  Things to Enjoy in Tetbury


If ever you find a more delightful walking town than Tetbury, then the next pint is on me! Just steps from  our 1/10 share fractional, The Clockworks, you find a plethora of shops, pub, churches, parks, antique shops and my favorite, walking lanes.  Enjoy "the street where we live"!

 St. Mary's Church
St. Mary's historic graveyard



The current church dates from 1781 and was designed by Francis Hiorn of Warwick. It is one of the earliest and best examples of Georgian Gothic churches in the country. The tower houses a ring of 8 bells dating from 1722 and some 52 steps up the tower. It is also home to a carillon which strikes at 3 hourly intervals during the day.

Magic in Tetbury

I hope that you've had the good fortune to experience a time in your life when everything turned up "rosy". Such was my story while in Tetbury, working hard, working smart, but letting the magic of the day dictate our moves. Here is a sampling of "My Tetbury Townhouse", The Clockworks LLC. Come join us, why don't you?

"This heart of mine was made to travel the world."

"For my part, I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel's sake. The great affair is to move." - Robert Louis Stevenson

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." - Mark Twain

Impressions of a new Cotswold owner
Lisa E.       6/22/2014

"I'll never forget my first approach to Tetbury. Getting comfortable driving on the other side of a winding country road, shifting with my left hand, I was anxious to reach the town before evening. The sun was setting, the sky was pink, and against that colorful backdrop: the dark spire of St Mary's Church in the distance! Almost there!
Clockworks- one block to the right

"What a joy to begin discovering the town: small enough to be immediately welcoming, large enough to offer more shops and restaurants than we were able to enjoy in a short visit. Dairy goodness at The House of Cheese, a wine bar and shop near The Chipping Steps, local honey and preserves at Highgrove Shop. The weekly Wednesday market from an outdoor patio at The Snooty Fox.
Royal Oak Pub- 5 minute walk down Chipping Street
Bunnies frolicking on the hillside during a picnic at Preston Park. Beautiful gardens and flowers abound. Had to take it easy this trip but look forward to walking many public footpaths. Did revel in the old and young trees at Westonbirt Arboretum, just a few kilometers south. My husband will be spoilt for choice in golf courses.

"Tetbury's royal connections can take you by surprise. HRH Prince Charles has a country home nearby. Camilla planted a Wedding Cake Tree in the church yard, commemorating the marriage of William and Kate. While shopping in a clothing store, I overheard the owner say to a patron: Oh, the Duchess of Cambridge wore that recently to (such-and-such an event)...

"We were thrilled to be able to walk through the townhouse on Church Street one afternoon. A master craftsman spent the last year renovating and his fine work is in evidence everywhere. We enjoyed the sun-filled rooms through west-facing windows - but it occurred to me the morning light strikes the kitchen. The old beams are reminders of a building that probably dates to the 17th century and the modern details contrast perfectly.
 Then there's something about the place I find difficult to express; it just feels good. The layout is smart, the colors are well-chosen, the proportions work. Then you step outside and you're in the heart of Tetbury. Perfect!"
