SITUATION

Chipping Campden is perhaps among the most beautiful and unspoilt of all the Cotswold market towns and the High Street was described by Nikolaus Pesvner as "the best piece of townscape in Gloucestershire, arguably one of the best in England". Much of the prosperity and wealth associated with the town came from the wool trade which is highlighted by the great perpendicular church of St James' dating from the thirteenth century and subsequently transformed in the fifteenth century into a complete unity. The nearby Court Barn is now a museum celebrating the rich Arts & Crafts tradition of the area. Chipping Campden is situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and lies within comfortable driving distance of the main centres of Cheltenham, Worcester and the important town of Stratford-upon-Avon. There are fast train services to London Paddington from nearby Moreton-in-Marsh station. Chipping Campden itself offers a very good range of shops and other services catering for most day-to-day needs. There is a highly rated secondary school in Chipping Campden. There is a doctor's surgery and library. The world famous Dover's Games, or Robert Dover's Cotswold Olimpicks, have been held annually on the outskirts of the town since 1612 and are believed to be the roots of the modern Olympic Movement. For those interested in country pursuits the general area provides excellent riding and walking within countryside designated as a Special Landscape Area. There are excellent sporting opportunities in the region, including golf at nearby Broadway with further courses at Naunton Downs, Stratford-upon-Avon and Cheltenham. National Hunt Racing at Cheltenham, Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwick and Worcester and Polo at Cirencester. Other sporting venues include Premiership rugby at Worcester and Gloucester, County Cricket at Worcester and a first class cricket festival at Cheltenham is held annually in July. Stratford-upon-Avon is home to the world renowned Royal Shakespeare Company and the recently refurbished Memorial Theatre. There are many historic houses and gardens in the immediate locality including the internationally famous Hidcote Gardens, in the ownership of the National Trust, and the highly acclaimed Kiftsgate Court Gardens.

OUTSIDE

Electrically operated gates open to the long tarmacadam driveway which leads to the garaging and parking area and around the side of the property to the stable and menage. The gardens surround the property and gently roll away from the house. They are principally laid to lawn with flower and shrub borders. Paved terraces and seating areas around the garden are well placed to catch the afternoon and evening sun and enjoy the spectacular views. A rose arbour leads to a circular pond and a stylish Summer House which has power connected and is an ideal place from which to enjoy the views and sunsets. Another rose arbour leads off a side terrace to the hard surfaced and fenced tennis court. There are further areas of naturalised garden and paddocks with post and rail fencing. There is a stable block with 7 loose boxes, yard and tack room. Machinery and hay stores. Tennis court. Garaging and ample parking.
