Chipping House provides excellent accommodation for a wide range of ages from babies to great grand parents. Spacious but cosy it provides separate living room and playroom along with outside play/sun room. Hot tub a big bonus for all guests.
The location is very central to the small friendly town of independent shops, 2 minutes from swimming pool and cinema with a constantly changing programme of entertainment. Particularly successful for our party were trips to Cattle Country, Berkley Castle (check open days), and Newark Park - a unique NT property.
A great home for a family get-together with lots of space for everyone. We had one child quietly reading in one room, with others playing next door and adults having a chat in another room - the recipe for a great holiday! It was good to be able to stroll to the pool, playground or cinema (all were put to good use during our week). But the best thing was that all of us, young and old, had a relaxing and thoroughly enjoyable week.
Chipping house is very practical, especially for large families and is in a great location to explore the Cotswolds, South Wales and south west England. The owner was extremely helpful pre-stay and the house is well equipped. We had a fabulous week there and highly recommend it.
The house was so comfortable, spacious and airy. The kitchen was so well equipped with so much cutlery and crockery. We felt so relaxed in the property. Its situation was excellent and we felt we could all move happily to Wotton-under-Edge! Thank you for helping our family enjoy such a wonderful celebration.
The House was easy to find and perfectly located so that once cars were parked on arrival, everything was so accessible that cars were not used throughout our stay; walks from the House are extensive. The House itself is absolutely beautiful; warm and cosy, and the atmosphere so relaxing. The beds were comfortable and the bedding good quality, the towels were soft and the hot water plentiful, the bathrooms were warm. The House was so well maintained. The hot tub was an added bonus, with mood lighting and twinkling lights as darkness falls. We were a group of 9 friends and each of us agreed we would return. It was perfect in every way.
The owner was so friendly and helpful prior to our arrival.
The location of the house is perfect, within walking distance of all town amenities, lovely places to eat, and surrounded by beautiful walks.
Parking for several cars within the grounds.
The house wrapped us in warmth and relaxation, the atmosphere is welcoming and homely, and there are so many features that made our stay so special. Quality and attention to detail in such an historic family home.
The hot tub with twinkling lights as darkness fell was gorgeous!
Comfortable beds, fluffy towels, endless hot water, logs for the wood burners, so much China, cutlery and cooking utensils.
A lovely house - felt like a home rather than a rental cottage. Very well equipped kitchen - particularly as we usually cater for ourselves.
The house was comfortable, spotlessly clean with ample information on both the house and places to visit. It would be hard to think of a better location, we could just to walk into the town centre for a meal and it was unexpectedly quiet for such a central situation.
It was very suitable for 3 generations to mix mingle. There were plenty of comfy seats and room for the children to play outside and in.
The accommodation exceeded our expectations. My family had an amazing time, the house was so amazing. I would recommend this place to anyone, we didn't want to leave! Many thanks for a fab week!
Walking through the front door of Chipping House is like walking into an old friend's house. It is a wonderful house. The kitchen offers a great central place for everyone to catch up. The other rooms are comfortable and cosy. It is perfectly located to meander into Wotton under edge or as a springboard to Stroud or other beautiful places in the Cotswolds.
I also need to recommend the owner, Cathrine. Nothing has been too much trouble. What a great combo.: a lovely house and a lovely owner! We'll be back!
This house covered all bases for an amazing birthday weekend away from London! Firstly it's really easy to find - follow the instructions on the website and you really can't miss it. Secondly upon arrival, the set up as to how to get in and settled is clear as day too.
And then - the fun was had! The owners of the house - whilst they have put rules in place - are wonderful and didn't even mind that we broke a glass (oops). The wifi did mean that for some of us workaholics we could get connected but mostly we just enjoyed the surroundings - went for a lovely walk up the hill on Saturday morning, and popped to the local pub The Royal Oak for lunch on sunday (again five stars - but head to their page!)
Back at the house, once our food delivery came, we made the most of the kitchen, cooking up a storm (with a couple of glasses of wine of course) and playing some music. The house is very old and the walls thick, so we were able to turn the volume up comfortably without upsetting anyone - just make sure the windows are closed!
And finally - the best part of the house - has to be the hot tub. What a treat!! We were in and out like yoyos!
Basically, if you want a truly brilliant base in the Cotswolds, I couldn't recommend Chipping House enough.
