Love letter to Winchcombe

Dear Winchcombe

We love you! In fact we love everything about Winchcombe! Nestled in the heart of the Cotswolds, Winchcombe is charm personified, a gorgeous market town of early medieval origin that certainly deserves its status as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

It started out as a Roman hamlet and we love it still retains much of its medieval layout with a mix of timber framed buildings that sit alongside those made of Cotswold limestone.

We also love the quirky side to its history. For example did you know, during the 1600s, the town was noted for cattle rustling and other lawlessness attributed in part to poverty.

There are plenty of other reasons to fall in love with Winchcombe, not least the fabulous Grade 2 listed Sudeley Castle and its beautiful gardens, the steam valley railway and the town’s diverse and thriving selection of shops and businesses, many of which are independent and include cafes, beauty salons and restaurants.

And with its stunning location, great sense of community and variety of architectural styles it’s little wonder Winchcombe is one of the most desirable places to live in the Cotswolds. If you want a chocolate box thatched cottage, this is the place to come! However, whatever style of home you choose though, you will love living here. There’s fresh air, gorgeous countryside on the doorstep, good road connections and peace and quiet away from the hustle and bustle of city life.

We think once you arrive, you will fall in love with Winchcombe so much you won’t want to leave!
