A characterful Cotswold stone cottage tucked away on a working farm, boasting plenty of traditional charm thanks to a host of original features.

Hidden amidst a working farm on the outskirts of the northern Cotswold village of Weston-sub-Edge is Sundial Cottage; a traditional farmhouse escape for up to four guests, named in honour of the unique sundial sitting proudly above its front door. Stepping inside from its commanding stable oak doorway, you immediately get a feel of the cottage’s history thanks to the variety of original and traditional features which sit proudly throughout the property. Oak beams adorn the ceilings, exposed Cotswold stone walls line the cottage’s ground floor and traditional tiled flooring can be found throughout; what the cottage lacks in the contemporary, it more than makes up for with old-world charm.

Sleeping up to four guests across two well-appointed bedrooms, this is a cottage for those in search of a taste of Cotswold farming life, with working stables and a busy farm sitting directly across the courtyard from its front door. With a small, enclosed lawned garden and perfectly petite outdoor dining patio, it’s great for those who want privacy without the feeling of seclusion, with the buzzing market town of Chipping Campden just a 5-minute drive away.

​Only one small dog please, thank you.

Downstairs

Entrance

An impressive oak stable door acts as the welcoming entrance point to Sundial Cottage, a real nod to the history of the property and its time as a working farm home. From the off, the cottage’s rustic charm is evident through the traditional tiled flooring, oak features and country-cream walls which line the entrance hall.

The Kitchen

To the left of Sundial Cottage’s entrance hall sits its charming farmhouse style kitchen. Spacious and well-equipped for catering, rustic pine units afford the space a genuine country vibe, whilst the exposed Cotswold stone wall and beams lining the ceiling add to the sense of rustic charm. At one end sits a dining table for up to four guests, plus high chair should you need, whilst at the other a window floods the space with light, giving you the perfect viewing point from which to observe the goings-on of the working farm opposite.

Living Room

To the right of the entrance hall is its living space and it’s in here that the cottage’s history can really be felt. Dual aspect, with windows overlooking the farmyard to the front and greenery to the rear of the cottage, the space boasts original features everywhere you turn: low, beamed ceilings; a large stone fireplace with working gas fire in the centre of an exposed Cotswold stone wall; an elegant patterned carpet that wouldn’t look out of place in a grand Edwardian manor. In here you’ll also find a TV and plenty of cosy seating, making it the ideal spot to unwind in no matter what the weather is doing outside.

Downstairs WC

A handy addition to the cottage is its downstairs WC, tucked to the left of the entrance hall as you step through the door.

Upstairs

Head upstairs and you’ll find the cottage’s two bedrooms and family bathroom, all boasting the same Cotswold country charm of the property’s downstairs living spaces.

Bedroom 1

Bedroom 1 is the master of the home, sympathetically furnished to offer an old-world charm with plenty of contemporary comforts. Decorated in an attractive palette of country creams, in here you’ll find a 5ft bed, built-in wardrobe, dresser and handy seating area with coffee table. Curious souls will love discovering the secret outdoor staircase leading from the bedroom through a private glass doorway along the cottage’s exterior; great for views of the garden and surrounding farmland, plus easy garden access for lovers of the great outdoors.

Bedroom 2

Opposite Bedroom 1 sits Bedroom 2, a spacious twin that’s great for kids or adults who don’t mind having their own bed space during their stay. Furnished with twin beds (which could be pushed together should you prefer), the room benefits from a wardrobe, dresser and views over the shared courtyard; perfect for little ones who want to watch the goings-on of a working farm.

Family Bathroom

Sat between the two bedrooms is the cottage’s main bathroom. Traditional in style, you’ll find a bath with full-height overhead shower, toilet and basin, plus pretty, green floral tiling which gives it a charming country feel.

Outside

To the side of the cottage you’ll find its own private enclosed garden; a spacious, lawned area with patio complete with outdoor dining furniture, ideal for those wanting to make the most of its charcoal BBQ. Enclosed by wooden fencing yet easily accessible from the cottage’s front door, dogs and younger guests will be free to stretch their legs to their heart’s content here, with the suntrap patio offering a great spot for adults to enjoy a sundowner or two in the great outdoors.

Local Amenities

Local Amenities

The nearest local amenities can be found in Chipping Campden, just a 5-minute drive from Sundial Cottage. On the town’s High Street, you’ll find a well-stocked Co-Operative Food, well-equipped for the basic grocery amenities that you’ll need during your stay. For those in search of something a little special, Fillet & Bone, also situated on the High Street, offers beautiful artisan produce sourced from across the Cotswolds; rare-breed meat, seasonal vegetables, fresh breads, charcuterie and freshly-baked cakes and patisserie can all be found here. Slightly further afield, nearby Broadway (10-minute drive) offers a Warner’s Budgensand Nisa, whilst Evesham (25-minute drive) is closest for major supermarkets; an M&S Simply Food, Tesco Superstore, LIDL, ALDI, Morrisonsand Co-Operative Foodcan all be found there.

If you fancy taking the hassle out of your stay completely, we recommend planning ahead with a grocery delivery; Ocado, Sainsbury’s, Tesco and Morrisons all deliver to Sundial Cottage.

For drinks and a bite to eat, the local Seagrave Arms is within walking distance of the cottage (less than 5-minutes on foot); an award-winning inn serving up tasty all-day dining options. There’s even a pretty beer garden, offering the perfect spot for a sundowner after a busy day exploring the Cotswolds.

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.