Very comfortable, immaculately clean and very detailed useful information on locality and amenities given by the owner. Will certainly go again.
chipping house had everything we could have asked for , from soft comfy beds and fluffy white towels to a well stocked playroom and wellingtons for the children, a very fine large house, kitchen fully equipped, large dining room, study, log burners and plenty of space for our large family to mingle together or find a quiet corner for a bit of privacy, even a hot tub in the garden, set in a charming village with tearooms, pubs and an excellent chip shop,
the house very well kept and immaculately clean, will certainly go back again
A comfortable, warming house that, as a large family, we can all get together and enjoy our time.
Very scenic walking country with or without driving from the house. Comfortable accommodation in a very interesting house with sufficient parking, full facilities and a private garden. Very quiet location despite being in town.
From the moment we booked to the moment we left the service provided by Catherine the owner was fantastic. There is a website providing you lots of information about the house but upon enquiring Catherine called to talk through any questions we had and even called a week before our holiday to see if we needed anything - exceptional service.
As for the house it's lovely for large groups with 2 sitting rooms, large kitchen dining room, nice garden and even a conservatory - so enough space for you to enjoy together or apart. This has to be one of the most well-equipped houses we've stayed in with everything you need for cooking, eating, and so many games and books to keep you entertained. The cleanliness of the house was great too.
One of the nicest additional touches was the amount of local information provided - it's like a mini tourist information place with recommendations on things to do provided in nice folders along with useful information like how far away, prices etc - we used to have a flick through each day and decide what to do the next day!
The house is in the centre of Wotton-under-Edge which has lovely little tearooms, independent shops, a swimming pool, cinema and a Tesco metro to get what you need so is an ideal location - plus not far to get to places you may want to visit.
I can't say enough positive things about Chipping House - for large groups this place is perfect so book it and enjoy!
Chipping House more than met our expectations.
We are a three generation family group, 8 adults and 6 children, celebrating a significant birthday together and the accommodation suited us perfectly. Everything, from the generous space inside and out, the standard of furnishings, kitchen equipment, cleanliness etc was of a very high standard and we would not fault a single thing!
Catherine phoned and emailed us before our weekend to check our requirements and made lots of helpful suggestions of things to see and do - we just wish we had booked a week.
We were blessed with good weather and enjoyed exploring the town, walking on the Cotswolds and swimming in the local pool.
We were a family group of eleven encompassing three generations. The accommodation at Chipping House, the furnishings and the equipment were all first class. The gregarious and those seeking a bit of peace and quiet were both catered for. Wotton under Edge is an interesting town with very good amenities : a good selection of pubs and eateries and the local Tesco and Co-op are very well stocked - in fact, as much variety and choice as the bigger supermarkets in nearby Dursley. Easy access by road to Bath, Bristol and Gloucester. If you are a N.T. member (or even if not) there are a number of interesting properties in the area. In particular we found Snowshill Manor really fascinating. For the golfer I can recommend Cotswold Edge G.C : a lovely course with great views and reasonable green fees. We have stayed at Chipping House three times and I am sure we will be going back at some time in the future and look forward to luxuriating in the hot tub ( which was not insitu at the time of our stay).
The place was very welcoming. Felt like a home. Wonderful space in the property and a great garden for little ones to play in. We had a wonderful stay.
Very well stocked house in a great location. Enjoyed several walks right from the door step, no need to drive. Enjoyed visits to Gloucester, Bath, Tetbury and a day at Chepstow races.
Chipping House was in a lovely part of the country, and we all had a great time there. I would recommend this property.
We are a large group of old school friends and partners. Great E mail from the owner before our trip with a wealth of useful info and tips. Perfect location in the town for access to the pubs and restaurants. House faultless with everything as described. Highly recommended.
Very comfortable accommodation with plenty of space for a family group. All equipment worked well, and there was adequate provision of essentials. The central situation within easy walking distance of shops, cafes, pubs etc was ideal. Altogether a thoroughly enjoyable week in a very attractive area, and we can certainly recommend the accommodation which fully justifies its four-star rating.
Great location within the town, house is really well appointed and great for sharing with a large group. Lots of space to lose yourself with a book and a glass of wine or just chat with friends. Lovely holiday, would definately visit again - Wotton is an unspoilt Cotswold town with lovely amenities and great local walking on the Cotswold Way.
Also great communications from the owners at all times.
Our family, including daughters, spouses and children from the USA and Australia, had a wonderful stay in Chipping House the week leading up to another daughter's wedding at Woodchester Mansion on 31 August.
The weather was perfect and Chipping House was everything we could have hoped for, and more. Our family members ranged from 8 to 87 and the house worked so very well for everyone to enjoy. It is spacious, comfortable, fun and welcoming, and was more than adequately equipped, with tasteful beds and bedding, and a fabulous array of cooking pots, crockery and cutlery. We had memorable family suppers around the wonderful dining room table. The garden was also enjoyed by all, from the children who enjoyed playing games to others who enjoyed identifying the many plants and flowers in the plentiful sunshine as the garden faces west.
