Shipston on Stour is a historic market town in the North Cotswolds, at the border of Warwickshire, Gloucestershire and Oxfordshire. Named the best place to live in the Midlands by The Sunday Times three years in a row, Shipston is home to a wealth of independent shops, from saddlers and clockmakers, to florists, butchers and bakers, antique shops, bespoke tailors and our wonderful, award-winning sister deli, Taste of the Country.
All within a few miles of us are: Stratford-upon-Avon – Shakespeare’s birthplace and home to the Royal Shakespeare Company; the idyllic Whichford Pottery; the award-winning gin and whisky makers at the Cotswolds Distillery, the Victorian Hook Norton Brewery, Batsford Arboretum, and a wealth of historic houses and gardens, such as Hidcote Manor, Kiftsgate Court, Bourton House, Upton House, Jacobean Chastleton House, and the remarkable Sezincote – built in 1805 as an extraordinary blend of Georgian and Mughal Indian architecture. Plus lots to do with kids – Warwick Castle, Batsford Falconry Centre, the Cotswold Wildlife Park for rhinos, lions and giant tortoises, and the MAD Museum to name a few – and mile upon mile of designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty walks, such as the famed Cotswold Way.
