Cirencester is the nearest town just 7miles away which has a wealth of coffee shops and cafes, as well as some high street chains.
If you're searching for something more, Pennyroyal is only 45 minutes from Bristol and Cheltenham, which both have cool bars and clubs, through to high street chains and independent boutique shops.
