Discover the beautiful Cotswold village of Greet

December 13, 2023

Greet is a charming small village located in the county of Gloucestershire. It is situated in the picturesque Cotswolds region and is known for its breath-taking countryside and magical honey coloured architecture. Surrounded by rolling hills and open fields, Greet is a popular destination for walkers and hikers who enjoy exploring the natural beauty of the area and the quintessentially English green and pleasant land.

For those who enjoy outdoor activities, Greet offers plenty of options – the village is located near several hiking and cycling trails that wind through the beautiful Cotswold countryside or horseback riding, fishing, and golfing are also popular sports in the area.


Greet is within easy access of the market town of Winchcombe – traditionally famous as a centre for walkers, Winchcombe has a wonderful timeless quality about it, with Cotswold stone cottages standing side by side with distinctive black and white half-timbered buildings. Independent shops fill the town, you’re spoilt for choice with clothing boutiques, interiors and antiques, delis and traditional English village shops. It’s easy to while away a day getting lost in the narrow alleyways with the dreamy shops and galleries.


An incredibly easy nine-mile drive away is the beautiful regency town of Cheltenham. In 2020, Cheltenham was voted ‘the best place to live in the South West’ by The Sunday Times, with education, culture and connectivity highlighted as its best attributes. It’s easy to see why – hosting over thirty significant festivals a year including the Cheltenham Literature Festival and The Cheltenham Music Festival, an exciting foodie destination with the Michelin starred Le Champignon Sauvage as one of the many outstanding dining options, as well as a number of great school options – Cheltenham is a fantastic place to live or have on your doorstep.

Greet is the ideal place to call home if you want to explore what the rest of Cheltenham and Gloucestershire has to offer – whether you are interested in the outdoors, literature, music, history or simply relaxing in a lovely setting, it is well connected and simply – very, very beautiful.
