Yes, you can hear traffic on the Fosse way and there are bright lights from a carpark next door, but we were not troubled by these. So, a basic utilitarian site on the edge of one of the Cotswolds more touristy but nevertheless very attractive little town. I was told about this lovely place by my daughter who lives in Moreton in Marsh. I couldnt have wished for a better place to stay - My Brother and i had a room each and were looked after very well! Great Value for money, lovely friendly people.
Regarding earlier comments about the place smelling of smoke!!! Alf , Sandra and Mo were very welcoming and friendly, the rooms were very clean and tidy in a beautiful location near to all pubs shops and restaurants, breakfast was full english with cereals and tea, inexpensive for this part of the country, thouroughly delighted with my stay couldn't have wished for more, thank you very much x.
I booked 3 rooms at Fosseway for some of my rambling group - with mixed feelings, after reading some of the reviews. Fosseway Farm turned up trumps! All 3 guests were happy with their rooms, the service they were given, the excellent breakfasts and the many little extras on offer. No problem with the smoke mentioned by others and they would have noticed! As for location - it is 5 mins from the centre of Moreton, and the petrol station is not even visible from the house. All 3 said they would choose to stay there again.
I stsyed for 2 nights in the Gloucester suite and it was clean tidy and homely. Benefits include vegitarian options. Breakfast looks over the camp site.

They were rough years - a time to be looking over your shoulder. Allegiances shifted constantly, treachery was commonplace and armed conflict always in the wings. Richard was often on the move, of course. His holdings stretched as far west as Penrith Castle in Cumbria and included castles at Skipton and Richmond, and Sheriff Hutton Castle a few miles northeast of York—the administrative and ecclesiastical capital of the North.
In , war with Scotland occupied him for several years. Both in York and across the north, Richard was highly respected as a lord and administrator. Then, in April his brother the king died, and the Duke of Gloucester headed south.
The country and its capital were rife with the machinations of jockeying for political power, including the large and influential family of the queen, Elizabeth Woodville. Not surprisingly, there are several versions of what happened next.
FOSSEWAY FARM B&B - Reviews (Moreton-in-Marsh, Cotswolds) - TripAdvisor
A petition was subsequently presented to the duke asking him to take the throne, to which Parliament later unanimously assented in a document called the Titulus Regius. Richard accepted and was crowned king on July 6 at Westminster Abbey. Every conveyance of power was contested in those turbulent 15th-century decades and no political act went unchallenged. Every noble had something to gain and something to lose.
Towers and ramparts of Sheriff Hutton Castle remain, though not advertised in the guidebooks. They stand on private property, in the middle of a farm. There is a public footpath that leads around the complex.
His tomb is just down the street in St. Edward of Middleham is the only Prince of Wales buried in a parish church. That summer, the young princes in the Tower disappeared from public view.
Then the king, Richard III has always been accused and held responsible. What did happen was that Richard faced armed rebellion led by his former ally the Duke of Buckingham, and then the rallying of the last Lancastrian loyalists to Henry Tudor, the Earl of Richmond. Two years later, the king met Tudor at Bosworth Field, and the rest, as they say, is history. Its exhibition puts Richard on trial for the murder of the two young princes, and visitors are invited to render their own verdict.
Frankly, it is pretty camp and even tacky, and, of course, there are a plethora of souvenirs to be purchased. More seriously, however, focusing on what has proven flashy and dramatic, though totally unanswerable for five centuries, has obscured what we do know about the brief reign of Richard III. After being crowned king for less than six months and having faced down an armed rebellion, in December Richard established the Court of Requests, where poor people without recourse to legal representation could have their grievances heard. The next month he instituted the notion of bail, to prevent the imprisonment and seizure of property of accused individuals before trial.
