The local area guide to living in Badminton

Nicknamed the ‘most famous little village in the world’ by its residents, Badminton is well known for being the birthplace of the popular sport that bears its name. It also hosts annual horse trials, which draws thousands of visitors each May to the lush grounds of historic Badminton House. The village itself is a quaint place to live, featuring traditional cottages and farm houses in the Cotswold style of architecture that this area is well known for. This can particularly be seen in Little Badminton, a smaller settlement to the north. The St Michael and All Angels in Great Badminton church was built in 1785, and is a centre of community life and history. However the village’s main attraction is Badminton House, the historic home of the Duke of Beaufort.

Badminton is situated in Gloucestershire, just 15 miles away from Bristol or Bath and 85 miles to the west of London. It offers rural scenery, as well as a rich sense of history and tradition, giving this idyllic little village a big shadow.
