A recent feature in the Guardian newspaper goes a long way to explain why we feel Tetbury is a great place not only to visit but also to live.
“What’s going for it? As a vision of Britain, Tetbury is terribly seductive. I could fall for Tetbury. We could all fall for Tetbury. A town like they used to make them. A town untroubled much by the travails of modern life, like suburbs. A town seemingly composed entirely of the kind of picturesque, biscuit/fudge-coloured Cotswold buildings you see on biscuit tins and fudge packets. A town seemingly without troublesome poor people: Tetbury has been rich since the 15th-century wool trade. A town of antiques shops, boutique B&Bs and purveyors of chutneys and biccies: with cheese shops, butchers, bakers – is that a candlestick maker? ….. Yes, that’s Prince Charles’s shop, the Highgrove deli, over there. HRH Charlie is lord of the manor, though, alas, rarely on the tills at the shop. Some say Tetbury inspired Poundbury: both seem to exist in some kind of lovely la-la land”.
