First rate, luxury B&B in a delightful Cotswolds village. If you want to spoil yourselves, book Seymour House!
We took 3 rooms for a 2 night weekend stay to celebrate my Mother's 70th birthday, and our party included two people needing to 'rest up' due to pregnancy and a recent op, respectively.
Sarah Taylor was very easy to talk to in advance about our needs, and proved to be such a welcoming host when we duly arrived.
The house is stunning. I like the fact that it is also very distinctly the family home, but equally the family have their own space, and there is a separate, very comfortable sitting room / breakfast room for guests. The Taylor family were so friendly and welcoming.
All rooms are well appointed. Plenty of space, comfortable beds, lovely bathrooms, dressing gowns, fresh milk for tea, bath bombs, hairdryer, hot water bottle and a nice touch - the DAB Roberts Radio. It's seriously the type of place you just chill out with some Classic FM on. I also like the fact that the rooms are in different parts of the house, so you don't feel as guests (especially staying as a party) that you are on top of each other.
The weekend we chose happened to coincide with a deluge of snow and mightily cold weather. Chipping Campden is great to explore, but on the Saturday, by 1pm we simply needed to hunker down, the weather was so bad. Sarah made us feel very much at home in front of a roaring fire in the front room (dedicated for guests), and we relaxed with tea, the newspapers (another nice touch that they are available to guests) and we simply put a log on the fire every now and then!
There is an honesty bar in the front room plus complimentary sherry, and a full games cupboard.
Breakfast is very relaxed. Great selection of fruit, yoghurt and homemade granola, followed by any option you like on the cooked breakfast front. And really well done.
In the evenings we ate at the Eight Bells and then Michael's, both very good.
In a word, outstanding.
