Aldsworth is a vibrant village, set in the beautiful Cotswold countryside. It has the attractive St Bartholomew’s Church, a traditional Village Hall and is home to the gastro pub, The Sherborn Arms, which has been in the village since 1799. Only 6.5 miles to the east, Burford’s famous High Street sweeps downhill towards the River Windrush, its medieval bridge and its impressive church, both sides of the street flanked by an unbroken line of historic houses and shops. Little has changed over the centuries. Burford is popular with visitors, both for its beauty and history but also for its shopping and wide variety of places to eat, with a number of restaurants, pubs and teashops.
Cirencester, known as the Capital of the Cotswolds, is only 11 miles to the west and is a lovely market town with a fascinating history. In Roman times, Cirencester, known as ‘Corinium Dobunnorum’, was the second largest town only to London. The town became a very prosperous wool town in the medieval period, which is the basis for the charming town with ancient honey coloured stone buildings in picturesque narrow streets.
The Market Place is the heart of the town and is home to a Charter Market (every Monday and Friday) and a Farmers’ Market (every 2nd and 4th Saturday of the month).
The wonderful variety of quality independent shops makes shopping in Cirencester a delight. Enjoy exploring the courtyards with their individual style, and the many historic streets radiating from the town centre. Cirencester is renowned for its very special shops, individual boutiques, fascinating antique emporiums and craft shops as well as national chain stores. For more comprehensive shopping and recreational needs. Aldsworth is equidistant between Cheltenham and Oxford, both offering extensive shopping, dining options, pubs and facilities.
There are a number of state and private schools in the area, with schools in Burford, Bourton-on-the-Water, Kingham and Cokethorpe, along with the Oxford schools including the Dragon School, Magdalen College School and St. Edwards School. There are a host of others nearby including St Hughes Prep School, Hatherop Castle School along with Cheltenham Ladies’ College, Cheltenham College and Dean Close in Cheltenham. Road communications are fantastic to the A40 which in turn provides access to the M40 to London, and the M5 to the west.

Flooded with natural light, thanks to the large glazed areas, The Warren offers space, height and light in abundance. A huge amount of character has been retained, yet the large reception rooms suit modern day living.
