Chipping Campden is a ‘garden town’ in the Cotswolds

Chipping Campden is a small market town in the Cotswolds, described as ‘the most beautiful village street now left on the island’ (G.M. Trevelyan English social history, 1944).

    My personal best Barnsley House Garden, love it looks like it came out of a fairy-tale. Great selection by the way.
