1. High Street, Winchcombe, GL54

Currently serving as premises for the popular Old Bakery Café in Winchcombe, this tastefully-renovated Cotswold stone property spans four floors, with a south facing terrace and conservatory.

At street level, three rooms and a kitchen are used by the coffee shop, while the upper levels offer residential accommodation, embracing a lounge, three bedrooms, a newly-fitted kitchen and a bathroom.

This property is on the market for £550,000. For the full listing, visit rightmove.co.uk.

2. Tunley, Sapperton, GL7

Situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty within a magical woodland setting, this grade II listed Arts and Crafts house must be seen to be believed. Especially given that barely a decade ago, it had fallen into disrepair.

Having started life as two cottages, The Thatched House was once owned by Wedgewood designers, Alfred and Louise Powell, and has been sympathetically restored by its current owners, offering three bedrooms and gorgeous gardens.

This property is on the market for £1,850,000. For the full listing, visit rightmove.co.uk.

3. Brimscombe Hill, Burleigh, Stroud, GL5

Not just a house for those who want to feel at one with nature, this highly-insulated and triple glazed property boasts all sorts of eco-friendly and energy saving features. However, it’s the panoramic valley views and sliding doors to the garden that really stick in the mind.

Now on the cusp of completion, whoever buys it can decide on their own kitchen and bathroom fittings, as well as how to design and plant the garden.

This property is on the market for £1,100,000. For the full listing, visit rightmove.co.uk.

4. Compton Abdale, Gloucestershire, GL54

It’s not hard to imagine how this former corn mill might have looked in its heyday, with exposed wooden beams, full height ceilings and the back garden revealing what is left of its original cast-iron water wheel.

Offering three bedrooms and a generous kitchen-come-family room, the characterful, grade II listed barn conversion is located in the Cotswold village of Compton Abdale – also home to a quirky crocodile head waterspout that makes a fascinating talking point.

This property is on the market for £475,000. For the full listing, visit rightmove.co.uk.

5. The Docks, Gloucester, GL1

Offering warehouse living, this modern two-bed dockside property, located within Gloucester’s historic Double Reynolds development, is the epitome of industrial chic – all exposed beams and feature brick walls.

And if the fifth-floor waterfront apartment with Juliet balcony, plus secure allocated parking, doesn’t appeal, you could generate a potential rental income of £900 per month by letting it out instead.

This property is on the market for £210,000. For the full listing, visit rightmove.co.uk

6. Poulton Manor, Cirencester, GL7

Encompassing two cottages, currently used as holiday lets, and a coach house, the lucky new owner of Poulton Manor will get more than a grade I listed Cotswold country house for their money.

Complete with formal gardens designed to provide colour and interest throughout the year, vegetable plots and a wood store to keep the open fires topped up in winter, you may not need – or ever want – to leave.

This property is on the market for £2,250,000. For the full listing, visit rightmove.co.uk.

7. Rooksmoor Mills, Stroud, GL5

As selling points go, a private rooftop terrace is difficult to top, especially when flickering fire pits and twinkling festoon lights can make an outdoor space cosy enough to enjoy all year round.

This stylish new-build terraced house, which has three bathrooms and three bedrooms, also boasts beautiful views, ample parking and easy access to Stroud – fondly known as ‘the Covent Garden of the Cotswolds.’

This property is on the market for £430,000. For the full listing, visit rightmove.co.uk.

8. The Old Chapel, Newnham, GL14

Built on the high street in the historic village of Newnham, the new owner of the Old Chapel can convert these business premises into a beautiful bespoke home, with planning permission already granted.

An impressive mezzanine level was added in 2004 and although the layout of the property may need some reworking in order to accommodate a family instead of a business, it’s sure to turn heads with its stunning original features, vaulted roof and stained-glass windows.

This property is on the market for £350,000. For the full listing, visit rightmove.co.uk.
