About Winchcombe

Winchcombe is an ancient Saxon town situated on the famous Cotswold Way about 7 miles north-east of Cheltenham (2hrs to London Paddington by train), 8 miles from Broadway and 16 miles from Gloucester.  Many of the houses are listed as being of architectural interest and part of the town lies within the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.  The thriving local community offers an excellent range of amenities including independent shops, supermarkets, several pubs and restaurants, dental and doctors surgeries, a library, an 'Outstanding' primary school, a secondary school and numerous clubs and societies.

This delightful town has a ‘village’ atmosphere with interesting rows of mellow stone houses and period cottages lining the streets. More modern development has been relatively small-scale enabling the town to grow gradually yet retain its character and village community. Sudeley Castle is intertwined with Winchcombe’s history and was once home to Katherine Parr when Lord Seymour, High Admiral of England married her following Henry VIII’s death.

Whilst tourism plays a part in Winchcombe’s prosperity today, it remains principally a small working town with attractive buildings and a wide range of local businesses, everyday shops and amenities and a thriving local community offering lots of activities. The beautiful surrounding Cotswold countryside is easily accessible on foot which has no doubt contributed to it becoming the walking capital of the Cotswolds and with "Walkers are Welcome" status Winchcombe sits at the intersection of the Cotswold Way, the Gloucestershire Way, the Wardens Way, the Windrush Way and the new Winchcombe Way.
