Broad Campden is a quiet, unspoilt Cotswold village with a pub serving real ale and good, reasonably priced, meals. One of the most exquisite villages in the Cotswolds with many of the old houses and cottages having thatched roofs. St Michael and All Angels is the small parish church with a circular tower, an unusual sight in this part of England. The 17th century Quaker Friends Meeting House is the oldest in the country still in use.
Chipping Campden is just 1.5km by road or across the fields. This small town was built largely by medieval merchants from wealth gained from the wool trade. When arriving from the A44 there is an outstanding view and, as the town is approached, many thatched cottages. One of the most charming and unspoilt of the Cotswold towns, it is often described as having the most perfect High Street in England, with it’s beautiful honey coloured stone buildings dating from the 14th to the 17th centuries. The Market Hall (now in the care of the National Trust) is an imposing open sided stone arched building, erected in 1627 to provide shelter for the local produce market.
Visitors are welcome in the Old Silk Mill and the workshop of Harts (Gold and Silversmiths) who are descendants of C R Ashbee’s Guild.
There is a wide range of interesting small shops and a large variety of good restaurants, hotels and pubs offering both traditional English and international cuisine.
For those keen on walking there are many public footpaths including the Cotswold Way which starts in Chipping Campden and goes to Bath.
