Explore a part of England that's packed with nature and wildlife

From stately gardens and landscaped parks to nearly 800 square miles of Outstanding Natural Beauty on your doorstep, it's no wonder that so many people are choosing a retirement property in Stroud.

You can hike through the remains of an 18th century landscape in the secluded wooded valley of Woodchester Park, spot wildlife as you follow the Stroudwater Canal, or see over 200 different species of bird at the Slimbridge Wetland Centre on the bank of the River Severn.

Retire to an area that's rich with history

Whether you're looking for ancient barrows or industrial heritage, there's plenty of fascinating history to uncover around Stroud.

You can see an unfinished Gothic-revival house at Woodchester Mansion, visit the 19th century railway station that was designed by Isambard Brunel, one of the greatest engineers of the Industrial Revolution, or explore an Iron Age hill fort that dates back to 300 BC at Uley Bury, with immense views over the Severn Vale. 

You'll find more than 4,000 historical artefacts on display at the Museum in the Park, Roman archaeology at the Corinium Museum in Cirencester, and an extensive collection of aircraft and engines at the Jet Age Museum, near Gloucester.

Testimonial image

As if moving into my beautiful new apartment wasn’t enough, everything that led up to the move was handled by McCarthy & Stone. I couldn’t believe how easy it all turned out to be; I was left with just two boxes to unpack which suited me and Meira just fine.

Make the most of a well-connected town with a thriving community

With a dedicated arts scene, a calendar full of festivals and events, and with Gloucester and Cheltenham just a short trip away, there's plenty to keep you busy around Stroud.

You can see local performers at The Convent Live Lounge, watch visual arts and music at the Stroud Fringe Festival, or admire the work of nearly 500 artists at the Stroud Valleys Arts Festival.
