                  Painswick - the 'Queen of the Cotswolds'

                  Not least because of its picturesque appearance and convenient location from which to explore the heart of the Cotswolds but most excitingly, if Painswick is the 'Queen of the Cotswolds' then Court house is its King - Princely not in just its size and stature, but in the mere fact that King Charles I himself stayed at this very home and held court here during the Siege of Gloucester in 1643. Legend has it he still haunts the grounds of Painswick and it's been well documented that the people of Painswick have seen his ghost along with his loyal men dressed in their Armour.

                  But don't let that put you off - staying at Painswick Court not only affords its guests a slice of pure country living but offers a rare opportunity to walk in the footsteps of a British Monarch - and even sleep in the same room as he did over 400 years ago. All this as well as shops, pubs and fine restaurants all in walking distance - Painswick is without a doubt the place to stay this year. The historical wealth of the area is not just confined to the property - Painswick itself boasts several points of interest and hosts an array of traditional events to immerse yourself in. Built of mellow Cotswold stone from the local quarry on Painswick Beacon the town's many beautiful buildings can be seen as you wander around its quaint and narrow, often cobbled, streets. From the popular Rococo Gardens founded in the eighteenth century by Benjamin Hyett and today the last surviving example of this frivolous Georgian movement when gardens took on a new role of being a less formal haven in which to let loose and have fun. To the imposing St Mary's Church dating back to the late fourteenth century with its ninety nine beautifully manicured yew trees that dominate the churchyard - these yew trees were planted in 1792 and legend has it that a hundredth can never grow because the devil will always pull it out! This is yet another example of the fascinating myths and fairy tales that surround this exceptional attractive Cotswold village making it the ideal place for families to not only live like a King but to truly understand the history of the English countryside.
