Didmarton: A Pretty Picture-Postcard Village (2023)

Didmarton is a picturesque English village in the Cotswolds (an area designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in 1966) on the edge of the Badminton Estate. Surrounded by stunning countryside, with plenty of shops and pubs, the village is an ideal base to explore this part of England; within reach are Tetbury, Cirencester, Bath and Bristol.

The church in Didmarton dates from the 12th century and is on the edge of Tetbury village to your left when entering from Tetbury.

There’s a churchyard here as well as an attractive stone structure with a tower and spire on top and constructed in 1670, is Grade II listed and, inside the choir area, you’ll find an ancient carved pulpit.

Something unusual can be found in Didmarton namely, Joyce’s Pool is a natural swimming pool fed from an underground spring and named after a young girl who drowned there in 1839.

Heathrow Airport to Didmarton takes an hour and a half.