Bedroom 1 is luxurious and elegant and was just right for the bride to get ready in for her wedding.
All in all an unforgettable experience.
Spacious property fully equipped with everything you could want, well located for trips out; a superb holiday home!
I stayed from 28th June to 5th July with a group of 10 friends as we were walking parts of the Cotswolds Way. Chipping House was just excellent for all our party and there were many little corners for a relaxing time. It was especially good as some of us could watch Wimbledon in the Library in the evening whilst others enjoyed a good conversation and evening drink in the lounge. The Summer House was particularly popular with the Walkers enjoying afternoon tea and even a wee sleep after our daily long walk. The owner was particulary helpful in giving advise on attractions in the area which we found very useful.
Wonderful family home, comfortable, spacious, child friendly, large garden with furniture to lounge in. Spacious kitchen and dining room very well equiped. Lots of space to read, play, relax etc. 14 family members arrived from Canada and fell in love with Chipping House and Wotton. Pub 2 mins away, outdoor swimming pool 2 mins away. Unspoilt Cotswold village, with shops, historic buildings, lovely countryside. Close to Bristol. Charming owners.
There was plenty of space and lots of things for children to play with.
The house was well situated for the shops, public houses, coffee shops etc.
We stayed here for the half-term week commencing 24 May. We were all delighted with the property. The layout of the bedrooms was perfect for our party and the beds were very comfortable.
The kitchen was more than fully equipped and the lounge and library were comfortable and catered for the children very well.
The owners of the cottage were extremely helpful and left nothing to chance. We would love to enjoy another holiday there.
The house was very comfortable and the position in the town was very convenient for all our needs, we felt very welcome and at home.
We stayed here with a large group of friends including two children aged 1 and 5. There was so much space and a fantastic dining table that seats about 18 people. It really was home away from home with everything you needed in the house, lots of dishes in the kitchen, toys for the children etc. There is a great garden and we had a bbq one evening. The house is in a fantastic position in the heart of the village and walking distance to pubs, shops etc. The owners were exceptionally helpful beforehand and gave us so lots of ideas for places to eat and things to do. I strongly recommend.
I stayed at Chipping House for a week with my husband and his family... I was so impressed with the house and location, I felt compelled to add my review here. Our group ranged in age from 19 months to 71 years and everyone loved it and found a corner to suit them. The house itself is incredibly well equipped, you really don't need to bring anything with you, even if you love to cook (I tend to bring a decent chopping knife with me whenever I rent a house!) We cooked a lot and ate in the village a few times - mostly very impressive and incredibly good value. Chipping House has obviously witnessed lots of happy times and immediately feels like home. It is really comfortable, warm and the beds are super comfy! I cannot recommend it highly enough!
This was the best family holiday we have had in recent years. There was everything for the children, indoors and out and this was hugely responsible for the success of the stay. There were also amazing facilities for the older ones. The bedrooms were spacious and the beds very comfortable. It felt like a home, which of course it is.
Chipping House turned out to be the venue for the best family holiday we have had so far. It was perfect for our extended family - 2 grandparents, 3 daughters, 3 sons-in-law and 3 two year old grandchildren. The description on their informative web site was completely accurate and the joining instructions were fine. The facilites were immaculate when we arrived. It had EVERYTHING we needed to make this a wonderful week. The space for the children to play happily and safely were most appreciated - there was so much for them to play with. The adults were catered for in the well stocked kitchen equipment and wi-fi. The beds were very comfortable and and the rooms spacious. The garden was safe and well-maintained. Wotton-under-Edge is a fascinating place as well, with so many independent shops as well as a Co-op (hooray) and a Tesco Express (boo hiss) I cannot recommend this property highly enough. We shall certainly be returning.
The property was beautiful but not intimidating - we all agreed that we felt at home straight away. It didn't feel like a rented property and there were some lovely personal touches, Christmas decorations, plenty of logs for the woodburners, bottles of ketchup, maps etc! We loved the little town, everyone was particularly friendly and helpful and the many walks from the door across the decidedly waterlogged fields were really enjoyable. A perfect holiday!
The house was warm and extremely comfortable. It's a great location for exploring the Cotswolds. We left with some very happy memories from our early Christmas celebration.
Very comfortable accomodation, well equipped kitchen, plenty of room for large family meals, a well stocked library with plenty of puzzles and games, a large screen tv for those that need one and a more relaxing tv free room for those that don't. Good sized private garden for badminton etc. Local shops, swimming pool and cinema all within a few hundred yards. Cinema was great.
