Ebrington is a village and parish in Gloucestershire, about two miles 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; 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 treasures the church shows a 17th-century canopied pulpit and mediæval 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.

There is an award-winning pub called The Ebrington Arms at the centre of the village. It is the hub of village life and traditional in style with flagstones and roaring open fires, dating from 1640. The pub has been voted the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) North Cotswolds Pub of the Year in 2009, 2010 and 2011.
