Somerford Keynes: Stunning Cotswolds Views (2023)

Somerford Keynes

A picturesque Cotswold village, Somerford Keynes is encircled by the stunning Lower Mill Estate and connected by nature trails.

Boasting seven lakes, rivers (including the Thames), hundreds of acres of unspoilt wildflower meadows, woodland, and wildlife – it has been sensitively managed by Lower Mill to preserve its natural splendour.

All Saints Parish Church on Main Street dates back to 685 and features Anglo-Saxon foundations dating from about 685, as well as a doorway from the 7th century and boasts an impressive 1654 tomb of Robert Strange, Lord of Somerford Keynes.

Alternatively, venture off the beaten path and walk along the Thames Path National Trail which runs through the village and leads you back to Kemble’s source of the river.
