Winchcombe is an unspoilt golden-coloured market town set above the River Isbourne on the Cotswold edge. Cottages, small shops, good pubs and tea rooms give the town a warmth all of its own. The town was an important centre in Saxon times and later became the site of one of the largest Benedictine monasteries in England. Although the abbey has now gone, the town thrives.
