Ebrington is a village and civil parish in Gloucestershire, England, about 2 miles (3.2 km) from Chipping Campden. It has narrow lanes and tiny streets of Cotswold stone houses and cottages, many of which are thatched.

A manor has existed at Ebrington for several centuries, it was owned by the Fortescue family who also had estates in Exmoor. The ancient church of St. Eadburgha shows many monuments to the family including one to Sir John Fortescue in his robes as Lord Chief Justice. Sir John died in 1476. The church is mainly Perpendicular with some Norman work remaining in the north and south doorwars, of its other treasures the church shows a 17th-century canopied pulpit and medieval stained glass windows.

Just a short distance from Ebrington is the National Trust property of Hidcote Manor whose Cotswold gardens are said to be the most beautiful gardens of the 20th-century.