Perfect for an all ages family get together. Very good location and the house offered simply everything needed no matter the weather. We must also mention the lovely garden.
Such a lovely, homely home. Felt very comfortable and the owners were extremely helpful in every aspect. We would highly recommend this property.
There was plenty of information regarding the house and surrounding area. Lots of things to do in the house if the weather was bad - puzzles, books, games, a big TV. Not forgetting the lovely wood burning stoves, which kept us all cosy, what a treat! Chipping House has the feel of a family home, really welcoming and good parking too. Really lovely home, we had a super weekend.
We enjoyed having two sitting rooms. One with a TV and one without so people had a choice - watching TV or chatting and listening to music. We also liked that the house was in the village so near to places to eat and to buy provisions.
Ideal location for the Cotswold Way. Very well equipped property. Ideal location.
The owners were very welcoming. They had thought of everything. The house was well equiped . There was helpful infomation about the practiacl running of the house and also about its interesting history. My grandchildren loved the play room and we had a great time at Chipping House.
A great space for 3 generations to enjoy time together whilst having 'quiet time' in our own rooms if required.
Perfect for our family celebration. Plenty of toys, games and dressing up clothes for the grandchildren. Good location for the town and sightseeing.
The owner was extremely welcoming and accommodating and had given very useful printed advice for use of services within the house and amenities in the area. The provision of kitchen ware, crockery and glassware was excellent and a nice touch was hairdriers in all the bedrooms. Everywhere was very clean and bright and nicely decorated, but not intimidating! The setting in the heart of Wootton-under-Edge was ideal for exploring the Cotswolds and one highlight for us was the excellent playroom for our 2 grandaughters aged 3 and 5.
We were a party of ten adults and 2 young children. We agreed that we could not fault Chipping House. The location, the accommodation, the provision of kitchenware, glassware etc, were excellent. The children (and adults) made great use of the 'playroom' with all the games and toys they found there. The added touches of hair driers in rooms, clear instructions and directions for use of facilities all made Chipping House an ideal destination for our gathering. The owner was most welcoming and accommodating of the needs of our party. We would not hesitate to recommend it to friends.
Although it is a large house it has a very homely feel, and we particularly loved the 'children's lounge' with the books, jigsaw puzzles and games, which were made very good use of!
The piano in the adult lounge was much enjoyed also, and we had lots of fun singing from the 'songs from the 70s' book!
The Emperor bedroom is beautiful!
Excellent property in a lovely village. Had great meals in the Swan, Star and Royal Oak. Would definitely recommend this property and we will be happy to use Sykes Cottages again.
Stayed at Chipping House for one week in early September. Family joined us for first weekend - which ranged from 2year old to 70 year old. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed staying here. The property is very well maintained, very well equiped and very well placed within the lovely village. Chipping House was immaculate and very homely. We also met the owner who is a lovely lady. We had friends join us for the rest of the week and again they were very impressed. Will definitely been returning to Chipping House and have no hesitation in recommending this property. Skyes Cottages also did a very good job with all the admin.
Pack of tea/coffee biscuits and milk very welcome on arrival. Comfortable and clean throughout and very well enquiped especially the kitchen. Brilliant for children, lots to do in and out of the house, so many lovely touches like a sandpit to keep the little ones happy. Plenty of bathrooms so no queueing. The house was big enough for everyone to find a quiet corner and have their own space. Although comfortable the house was very homely. Quiet location but close to town and shops. Take aways but town lacks restaurants only one Indian and one pub serving food. Travelling throughout the Cotswold is a pleasure and driving was a pleasure, we visited so many amazing places and the brochures and guides supplied by the owners were a great help. We used the wi-fi to great affect to find county highlights. A brilliant base for families and friends.
We Hire the house for a wedding we were attending locally the accomodation was perfect
For Myself my wife & four Daughter & Partners & Children
The house was excellent for a 3-generation holiday - 8 of us. Realizing short of wine 10 mins before dinner was not a problem - quick run to the Co-op! Loved the Hostess trolley and the bell to get everyone down to meals. Thought the family aspect was great - "home from home" and entirely appropriate for a comfortable week away. The cinema 2 mins away was a godsend for a wet summer afternoon, and the garden/bbq wonderful for the dry evenings!
The house was very grand in size but homely. There were welcoming tea, coffee, milk and flowers. The house was central to the town. The facilities were brilliant, everything was thought of for young and old alike. The kitchen was better equipped than mine! Thoroughly recommend Chipping House for large families and 'get togethers'.
