The Cotswolds is a stunning unspoiled region of England's countryside - officially deemed an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Gently rolling hills, honey-coloured limestone and ancient picturesque towns and villages make this a delightful location to call home. There are few areas in the UK that offer such an extensive range of outdoor activities as the Cotswolds Water Park. Being wonderfully flat, with over 3000 miles of public footpaths, makes it a great place to walk, run and cycle. On the lake you will find the sailing club and angling club and on land, the South Cerney 18-hole golf club and riding school. Both close to home and further afield, the Cotswolds play host to a variety of events throughout the year such as the legendary Cheltenham Gold Cup at the Cheltenham Festival and the town's International Jazz festival. The Cotswold Show and Badminton Horse Trials are also days out not to be missed. Steeped in history, the Cotswolds is home to an abundance of heritage destinations. Many of the striking and scenic towns and cities close by boast stunning architecture and buildings of significant historical importance such as Bath's spas, Gloucester's Cathedral and Malmesbury's Abbey, and great shopping too! The Cotswolds is also home to the largest collection of serious art and antique dealers outside of London. South Cerney is well served for schooling with Ann Edwards Church of England Primary School right in the heart of the village. Just a few miles out and within easy access is a choice of good state and independent schools and colleges catering for children up to 18 years. Options include Westonbirt, Redcombe College, Deer Park and Kingshill in Cirencester and Prior Park Prep school in Cricklade.
