Travel Blogs from Chipping Campden
Today is my last day in the Cotswolds, and the weather is great. I decided to walk along the Cotswold Way, a foot path that traverses the entire area. The whole path is quite long, but it starts here in Chipping Campden and the first stop along the way is Broadway Tower, a few miles out of town.
The hike went through beautiful hilltop …
Well, here's that lovely English weather I’ve heard so much about! Rain, clouds, and plenty of both. With nothing much planned really for the remainder of my stay here aside from a walk along the Cotsold Way to the nearby town of Broadway and fairer weather expected tomorrow, I decided to take today off and relax. I caught up on the write-ups …
This morning after a delicious breakfast from my hosts, I headed straight to Stratford-upon-Avon. Birthplace (and eventual resting place) of William Shakespeare, the town is a draw for many a Shakespeare fan. Until recently I would not have counted myself as such, but I think I may need to look into reading some more of his plays, or at least see …
Farewell, London! The next stop on my British Tour is Chipping Campden, in Gloucestershire. This area of England is known as the Cotswolds, and is known for its rolling hills and is designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty by the British government. The area was well known for wool production, and many of the towns look today as they did …
....... And I did a lot of that!
It is sort of sad not to be driving around the Cotswolds, but today is very cold and it is still raining on and off. I have walked around this lovely little town, visited a museum, and roamed around a 15th century church. Well at least much of it is from that era.
The museum concerns itself with …

Historical Traveler Reviews Badgers Hall Chipping Campden
My girlfriend and I have just returned home after a wonderful two night mid-week break at Badger's Hall.
Fabulous place to stay
My wife and I really enjoyed our 3 night stay at Badgers Hall. The room we had was large and very comfortable. The food was excellent and Karen and Paul were great hosts. Their restaurant recommendations were spot on. We'll certainly be going back to this first class B&B in a marvellous location.
My wife and I stayed for a 2 night break in February and was our first visit to the Cotswolds. In terms of location Badgers Hall couldn't be better. It also has a sort of 'olde worlde' charm about it especially as it is a Tea Room. Our bedroom was very clean and had plenty of character. Nice touch by the hosts in offering an 'honesty bar' in the evening although we didn't use it. Paul & Karen are friendly hosts and more than happy to recommend local places to visit and eat. The breakfast was excellent and we would recommend the full english to anyone- just don't intend eating for a while after! The only other thing we would mention is at the time we stayed the local kids seemed to congregate opposite, on the High Street, and were sometimes pretty noisy. However it did not spoil our enjoyment. Would visit again. recommended.
Loved Badgers Hall
We had a 2 night stay at Badgers Hall (3 couples - 3 rooms).
Karen and Paul were warm, friendly hosts. The cream tea on arrival was the perfect touch, as was the beautiful breakfast each morning.
We all felt the beds were amongst the most comfortable.
Would definitely stay again. Superb.
Great place to stay
We drove from York to the Cotswolds in blinding rain one Sat in August. The drive was exhausting. Upon arrival at Badger's Hall, we were delighted that Karen served us tea and some cake. I felt like we were visiting a friend's house. Badger's Hall gives you this warm feeling that a large B&B probably can't give you.
The accomodation is very comfortable. It's hard for me to imagine the building itself is a few hundred years old. The bathroom is spotless. Our room is huge. The breakfast was without doubt the best one I had in the entire trip to the UK. Paul's cooking was fabulous.
We really liked the Costwolds region of England. Staying at Badger's Hall was a highlight for visiting this region, for it encapsulates much of the character of this region.
Badgers Hall Highly Recommended
For "Badgers" from Wisconsin, Badgers Hall in Chipping Campden was a natural choice and our stay there was wonderful. Not only is it a beautifully restored 17th century building right across from the Market Hall, but Karen and Paul are perfect hosts. Friendly and helpful, Karen gives great tips about touring the area and Paul makes delicious breakfasts and lunches. And you will fall in love with Lillian, their dog. Our days there were definitely a high point of our trip to England.
Comfort in the Cotswolds
Last week, my mother and I spent three happy nights at Badgers Hall, perfectly located on the High Street of golden-stoned Chipping Campden. Friendly and thoughtful proprietors Paul and Karen have created a welcoming bed-and-breakfast, with high attention to detail. Our room was beautifully decorated, with coordinated fabrics and furniture enhancing the charming exposed-beam and stone construction. Our room was exceptionally spacious. The beds were comfortable, the pillows soft, the bathroom was large and beautifully tiled. The delicious breakfasts were cooked by Paul, who also bakes all the tempting offerings of their teashop. Karen happily answered questions, and dog Lillian was sweet.
We'd love to stay here again.
Warmth and attention to detail
After traveling for 16 days with three over 13 yr. olds, Badgers Hall was one of our favorite experiences. The ownners, Karen and Paul, and dog Lillian, welcomed us with warmth. Our rooms were quaint without being "ye olde", and much attention has obviously been paid to details. A real bonus was Paul's cooking. When we saw them after dinner, they greeted us like friends, and talked with us about the interesting history of their area.
Brilliant, "Great feel" B&B in the Cotswolds
In July 2005, My wife and I spent a few perfect days in the Cotwolds lodged at Badger's Hall in Chipping Campden. They were ideal hosts, friendly, welcoming, helpful and great cooks - so good, they actually manage a popular lunch/tea in the dining room in addition to keeping a supberb B&B with several rooms. A historical building, the B&B was VERY CLEAN and nicely furnished. Badger's Hall is located along the main road through town. Everything is within walking distance from Badger's Hall, including walking pathways though bean patches to thatch roofed homes. This is not London or the North of Wales. Karen directed us to a number a great pubs and restaurants. Don't miss this spot. They have website, check it out.

So Charming and Atmospheric!!!!
I'm really surprised I haven't seen more reviews on Badgers Hall! First of all, the location could NOT be better. Right smack across from Market Hall on Chipping Campden's High Street. This little gem is one of the most atmospheric places we've stayed. Badgers Hall is both a tea room and a B&B, and both are very well done. Each room has so much character! In our room (which they let us choose between two), the beams that hold the house together are all visible, and one goes right across the room! The hosts were so chipper and fun. And the scone with clotted cream was the best I had while in England. My husband and I loved this place. (He is a University of Wisconsin graduate, so he has a thing for Badgers in the first place!)
