Shipton Moyne: A Tranquil Cotswolds Village (2023)

Shipton Moyne is a picturesque and tranquil village in the Cotswolds (designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in 1966) and between Tetbury and Malmesbury (where there’s a Waitrose supermarket).

The Fosse Way, a Roman road built during the first and second centuries, passes through the village, and Hodges Barn features a dovecote (place where pigeons nest) converted into a home and gardens with shrubs, herbaceous, magnolia, cherries, and a water garden.

St John the Evangelist Church is another landmark of the village, a Grade II listed building which serves as its parish church. Inside there is a figure of a knight and lady in the chapel and a font dedicated to Edward Dugdale Bucknall Estcourt, a politician between 1805 and 1847.

In Shipton Moyne is a delightfully named pub called the Cat & Custard Pot Inn serving country pub food and offering accommodation.

Heathrow Airport to Shipton Moyne takes approximately 1 hour 40 minutes by car.
