Cirencester

Cirencester in Gloucestershire is a large town with a striking mix of architecture combining a lot of Cotswold stone with colourful rendered buildings and Tudor designs.

Just minutes from the town is Cirencester Park, a green space for picnics and outdoor fun. Corinium Museum and the Abbey Grounds give a glimpse of Cirencester as it was before the arrival of modern life. Our Cirencester cottages place you close to the town of Cirencester and the wonderful attractions nearby such as the Cotswold Wildlife Park and Cotswold Water Park.

Cirencester Park

Cirencester was actually the second largest town in Britain during Roman times. Those interested in the history of the area may wish to visit the Corinium Museum which has an extensive range of Roman artefacts and collections from the region that have been kept in pristine condition throughout the years and tell the story of this brilliant town’s past.

If you’re interested in local craft and talent then you’re bound to enjoy the markets that take place here throughout the week. With regular antiques, street and cattle markets you can be sure that you’ll find something that will excite and offer a brilliant gift to take home by which you can remember your holiday.

For a brilliantly relaxing day out then you should be sure to visit Cirencester Park. This amazing 3000 acre garden is an ideal place to enjoy the true beauty of the countryside. The gardens, which are maintained excellently throughout the year, offer a wealth of places to sit and take in the natural beauty of the Cotswolds.

The town’s church of St John the Baptist is well known for the interesting architecture that includes a perpendicular porch, fan vaults and merchants tombs. As you wander through this brilliant structure you will really get an idea of the painstaking effort that has gone in to creating one of the most brilliant structures in this part of the world. Whilst incorporating slightly newer architecture, Cirencester is also home to the Royal Agricultural College which has a rich history in the area.
