SITUATION The pretty unspoilt Cotswold village of Sopworth is situated amidst some delightful countryside close to the Gloucestershire border in the heart of Beaufort Country. Sopworth is about 6 miles south west of Tetbury and 6 miles west of Malmesbury. The village, which is set close to the heart of the Badminton Estate, has many fine old houses and cottages, most of which will have formed part of the Estate at some point. As such the village is largely protected by the surrounding park and farmland. Within striking distance are popular villages such as Sherston, which has a wide range of amenities, Westonbirt with its excellent school and renowned arboretum and Didmarton with a popular pub. For shopping, Tetbury provides two supermarkets, many antique shops and fine food outlets. Bristol, Bath and Cirencester are within 23, 19 and 18 miles respectively.
The surrounding countryside provides a wonderful source of walks and opportunities to ride. Sopworth adjoins Badminton Estate, the home of the Duke of Beaufort and the venue of the Badminton Horse Trials. There is a small golf course at Westonbirt and an outstanding course at Minchinhampton. For children of school age there is Rose Hill Westonbirt prep school about 3 miles away and Beaudesert Park at Minchinhampton.
