Sutton-under-Brailes

Sutton-under-Brailes is a lovely small village, located in the north-east of the Cotswolds, close to Moreton-in-Marsh, Chipping Norton and Chipping Campden, and approximately 15 miles away from Stratford-upon-Avon, the birthplace of William Shakespeare.

Along with the neighbouring villages of Cherington and Stourton, Sutton-under-Brailes is an active and friendly community, with a village hall, playground and playing fields. The origins of the beautiful church of St Nicholas in Cherington are believed to predate the Norman Conquest and much of the building dates back to the 13th century.

The Cherington Arms is a lovely local pub, just a short walk across the fields from Sutton-under-Brailes, whilst the villages of Upper and Lower Brailes are just over a mile away, offering two more village pubs, a village shop, an excellent butcher, a newsagents and a traditional French bakery.

Moreton-in-Marsh

Moreton-in-Marsh is one of the principal market towns in the North Cotswolds, situated on the Fosse Way and served by the main line railway from London Paddington. The town was granted its market charter in 1227 and there still is a busy Tuesday market, with about 200 stalls attracting many visitors.

Moreton has been a traveller's town for at least 1700 years and was used as a coaching station before the coming of the Oxford to Worcester railway in 1853. The oldest building is likely to be the 16th century Curfew tower on the High Street, whose bell was rung nightly until 1860 to remind people of the risk of fire. The High Street has many elegant 17th and 18th century inns and houses, including the Redesdale Market Hall in the centre of the town.

Moreton has a wide range of pubs, inns, hotels, tea shops and restaurants.

The Cotswolds

The Cotswolds are a range of hills in west-central England, sometimes called the "Heart of England". The name Cotswold means "sheep enclosure in rolling hillsides".

The Cotswolds are characterised by attractive small towns and villages, built of the underlying Cotswold stone (a yellow oolitic limestone). In the Middle Ages the wool trade made the Cotswolds prosperous and some of this money was put into the building of churches, leaving the area with a number of large handsome Cotswold stone "wool churches". The area remains affluent, which has encouraged the establishment of many high quality pubs, restaurants and antique shops.

Cotswold towns include Bourton-on-the-Water, Broadway, Burford, Chipping Norton, Cirencester, Moreton-in-Marsh, Northleach, Stow-on-the-Wold, Stroud and Winchcombe. The town of Chipping Campden is notable for being the home of the Arts and Crafts movement, founded by William Morris at the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th centuries. William Morris lived occasionally in Broadway Tower, a folly, now part of a country park. Chipping Campden is also known for the annual Cotswold Olimpick Games, a celebration of sports and games dating back to the early 17th century. Famous places close to the Cotswolds include Stratford-upon-Avon, the birthplace of William Shakespeare, Cheltenham, home to the famous horse racing festival, and the beautiful university city of Oxford.
