Painswick Overview

'The village of Painswick is famously known as the 'Queen of the Cotswolds. Painswick's charming and ancient St Mary's Church is surrounded by an exceptionally stunning church yard, filled with marvellous trees and classic pathways. 

Further attractions of the village includes the notorious Painswick Beacon. The Beacon overlooks the Stroud valley to the East side. Upon this view King Charles the 1st said "This must be paradise". Rightfully so, this name has lived on and the views from the Beacon are next to exceptional. The Painswick Golf Club can be found on the Beacon and the holes of the course stretched strategically along the surface. The club not only hosts Golfing events but other types, including musical events. In the upcoming months musicians such as The Blues Brothers are scheduled to perform. 

The local town and high street prove first hand the history and culture associated with Painswick. Most of the village has been contracted from locally quarried cotswold stone and fits the classical and conventional cotswold look. Many of the buildings feature south facing attic rooms, once used as weavers' workshops. There is a range of local businesses including bookkeepers and antique centres. Moreover, the villages physical attributes are shown at the local rugby club, home to junior and senior teems. The club offers hospitality to locals, members and visitors. The club also is the home ground to the Stroud Junior District team. Games between Gloucester, Stroud, The Forest of Dean and Cheltenham take place once a year at either Painswick RfC or locations in the other districts. 

Finally, old culture is emphasised through the world famous Rococo Garden. This 18th century pleasure ground is situated just outside of Painswick and offers a classic insight to English garden design. The garden attracts a range of tourists and adds great publicity for the Village.

Cotswold TV Tourism

  • The Cotswolds is one of Great Britain's most popular tourism destinations. With a wide selection of enjoyments for all ages the Cotswolds has everything from beautiful countryside to walk, explore and enjoy through to designer shops, galleries and museums.

    We are very lucky to have the multi award winning Dormy House Hotel in Broadway as sponsor of Tourism on Cotswold TV, making the coverage of community spirited tourist attractions, towns, villages, events and more possible on Cotswold TV.

    Perched high above the village of Broadway, with fabulous views across the Cotswolds, Dormy House is the perfect rural retreat. Think cosy corners, log fires and sumptuous interiors. Like home, but better. Built around a 17th century farmhouse, Dormy House is a lesson in fine design. It’s only when you step inside that you begin to understand what the Dormy is really about. Contemporary design meets Cotswold chic. It’s a relaxing place where you’re encouraged to put your feet up. After all, isn’t that what furniture is really for?

    Not only for staying the night, Dormy House has long been at the centre of the Cotswold’s gastronomic map with two delicious dining experiences. The Garden Room restaurant proves that fine dining doesn’t have to be fussy while next door The Potting Shed is all about great local grub.

    Thank you Dormy House for promoting the Cotswolds with us, here on Cotswold TV.
