The ancient market town of Minchinhampton is located on a hilltop in beautiful Gloucestershire countryside and offers a wide range of amenities including a weekly market still held in the magnificent 17th century Market House. This vibrant town boasts a range of individual shops, an antiques shop, a traditional pub, restaurants and cafes, making it perfect for an afternoon stroll in a beautiful setting. Surrounding the town is Minchinhampton Common, which is managed by the National Trust and covers over 500 acres. Nearby, a visit to the historic Winstone's Ice Cream Factory, the award-winning Farmers' Market in Stroud and the Fairtrade town of Nailsworth with its art galleries, individual shops and spring music and art festivals is a must. The waterfront city of Gloucester, with its Victorian docklands, is close by and the town of Cirencester - the 'Gateway to the Cotswolds' - offers ancient buildings and museums. The beautiful spa town of Cheltenham is an easy drive away, offering Georgian architecture and many festivals including the Gold Cup horse race, while Tetbury, Gatcombe and Badminton are also close by. A great holiday destination all year round.
