Why Move to Stroud?
Stroud is well-known for its industrial heritage. An upmarket town in the county of Gloucestershire, which comprises part of the Cotswold Hills, in the flat fertile valley of the River Severn, and the entire Forest of Dean. The town is oozing with ruralness and character but without the high cost of property normally associated with a wonderful location such as this.
Stroud is known as a centre for contemporary arts. Many writers, artists and craftspeople live in the five sweeping valleys in the area. You know when a town is special when it is featured in a TV show or a movie. Cider with Rosie, the English poet Laurie Lee ‘s tale of country life, is set in and around Stroud. Whilst “Back”, a British sitcom starring David Mitchell and Robert Webb also used Stroud as its filming location. Familiar movies shot in the region also include Harry Potter, Downton Abbey and Poldark.
It is pretty well connected too, within easy reach of Gloucester, Swindon, Cheltenham, and Cirencester by rail including London only 90 minutes away. By road it sits not too far from the M5 and M4 offering perfect access north and south of the UK.
The bohemian town is known for its relaxing café culture and for having steep, narrow streets, brimming with high street retailers alongside smaller independent shops, cafés and galleries and home to one of the best Farmers’ Markets in the country.
One of the towns best features is Stroud Canal.
First opened in 1779 it fell into disrepair, but is now being brought back to life, a place where residents can enjoy a walk along the tow path, stopping at a traditional pub or café on the way. Stroud provides its 33,000 residents with a comprehensive package of convenience, great facilities, good schools and plenty to do recreationally.
Stroud Schools & Education
For a relatively small town you do not need to look hard to find a good school in the district.
There are a number of Outstanding Ofsted rated primary and secondary schools available as well as the opportunity to carry on to further education with a college situated in the town.
Notable primary schools include:
For good local secondaries:
Tertiary education in the town is provided by South Gloucestershire and Stroud College whilst the closest university is the University of Gloucestershire which has campuses a few miles to the north in Cheltenham and Gloucester.
Things to do in Stroud
Surrounded by an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, finding something to do out in the fresh air when you live in Stroud is so simple.
The Cotswold Way (regarded as one of the finest areas for walking in the UK) runs right through the town, popular with walkers. Whilst Rodborough, Minchinhampton and Selsley Commons which overlook the town are enjoyed by a mix of walkers, horse-riders, paragliders, and those looking for a locally made Winstones ice-cream.
To find out a little more about the town’s past, set in the beautiful grounds of Stratford Park is Stroud’s Museum. A Grade II listed 17th Century building which tells a fascinating story of Stroud’s rich and diverse history.
Popular with all, the waterways of the Stroud Water Canal have recently been transformed. So far nearly 6 miles of towpath have been upgraded for use by pedestrians, wheelchairs, buggies, mobility-scooters and cyclists and the towpath is now part of the Thames & Severn Way.
Cycling is very also immensely popular in the region and there are all manner of routes ranging from flat towpaths to gentle slopes and sharper escarpments. These differences in terrain give every level of cyclist a chance to enjoy an extensive network of routes.
