Swinbrook is, without doubt, a truly magical Cotswold village. Quintessentially English and preserved in time, it is the kind of place one dreams of but can often never find.
Just a moment’s stroll from The Swan Inn you can sometimes discover cricketers enjoying a game on our spectacular pitch and anglers hoping for a bite on the banks of the meandering Windrush. And as you wander past the historic stone cottages and houses you will catch a glimpse of a world that has seemingly remained unchanged over generations.
The church and yard provides some fascinating memorials to the Fettiplace family – owners of the manor during the 17th century. In more recent times, Swinbrook has been closely associated with the Mitfords and it is possible to visit the graves of some of the celebrated sisters, including Nancy, who penned the classic novel ‘Love in a Cold Climate’ in the late 1940s.
With Burford just two miles to the east and Oxford and Cheltenham within easy striking distance, visitors really are perfectly located.
