Moreton-in-Marsh is an attractive market town situated in the northern Cotswolds at the head of the Evenlode valley, on the Fosse Way, and mid way between Chipping Norton and Stow on the Wold. Hundreds of years ago, it was once a major stopping point on a Roman road which travelled from the south coast all the way to Lincoln. Much of the towns architecture is still evident and displays history and classic signs of the region's 'style'.
As you would expect the town has a long history including being a stopping location for the old coaching route from London to Worcester, hence several coaching inns that still exist today. Additionally, there is The Four Shires Stone is about two miles out of the town - the meeting place of four counties: Gloucestershire, Warwickshire, Worcestershire and Oxfordshire.
Today the town has a great selection of shops including teashops, restaurants, antiques and art galleries. There are many delightful Cotswolds villages within a short drive with more of the well known hotspots such as Bourton on the Water, Burford and Stow on the Wold very close by. Warwick and Warwick Castle plus Stratford upon Avon are nearby also.

Add to this the fact that there is a train station in Moreton (just 2 mins walk away also) with direct access to Oxford and London, a great location for sure!!
