Rose and Crown House
House | 5 bedrooms | sleeps 10
Rose and Crown House has been furnished in keeping with its history, from the set of graduating pewter jugs, old photos and armorial bearings to the stags' heads mounted on the walls of the Garden Room. The old wooden frame and beams of the house are exposed as are the old oak flooring and doors. Many of the windows are leaded with stone mullions and entrance to the property is via the "horse passage" through which animals were led to the stables!
The opportunities to dine in style at the refectory table in the oak panelled dining room or relax in front of a blazing fire in the large inglenook fireplace in the sitting room are not to be missed. Outside the sunny and peaceful walled garden with lawn and herbaceous borders belies its location close to the High Street in Chipping Campden. It is only a couple of minutes walk to small shops and a variety of restaurants, tea rooms and pubs.
