Places to Visit whilst staying in
The Cat and Custard Pot is situated in the pretty village of Shipton Moyne , in the heart of the South Cotswolds. The historic towns of Tetbury and Malmesbury are within a stone’s throw and we are very close to Westonbirt, the National Arboretum and Highgrove, with its magical gardens.
The cities of Bath Spa and Bristol , both of which have a multitude of historical and cultural attractions , are approximately 25 miles away and for equestrian sports enthusiasts, Badminton and Gatcombe Horse Trials, Cheltenham Racecourse and the Beaufort Polo Club are within easy reach.
We are in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and there are many wonderful walks directly from our front door. We welcome well-behaved dogs.
Highgrove is the private residence of HRH The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall. The Prince of Wales came to Highgrove in 1980 and since then the house and gardens have undergone many innovations, and now its organic gardens are open to the public for guided tours between April and October each year. Tickets must be booked in advance.
The Arboretum was created nearly two hundred years ago by Robert Holford, who also built Westonbirt House (now Westonbirt School) and the lovely gardens surrounding it. There are around 15,000 specimens and 2,500 species of trees from all over the world set in 240 hectares of landscaped gardens and woods, with plenty of information for young and old alike. Visit their website for details of entry tickets, activities and events at Westonbirt.
