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

-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.

It was for a friends and family gathering and it was a perfect location, easy for all to get to. I could not have improved our stay in anyway, although I wish we could have stayed longer as there was lots to do!! I think for my next visit I would perhaps go for one of the properties with a hot tub, and it would be great to have the large decking on the same floor as the lounge. I will definitely be back!!

The owners made sure that we had a great stay with a full liat of activities in the area of which there are countless. The cottage is in a beautiful closed area of houses with many amenities such as a tennis court, cycle hire and swimming pool. Had a great time and hope to be back!

We found the location to be peaceful with lakeside access (although the jetty had clearly not been used, and was overgrown). however, the house itself was clean and 'homely' in that, whilst very well presented, was not pristine, in that it had been used. This made it more welcoming. Well equipped and with easy access, the only difficulty we found was, as we arrived at nearly midnight, the lack of any form of lighting on the road made it difficult to find the parking spot, and then unload the car. However, the external light of the property had thoughtfully been left switched on, which helped us to find it. All in all, excellent value, and a wonderful spot for a canoe/kayaker to locate and enjoy the very quiet water. Not very many resources on site, however; shop closed and the cafe was very slow with its service - but the swimming pool and playground were very good.
