Chipping Campden is a quaint Cotswold market town of honey-coloured stone buildings. Lonely Planet calls it "an absolute gem in an area full of pretty towns". The Kings Hotel, an 18th-century townhouse on the picturesque high street, has four AA Gold Stars, which are awarded to guest accommodation offering excellent levels of quality, hospitality and service. It also has two AA Rosettes and a Breakfast Award.
The hotel has 14 bedrooms in the main house and five cottage rooms in the garden, each decorated with a mixture of antique and modern furnishings. The restaurant has an open stone fireplace, wooden floors and an oak-beamed ceiling. There's also a bar serving sandwiches, small plates and classic puddings. Guests can relax beside the roaring log fire or, weather permitting, eat outdoors on the terrace or in the landscaped gardens.
A few minutes' walk from the hotel, is the Court Barn Museum, which showcases the work of designers and craftspeople since the start of the 20th century. National Trust property Hidcote Manor Garden and Broadway Tower are both within 10 minutes' drive. Beneath Broadway Tower is a Cold War-era bunker, a facility built to monitor and study the effects of nuclear explosions (open on weekends and bank holiday Mondays only). Chastleton House -- as seen in the BBC's "Wolf Hall"-- is around 25 minutes' drive away.
Other local Cotswolds towns and villages include Burford, with its bustling high street of antique shops, galleries and tea rooms, and Stow-on-the-Wold. Stratford-upon-Avon and Cheltenham are both within a 45-minute drive of the hotel.
