This peaceful and picturesque little village retains period features and charm, and benefits from having three pubs, a post office and a local grocery store, as well as being famous for brewing traditional real ale at the local brewery.

Hook Norton is on the fringe of the Cotswolds, therefore avoiding heavy tourist traffic, allowing visitors to get a real sense of rural life, such as enjoying the glorious countryside, open vistas and lovely woodlands which fall within the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Hook Norton is close to the popular Cotswold market towns of Chipping Norton, Moreton-in-Marsh and Stow-on-the-Wold, and has many stunning countryside walks right on the doorstep.
