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. 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 and doctors’ and dentists' surgeries whilst the surrounding towns provide a good range of amenities to suit all tastes and budgets including the award winning Farmers Market in Stroud. Painswick has a playgroup and primary school with many secondary schools (including grammar schools) being available in the surrounding towns of Stroud, Gloucester, Cheltenham and Cirencester. Cheltenham is the main regional centre offering a comprehensive range of social, recreational and retail amenities in addition to festivals throughout the year embracing topics ranging from racing to literature and music to science. Recreational opportunities include tennis, rugby and bowls clubs with many other groups including badminton, table tennis and pilates meeting at the Painswick Centre. In the wider area, events include polo at Edgeworth, racing at Prestbury Park and sailing at the Cotswold Water Park, together with shooting and fishing on local estates and golf at Gloucester and Painswick Golf Clubs.
