Chipping Campden

About the Area

Chipping Campden, a beautiful Market Town, described by the historian G.M. Trevelyan as having ‘the most beautiful village street now left on our Island’

Chipping Campden is a 7 mile scenic drive from Broadway. This delightful Market Town sits atop of the Cotswold Hills but ‘tucked away’ in a valley, surrounded by rolling hills which offer the most stunning views. It is a sanctuary for tourists, walkers, cyclists and horse riders.

The area is surrounded by the picturesque villages of Broad Campden, Blockley (with its mill stream, and where the famous ‘Father Brown’ tv series is filmed), Paxford, Draycott, Aston Magna, Charingworth, Ebrington, the Hidcotes, and in the lea of the rolling hills, the lovely village of Ilmington. And closer to the Vale of Evesham, Aston Subedge, Saintbury and Mickleton.

Chipping Campden’s famous High Street dates from the 14th century and in the Middle Ages enjoyed the patronage of wealthy wool merchants. The High Street is lined with grade 1 and grade 2 terraced houses, antique and independent shops, all built in local Cotswold stone. Halfway along the High Street is the Market Hall, over 400 years old, and at the end of the High Street towers St. James’ Church, one of the finest ‘wool’ churches in England.

Blockley Village

The staff at HJB rate Blockley village very highly because this Cotswold jewel is tucked away between rolling hills and is relatively unscathed from the usual tourist hotspots and has escaped new large developments. Many of our customers are avid walkers and the countryside surrounding Blockley is unrivalled with walks to Broad Campden, Chipping Campden, Batsford, Moreton in Marsh and Broadway.

In the 18th and 19th century the village was famous for producing silk, using water from the local brook which weaves along the edge of the village. The villages recent claim to fame is its location for the filming of the popular TV series Father Brown.

The staff from HJB often frequent the new Communal shop that has opened in the village either for a coffee, or to enjoy an excellent meal in their restaurant. If that’s not enough they visit the Crown Inn and Hotel or the Great Western Arms.

From a property perspective the village is dominated by the church of St. Peter and St. Paul. From the church the  narrow High Street weaves through terraced houses and cottages built mainly in Cotswold stone. Many HJB customers live in the High Street. The local school is Blockley CE Primary School. The village enjoys a Sports and Social Club, a Bowls Club and a children’s play park.

Mickleton Village

Mickleton is a favourite haunt for Hayman-Joyce Broadway staff not least because it has two pubs, The Kings Arms and Restaurant, and the Butchers Arms with its ‘infamous, skittle alley. There is also a fine hotel the Three Ways Hotel with its renowned ‘Pudding Club’, where you get to sample the puddings of old – jam roly poly, spotted dick and bakewell tart, of course all with hot custard, and so many more old favourites.

Mickleton is located on the Heart of England Way just 8 miles south of Stratford upon Avon and 6 miles from Broadway. Chipping Campden is just 5 miles away. The village is a great base to explore the nearby famous National Trust Gardens of Hidcote and Kiftsgate Court gardens. The village is a great base for walkers and cyclists. The nearby Meon Hill has a history of witchcraft and murder, and inspired Tolkeins ‘Weathertop’ from his Lord of the Rings.

The village based on the edge of the Vale of Evesham is famous for market gardening. Architecturally it is a mix of Cotswold stone and brick houses, particularly fine properties around St. Lawrence’s church. It still has an independent butcher and a mini market.
