About the neighbourhood
Nestled just below Stow on the Wold, the village of Lower Swell has a vibrant community spirit. The village pub serves beer from the Donnington brewery based a mile up the road (worth a walk to for it's beautiful setting). Various buildings in the village and the gardens of Abbotswood House were designed by Edwin Lutyens. Naunton Downs golf course is approx 3 miles away and the area is home to several national hunt trainers with Cheltenham and Stratford racecourses a short car ride away. Maybe take in a play at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre. If retail therapy is more your style the surrounding Cotswold towns have a multitude of individual shops, Stow is renown amongst antique lovers and Cheltenham is famous for it's Promenade. Gloucester Quays Designer outlet is a short drive away... more
