Astley House - Fine Art & Interiors map


MORETON-IN-MARSH is one of the most accessable of all the Cotswold towns. Its pretty tree-lined High Street situated on the Roman Fosseway with mediaeval roads running East and West make it an ideal meeting place and, indeed, a thriving Market Town.  It has the benefit of a main line railway station, historically a railway line opened here in1826 one of the earliest in the country.  The Moreton line today offers an excellent service from  London (Paddington) which takes under two hours and provides a good entry to the Cotswolds for travellers who prefer to leave their cars behind.   Buses and taxis provide an onward service to other towns and villages. 

Accommodation is plentiful, there is the 4 star Manor House Hotel, the Redesdale Arms (named after Lord Redesdale who generously gave Moreton its Town Hall)  and the newly refurbished White Hart Royal Hotel where Charles I is reputed to have stayed.  These provide excellent food and there is also an abundance of pubs from which to choose.  The town is also the venue for the largest of the Cotswold markets which is held every Tuesday but also supports a thriving mix of shops and galleries, including two of our CADA members, Astley House Fine Art and Jeff Formby.
