Six great properties close to excellent Cotswold pubs from £450,000 - £1.5million

“Pub culture has become an increasingly strong pull for buyers moving to the Cotswolds,” says Elizabeth D’Allemagne of Cotswolds property specialist Butler Sherborn.  “The standard of food and hospitality is now amongst the best in the country, and we are spoilt for choice.  For those moving to a village with a pub, the ‘local’ is one of the best places to meet people and quickly feel part of your new community.  Holiday let investors also recognise that villages with good pubs are where people want to stay during their holidays, as the holiday home market continues to boom,” adds Elizabeth.
