I would really appreciate the view from the house and the fact that all the shops and cafes are only a few minutes walk away.

Local information

  • Tetbury is a popular and lively traditional Cotswold market town, well known for its 17th and 18th Century architecture. Historically, the town was known for its wool market and more recently antique shops but today boutique and specialist shops, together with cafes, restaurants and bistros have come to the fore. As a result there is a bustling feel to the town with well known shops now including the Highgrove shop, Quayles Delicatessen, Moloh and the award winning Hobbs bakery. For more general shopping there is a Tesco superstore on the edge of the town and, twice a week, there is an open market under The Market House. There is a Waitrose in Malmesbury.
  • The town, once voted the third best town in which to live by Country Life Magazine, also supports a splendid parish church which has been described as having one of the best Georgian gothic designs; it has the fourth highest church spire in England.
  • Nearby is the world famous National Arboretum which covers 600 acres and boasts one of the most varied specimen collections in Europe as well as some 17 miles of trails.
