Aldwincle, Northamptonshire – All Saints

The church of All Saints in Aldwincle was the original Champing™ church and remained the firm favourite throughout the 2016 season. Was it the fact that smiley Farmer Tim brings an enormous cooked breakfast to the door in the morning, or the enchantment of the mellow stone and quaint village setting that makes Aldwincle so special? Or is messing about on the River Nene the main attraction? Come and see for yourself…

    A fantastic experience. Breakfast was outstanding too. Thank you so much for all the details – home comfort/ candles and of course the children loved playing the organ.

    Brilliant place to stay, and Chana was great in helping with the booking and getting everything ready. Thank you!

    This without doubt was one of the most incredible places I’ve ever been lucky enough to stay in. Right from the moment with drove up to see the true size of the building and then to opened up “our own church” with the huge front door key. A beautifully clean space, sparse but with enough care placed into the decoration by the Champing team to make it homely. A wonderful meal at the Snooty Fox (2 miles away) was followed by a delightful evening sat talking over a glass of wine in the sacred space under (battery powered) candle light. A peaceful nights sleep was gently interrupted by a knock on the door from the local farmer bringing us breakfast; a substantial feast of bacon, sausage, egg, tomato and mushroom cob, with hot croissants, yoghurt and fruit. We spent our remaining time exploring every nook and cranny of the wonderful building, reading all the inscriptions engraved and etched into the floors, walls, windows and fittings. A truly marvellous night. We’ve already booked to visit another Champing church.
