Why you should choose Moreton-in-Marsh location
Moreton in the Marsh is a very historic town that neighbors Stow-on-the-Wold and is a short drive away from the infamous Bourton-on-the-Water. However, Moreton-in-the-Marsh is much more of a hidden gem than the aforementioned Cotswold locations and as such, a more budget-friendly holiday location.
The Parish church of St. David was originally a chapel of ease for Bourton-on-the-Hill and in 1858 was rebuilt in medieval style. Two miles away in the hamlet of Dorn, many Roman remains have been found and still have people searching when the opportunity arises. The White Hart (Royal) Hotel was used by King Charles I as shelter during the English Civil War following the Battle of Marston Moor on July 2, 1644.
A copy of the King’s unpaid bill is commemorated on a plaque within the entrance lobby for visitors to look upon when they arrive. The surrounding area as well as the town itself has multiple connections to both the literary and the world of film and television.
The famous author J.R.R. Tolkien
is believed to have had connections with Moreton in Marsh a pub in the town was presented with a special print by a branch of the J.R.R. Tolkien Society. After painstaking research, the Society claims that The Bell Inn located within the town is the inspiration behind The Prancing Pony, Middle Earth’s most famous pub in the Fellowship of the Ring, the first book and film of the ‘Lord of the Rings trilogy.
The Society believes the similarities between The Bell Inn and The Prancing Pony in Tolkien’s town of Bree is irrefutable evidence Tolkien used the pub as inspiration. These similarities include the three stories of the pub building and its entrance via a courtyard, and the similarities of Moreton in Marsh
to the town of Bree, where the hobbits find the Prancing Pony on a cold, rainy night.
Whether you have come for the opportunity to make the most of the markets, restaurants and tea shops in the area or if you have just come to see the real-life Prancing Pony and get closer to your favorite stories and films from when you were younger, Moreton in Marsh has the calm serenity that will make your holiday exactly what you were looking for.