10 of us went to Chipping House to celebrate two 50th birthdays. The house was ideal for this purpose - lots of room, masses of crockery, glasses, books, games etc, an excellent village location in a lovely part of the world.
Location is right in town. Lovely countryside just outside the town. Property is spacious, clean and with the right amount of bathrooms for a big group. Lots of crockery etc and the fittings are of a high standard.
A very spacious and comfortable large house, that was well equipped with toys, games etc, but with family photos etc that weren't appropriate to a holiday home. The house immediately adjoins the town car park, but it was helpful to be close to shops etc.
Lots of space for a big party to enjoy the Cotswolds.
This house was perfect for the family gathering that we had. In all, two grandparents, two adult couples, three teenagers and a young lady of 8. This meant the diversity of the property was spot on. The general quality of accommodation was excellent and the owner was very helpful. Being set in the town itself only added to the whole ambience and convenience. It is very difficult to fault much about a large house in a perfect location for our needs. Thank you.
The house was lovely and perfect for our needs, spacious and comfortable, with good-quality furnishings and a friendly welcome from the 'literature', and a helpful response from the owner housekeeper. It was very well equipped for all ages and it really felt like a 'home' for the weekend we were there. We loved the fact that it was so near the town centre so we could just wander round the shops, and there are some really nice short walks. The pre-Christmas weekend was a great success with all members of the family and we're already thinking of coming back next year!
The house was so welcoming and there was everything we needed. The village was brilliant and we had a great time in the pubs and a meal at the local hotel. The surrounding area was beautiful and we had an excellent walk around the Cotswold trail.
Great place to stay - everything was superb!
We flew in from Canada and my son and his family flew in from Japan. He also brought his Japanese in-laws who were anxious to visit the Cotswold so there were seven of us in all. Chipping House was a beautiful surprise - spacious, extremely well-equipped and well maintained. A comprehensive manual was available so we were well able to deal with the various electric/electronic appliances. My grandson made good use of the children's room and the lawn at the rear of the house. On the Sunday several of our English relatives joined us for lunch and we were able to sit sixteen guests around the table (and there were enough Port Meirion dishes!). As our holiday developed we began to appreciate Chipping House's excellent location. We were able to visit many of the beautiful Cotwold villages (use a GPS!), explore Bath, and enjoy a short hike along the Cotswold Way which passes close to Wotton Under Edge. A day trip was also made to Tintern, Chepstow and the Welsh Folk Museum at St. Fagans. When we needed a little help in locating something we went to the tourist office less than seventy metres from Chipping House. They were always very helpful. Of course, we ate many meals at Chipping House but occasionally, after a long trip, we thorougly enjoyed a meal at the Swan. However it was the ambiance of Chipping House that provided us with real comfort and relaxation. Chipping House was a lovely holiday home. The only problem we had was in convincing our Japanese guests that it was safe to sleep on a bed rather than a futon!
This is a lovely home and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It is extremely well equipped. The people in the small town were very friendly and helpful. We only stayed a week ... we would have loved to stay much longer.
We thought Chippping House had a wonderful atmosphere,as soon as we walked in we felt at home, although the house is much grander than our own. We had a fanntastic family gathering of our children and grandchildren from around the world and everyone found something to love about the house. The children enjoyed the wide variety of toys, both inside and in the garden; sandpit, slide, paddling pool, a lovely dolls house and even a 'fairy' dress. Catering was really easy in the excellently equiped kitchen and we all enjoyed the spacious feel to the rooms and the comfortable elegant furnishings. We were a bit unsure of booking somewhere in a town, but actually it was ideal for a gathering such as ours. The owner could not have been more helpful. And then God sent the sunshine - life does not get much better. The children wanted us to buy the house!!
Lovely large house for family gathering. The furnishings were child friendly, which was ideal.
Lovely enclosed garden, unfortunately lots of rain so not used too much!
We thought Chippping House had a wonderful atmosphere. We had a fantastic family gathering of our children and grandchildren from around the world and everyone felt at home as soon as we walked in. We were overwhelmed by the calibre of the toys - something for everyone - sandpit, slide, paddling pool and a lovely dolls house. All the cooks in the family loved the kitchen, much better equipped than most rented ones we have used. We were a bit unsure of booking somewhere in a town, but actually it was ideal for a gathering such as ours. The owner could not have been more helpful. And then God sent the sunshine - life does not get much better. The children wanted us to buy the house!!
Really well appointed. great for our toddler - loved the sand pit, slide and sunny garden. Great having the cinema and swimming pool close by.
