Welcome to the Shaven Crown


 

A WARM WELCOME

With a tradition of hospitality dating back more than 700 years, we warmly welcome you to The Shaven Crown.

This medieval hostelry, one of the oldest inns in the country, is set opposite the church and village green in the heart of the picturesque Cotswold village of Shipton under Wychwood.

The hotel is full of charm and character with open fires, real ales and home-made food.

The hotel is perfectly located for exploring the Cotswolds, with Blenheim Palace and the historic towns of Burford, Witney, Cheltenham and Oxford nearby.

AN HISTORIC HOTEL

The Shaven Crown was founded in the 14th century by the monks of Bruern Abbey to house pilgrims and as a hospice for the poor and needy.

Following the dissolution of the monasteries in the 16th century the Crown seized the hotel and Queen Elizabeth I later used it as a royal hunting lodge.

Subsequently it was given to the village on condition that it became an inn with the proceeds being used to help the poor.

Early in the 20th century the inn passed into private ownership and was named the Shaven Crown in homage to its founders.

Through the centuries it has maintained its charm, and many original features remain, including the 14th century gateway and the double-braced roof structure of the iconic Great Hall.
