SITUATION Sherborne village lies in the folds of the Cotswold Hills and is mainly owned by the National Trust, as is the Sherborne Estate which controls much of the parkland and several thousands of acres of farmland surrounding the village. It is situated midway between Burford and Northleach, about a mile north of the A40 which connects Oxford and Cheltenham. The village, with its typical Cotswold cottages and houses, is situated in the heart of the valley of the Little Sherborne Brook. In the village is a local post office/shop, useful for everyday needs, a Parish Church, primary school and social club with more extensive facilities on hand in Bourton-on-the-Water, Northleach, Burford, Cirencester or Cheltenham. The property is well located for sporting opportunities, with golf at Burford and Naunton Downs; racing at Cheltenham and Warwick; water sports at the Cotswold Water Park; hunting with the Heythrop and Cotswold Hunts; and rugby at Gloucester.
