The local area guide to living in Tetbury

Located in the Gloucestershire Cotswold region, the village of Tetbury has graced the countryside for over 1,300 years, when a Royal Charter first mentioned the area. A centre of the Cotswold wool trade since medieval times, the town is an architectural jewel of the region. The town centre is framed by the pillared ‘Market House’, built in 1655, and many of the old wool houses have remained in the same state for nearly 300 years.

Famous as much for its antique shops as its charming decor, with over two dozen purveyors of ancient goods, the town also plays host to its annual woolsack races. Voted the country’s ‘Best Small Town’ for several years running, the town is one of the most truly charming locations in the UK.

The nearby ‘Trouble House’ sits at the site of a former train station, the only station ever built with the express purpose of serving a pub. The Tetbury police museum currently hosts the world’s largest collection of restraint equipment as well as a preserved Victorian courtroom and cells.

Several castles and manors surround the area, many of them with gardens open to the public. In particular, Owlpen Manor is of national fame, due both to its Tudor era architecture and its rumours of being the most haunted house in all of Western England. Beverston Castle, first built in 1229, is also a popular destination. Partially occupied, the castle has some of the finest gardens imaginable, in a region already bursting with wildlife and picturesque settings.

Information about the local residents

Tetbury’s most famous resident, HRH Prince Charles, lives in Highgrove House, just on the outskirts of the town. Its gardens are open to the public and extremely popular in the summer and spring months.

Many residents own and operate small businesses, with bric-a-brac and antique stores particularly prevalent. In keeping with its history, much of Tetbury’s surrounding land is used for grazing and farming, with the town continuing its role within wool production even today..

Nearby schools

Tetbury hosts two local schools, St. Mary’s Primary School and Sir William Romney’s secondary school. However, following a recent decision to no longer offer sixth form, many students now travel to nearby Stroud for their education.

Grammar schools Marling School for Boys and Stroud High School for Girls are both within a twenty-minute drive though nearby Cirencester’s ‘Deer Park School Comprehensive’ lies closer. Filton College, located in Bristol, is popular with some families, serving students seeking A-Levels, many of whom go onto higher educational study in the area.

Getting around

Bus routes link the village with other settlements in the area and while the train lines were shut down in the ‘60s, the bus links are comprehensive enough to ensure easy access to the surrounding area. Today, its closest station lies in Kemble, just 7 km away.

Tetbury also sits on A433, with easy access to both the M4 and the M5. The A4135 originates in the town, continuing onwards all the way to Beverston. The closest airport lies an hour away, situated in Bristol. Numerous paths and hiking routes exist in the countryside surrounding Tetbury, making walking from village to village a simple affair.

Local shops

Beyond the numerous antique shops, Tetbury has many stores selling local wares and produce. HRH Prince Charles launched his flagship store for his Highgrove Shop chain, selling goods and produce sourced from his nearby estate.

Several specialist stores exist stocking a variety of wares from jewellery to award winning cheeses and the ever popular Tetbury Sweets and Treats. Locally created pottery is also quite popular, with Hookshouse pottery offering traditional English gardening and pottery to purchase, or simply to browse via a display.

A branch of auction house Bonhams takes up residence in the town, offering regular valuation days and specialist sales at all times of the year. A small private hospital is in the town, with a dedicated minor injury unit serving the local area.
