The Cotswolds

Minchinhampton is a charming and historic Market Town in the Cotswolds, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.   Minchinhampton is situated centrally within the Cotswolds, making it an ideal place to stay for a weekend break or short holiday.  The town is adjacent to Minchinhampton Common - 600 acres of land designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) which is grazed by cows and horses in the summer months and provides habitats for rare butterflies, orchids and much more.   Minchinhampton has all of the benefits of the Cotswolds, with beautiful Cotswold stone houses in the historic centre of the town, lovely countryside all around with fabulous views, a thriving High Street with shops and cafes, yet none of the coach loads of tourists stopping off for a quick photo opportunity.  


Where to Eat

Minchinhampton has a variety of award-winning shops, cafes and a pub, The Crown, all within easy walking distance of The Close.

There are now four cafes/restaurants, each with their own distinctive characters:

The Kitchen is a fabulous place to pop in for a cup of coffee, delicious cakes and light lunches. 

Sophie's Restaurant serves excellent quality French patisserie, lunches and dinners (mostly on a Saturday - check opening dates/times).  They also have a little shop at the back of the restaurant selling French wines and other goodies.

Henry's new cafe, attached to the organic Woefuldane Dairy shop, is a great place to relax over coffee and a cake, whilst watching the world go by.

And last, but not least, is Munchinhampton, a charming little cafe tucked away in West End, just past the butchers, where Holly and Adam cook tasty breakfasts, lunches and suppers.
