Stepping in through a grand stable door from the cottage’s shared courtyard driveway you’ll enter a traditional farmhouse kitchen; a wonderful hub of the home, with bags of original character. Sitting proudly in the centre is a large oak dining table, adorned with a cleverly repurposed beer trough, plus mismatched pine seating for up to 6 guests to give the space a relaxed, rustic vibe. With exposed stone walls, original beams and quarry-tiled flooring, you’ll feel as though you’ve stepped back in time to the cottage’s original working farmhouse era, brought into the modern day with all the mod-cons you need for an enjoyable stay. We love the room’s large window, affording you stunning views of the rolling fields beyond the cottage’s private garden; the perfect spot for countryside gazing with your morning cuppa.
Through another large stable-style door from the kitchen sits the cottage’s living space; a large, open-plan area with additional dining table for up to five guests, ideal for overspill or when the adults need a little space. In here, the cottage’s rustic-charm continues thanks to its exposed stone walls, beamed ceiling, patterned tile flooring and enormous stone fireplace, kitted out with a wood burner for cosy evenings in by the fire. With plenty of seating available courtesy of a selection of comfy, sink-in sofas, a TV complete with Sky and DVD player will keep all ages entertained after a fun day exploring the nearby towns and villages. The living room also benefits from French Doors which open directly into the cottage’s own private garden, with an additional set on the other side giving optional access to the walled garden of the property’s sister cottage; great for large groups sharing the two.
Field House Cottage’s ground-floor bedroom can be found just beyond the living area, ideal for the less mobile or those who simply like to spread out. Configured as a twin, children or adults who don’t mind sharing will have a cosy space to rest their heads here, the room itself boasting the same exposed beams, stone walls and fantastic views out to the surrounding Cotswold landscapes of the cottage’s living area. There’s a handy built-in wardrobe for storage, plus a snug en-suite; small but perfectly formed, complete with shower, basin, toilet and stone flooring.
Up the angular wooden staircase from the cottage’s open-plan living/dining area sit three further bedrooms and the property’s family bathroom, all accessed from a spacious landing area flooded with natural light.
Found on the left-hand side as you alight the staircase is Bedroom 3, another spacious bedroom benefitting from high ceilings, exposed beams and plenty of natural light courtesy of two large windows. Country-casual in style thanks to its cream walls and floral fabrics, in here you’ll find a comfortable double bed and built-in wardrobe for storage, plus beautiful views across the surrounding fields.
Leading on from Bedroom 3 through a small doorway is the cottage’s own secret bedroom hideaway; an additional bedroom in the eaves of the house, perfect for little ones. In here, two twin beds offer a comfy spot for younger guests to get some shuteye, with playful fabrics, cuddly toys and a fun snakes and ladders rug making the space feel like their own secret den.
The cottage’s final bedroom sits to the right-hand side of the landing. In here, you’ll find a double bed and built-in wardrobe, plus the same attractive high ceilings, country-cream colour palette and wonderful natural light that can be found in Bedroom 3, courtesy of a large bright skylight.
Situated alongside Bedroom 4, the cottage’s attractive modern family bathroom is well-equipped with both a bath and spacious shower, plus a bright skylight, wooden-effect flooring and marbled tiling. Large enough to cope with plenty of guests, additional seating makes bath times with little ones a breeze.
To the rear of the property sits a fantastic private lawned garden; a huge space with amazing views out towards the surrounding fields, perfect for all ages to enjoy. With plenty of outdoor seating available courtesy of two sets of dining furniture, al fresco dinners here are as easy as pie, plus there’s a charcoal BBQ for those hankering for a flame-grilled feast. Perfect for groups in search of plenty of room in which to stretch their legs, younger guests have more than enough space to run free here, enclosed with wooden fencing to keep inquisitive explorers safely contained. While away the afternoon playing garden games, partaking in a game of football or simply sitting back and relaxing in the sun; we guarantee you’ll never tire of the surrounding views.

Chipping Campden is quite simply one of the finest towns in the Cotswolds – well preserved and full of history but also full of life and bustle.
Its elegant High Street is a delight, described by the historian, G.M. Trevelyan, as “the most beautiful village street now left in the island”: a broad gentle curve flanked on either side by an unbroken sweep of buildings covering a host of architectural styles with buildings dating back to the 14th century.
In the centre of the High Street stands the iconic Market Hall, now in the care and ownership of the National Trust, and built in 1627 by Sir Baptist Hicks to provide shelter for traders selling perishable goods like cheese and butter or precious goods like silks. The paving stones have been worn away by hundreds of years of busy trade – and it’s all too easy to imagine the noise and bustle of traders long ago.
Sir Baptist Hicks was a very wealthy silk merchant and vast and extravagant 17th century monuments to him and his family can be found in the town’s church. St James Church, the town’s most visible landmark, is one of the greates ‘wool’ churches in the Cotswolds, built with money from the flourishing medieval wool trade. It is famous for having one of the oldest altar tapestries and largest brasses in England.
In 1613, the newly enriched Sir Baptist Hicks began work on a splendid new house in Chipping Campden with equally fashionable formal gardens. Unfortunately not long after its completion it was burnt to the ground by retreating Royalist soldiers during the Civil War and little remains – two pepperpot lodges framing the gateway beside the church, and two exceptional Jacobean banqueting houses, which can be rented through the Landmark Trust.
The Court Barn Museum in the town tells the story of craft and design in the Cotswolds. C R Ashbee brought the Guild of Handicraft to the Old Silk Mill in the town in 1902. Unfortunately it did not prosper and in 1908 many artists had returned to London. However some stayed on, and the Hart family, descendants of George Hart, still have their workshops in the Old Silk Mill today.
The town has a lively calendar of events, including the famous Cotswold Olimpicks, founded in the 17th century by Captain Robert Dover and still celebrated every year – a bizarre mix of sports, games and village festivities.
Chipping Campden has no shortage of excellent places to eat, drink and stay in with some excellent Cotswold hotels, pubs and B&Bs, as well as plenty of holiday cottages to rent. Chipping Campden makes an excellent base for a holiday, with a number of notable gardens, including Hidcote and Kiftsgate, nearby and with wonderful walks in the area, including the 104 mile Cotswold Way, which starts in the town and follows the escarpment all the way to Bath.
