Ebrington and the Foxcote Estate

4 miles (6.5 km)

This circular walk takes you around some beautiful countryside on the Gloucestershire/Warwickshire border in the Cotswolds AONB. It's a fairly easy walk, running for about 4 miles on good footpaths marked with yellow and blue arrows.
The village of Ebrington is close to Chipping Camden and has pretty thatched Cotswolds cottages and a popular pub dating from the 17th century. There is also Ebrington Manorwhich dates from the 14th century.
The walk starts in the centre of the village and climbs steadily through the countryside to Foxcote House. On the way you'll pass pretty streams, woodland and a lake near to the house. Look out for wildlife including buzzards, pheasants and deer.
Ebrington is located just a few miles to the east of Chipping Camden. If you prefer you could start the walk from here and follow the Monarch's Way and the Heart of England Way to the estate.
To extend your walk just head a mile or so north of Ebrington and you could visit the splendid Hidcote Manor Garden. There's also our Ilmington Walk which visits the delightful village with its thatched cottages and Norman church.

Foxcote House. I can find little on the history of this house, other than a 1891 census which records that Philip Howard, a magistrate lived here. The house is impressive and dates from the early 18th century.
