Unusual or interesting place in the area
Shipston flourished as a centre for sheep trade – its very name, ‘sheepwashtown’, comes from the practice of washing animals in the river. Georgian houses and inns recall later prosperity from velvet-woollen weaving. Its location, deep in rural south Warwickshire, also makes Shipston an idyllic gateway to the Cotswolds. The first Agricultural College - in the English speaking world was founded by Henry 4th Earl Bathurst who became founding president of the Royal College of Agriculture in Cirencester. The college was established to train young farmers in the best agricultural methods of the time and to lead the way with innovations. Flat Green Bowls - Britain's oldest Bowling Green (over 400 years old), still in use to day, is located at the Falcon Inn in Painswick. The flat green in Painswick, was built in the 16th century at the back of the then newly built Falcon Inn. It was originally used for gentlemen to wind down after a day of hunting in the nearby Cotswold countryside. The lord of the manor who built it also had a cock fighting pit erected by its side. The Falcon Club, which now uses the green, dates back to the early 20th century. Most interesting Cotswold Church: Elkstone is a small tranquil village set high on the Cotswold escarpment, just off the A417 Gloucester to Cirencester road, six miles south of Cheltenham. Here you will find the most beautiful historic Norman church of St. John, set in an attractive wooded churchyard. The church, the highest in the Cotswolds, has some excellent architectural features including Norman carvings of monsters and birds, and has a number table top tombs. The village is an excellent start point for a variety of walks (both long and short), offering open upland and woodland scenery. In addition, the village also host a number of events each year, further details of which you will find on this site from time to time.

Type of Food: Contemporary British.
Interesting Facts: This luxury boutique hotel offers stylish contemporary accommodation in the heart of the peaceful little town of Shipston-on-Stour. We only serve you food we’d be happy to be served ourselves. This is why all our chicken, local eggs and Warwickshire pork are free range. Our beef is 28 day dry-aged from Herefordshire Cross herds. We avoid air-freighted fruit and vegetables by buying seasonal and British produce wherever possible. Our cheeses come from artisan producers.
One thing visitors should not miss
Banbury Road, Warmington, Banbury - Here’s something to perk up the senses: a series of small demonstration gardens full of colour and scent where you can learn about growing herbs, and see fields of rosemary, sage, thyme and parsley. Over 500 varieties of culinary, medicinal and scented herbs are available for sale, including 25 types of rosemary, 25 of lavender and 35 of thyme. Stop for a snack and sample the tasty flavours of fresh herbs, then meander along the nature trail down the valley and through the fields to the wood. -Brailes Hill & Ascott - Duration: 2 hours Embark on a ride of biking and walking tracks and exhilarating vistas: around the Vale of Feldon on the fringe of the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, riding over the Ironstone Hills and around Brailes Hill. The tracks are good, though largely soft and un-surfaced, so they are best tackled in dry or frosty conditions (it’s a muddy ride when wet!). Start the circuit at any point; we describe it here from Whichford in the South.
