Heaven in the Cotwolds

  • 5 of 5

I spent four weeks at Twine Cottage in what could be best describe as adverse weather conditions - snow and cold pretty much every day. Despite this, I had the most fabulous four weeks in large part due to Twine Cottage and the town of Chipping Camden. The cottage is exactly as Rosie describes it - cozy and charming with beautiful detail but nicely updated. I experienced the little garden patio in the snow and then just as I left, with the flowers and greenery just emergin. It was truly lovely. Chipping Camden, in my view, is the most perfect of all the Cotswold villages. It is absolutely beautiful but not touristy - a true town with shops, tea shops, a library, bakery, butcher. You feel as though you are living the life of those who are fortunate to call this town their home. It is also incredibly well situated so that you can easily visit all the towns and villages in Gloucestershire, Oxfordshire and to even go north to Stratford on Avon. It is absolutely idyllic and I would highly, highly recommend Twine Cottage and Chipping Camden.

Ideal location

  • 4 of 5

Lovely cosy cottage, would reccommend Twine cottage if you want a traditional thatched experience. The cottage is in a perfect location if you want to explore the surrounding areas, it's central to explore other areas of the Cotswolds and minutes walk from restaurants and bars, but still retains its charming and peaceful ambience. A beautiful village, Chipping Campden is one of the prettiest places you could visit. My partner and I loved our stay.

Period Charm with Modern Amenities

  • 5 of 5

You feel you have just stepped into a Thomas Hardy novel ( OK it isn't the imaginary Wessex but bear with me ); with all the amenities including tv, wi-fi and a powerful hair dryer. Romantic without being too precious and in the loveliest town imaginable. Everyone friendly, great food, and walks to walk where the wind blows and the sheep meander. I can't picture a more perfect spot. Indeed, far away from the madding crowd.

LOVED everything about Twine Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I arrived to find Twine Cottage was even more charming in person than it appears in the descriptions. The kitchen was outfitted with everything we could possibly need - the bathroom spacious and clean. The bed was extremely comfortable. Overall, we enjoyed our two week stay here immensely and are already considering a return visit we LOVED it so much. It's such a perfect location for walking the Cotswold Way which is starts just down the road and it is also a good homebase for travels to Stonehenge, Avebury, Kiftsgate and Hidcote gardens which are only a ten minute drive away. Twine Cottage is such a well cared for and welcoming place to return to at the end of the day that you won't want to leave. I highly recommend this property for your vacation, you will not be disappointed. Rosie provided all the information prior to our trip and also at the cottage itself about local restaurants and attractions which helped us explore the area with ease. The people in the village of Chipping Campden are so friendly, and we found many favourite pubs and restaurants, as well as local stores for everyday items that made our stay extremely comfortable and fun. You MUST see this place to believe it.

Quintessentially English Countryside

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful cottage with all the charm we were looking for, but with the updates that make for a very comfortable stay. Rosie has folders with detailed information about everything a person needs to know about the cottage and the Chipping Campden area.

Loved the beautiful private front garden area. Several mornings we sat outside drinking coffee and eating some of the delicious fresh pastries we got from the shops on High Street. We also enjoyed sitting outside in the afternoon drinking a glass of wine and eating cheese and fruit. The center of town is within easy walking distance from the cottage (took us under 5 minutes). I especially liked that we didn't have to get in the car and drive to town, then find a place to park once we got there!

Everyone we met was very friendly and helpful.

Highly, highly recommend!!!!!!!

Car: not necessary

The Cotswolds is charming all year round and visiting the Cotswolds is a wonderful experience. Officially the largest Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in England, it isn’t hard to understand why the Cotswolds is known and loved by the English and foreign travellers alike.

Many come to the Cotswolds for the wonderful country walks, cycling along the highways and byways, exploring the wonderfully unique boutiques, each charming town and village have to offer and relaxing with a fabulous cream tea or sitting in front of an open fire at the end of the day.

Spring is a wonderful time to see the lambs and bluebell woods. The many unique Cotswold Cottage Gardens and country houses are a great way to enjoy the lighter summer evenings, whereas Westonbirt and Batsford Arboretum comes alive with its vast array of stunning leaf displays in autumn. And the Christmas markets are a wonderful way to start the festive season. Really, the Cotswolds has something for everyone of all ages and all tastes.

Twine Cottage is also within easy access to other quaint Cotswold villages such as Stow-on-the-Wold, Bourton on the Water and Broadway and National Trust properties of Hidcote and Snowshill Manor and the larger towns of Stratford Upon Avon, Morton in Marsh and Cheltenham.

For walkers, the Cotswold Way starts in Chipping Campden.
