Local information

  • Frampton Mansell is set in the picturesque valley of the River Frome. The village which lies in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty supports ‘a perfect village pub', the building having been built as a cider house in the 17th century. The Parish Church was built by the 4th Earl Bathurst in 1843 to save the parishioners a walk to the Parish Church in Sapperton. Close by is Jolly Nice, an award winning farm shop with café and butcher. Frampton Mansell lies in the parish of Sapperton, where there are two more pubs, The Bell and The Daneway, a destination for an enjoyable cycle ride. At the bottom of the village is the well known, nine arch Brunel viaduct.
  • The two principal towns in the area are Cirencester and Stroud (voted as best place in the UK to live by The Sunday Times recently), both of which have good shopping, commercial and recreational amenities. Cirencester is the more frequently used by those in the village and has all the facilities expected of a market town - a modern hospital, library, sports centre, supermarkets, multiple traders and smaller family run specialist shops. Stroud also supports a Waitrose as well as an exceptional farmers market.
  • Recreational pursuits include golf at Minchinhampton, polo at Cirencester Park, gliding at Aston Down, sailing at the Cotswold Water Park and riding at a number of local centres. World class eventing takes place at nearby Gatcombe Park. As one would expect there are lovely walks along the valley and across the wide commons of Minchinhampton and Rodborough.
