Noel Arms, Chipping Campden, Cotswolds
The Noel Arms is the real deal of an ancient honey-stone inn. With its reasonable room rates, it's a good base for walkers, and thanks to its excellent food it attracts many repeat visitors. Upstairs furnishings are a bit worn here and there, but that just reflects the character of this historic property.
The inn is a landmark building right in the heart of the lovely little town of Chipping Campden, from where the Cotswold Way long-distance footpath starts. Look out for the workshop of Hart Silversmiths down the way on Sheep Street.
The hotel is on Chipping Campden's picturesque high street, famous for its independent shops and buildings that date back to the 14th century.
By car: The hotel is around 2 hours 15 minutes from London, or 1 hour from Oxford and Birmingham.
By train: The closest station is Moreton-in-Marsh. Trains from London Paddington take 1 hour 30 minutes. After that, the taxi ride to the hotel takes 15 minutes. thetrainline.com
Style & Character
The Noel Arms has a great sense of history and the atmosphere of a tavern. It is even said to have been a sanctuary for Charles II after his defeat at the Battle of Worcester in 1651. Walkers and those enjoying a value-for-money break will love it here.

The hotel has eight dog-friendly rooms, and dogs can join their owners in the coffee shop, on the terrace and in the restaurant conservatory.
We love the 1657 suite, so-called because the figures for this year are carved into the magnificent four-poster bed in the room. One corridor has a 1930s telephone switchboard on display, adding quirky character.
