Brimpsfield: A Village With Traditional Cotswolds Charm (2023)

Brimpsfield lies above the Cotswolds (designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in 1966) and 10 kilometers south of Cheltenham, Cranham to the north, and Birdlip village to the east.

Today, there are several small houses, some of which date back centuries, as well as an excellent pub.

St. Michael’s Church is another listed building of architectural and historic interest, rebuilt in 1897 from its original medieval tombstones – likely those belonging to members of the Giffard family.

Some remnants of the castle can still be seen in the fabric of the church, on the stone shed to its left, and in the meadow immediately before it.

Other notable buildings include Brimpsfield House, a 17th-century farmhouse that served as the former farmhouse of a freehold estate before becoming a private residence and features a medieval chimney breast on the east gable and stone chevrons in the wall on the west gable.

From Heathrow Airport, it takes around 1. 5 hours to drive to Brimpsfield.

The Cotswolds is a region that’s perfect for a romantic driving holiday, with its picturesque villages and stunning landscapes providing the perfect backdrop for a romantic getaway.

You can take a leisurely drive through the countryside, stop off at cozy pubs and cafes, and enjoy a truly special experience with your partner.

Other places to visit include Compton Abdale, Bagendon, Daglingworth and Ampney Crucis.
