Hotel review: Cotswold House Hotel

The Cotswold House Hotel in the charming town of Chipping Campden was one of my July highlights. I recently stayed at this elegant establishment with a fellow luxury-loving friend and we were incredibly impressed by the whole rejuvenating experience.

The stately entrance of Cotswold House Hotel was inviting and elegant – as was the welcoming reception area. Our abode for the weekend, a two-story suite, was a testament to the hotel’s commitment to tasteful elegance. Immaculately presented and thoughtfully designed, the suite offered us the perfect fusion of modernity and traditional Cotswold charm.

The pièce de résistance was undoubtedly the private garden, home to an inviting hot tub, where we immersed ourselves in soothing warmth under a picturesque blue sky. This secluded outdoor haven provided an intimate space for conversation and contemplation, a treasured luxury rarely found in today’s bustling world.

My kind of private garden

The allure of Cotswold House Hotel extends beyond its accommodation. The on-site spa, brimming with tranquility, offered an oasis of calm and rejuvenation. Our joint experience included a massage and a facial, expertly conducted by knowledgeable therapists. They used products derived from natural ingredients, lending an eco-friendly, nurturing touch to our pampering sessions. The treatments left us feeling deeply relaxed and invigorated – our skin glowing with the benefits of organic care.

No stay at the Cotswold House would be complete without a visit to the hotel’s acclaimed restaurant. Here, the culinary team led us on a sensory journey that brought together exceptional produce and skillful artistry. We started our gastronomic exploration with a refreshingly tangy burrata and tomato salad followed by a heartwarming swede soup, both meticulously crafted and presented.

The main courses included a flavoursome prawn linguini and an impressively tender roast chicken breast served with a glorious fondant potato. Each mouthful was a joyous celebration of flavour and texture, demonstrating the restaurant’s commitment to fine dining.

For dessert, we shared a delectable strawberry pannacotta, made with freeze-dried strawberries for a unique and pleasing texture. This finale was a delicate symphony of sweetness and fruitiness, a delightful end to our culinary escapade.

The Fig restaurant in all its elegant glory

Our breakfast the next day, served in our private lounge was everything we could have imagined and more. Eggs, sausages, bacon, tomatoes, beans, mushrooms, toast and pastries were merrily devoured as we decided what to do that day around the quaint village of Chipping Campden.

The Cotswold House Hotel went above and beyond to provide a transcendent experience. Each element of our stay, from the enchanting suite to the rejuvenating spa treatments and the exquisite dining experience, was crafted with genuine care and a passion for hospitality. If you are seeking a sanctuary that offers the perfect blend of luxury, tranquility, and gastronomic indulgence, then the Cotswold House Hotel in Chipping Campden is, without a doubt, the place to be.
