Court Barn is a small museum -- just two rooms, really -- but we spent over an hour here. There is a very good permanent exhibit on the history of the arts-and-crafts movement in the Cotswolds, and then a changing exhibit. I recommend visiting the...More

A VERY well done exhibit regarding the Arts and Crafts Movement in the area. Not to be missed. Lots of wonderful artifacts and information. Also, local artisans work available to buy.

So glad we stopped here while in Chipping Campden. While small, the museum provides great insight about local history and culture. The displays are informative and appealing.

For the richest experience you need to make good use of the touchscreen displays. They give loads of information on the Arts & Crafts movements, the artefacts, and the people. We had a really good introductory talk by one of the volunteers. The only downside...More

I loved this museum. It is small and manageable with photos, historical artifacts and videos to tell the story of how the arts and crafts movement came to the Cotswolds. When I visited, there was also a craft show and I was able to meet...More
