Prospect Terrace, Painswick home swap
I live in the centre of this beautiful village. There are three restaurants, a seriously delicious coffee/cake shop, a delicatessen and a little Antique shop. There is an excellent Arts Centre and Gallery in the village with working artists.
My cottage is in the centre of this well known village and is in a row of four. It is simply furnished but comfortable. The sitting room has a good fire for chilly days and a door to the front with a small porch. It has a good sized kitchen with room to sit at the table. The bathroom is clean and tidy and the bedroom has a double bed of Queen size. . There is a garden with a place to sit out and enjoy the views across the valley. There is a TV and WiFi.
About the location
Painswick is near to many places of interest that are very popular. The Cotswolds, as this area is known, are lovely and there are many places to visit for History and the Arts. Oxford, Bath, Cheltenham and Bristol are all within easy distance. It is beautiful walking country and there are many, small villages and fascinating places to explore.
If you are a Laurie Lee fan then you will probably know that the Slad Valley where he lived is within a good walking distance or a very short drive to the 'Wool Pack' pub.
There are lots of events around the area; Theatre, Music, Festivals, Horse Racing and you have the chance to explore the many beautiful villages, historic houses and countryside.
The Romans lived around here a little time a go but I haven't seen any recently.
Princess Anne and Prince Charles live locally and there are lots of famous people around who choose to live here for its beauty and proximity to London. The area has long been connected to the artists who came to live and work here particularly those of the Arts and Crafts Movement who were influenced by William Morris in the period 1890 - 1930.
Bath, Oxford and London are within easy reach with good transport connections.
There are still many quiet places left to enjoy.
Painswick has a very famous churchyard. I hope you will come and find out why.
