Moreton-in-Marsh, located in north-eastern Gloucestershire, is the main settlement in the North Cotswolds. One reason for its importance has long been its accessibility. It has welcomed travellers since Roman times, thanks to its position either side of the Fosse Way and, much later, as a staging post on the London to Worcester coach road, hence the proliferation of historic inns in the town.
Today, it is the only town with a mainline train station in the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (“AONB”), making it the perfect starting point for a visit to this picturesque part of the country.
Moreton-in-Marsh itself is a charming and busy little town, which still hosts a market every Tuesday (dating to a 1227 charter) that fills the broad, handsome High Street. Cotswold stone townhouses, many of them dating to Jacobean and Georgian times, provide an elegant backdrop to the daily hustle and bustle.
