Bledington has always been a popular place but increasingly so over the recent years. One of the most picturesque villages, with a variety of lovely houses overlooking the green it offers its residents a quintessential Cotswold environment.
However, most importantly behind the charming exterior is a village with an inclusive and active community across all age groups. At a time when the traditional village shop has become a rarity, Bledington boasts one of the best stocked café and shops in the Cotswolds. Run by a team of volunteers and being community owned, it has become a firm favourite with locals and visitors alike. It goes from strength to strength supplying a wide range of products, many fresh and local, with a fine selection of wines and even its own local Bledington Gin. The cafe is a popular meeting place.

Another established and award-winning favourite is The Kings Head pub. Owned by Archie and Nicola Orr-Ewing, their team have provided a welcoming pub for locals with consistently good food, and beautifully decorated rooms for those passing through. Sunday lunch is always particularly popular with families so make sure you book ahead. https://www.thekingsheadinn.net/
We are particularly lucky to have a choice of superb primary schools located in some of best villages and Bledington Primary School is one of the best. Set in lovely grounds and with the motto “Engage, Enjoy, Challenge” the team have created a motivated and hard-working school in a happy and safe environment. www.bledington.gloucs.sch.uk/welcome/
