Painswick, the “Queen of the Cotswolds”, is a thriving community nestling in a delightful Cotswolds setting. Constructed of mellow locally quarried stone, the town has many beautiful buildings dating back as far as the 14th Century. The Painswick Churchyard is famous for its impressive array of table tombs and its 99 yew trees about which folklore holds that if a 100th should grow the devil will pull it out.
There are several local shops, galleries, tearooms and restaurants in the village along with a pharmacy, doctors’ surgery and dentists whilst the surrounding towns provide a good range of social, recreational and retail amenities to suit all tastes and budgets.
The village offers The Croft Primary School and The Painswick Playgroup. Education options in the wider area are particularly strong in both the private and state sectors with independent schools including Kings School, Wycliffe College, Cheltenham College, Cheltenham Ladies College and Dean Close whilst there are Grammar schools in Stroud, Gloucester and Cheltenham.
Recreational opportunities in the village include tennis, rugby and bowls clubs with many other groups including badminton and amateur dramatics meeting at the Painswick Centre. In the wider area, events include polo at Edgeworth and Cirencester Park, racing at Prestbury Park, eventing at Gatcombe and sailing at the Cotswold Water Park, together with shooting and fishing on local estates and golf at Gloucester and Painswick Golf Clubs.
