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.

Ebrington Manor has existed at Ebrington since the 14th century;[2] it is 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 doorways, of its other notable features the church shows a 17th-century canopied pulpit and medieval stained glass windows. It is a Grade I listed building.[3]

Near Ebrington is the National Trust property of Hidcote Manor with notable Cotswold gardens.[4]

The Ebrington Arms pub at the centre of the village dates from 1640, and was voted the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) North Cotswolds Pub of the Year in 2009, 2010 and 2011. It has held two AA Rosettes for food since 2010.[5]

Ebrington Primary school is federated with a larger primary (St James in Chipping Campden). It received a "Good" Ofsted inspection in 2014 and in 2019 was rated as "Requires Improvement".[6] Ebrington Primary celebrated its 175 birthday in 2016 with a 'living history' day for the children and the official opening of new playground equipment.
