Set above the River Osbourne, Winchcombe became prosperous from the wool trade and the part it played in the tobacco trade. It’s Abbey was one of the largest Benedictine monasteries in England.

Known as the “walking capital” of the Cotswolds, Winchcombe sits at the intersection of the Cotswold Way, the Gloucestershire Way, the Wardens Way, the Windrush Way and the new Winchcombe Way.

A lovely hidden jewel in the Cotswold crown, Winchcombe has a busy cultural and commercial schedule, and offers a good selection of top quality restaurants, tea shops and public houses.
