The Central England/Cotswolds region
Tetbury is in the cotswold area of outstanding natural beauty and the landscape is a combination of rolling pasture land famous for its dry stone walls. The walls and roofs of barns and cottages have always been built with the local stone and, as a result, seem to grow out of the land.
There are stately homes to visit like Chavenage as well as pretty villages with rows of stone cottages like those in Minchinhampton, Easton grey or Tetbury's Chipping Steps. The famous Cotswold Way, a 5 day walking trail that passes within 7 miles of Tetbury, is quite stunning with its views over sheep- grazed valleys into villages like Uley and Horsley and eventually into the wonderful crescents and terraces of the Georgian city of Bath.
Beautiful buildings and farmland combine easily around these two 2 market towns which are less than 10 minutes from Doughton. 40 minutes away is either Bath, Bristol, or Cheltenham. Each very popular for shopping ,sight -seeing,concerts and theatre, but each also has something unique: Cheltenham, its famous racing festival in March, Bristol, the SS Great Britain and wonderful children's museums (@Bristol) and Bath, the newly refurbished Roman Baths and tea rooms made famous by Jane Austen's novels.
The National Arboretum at Westonbirt [3 mins drive] is a wonderful place to spend the day in every season of the year.
Visit the Abbey Gardens in Malmesbury, wonderful in late summer and autumn and the Badminton International Horse Trials[10 minutes drive] are held in the grounds of the Duke of Beaufort's well- run country estate, in May.
