The plot equates to a total of 1.5 acres which includes beautiful walled gardens to the front and rear - they have certainly been a real passion for the owners and it’s clear that a great deal of time and effort has gone into creating such well-established spaces.

Poulton is a vibrant village, set in the Cotswolds, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It has a beautiful 19th Century Church, a traditional Village Hall and it is also home to the popular gastro pub, The Falcon, which serves some of the best food in the area.
Historically it was predominately an agricultural community, which over the past century has seen many changes, yet remains an active and sociable place to live. Regular events are held in the Village Hall, such as Toddlers’ Group, Pilates, yoga, art classes, and a film club called the ‘One and Nines’. The Women’s Institute meet regularly and there is a monthly “Books and Biccies” session, held on the first Saturday of each month.
The village is lucky to have retained a recreation ground and a playing field called ‘Englands’ where village cricket and football is played, and a traditional summer fete is held each year on the first Sunday after the August Bank Holiday.
Cirencester, known as the Capital of the Cotswolds, is only 5 miles to the west and is a lovely market town with a fascinating history. In Roman times, Cirencester, known as ‘Corinium Dobunnorum’, was the second largest town only to London. The town became a very prosperous wool town in the medieval period, which is the basis for the charming town with ancient honey coloured stone buildings in picturesque narrow streets.
The Market Place is the heart of the town and is home to a Charter Market (every Monday and Friday) and a Farmers’ Market (every 2nd and 4th Saturday of the month).
The wonderful variety of quality independent shops makes shopping in Cirencester a delight.
