About our home
Our home is a relatively modest Edwardian 'cottage', we have three double bedrooms, two with king sized beds and the third with twin beds, a large family bathroom and downstairs loo, together with a separate laundry area. There's a formal dining room that comfortably seats about 6 and a modern eat-in kitchen which seats 4.
We have an adult sitting room with bay window and open fire and a garden room with open plan office for home working, which in turn opens out onto a large patio, with a dining space for 6.
Our garden is relatively mature and has a trampoline and a double swing set and slide (definitely for children and obviously if you are bringing children you need to watch them). The garden is enclosed by a low Cotswold stone wall and has an elderly beech hedge, lilacs and conifers. We have a friendly German family living next door and quiet neighbours on the other side, it's residential, very peaceful.
Our house is located about a quarter of a mile from Tetbury town centre, which has a large Tesco supermarket/petrol station and all sorts of antique shops and art galleries. There are some excellent ladies clothes shops, together with 'the Tetbury Tailor' if you feel the need to shop locally. Within an hour’s drive is Cribbs Causeway, Bristol one of the UKs largest out of town shopping centres where you can buy just about anything.
Churches - In Tetbury we have two beautiful Anglican churches and a tiny catholic church in the centre of town where Fr Izzy Obe is our local priest. Cirencester has further churches and a Quaker Meeting room.
Locally there are great restaurants, and I would recommend Whatney Manor (truly excellent dining - www.whatneymanor.com) and The Chef's Table (fantastic food if you want to stagger home and no bother with a cab). There are lots of other places for more everyday eating, I especially recommend The Priory Inn, which sources all its produce within a 30 mile radius.
If you love gardening and nature Westonbirt Arboretum is about 4 miles away, which is has a stunning collection of trees. Highgrove House and gardens are located between Tetbury and Westonbirt and again they have walking tours of Prince Charles' gardens, and a tea room and shop is open to the public that tour the garden. It’s really worth booking but is only open at certain times of the year and tickets must be purchased via the internet or at the Highgrove shop in Tetbury - very special if you book the champagne tea, but you need to take your ID with you to get past the police guard.
Tetbury is a small but well known town in the heart of the Cotswolds, it's close to Cirencester and we are a 45 minute drive from downtown Bath, Bristol, and Cheltenham. 10 minutes to Kemble rail station and you are in London in 1hr 20 mins.
