The Central England/Cotswolds region
Chipping Campden is one of the most beautiful and historic wool market towns of the North Cotswolds. It is famous for the curving high street and mellow stone houses and sits in a fold in the Cotswold Hills, straddling the River Cam in an area of outstanding natural beauty, the surrounding countryside is breathtaking.
The town has changed little over the years and is still the focus for much of the local rural community. There are a wide variety of restaurants and pubs and an excellent range of shops selling local produce, gifts and antiques. The town is associated with the Arts and Crafts movement and offers a wide range of attractions for visitors, including medieval architecture, historic gardens and monuments, regular markets and unique shops. There are also numerous beautiful, quaint little villages waiting to be explored within a short drive.
Cultural events are held throughout the year, such as the Chipping Campden Music Festival, the Open Gardens weekend and the Robert Dover's Olimpick Games, described as “the first stirrings of Britain's Olympic beginnings”. Stratford on Avon and Blenheim Palace, the birthplaces of Shakespeare and Churchill, are cultural gems situated nearby, as are the dreaming spires of Oxford. Cheltenham and the famous racing festival lie 15 miles away.

"Perfect in Every Way"
From my first contact to the last goodbye, everything was handled so thoughtfully and quickly. The one minor problem concerning the TV was personally handled with a quick pop-in by Sarah to flick an … More
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review for our cottage, we really appreciate it. It was lovely to meet you. I have chatted to a few people who met you....you made your mark in Chipping Campden!
We hope to hear from you again in the not too distant future.
Thanks again for your comments and for being perfect guests!

"Lovely cottage in a lovely village"
Very quaint cottage. Perfect location in Chipping Campden. A good base for exploring the surrounding Cotswolds.… More
Thanks for your review.
We're pleased you had a good time and liked the cottage.

the cottage is very cosy. the owners have fitted it out very well.
please be aware if you are staying with a dog that the garden area is not enclosed for honeypot .there are three properties in a row all share the same frontage.though a small gate closes them off from the snicket.
also next door is the restaurant with quite a noisy and smelly extractor fan backing on to the garden don't know what sitting out in the summer would be like though I guess like us you will be out and about.
obviously the owners cannot do anything about the above points.
we had no problems parking outside on the main road.
Thank you for your review.
We inform all guests before they book that the garden is not enclosed and if a secure garden is required, we recommend another of our cottages which allows dogs.
The cottage is at the back of Camminetto's Italian restaurant. As you would expect, there is an extractor fan but we have never ever heard it in 8 years! We have checked with our neighbours on both sides and they have also said that they have never heard any fan noise. We have only ever received positive feedback regarding the smells produced by the restaurant because there are only ever pleasant smells. Many guests book a table at Camminetto, based on the wonderful aromas which are produced!

We specially chose Honeypot because it is so different to anything in Australia, its wonderful age was a drawcard.The cottage was homely and comfortable and we stayed for six days - we felt right at … More
Thanks for your review. We're pleased The Honeypot is different in a good way! There is a clothes horse / airer in the under stairs cupboard. Campden has 2 delicatessens, a butcher,a french bakery, 2 newspaper shops and lots of independent retailers. We're pleased you loved Campden & The Honeypot and hope to see you again in the future.

"As pictured on the website."
Perfectly located just steps off the High Street of what must be one of the prettiest villages in the Cotswolds. The Honeypot has a welcoming feel and whilst small, has everything you need for a comf… More
Thank you for your feedback. The cottage is small and we try and make this apparent by the way we describe the cottage (as well as indicating on the front of our site it's a sleeps 3/4). We have had 4 adults use the cottage on many occasions and we do point out to people that the cottage is small. 4 people (whether adults or children) would struggle to sit around the small antique table.
The stairs carpet is now 6 years old and does need replacing soon. We replaced the windows 12 months ago and so the stairs carpet has had to wait for now. It is the vertical part of the carpet (not the part you tread on) that is starting to look worn on 1 or 2 steps. We renew linen and towels every 18 months or so and repaint the cottage regularly too. We feel this cottage is well above average but we also accept that everyone's expectations are different.

"Beautiful and secluded."
The property was located just off the main road in Chipping Campden so it was very quiet. The property was immaculate and clean. It was evident that' a lot of love had gone into making everything… More

As we are Mr.& Mrs.Fussy, and were on our honeymoon, we expected perfection. We were not disappointed! The honeypot exceeded our expectations in every way. From the convenience of its location, just… More
Thank you for your feedback. It was lovely to meet you both & to know there are other people who have an OCD with cleanliness like we do! We're so pleased you chose The Honeypot for your mini-moon and hope to see you when you return!

"A dander down the snicket"
We're in our 20s so a lot of people took the mick out of us when we said we were planning a holiday in the Cotswolds but seriously, it's pure cuteness.Of course it was not at its sunniest wh… More
