Living in the Cotswolds

What its like to live in the Cotswolds

The unique Cotswolds region of England provides wonderful living conditions to suite all tastes and pockets.

The region is very popular with Americans as the Cotswolds is quintessentially England going back to the 16th and 17th centuries when the early settlers set off to discover a new life across, what is now, a very small pond.

The romantic notion of 'going back in time' is, in our modern technological world, an appealing one to many people and of course this is what the Cotswolds offer, but with the modern conveniences that we have come to take so much for granted, albeit, in very much of a toned down way.

The Cotswolds villages and ancient market towns are totally preserved and most officially protected by the government in 'Conservation Areas' and by being either Grade I or II listed buildings. It is because of this that any new building, if any, will be found well away from the idyllic village setting and very much hidden.

So what can the Cotswolds offer the prospective house buyer in practical terms.

  • Low crime rate
  • Stable house prices
  • High quality of life
  • Peace and quiet always close bye
  • Country House style friendly hotels and restaurants
  • Magnificent countryside and walking
  • Period stone dwellings or more modern on the outskirts
  • Often within 30 minutes of supermarket and shopping
  • Frequently wonderful mix of people
  • Medical and Hospital services within easy distance
  • Easy access to main towns and cities, e.g. Cirencester, Gloucester, Worcester, Tewkesbury, Stratford-upon-Avon, Banbury, and Bath
  • Good traffic flow with little congestion, especially on the rural back roads

What you will not find:-

  • Fish and Chip shops are a rarity
  • Fast food outlets non-existent
  • Sub-urban sprawl
  • Advertising Bill Boards
  • No near bye motorways (the cotswolds is bounded by the M40 in the east, the M5 in the west, the M4 in the south. The M42 in the north is some 35 minutes away).
  • No eyesores
