Birdlip is a village in Cotswold District of Gloucestershire in England, in the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, about 6 miles (9.7 km) south of Cheltenham and 8 miles (13 km) south east of Gloucester.
The village was once on the main road between Gloucester and Cirencester, now the A417. The building of a bypass, which opened in December 1988, moved the main route away from the village.
Black Horse Ridge is a 17th-century building that until 1900 was a public house. A lodge adjacent to Black Horse Ridge was designed by Richard Pace and built in 1822. Birdlip's remaining pub is The Royal George Hotel, which was built in the 19th century.
Birdlip has a community primary school.
Located next to the primary school is Birdlip and Brimpsfield Cricket Club (BBCC). The club has three senior teams, playing on Wednesdays and Saturdays. BBCC is famous for once fielding a team made entirely of members of the Partridge family.
