Sorry pets and smoking are not allowed at Campion Cottage. Please note that the cottage has low doorways, so tall people get ready to duck! Also, due to steep stairs and the high-sided bath, the cottage is not suitable and those with limited mobility. It is also not suitable for infants/very young children.
Campion Cottage is situated in the heart of Willersey, a small village on the northern edge of the picturesque Cotswolds, bordering the Vale of Evesham. It is about 6 miles from Evesham and easily accessed by car from the M5, A424, A46 and the A429 (the Fosse Way).
With excellent public transport links, the cottage can be enjoyed without the need for a car. There is a nearby train station at Honeybourne (with direct services to London, Oxford and Worcester) plus buses from the village to Broadway, Evesham, Cheltenham, Moreton-in-the-Marsh and Stratford-upon-Avon.
In Willersey there are two pubs: the Bell Inn and New Inn. Both serve food at reasonable prices. Only a couple of miles away is the vibrant village of Broadway with its newly open Broadway Ashmolean Museum (an offshoot of the famous Oxford institution) as well as shops, tea rooms, restaurants and pubs.
A little further is Chipping Camden which is walkable, if you are of a sturdy constitution and are happy to tackle a steep hill. Evesham is short journey away, and there you will find the nearest large supermarkets. It is also a picturesque market town in its own right.
