Bank Cottage

Longborough, Cotswold, England

spacer line

This semi-detached cottage is reached by a grass bank, which is part of the village green.

Longborough has delightful vistas over the Evenlode valley. There are plenty of walks across marvellous countryside, including the Monarch's Way and the Heart of England Way. This peaceful village, which is within a conservation area, has a shop and a traditional pub. Longborough lies between the historic towns of Moreton-in-Marsh and Stow-on-the-Wold, which have quality shops, pubs and restaurants.

Longborough is a good base from which to visit Sezincote gardens, the Cotswold Farm Park, Batsford Arboretum and Falconry Centre and Sudeley Castle. Longborough Festival Opera in late June and July is a worthwhile visit.

Local Favorites
Favorite Local Pub
Name: Eagle & Child Pub at The Royalist Hotel
Interesting Facts: Connected to the hotel is our equally historic pub, with it’s beamed ceilings and stone flagged floors, the Eagle & Child is one of the most popular pubs in Stow-on-the-Wold. Legend has it the pub was a venue used for cock fighting and bear baiting, but today we offer a more civilised atmosphere with an enticing selection of traditional pub food, served either in the pub itself or in our large conservatory.
Unusual or interesting place in the area
Longborough Church: Attractively sited village on a hill slope looking out eastwards over the broad Evenload Valley with a pleasant inn called the Coach and Horses. The church is of Norman origins with a 13th-century tower and a 14th-century south transept. This houses the very grand 17th-century monument to Sir William Leigh complete with his wife and children, and a monument to a 14th-century night and his lady, for whom this transept was probably built. The North transept , added after the demolition of nearby Sezincote church, is sealed off and houses the tomb of Sir Charles Cockerell, the builder of Sezincote. The Cotswolds: Within a few miles of the historic town of Chipping Campden, with its honey-gold stone buildings, Charingworth Manor sits at the gateway to the Cotswold Hills. An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, it is no surprise that this is one of the most popular destinations in England. Meandering roads take you to quaint villages with thatched cottages and traditional pubs, and delightful market towns such as Stow on the Wold, Burford and Broadway, and you can lose yourself in miles and miles of footpaths through ancient landscape that will take your breath away. Explore historic National Trust properties and gardens such as Chedworth Roman Villa and the world famous gardens at Hidcote Manor. Take a day out to Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwick Castle or the magnificent Blenheim Palace. See for miles from Broadway Tower or the Malvern Hills. Absorb yourself in thousands of years of history. PLUS Batsford Arboretum, Hidcote and Kiftsgate gardens, Bourton on the Water, Broadway Tower and Country Park, Cheltenham Racecourse, Cotswold Falconry Centre, Gloucestershire and Warwickshire Railway, Sudeley Castle and Gardens
