Shipton Under Wychwood
A Cotswold village inn with a tradition of hospitality dating back more than 700 years where you are assured of a warm welcome. This medieval hostelry, one of the ten oldest inns in the country, is set opposite the church and village green in the heart of the picturesque Cotswold village of Shipton Under Wychwood. Steeped in history, the hotel is full of charm and character with log fires, real ales and delicious food. It is perfectly located for exploring the Cotswolds, with Blenheim Palace and the historic towns of Cheltenham, Witney and Oxford nearby.

It was founded in the 14th century by the monks of Bruern Abbey, to house pilgrims and as a hospice for the poor and needy. Following the dissolution of the monasteries in the 16th century the Crown seized the hotel and Queen Elizabeth I later used it as a royal hunting lodge.
Subsequently it was given to the village on condition that it became an inn with the proceeds being used to help the poor. Early in the 20th century the inn passed into private ownership and was named the Shaven Crown in homage to its founders. Through the centuries it has maintained its charm and many original features remain, including the 14th century gateway and the double-braced roof structure of the Great Hall.
The Shaven Crown has eight en-suite double or twin bedrooms overlooking the medieval courtyard and village green. Each room is unique, but all abound with charm and character, especially the Old Chapel Room super king size bed and vaulted ceiling. Please note we have three rooms which are street facing - The Crown Room, The Ascott Room and The Pump Room (ground floor).
We have a large room which is situated on the ground floor with suitable access for those who wish to avoid too many steps (this can also be used as a family room). Our basic room, the Crown Room, has new furnishings, however the en-suite and carpet have not yet been updated. Additional beds and travel cots are available on prior request.
