Tetbury, the second largest town in the Cotswolds is situated within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and considered an ‘architectural gem’, with the centre displaying many fine historic stone buildings.
Renowned for its antique shops, there is also an array of clothes and gift shops along with numerous independent cafes and restaurants to tempt you in. The recently renovated Goods Shed provides an innovative arts and cultural hub hosting a number of different events.
Highgrove sits on the outskirts of Tetbury and home to HRH Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall who open their doors throughout the year for events and garden tours. Westonbirt Arboretum, the largest in England attracts many visitors to walk the grounds or enjoy a concert. Equine lovers will not want to miss the Festival of British Eventing at Gatcombe Park, home to Princess Anne. Chavenage House has become a popular tourist destination and Poldark fans will recognise its elegant facade from the TV series.
With an excellent range of facilities and choice of schools coupled with easy access to main trainlines and motorway connections, it is not difficult to see why this town and its surrounding villages holds such appeal.
