Chipping Campden

Postcode: GL55 6HL
Sleeps: 4
From: £51
A delightfully secluded and tastefully appointed two bedroom cottage close to the heart of Chipping Campden.

Kettle Cottage is in the centre of Chipping Campden, but tucked away so you would never know it was there. It can be found in the garden of The Kettle House, from which it takes its name. The huge kettle hanging on the front of Kettle House, suspended on high, is a landmark and dates from the time when James "Tinker" Haines was the householder. He repaired kettles and pans and the huge kettle was a sign of his trade.

Kettle Cottage has been refurbished to provide a very comfortable holiday home with full gas central heating.

Kettle Cottage is reached via a cobbled side passage, containing an old well and a pump in working order, which leads to the garden and the cottage. It is believed that the cottage was built in the Victorian era.

Kettle House has also been a public house where beer was brewed on the premises at the back in a barn. At the front of Kettle House is the curved green of Leysbourne, said to date from the times when there was a blacksmith working at the property. Horses would be shod, then with their carts led round to turn back onto the street into Campden, so forming the curve.

There is public parking on the curve and in the street with no restrictions. Comfortable two seater sofa and two armchairs. The unusual Victorian Stove style electric fire is great focal point for the room. Television with Freeview. DVD player To one side of the room is the DINING AREA with circular table and chairs to seat 4 Bijou

The owner of Kettle Cottage enjoys chatting to guests and is pleased for you to share her garden. The decking area, surrounded by Wisteria and Clematis, is solely for guest's use. Sitting at the circular, bistro style table and enjoying breakfast in the morning makes for a lovely start to the day. Or after a long day sight seeing, coming home to a glass of wine and simply relaxing whilst enjoying the view is also quaint.

Overlooking the garden is the lovely honey coloured church tower of St James' church, which is featured with four stars in 'England's Thousand Best Churches' by Simon Jenkins.
