CLOSE TO HOME:

The farmhouse is situated amidst the open farmland of the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) approximately 3 miles to the south east of Cirencester on the northern edge of the Cotswold Water Park.

The nearest settlement is Driffield village, itself was first cited in the Doomsday Book of 1086 and in almost 1,000 years since, the village has only doubled in size. Still surrounded by miles of working land farmed by the residents, and without shop or pub, it has retained a tranquillity and friendly sense of Cotswold community seldom found anywhere in England nowadays.

The nearest main settlement is Cirencester, a beautiful market town (often referred to as the Capital of the Cotswolds) and with a deep routed history dating all the way back to the Romans when in 200AD it was recorded as the largest settlement in the country outside of London. With Cheltenham and Swindon both close at hand for commuting, Cirencester has remained a popular town with its excellent range of shops, galleries, bars and restaurants.

There are Waitrose, M&S Food, Tesco, Aldi and Lidl supermarkets along with a good selection of smaller convenience stores where you can pick up everything you need. A number of craft markets and antique fairs take place throughout the year as well as a weekly street market and regular farmers market.

Social and sports activities are plentiful in the town and surrounding area with many active clubs and societies. The Cotswold leisure centre offers plenty of sporting facilities and opportunities with two swimming pools, a gym and a sports hall. The gym offers the latest fitness equipment whilst the sports hall has six courts for a range of sports including badminton, five-a-side football and basketball.

Within a short drive or cycle ride is the Cotswold Water Park with its many water-based sport and leisure activities as well as a large number of equestrian opportunities and nature walks. Closer to home there is also the beautiful Abbey Grounds and Cirencester Park, a natural expanse of tranquillity just a short walk from the bustling Cirencester town centre.

This rich tapestry of typically English countryside is part of Britain's largest designated area of outstanding natural beauty, with a spectacular landscape laced with a labyrinth of walkways, bridle paths and hidden treasures, perfect for gentle weekend rambles and fabulous days of exploring for the whole family.

Cirencester and the surrounding villages offer very good state schooling opportunities for children of all ages, from reception to completing 'A' levels. There is also an excellent selection of independent schools in the surrounding area including Rendcomb College, Hatherop Castle Preparatory School, The Kings School Gloucester as well as Westonbirt and Beaudesert Park Schools, not forgetting the well-regarded Pates Grammar school and Ladies' College in Cheltenham.

For those interested in country pursuits the general area provides many lovely walks and excellent riding country, hunting with the VWH and Beaufort Hounds, Polo at Cirencester Park, National Hunt racing at Cheltenham, Newbury and Bath.

Additional sporting venues include Premiership rugby at Bath, Bristol and Gloucester, first class cricket at Bristol and the annual Cheltenham cricket festival is held in July. There is golf at nearby South Cerney or further afield at Cirencester Golf Club, Shrivenham or Minchinhampton Clubs.

The nearest regional centres are Swindon and Cheltenham although Bath, Bristol, Gloucester and Oxford are also within daily commuting distance. Kemble Station (London Paddington 55 minutes approx.) is about 8 miles distant and the property is conveniently located for the A417 for dual carriageway access to the M5 at Gloucester or the M4 at Swindon.
