As you know, we recently rented Little Orchard in Chipping Campden. I just want to tell you that we had one major problem with the rental - instead of renting the cottage for one week we should have arranged to rent it FOR THE WHOLE SUMMER!
We loved the cottage, we loved Chipping Campden and we loved our stay. We would recommend the cottage to anyone who wants a true English country experience. The recent refurbishment was done to exacting standards and the appointments were all TOP NOTCH! We were sure that at any moment there would be a knock on the door and when we opened it there would stand Miss Marple.

Thank you for a wonderful stay. The cottage is a credit to you. Chipping Campden by far the nicest village and Little Orchard best by far. Excellent, homely and spotlessly clean cottage. All anybody could ever want. We love the Cotswolds and will definitely be returning (hopefully to this cottage). People with children be sure to visit Cotswold Farm Park, Warwick Castle and the Cotswold Wildlife Park. Recommended places to eat Horse and Groom, Bourton on the Hill, Feathered Nest, Westcote, Fox Inn, Oddington and The Eight Bells, Chipping Campden. Enjoy your stay as much as we enjoyed ours. Relax and chill.

Arriving at Little Orchard Cottage was a dream come true. What a story book perfect village and cottage and it felt so warm and welcoming. Nothing like Springtime in the Cotswolds. We have fallen in love with the area and the cottage and will definitely be back. Cottage was a real credit to Bev, the owners and Campden Cottages - will highly recommend. Loved visiting Sudely Castle, going for walks around the village, the Spring bulbs and the baby lambs around the corner! Thanks for a dream stay
