Minchinhampton

Minchinhampton is a thriving small hilltop town on a tongue of high land between the 'Golden Valley' and the Nailsworth valley. Located in southern Gloucestershire 1.5 miles North East of Nailsworth.

Situated on the eastern fringes of Minchinhampton Common, high above the valleys once prosperous with the production of cloth, this is a very attractive small Cotswold town.

Centred on its High Street and old Market Square, the main features of which are the late 17th-century Market House supported on stone columns, the handsome Crown Hotel, and the Post Office, a genuine Queen Anne building.

The interesting church has a truncated spire looking over the Market Square but at the same time stands aloof from it. The church was given Caen's Abbaye aux Dames by William the Conqueror, and then in 1415 passed to Syon Abbey, in whose hands it remained until the Dissolution.

The present building dates from the 12th century and is full of interest. There are old cloth mills in the valleys to the south of Minchinhampton.

In Minchinhampton, there are three truly outstanding tests of golf set high on the rolling Cotswolds where the glorious scenery complements the quality of the golf experience. Can there be any better golfing destinations or clubs to belong to in the whole of the South West?

Minchinhampton Common itself is home to one of the earliest golf clubs in the West of England http://old.minchinhamptongolfclub.co.uk/ - 01453 832642.

There are also two 'new' courses, too, one of which (Cherington) was the venue for the Open qualifier for six years )

You'll find a warm welcome at the clubhouses, as well as excellent catering; there are exceptional practice facilities including a covered driving range, short game area, practice putting green and state of the art teaching and performance centres.

Cycling

Cyclists love the Cotswolds, with its beautiful views and winding lanes edged with drystone walls and abundance of wildlife. There are plenty of facilities with pretty village pubs and tearooms and a wide range of cycle routes to suit all ages and abilities.

Walking

There are numerous walks around the common and surrounding countryside.

One popular walk starts on the common, goes around the old market town, then a down-and-up through the village of Box. The last climb is steep, but there is a short cut.

Stroud

The Cotswolds is an expanse of gently sloping green hills and ancient, picturesque towns and villages in south-western and west-central England. It is a designated as an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the largest in the country, and its quintessentially English charm predominantly spans the counties of Gloucestershire and Oxfordshire, while also reaching into parts of Wiltshire, Somerset, Worcestershire and Warwickshire

The Cotswolds has the largest number of conservation areas of any English region. It stretches from the northern gateway of Broadway to the magnificent roman town and Georgian city of Bath on the southern fringes. The fringes of the region include Shakespeare's Stratford upon Avon, the king maker's castle of Warwick, the historic academia of Oxford, and Winston Churchill's childhood home, Blenheim Palace

Moving into the middle portion, some particularly special historic towns include Cirencester (the Roman capital of the Cotswolds), Tetbury, Painswick (often called Queen of the Cotswolds), Burford, Malmesbury, Woodstock (home of Blenheim Palace), Nailsworth, Minchinhampton, Bradford-on-Avon and Chippenham. Some tourist attractions of special note are Westonbirt Arboretum (near Tetbury), Woodchester Mansion, Kelmscot Manor, Malmesbury Abbey and Gardens, Owlpen Manor, and Prinknash Abbey and not forgetting the village of Bibury which was once described by William Morris as 'the most beautiful village in the Cotswolds'.

In the south part of the Cotswolds you'll find the World Heritage City of Bath and lovey, ancient, untouched villages like Lacock and Castle Combe

Not only is the Cotswolds home to unspoiled heritage communities dating back five to six hundred years, but the surrounding rolling countryside with its 3000 miles of public footpaths is steeped in prehistory too. It's an area rich in Neolithic remains, with about 80 long barrows, the remains of some 400 round barrows, and many Iron Age hill forts

The Cotswolds is one of the most treasured and visited destinations in the UK and indeed the world. Nowhere else will you find such timeless, unique and heart-warming preservation on such a scale. No doubt a reason it recently placed number two on a list of top ten paradise locations on earth
