A large portion of The Cotswolds spans across Gloucestershire, most period properties here are built with the golden or honey coloured Cotswold stone. Many buildings are listed, this is something to be aware of when purchasing in The Cotswolds as you might not be able to make any changes to the property depending on the listing type.
Cirencester is a central hub in the Cotswolds, the town has a good mix of larger chain shops and small independents as well as hosting several markets through the week at The Market Place.
The town is often busy with visitors and during term time students studying at the nearby Royal Agricultural University. Cirencester has many attractions including a polo club, Cirencester Park and golf at Cirencester Golf Club.
Nearby, the train station in the village of Kemble offers a direct train journey into London Paddington in 1 hour 15 minutes. Although it is a small unassuming village, Kemble also has a private airfield. Kemble and the surrounding villages are popular places to live for those who require good transport connections.
A short drive from Cirencester is the town of Tetbury, as with many Cotswolds towns, picturesque Tetbury has been very well preserved and retains much of its original character.
Finding a property in the centre of town can be difficult as the most desirable places rarely come to the market. Tetbury has a wide range of independent shops including Highgrove shop. The private residence of The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall, Highgrove House and Gardens is just outside of Tetbury centre.

West of Cheltenham is Gloucestershire’s county town, the cathedral city of Gloucester, perhaps more affordable than nearby Cheltenham. Gloucester has excellent transport connections with trains reaching Birmingham and Bristol within an hour and London Paddington in under two hours.
The regency buildings around the Cathedral are some of the most favoured places to live in Gloucester centre. Alternatively, the villages surrounding Gloucester such as Upton St Leonards and Minsterworth offer more green surroundings and larger country homes with private land.
In north Gloucestershire is the pretty, well preserved town of Tewkesbury, most of the town’s buildings are listed meaning they cannot be redeveloped ensuring Tewkesbury holds onto its historical charm. Properties here can often be hard to come by as those who move here rarely choose to leave.
