The Central England/Cotswolds region

Minchinhampton is one of the Cotswold's treasures - a beautiful Gloucestershire Market Town situated on a hill top, 4 miles east of Stroud. We are lucky enough to have the most incredible period architecture and history, picturesque walks, stunning scenery, wide ranging sporting activities and many local amenities. The heart of Minchinhampton is almost unaltered with its narrow streets and cottages of mellow Cotswold stone. It is ideally located in the Cotswolds with Bath and Cheltenham easily accessible.

Minchinhampton

Recorded as 'Hampton' in the Domesday Book, it was given by King Harold to William the Conqueror. The town gained a market from 1269, during the Middle Ages it became a centre for sheep farming and the wool and cloth trades predominated. The expansion of the town occurred during the 17th century when many fine buildings were constructed including the handsome Crown Hotel and the Old Post Office which is a genuine Queen Anne building.

The Market House is a seventeenth century stone building, set on pillars and it is a fine example of its type. On Thursday mornings there is a bustling Country Market, where local fruit and vegetables, local produce and homemade preserves, cakes and savouries can be purchased.

Minchinhampton is surrounded by some of the most beautiful common land in the country where horses and cattle roam freely. The National Trust bought Minchinhampton Common before the second world war which together with Rodborough Common makes up nearly 1000 acres of high open grassland and woods which are host to a diverse range of flowers, some unique to this limestone upland. The Common is pockmarked with a variety of earthworks from Neolithic barrows and old quarries to modern day golf bunkers. Evidence of pre-Roman settlement can also be seen.

The Holy Trinity Church dates from the 12th century and is cruciform, with a central tower topped by a truncated spire with a 16th century coronet. The transept is 14th century and the church spire can be seen for miles. The church is a stunning grade 1 listed building which is lit at night to highlight its spire and historic architecture.

The town itself has a selection of shops, a library, chemist, a doctors surgery, primary school and two golf courses. There are several cafés, restaurants, local pubs to cater for a variety of tastes.

Stroud

Photos of the beautiful surrounding Cotswold area will be added in due course.

We recommend the award-winning Stroud Farmers Market, walking the Cotswold Way, browsing the antique shops in Tetbury, as well as visiting the Corinium Museum in Cirencester, Rococo Gardens in Painswick, Gloucester Cathedral, Berkeley Castle and Woodchester Mansion.

Slimbridge Wildfowl Trust, Westonbirt Arboretum and Cotswold Wildlife Park are close by while the cultural centres of Bath, Bristol, Cirencester and Cheltenham are all within 40 minutes drive, as are the scenic Forest of Dean and Wye Valley.

Cotswold Water Park (manmade beach, sailing, kayaking and wake boarding) at South Cerney, Gloucester Ski Slopes (all year round artificial ski slopes) , Barton End Horse riding stables, Nailsworth and Rush Indoor Skate Park, Brimscombe.
