The small Cotswold town of Winchcombe centres around its high street which is lined by many period properties, curiosity shops, antique shops, tea rooms and pubs. There is a local deli, a butcher, a baker but not quite a candle stick maker (as the nursery rhyme goes….) Local events such as Festival of Music and Arts make this gem of the Cotswolds an undiscovered delight. Sudeley Castle, home of Katharine Parr, is central to the town's heritage. It's a short drive to Stow-on-the-Wold passing through pretty villages such as Ford and Lower Swell, ten mins from Cheltenham and less than an hour to Stratford-upon-Avon. The Gloucestershire and Warwickshire preserved steam railway has a station stop in the village too.
