Arts and Crafts
Chipping Campden, about four miles from Hidcote, became an important centre for the Arts and Crafts Movement in the early 20th Century. Many craftsmen and women moved there after William Morris set up his country home at Kelmscott Manor near Lechlade. Local artists continue to keep alive the area’s reputation as a centre of excellence, producing high quality, unique pieces of jewellery and pottery which we sell in our shop.
