The Cotswolds region

The Cotswolds predominantly falls within the county of Gloucestershire. The region is known for its distinctive Cotswold stone cottages and quintessential English villages. It is an area full of fabulous pubs, beautiful walks and pretty market towns and villages. It should especially appeal to those with a love for the great outdoors.

Ampney Crucis

Ampney Crucis is at the heart of the Cotswolds. Only three miles from Cirencester, the capital of the Cotswolds. Ampney Crucis is neighboured by Ampney St Mary and Ampney St Peter. Ampney Crucis gets its name from the river (Ampney Brook), a tributary of the Thames, and the church (Church of the Holy Cross). The village has a popular pub The Crown of Crucis. Just a short walk away is the Red Lion, situated in Ampney St Mary. Just a couple of miles away are the popular village pubs of The Falcon and Village Pub in Poulton and Barnsley respectively.

For those keen to learn more about the history of Ampney Crucis please visit the village website
