Delightful town atmosphere

Hosting the largest open air market in the Cotswolds, Moreton-in-Marsh is renowned as a hub for local produce, arts and crafts. Pop by this historic market on a Tuesday to browse over 200 stalls. The high street is lined with charming 17th and 18th century buildings, occupied by quaint independent shops and businesses. While browsing Moreton-in-Marsh’s famous centre, be sure to stop for a coffee and a delicious homemade cake at Martha’s Coffee House. Foodies shouldn’t miss out on a visit to the Cotswold Cheese Company, offering more than 80 artisan and farmhouse cheeses.

The town is home to the incredibly unique Sezincote Estate. At the heart of this traditional estate covering 2,500 acres of Cotswold countryside, you’ll find a 200-year-old Mogul Indian palace. This special attraction is well worth a visit. If you’d like to explore stunning parkland and plant life, head to Batsford Arboretum and Garden Centre . Housing one of the finest botanical collections in the country, this beautiful site is perfect for walking and enjoying a picnic. Keen ramblers will enjoy the route through Moreton-in-Marsh and Batsford. The circular route stretches 3.5 miles and offers opportunities for spotting resident wildlife, such as deer.

Local shops and amenities

Film and TV fans will enjoy a trip to Chastleton House, where the hit BBC series Wolf Hall was filmed. This stunning Jacobean country house dates back to the early 1600s and is open to visitors. Step back in time and wander through the remarkable house and grounds. History buffs will be interested to know that the White Hart Inn reputedly housed King Charles I in 1642.

“With traditional Cotswold stone buildings, beautiful estates and a bustling centre, Moreton-in-Marsh is a popular Gloucestershire town.”

If you’ve worked up an appetite exploring this lovely town, stop by The Coach and Horses just outside Moreton-in-Marsh. Opt for smooth potted chicken liver pate with red onion marmalade or, for something more filling, a trio of Sudley Hill Farm sausages, mustard mash and caramelised onion gravy. If you’re stopping here for dinner, try the crisp belly or pork with dauphinoise potatoes, beetroot and tarragon jus or whole Donnington rainbow trout stuffed with fennel, lemon and herbs. To sample hearty British classics made with fresh local ingredients, try The Greedy Goose. Expect rosemary and garlic roasted whole Poussin or a wholesome steak, ale and mushroom pie.

The town is close to Stow-on-the-Wold, Bourton-on-the-Water and Cheltenham.
