Rose and Crown House was built in the 17 Century, originally as a private dwelling and then later used as a public house, before reverting in 1918 once again to a private house. It probably remains as near to a living history that you could experience. Situated in the centre of Chipping Campden, it is a haven of peace where you can forget the outside world and step back in time. For a fuller description of the history of Rose and Crown House please click here. Rose and Crown House has been furnished in keeping with its history, from the set of graduating pewter jugs, old photos on the walls, armorial bearings to the stags heads mounted on the walls in the Garden Room. The old wooden frame and beams are exposed (some very low upstairs!) and old oak flooring and doors. Leaded windows, many with stone mullions.
