Perfectly placed, Sansons Cottage sits in one of the Cotswold's finest medieval towns, within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and has excellent amenities on its doorstep. Chipping Campden's high street is lined with historic honey coloured architecture which is both impressive and home to a great selection of pubs, restaurants and interesting shops to browse.
Surrounding by beautiful rolling countryside, the area provides superb opportunities for both walkers and cyclists - the perfect way to explore the pretty Cotswolds villages without the use of a car where you can stop and enjoy lunch on route at one of the many excellent pubs.
Possibly one of the most photographed towns in the Cotswolds, Chipping Campden is within easy driving distance of Broadway, the historic market town of Stow-on-the-Wold and Moreton in Marsh to name just a few. It is also an ideal central base from which to explore the wider area with a multitude of attractions including Cheltenham, Blenheim Palace in Woodstock, Oxford, Stratford-upon-Avon (the birthplace of Shakespeare), Warwick Castle and even the Roman City of Bath - all providing great days out. There are ancient towns full of history and spectacular architecture and quintessentially English villages just waiting to be explored.
With a host of excellent amenities on the doorstep and a great selection of attractions within easy reach, Cider Mill Cottage is a lovely self-catering retreat whether you want to arrive by car or leave it at home.
