Set in the heart of Chipping Campden, the prettiest town in the Cotswolds, and with two acres of landscaped townhouse gardens behind it, Cotswold House Hotel & Spa blends traditional Regency architecture with contemporary design and superb comfort. This fine townhouse has overlooked the Square for more than 200 years, and for the last ten has been one of the most prestigious hotels in the Cotswolds. While at some Spas, you find yourself elbowed out from your peaceful swim by a noisy aqua aerobics class, or jolted out of some quiet contemplation by children in armbands, at Cotswold House Spa we believe small (and exclusive) is beautiful. We don't have mud baths, fancy gadgets and false promises - our specialty is peace and quiet, in the idyllic surroundings of our Cotswold garden; hydrotherapy pool, hammam and restorative and reviving treatments given to you by our expert, caring team, and the space to unwind and really let the rest of the world slip away. Which is why we've just won the LateRooms Best Kept Secrets Award 2013 for Best Spa - because the people that know about us, would rather everyone else didn't. Twenty-eight bedrooms include garden cottages and suites, some with private gardens and hot tubs, limestone baths and mood lighting, and all designed to be sumptuously comfortable and indulgent. Deluxe King Rooms and Standard rooms include flat screen TVs, excellent bathroom facilities, and all the touches to make a stay memorable.
All 29 en-suite rooms are of a good size, very individual and equipped with everything you would expect. From the Bang and Olufsen Entertainment system, cordless telephone and complimentary broadband access, to the huge beds with soft throws, Frette linen sheets, unique wool duvets and the thickest cotton towels you can imagine. These rooms really are utterly pampering and indulgent.
Part of the Cotswold House experience is the fine cuisine delivered by an excellent kitchen team, passionate about their work. In the hotel's restaurant, guests and non-residents can enjoy beautifully executed dishes created using the freshest ingredients. Morning coffee, teas and light lunches are served on the terrace in summer, surrounded by colourful borders, and traditional afternoon tea is a must by the roaring log fire in the winter months. Please note the spa is frequently fully booked if the spa is essential to your visit do call in advance to make a booking
This is a beautiful and historical townhouse that dates back to the 17th century.
The lobby is small and very elegantly decorated with a sweeping spiralling staircase leading you up to the rooms.
Having recently undergone a massive refurbishment to provide the finest facilities for its guests, this is without doubt one of the best privately run and managed hotels in the country. With rooms of exceptional quality coupled with exquisite dining, this is a great place to come for a special treat and good old fashioned pampering, not to mention the fact that the immense beauty of the Cotswolds is right on the doorstep.
