Why Live in Quinton?

Quinton lies just in Warwickshire and on the borders of Worcestershire and is often referred to as the ‘Gateway to the Cotswolds’.

Much of the land in Quinton was or still is owned by Magdalen College, Oxford. The village comprises Lower Quinton and Upper Quinton. The older part includes Trinity House (the former village school), St Swithin’’s Church and the College Arms pub.

The updated BBC’s Doomsday Reloaded project, which a million volunteers took part in, defined what a village settlement must have:- a church, a shop, a post office, a village hall, a public house, a village green, places to work, housing, allotments and a parish council. Quinton has all of these!

Quinton is on one of the national cycling routes and a number of long distance footpaths can be accessed directly from the village. The Greenway is an old railway line but now a traffic free cycling and walking route from Meon Vale all the way into Stratford upon Avon.

The National Trust’s Hidcote Gardens is ten minutes’ drive away and next door to the privately owned Kiftsgate Gardens.

Meon Hill was the setting for the unsolved Valentine’s Day murder in 1945 which was thought to be linked to witchcraft. The hill has been surrounded by strange tales for many centuries, concerning devilish deeds and ancient hauntings. One legend from the eighth century says the Devil kicked a boulder from the top of the hill, intending to smash the recently built Evesham Abbey. The legend tells that his angry deed was thwarted by the locals' prayers and the stone instead fell on Cleeve Hill, outside Cheltenham.

Quinton has good transport links with junction 15 of the M40 approximately 12 miles away which gives access to the wider motorway network. There are railway stations at Honeybourne and Moreton in Marsh with direct trains to London. Quinton has a good Monday to Saturday bus service.
