Wonderful Winchcombe

Wonderful Winchcombe

Escape the crowds and head to beautiful Winchcombe for a truly Cotswold experience. Home to magnificent Sudeley Castle and Gardens, it’s a Walkers Welcome town and has been a mecca for tourists since the Middle Ages visiting the tomb of St Kenelm.  Now it boasts beautiful Cotswold streets full to bursting with independent shops, galleries and eateries as well as some lovely places to stay.
