The Cotswolds boasts some of the finest villages in the country with gorgeous village houses overlooking the greens, quintessential cottages along peaceful village lanes and country walks on the doorstep. Here are a few of our favourite village houses - the perfect family home, the ideal weekend bolt hole and the project you've always dreamt of taking on.
Church House is a stunning family home nestled along a quiet village lane in Sapperton. Designed by the architects Verity and Beverly of Tetbury to a traditional Cotswold style, incorporating the design features of the arts and craft era, Church House is a fine example of elegance and comfort in a Cotswold home. Providing excellent living space in a beautiful setting, this village house is superbly located in the heart of the village, yet only a few minutes drive from the vibrant market town of Cirencester.
Sapperton is home to a fantastic gastro pub, The Bell at Sapperton, where the food is delicious and the vibes are friendly and welcoming. Sapperton Church of England Primary School welcomes local children and the village hall just up the road is ideal for hosting community gatherings.

Cirencester, just a few miles away offers a variety of superb boutiques such as Encore for exceptional second hand designer clothes. Why not stop off for a bite to eat at renowned Made by Bob in the Corn Hall? You won't be dissappointed.

Superbly situated, East Barn is a superb village house within close proximity to Kemble and its direct train service to London Paddington, making it ideal for London commutes or as a weekend bolt hole when needing to escape the big smoke. Located down a quiet no through road in the village, this is a comfortable home with charm, character and bright and light rooms throughout.
Tarlton is a pretty Cotswold village surrounded by stunning countryside with fabulous walks on the doorstep. Tetbury with its antique shops, Highgrove shop and lovely cafes is a short drive away, and Westonbirt Arboretum a few miles on is a feast for the eyes throughout the seasons.
Pippins is the perfect example of an excellent project house in the heart of a fine village with views to die for! The house is a superb and spacious dwelling with planning permission which has been granted to transform the exterior of the house and greatly extend and modify the layout of the living space. Situated in middle Chedworth, the views are exceptional, overlooking the valley beyond. The garden is spacious and ideal for kicking around a football or indulging those green fingers!
Chedworth is a thriving Cotswold village with a vibrant community. The village is home to the reputable and high performing St Andrews Church Of England Primary School, and just up the road Chedworth Pre School, a recently renovated gastro pub, The Seven Tuns, which is rapidly growing a superb reputation for excellent dining, and a local farm shop, The Chedworth Farm Shop, which comes in handy for stocking up on wonderful local produce.
Ideally located, Cheltenham is only a short drive away and offers a wealth of culture.
