Located in the centre of town, this beautiful parish church is known for its Gothic perpendicular architecture and stained glass from the 1300s.

-Family attractions: Visit New Brewery Arts for arts, crafts, exhibits, and music. Watch working artists and craftsmen in their studios, and browse impressive and unique wares. There are also various workshops held year-round, which are particularly good fun for families with kids staying in holiday homes in Cirencester. Stop for a bite in the on-site café afterwards.

-Nature: The Cotswold Water Park is a massive 150 acres of man-made lakes including an inland beach. Cool off in the Cotswold Country Park and Beach under lifeguard supervision, or wander the nature reserves for bats, beavers, dragonflies, water voles and bird watching. There are also activities to enjoy, from aerial adventures to rally driving!

-Outdoor activities: Cirencester Park sprawls over 3,000 acres and is free to enter. It is the seat of the Bathurst family, and their massive estate sports the tallest English yew hedge in Britain, which is thought to have been planted around the year 1710. Dogs are allowed and are only required to be leashed at the entrance.

-Historical attractions Cirencester's Roman Amphitheatre is one of the best preserved in Britain, though it remains only partially excavated. It is about 150 by 135 feet and is estimated to date back to the 2nd century. This site speaks to the important role Cirencester played as an early Roman area.

THE ANIMALS WERE A DELIGHT TO BE WITH AND HELEN AND MARTIN WERE ALWAYS ON HAND IF NEEDED. THE ONLY DRAWBACK WE FOUND WERE THE SLOPING CEILINGS UPSTAIRS ESPECIALLY IF YOU HAD TO GET UP DURING THE NIGHT AND WE ALL MANAGED TO BUMP OUR HEADS AT SOME PERIOD WHILST IN SITU BUT NOTHING SERIOUS! THE PROPERTY WAS VERY WELL PRESENTED AND VERY CLEAN AND TIDY. HOPEFULLY WE MAY BE ABLE TO RETURN IN THE NOT TOO DISTANT FUTURE.

It was very clean on arrival and the owner was readily available if we needed any help (which we didn't, in fact). Lots to do in this beautiful part of the country. We particularly liked the food at The Falcon Inn in nearby Poulton.
