Lewsey Court enjoys an idyllic location in Tetbury. This Gloucestershire gem, which lies upon an ancient fort, keeps company with some of the Cotswolds’ finest towns, including Cirencester and Bath. Surrounded by some of the most beautiful scenery in the country, and with the excitement and charm of a traditional English market town, Tetbury couldn’t be better suited to an independent, active retirement lifestyle.
The town itself wouldn’t look out of place on a postcard or biscuit tin. Many of its traditional Cotswold buildings remain unchanged from their original splendour 300 years ago, and it’s impossible to turn a corner without being greeted by beautiful flower arrangements. It’s no surprise that Tetbury has won the Heart of England in Bloom award five times!
When it’s time to go shopping, Tetbury doesn’t disappoint. Its streets are lined with a range of delightful stores, including butchers, bakers, and of course its infamous antique shops. Most of Tetbury’s businesses are independently owned, and you’re sure to enjoy a pleasant and personable shopping experience. Tetbury residents also enjoy a calendar that you’d expect from a close-knit community; notable events include Woolsack Day, the Tetbury Fiesta and the Tetbury Music Festival.
The market town features a good range of eateries, including tea shops, cafes, gastropubs and fine dining restaurants. There are also plenty of landmarks worth a visit, including its impressive Market House and striking Gothic church. If you want to travel further afield, Tetbury’s regular bus services will transport you to local towns. There is also a train station nearby in Kemble, and drivers will be pleased with the easy access to and from the M4 and M5 motorways.
