About Chadlington

Picturesque quiet Cotswold village set on Chadlington Downs amidst attractive walking country just a short distance away from the lovely River Evenlode.

The Bronze-Age Hawk Stone can be seen in a field a short distance away from the village, and at Spelsbury you can see interesting ancient buildings of the 17th-century.

In Chadlington itself, there are lovely old Cotswold cottages, an atmospheric inn from the 17th-century, a couple of pleasant shops, and beautiful countryside footpaths to wander. This lovely Evenlode Valley village is just a short distance away from the enchanting Wychwood Forest, where Henry VIII, and other Tudor monarchs hunted. The forest is a romantic place, offering wonderful scenery and a rich variety of wildlife. The forest lies in an area designated for its outstanding natural beauty.

In this part of the Cotswolds there are many other lesser known villages and hamlets to explore, their quiet charm and warm atmosphere makes a pleasant alternative to the popular tourist filled Cotswold resort towns. Often you can come across the unexpected - in the outlying hamlet of Taston you can see an old village cross and a Victorian commemorative fountain.

The model village at Bourton-on-the-Water is within easy driving distance.
