Sheltered in the lee of a ring of wooded hills, the village contains an exceptional number of fine old properties built in the vernacular Cotswold style and echoing the fine architecture associated with nearby Painswick. The property offers English country living at its finest, surrounded by glorious Cotswold countryside, rolling hills, handsome period homes and pretty historic English churches.

Pitchcombe has a welcoming community and hosts numerous local events, including an annual fete. The Edgemoor Inn in the neighbouring village of Edge, is within easy walking distance. Nearby Painswick is within a five minute drive or on foot across a network of footpaths. With several thriving cafes, a boutique hotel and village shop, Painswick is a great weekend walking destination for a coffee and catch up with friends. Painswick Beacon also hosts a popular golf course and the Rococo Gardens are well worth a visit. Stroud is less than ten minutes drive away and is well-known across the Cotswolds as an artistic hub with a unique bohemian vibe and was voted the ‘best place to live’ by the Sunday Times. Stroud has several leading supermarkets, including Waitrose, as well as sporting facilities, independent retailers and an award winning Saturday Farmers Market. Cheltenham is also within a 20 minute drive and offers excellent shopping, restaurants and theatre, as well as numerous music and arts festivals and racing at its the renowned National Hunt racecourse.

One of the key draws to the area is the excellent choice of schools in both the state and private sector with sought after grammar schools in Stroud, Gloucester and Cheltenham and a broad choice of schools in the private sector.
