about The Shaven Crown
The Shaven Crown has a fascinating history and was founded in the 14th century by the monks of Bruern Abbey to house pilgrims. It was later seized by Queen Elizabeth I and used as a royal hunting lodge. 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 Great Hall. Steeped in history, the hotel is full of character with log fires, real ales and tasty food. Perfectly located for exploring the Cotswolds or visiting Blenheim Palace and the historic towns of Cheltenham and Oxford, the hotel is the ideal venue for a stunning escape.
