Location

Chipping Campden is a small and enduringly beautiful market town. It is notable for its elegant terraced High Street, dating from the 14th century to the 17th century - testament to the extraordinary wool wealth generated by the area. The town enjoys a central location in the North Cotswolds (with nearby surrounding counties of Oxfordshire, Worcestershire and Warwickshire), and has a diverse collection of shops, galleries and restaurants, as well as newsagents, hairdressers and a host of other local businesses. The magnificent St James’ Church can be found at the north end of the town, whilst the secondary school was recently rated as an Outstanding school in the latest Ofsted report. The closest train station can be found at either Moreton in Marsh or Honeyboune, with both providing main line access to Oxford and London Paddington.
