Ozleworth: A Village Of Old World Charm (2023)

Ozleworth is a tranquil village in the Cotswolds, an area designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in 1966, and near Wotton-under-Edge, and boasts an old world charm.

The name, Ozleworth, means ‘enclosure frequented by blackbirds‘ and dates back to 940 and appeared in the Domesday Book as Osleworde in 1086.

The Cotswolds is a region that’s perfect for those interested in religious architecture, with a range of beautiful buildings that showcase the rich spiritual heritage of England.

Many of these historic buildings have been lovingly restored over hundreds of years, and a common characteristic of parishes, towns, and villages in the Cotswolds is that they will all have church or chapel (sometimes both) that are unique.

In Ozleworth, the church is dedicated to St. Nicholas Of Myra and has existed since 1131 and has a hexagonal tower which is quite unusual.

Nearby is the house, garden and estate of Newark Park, a National Trust property, and worth a visit.

By car from Heathrow Airport takes approximately 2 hours and 15 minutes.

If you’re visiting Ozleworth, then you may be interested in Northleach, Lower Slaughter, Mickleton, or Oddington.
