Shrouded in history dating back several hundred years, the Noel Arms Hotel sits within the small Cotswolds town of Chipping Campden, known for its quaint cobbled streets and historic buildings. Quintessentially English villages surround the town, making accessible locations for day trips, while Evesham is located a 23-minute drive away. A little further on is Stratford-upon-Avon, the birthplace of William Shakespeare, which still retains many 16th century buildings including Shakespeare’s childhood home, and Anne Hathaway’s Cottage. Blending antique features with stylish decor, each of the en suite rooms include items designed to make guests feel right at home. As well as a flat screen TV and radio, rooms also feature a hairdryer, phone, fluffy towels and tea and coffee making facilities. Dining choices abound, with a variety of different areas in which to relax. Visitors can opt for the restaurant or the more casual conservatory or bar. Local produce is used wherever possible, with a curry night on the last Thursday of every month. Guests have access to the spa located within the Cotswold House Hotel, just a short 30-second walk away. Facilities include a hydrotherapy pool, a steam room and relaxation suite, while there are a handful of therapy rooms to take care of any aches or beauty requirements. Access to the facilities is an £11.50 surcharge for two people for two hours, while pre-booked spa treatments will receive a 20% discount.
