Eastington is a thriving community, well served by village shops including family owned and managed long established Broomhalls butchers, a post office, a good English pub The Old Badger Inn, with fine dining at Kings Head House. The Eastington Farm Shop, newly featured and ethically minded, has café facilities and supports local farmers’ fresh produce and artisan products.
Eastington is highly desirable due to its superb location nestling between rolling Cotswold vistas, winding River Severn and redevelopment of Stroudwater canals. These and the River Frome provide a wealth of nature and historic interest with its many sites and walks to be explored whilst enjoying easy travel links. Junction 13 of the M5 is just one mile away. Stonehouse Railway station approx. (3 miles) has direct train links to London (Paddington). Cam railway station approx. (5 miles) has a direct line to Bristol (Parkway).
Living in Eastington we love the surrounding fields where we can walk the dog and take the children, with minimal hills and even a river close by where the dog can have a swim!
The village is perfect for the children, a fantastic local playgroup within walking distance and extremely good rated primary school. Everyone is so friendly, often having chats with the children when we are out and about. Everywhere is so accessible- the motorway for longer journeys, but also the neighbouring villages and of course close to Stonehouse and Stroud centre.
Our house is light, airy and spacious, offering that extra storage in each room, as well as the sheds, loft and garage! We didn't expect to become gardeners when we moved here, but the garden has taught us so much and we now seek out jobs just to be outside and enjoy the peace it offers us. The garden always has sun (when it graces the UK with its presence!) and the sunrise can be seen through our bedroom window in the morning, and setting over the back garden in the evening so that we can make the most of those sunny days. This house and village offer the complete package for a family who love to be outside and feel safe as part of a lovely community.
Please note that the owners need to find a new home and a quick sale will not be possible.
