“Perfect Cotswold Cottage”
Reviewed 27 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

person found this review helpful

What a wonderful experience. We are a family from Australia and the cottage was even better in real life. The hosts were able to organise a food hamper for us and a beautiful cake on arrival. The village and surrounds are beautiful and the cottage is clean, spacious and well equipped. Would totally recommend this as a great find in the country.

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review!

We're so pleased you enjoyed your stay and that you loved Silk Mill Cottage.

The hamper was easy to arrange (locally sourced produce including home made Campden jam and locally laid eggs!).

“Great cottage in the heart of Chipping Campden”
Reviewed 31 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

A very well renovated cottage very close to the heart of Chipping Campden. The cottage comes with two parking spaces, absolutely invaluable in Chipping. The cottage is extremely cosy and comfortable and comes with everything you need for a great stay. Will definitely go back for our next visit to the Cotswolds.

“Perfectly situated and appointed”
Reviewed 14 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Silk Mill Cottage felt like home the moment we walked in and I can quite honestly say it was the best holiday rental I've ever stayed in, with everything you need in a beautifully decorated cottage. It truly felt like we were staying in someone's home rather than a rental. With a good sized open-plan space on the ground floor and a very pretty small garden out the front (which is visible through the kitchen windows), there was more than enough room for the 4 of us to rumble around without getting in each others way. (We didn't use the small area outside of the back of the cottage). The kitchen was fitted out exceptionally well, and has a separate washer and drier, as well as a small bit of hanging space which was enough for one load of washing for the 4 of us in July temperatures.
Upstairs the bedrooms are small but lovely, and if I had one thing I'd like to change it would be the bed in the master - it was too small for the two of us and we're not big people - but there's no room there for a bigger bed. So I think if we were to stay here again we'd see if the twin beds can be zipped together in the centre bedroom and put one of the kids in the master and the other in the small end room.
The bathrooms were lovely, well appointed, with rather amusing mirrors that have sensor lights behind the glass. The smallest bedroom is really only big enough for a child under 12, or a spot to pop the cot (there was a travel cot in the corner of the room). Our 8 year old loved it and said it felt like sleeping in the rafters. We all slept very well.
The cottage is a quick walk into town (whether you go through the old mill or around it) where there are a great range of pubs, cafes and restaurants. There are only a couple of small convenience size supermarkets in the town (which is fine for the essentials), but if you're around during the day there is a good grocer and deli store. We didn't see the butcher open while we were there so we're not sure if it's still going. There are a couple of local farm shops near the village, but sorry we seemed to keep missing their opening times and didn't go in.
The great thing about Chipping Campden is that it isn't as touristy and full of tourists as Broadway, Stow-on-the-wold or Bourton on the water, but there are still plenty of things there to see and do, as well as plenty to see nearby.
The house is tucked away nicely behind the old mill and beside a nursing home. It is very very quiet. I think the only thing that woke us one morning was a car alarm somewhere far far in the distance.
Highly recommended as a lovely spot to really relax and enjoy the beautiful Cotswolds. But just a note that this isn't a property for anyone who is mobility impaired or has difficulty on gravel, going up stairs or showering in a small space.

“A Perfect Cottage in an Ideal Location”
Reviewed 7 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

people found this review helpful

We selected Silk Mill Cottage based on the fine reviews on TripAdvisor. We are 60-something veteran travelers typically selecting 4+ star accommodations. We were not disappointed! The cottage is extremely charming, both inside and out. It is fully and tastefully equipped, spotlessly cleaned and very well maintained. The bedrooms are not large, but certainly adequate. The bathrooms are very modern and perfectly functional. And the agents, Andy & Sarah Smith, are very pleasant to deal with.

In our view, Chipping Campden is THE best base in the Cotswalds. The town itself is small and not too crowded, but it has all the shops you need close at hand and many fine restaurants. The Cottage is literally steps away from all these amenities. Plus the neighbors, local residents, are delightful. We HIGHLY recommended Silk Mill Cottage as the perfect spot for a family or two couples when visiting the beautiful Cotswalds.

We hope to hear from you again in the future. Please contact us directly as Holiday Lettings will no longer allow us to advertise just a selection of cottages...insisting we advertise all cottages which is not an option unfortunately. Hopefully TA will continue to show all reviews.
