AT HOME Winter 2021/22

Helping people on the move in Gloucestershire, Oxfordshire and Wiltshire



Welcome... to our Winter issue

Contents As the seasons change, we find ourselves reflecting on another extraordinary year and looking forward to the future. We experienced frenetic activity in the estate agency market during the stamp duty holiday with multiple buyers chasing a limited supply of property coming to the market. Our teams have helped a record number of clients and buyers move onto the next chapter of their lives and have done so with enthusiasm and a lot of hard work. Whilst the incentive of the stamp duty saving has now gone, we still have a very high number of buyers who sold and moved into rented accommodation over the past year, just waiting for the right property to come to the market. As a seller, you may be deterred from marketing your home for fear of not being able to find your next property. As a local resident, even if you are only thinking about a move and have no firm time-scale in mind, Perry Bishop can automatically give you privileged access to new properties about to list even before they hit the property portals like Rightmove and Zoopla. By joining Perry Bishop’s new Local VIP Buyers Club, you will also gain access to properties being marketed on a ‘low-key’ basis that won’t be visible on Perry Bishop’s website or the portals. Despite the immense pressure earlier in the year, we were humbled to receive an average of 40 five star reviews each month which is remarkable. In addition, for the 4th year in a row, Perry Bishop has been independently identified as one of the top estate agents in the country and are included in the Best Estate Agent Guide, compiled by the Property Academy with the support of Rightmove. Only the UK’s top 3% of agents make it into the Guide. Are all estate agents the same? We don’t think so. We want to listen to you and your story, to learn what is important to you and your family, and to provide you with the empathy and understanding, matched with skills, professionalism and experience, to make this journey about you, not about us. Do please get in touch if you think we can help. Wishing you a happy and healthy New Year

Wonderful walks around the wolds T

he Cotswolds AONB provides a wide variety of walks to enjoy, taking in ancient trackways, picturesque villages, welcoming watering holes and unforgettable landmarks. We believe winter to be one of the best times of the year to get out in the fresh air of the countryside, experiencing nature as she prepares to bed down for the long months ahead, and enjoying the cool crispness of the landscape before returning to a cosy fireside. So, throw on your walking boots and backpack, and be inspired by these wonderful Cotswold walks.

Ebrington

Ebrington and Foxcote This delightful 4 mile walk from the village of Ebrington passes through open countryside and woodland to the Foxcote Estate. Foxcote House is a Grade II* listed, 18th-century country house in the village of Ilmington. The house was originally the family seat of the Canning family until 1848. In the English Civil War the Canning were staunch royalists, keeping a watchful eye on the Roundhead troops in nearby Warwickshire. The property has had many owners since, most recently Leslie Wexner, the billionaire tycoon behind the Victoria’s Secret lingerie empire who brought the property in 1997. Distance: 4 miles (6.4km) | Time: Approx. 2 hours | Parking: Roadside | Recommended direction is anticlockwise

The Slaughters This walk visits the villages of Upper and Lower Slaughter, classic examples of charming Cotswold villages with mellow stone houses nestled on the River Eye. Beginning in the tourist hotspot of Bourton-on-the-Water you quickly leave behind the busy main street and head into open countryside along the banks of the River Windrush, turning right towards Upper Slaughter. Pass through the centre of the village and turn to follow the River Eye to Lower Slaughter. Here you will find ice cream and refreshments at the Old Mill. After taking advantage of the photo opportunities, it is a short walk back to Bourton-on-the-Water where you will find a significant collection of eateries and tourist shops.

Distance: 4.5 miles (7.2km) Time: Approx. 2.5 hours Parking: Rissington Road Pay & Display Recommended direction is clockwise


Bibury

Bibury and Arlington This 6 mile circular walk starts from the much visited village of Bibury, with its picturesque terrace of weaver cottages ‘Arlington Row’. Once described by William Morris as the most beautiful village in England, Bibury is often referred to as one of the most photographed villages in the country. Before starting on the walk take time to explore this fascinating village with the beautiful River Colne taking centre stage. Leaving Bibury behind, the walk skirts past the quiet riverside village of Ablington with its magnificent Ablington Manor, a house and gardens that has been almost untouched by the disruption of time. Spend some time wandering around the village before continuing on your journey. You will travel through the lovely rolling cotswold countryside to the north of Bibury with its attractive farms, honey coloured stone walls and rich farmland. The route passes Ablington Downs and follows country lanes and well defined tracks through fields, along valleys and beside woodland. When you arrive back in Bibury there is The Catherine Wheel pub and The Swan Hotel for welcome refreshments. Start: Bibury | Distance: 6 miles (9.5km) | Time: Approx. 3 hours | Parking: Roadside | Recommended direction is clockwise

Coln St Aldwyns

Leckhampton

Leckhampton

Coln St Aldwyns

Areas of Leckhampton Hill have been designated as Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) for their biological and geological features. The area is predominantly unimproved Jurassic limestone grassland, nationally important for the fossils it contains. The walk takes us up the Cotswold Way to the Iron Age fort and Leckhampton Hill on the Cotswold Escarpment with far reaching views, round to the well known Devil’s Chimney stone stack perched on the edge, past victorian lime quarries and back through Charlton Kings Common to the beginning. A whistle-stop tour of history in just 4.5 miles!

This easy walk starts from Coln St Aldwyns, an extremely attractive Cotswold stone village situated right on the River Coln. Take time to admire the pretty cotswold stone cottages before heading down to the river for a delightful riverside walk which passes through water meadows and woodland. The walk then continues through open countryside and on to the next historic Cotswold village of Quenington with it’s Norman church and medieval gatehouse. Please note that some paths might be very muddy after heavy rain.

Distance: 4.5 miles (7.2km) Time: Approx. 2.5 hours Parking: Lay-by opposite Seven Springs pub Recommended direction is clockwise

Start: In the village of Coln St. Aldwyns Distance: 4.5 miles (7.2km) Time: Approx. 2.5 hours Parking: Roadside Recommended direction is anticlockwise

The Cotswolds have cosy pubs a plenty Dark and chilly winter evenings are perfect for huddling in the corner of a country pub with friends, catching up over beer and supper. The Cotswolds have cosy pubs aplenty – here are some of our favourite places to go

Snowshill Arms In the beautifully unspoilt village of Snowshill you’ll find the Snowshill Arms, a 15th century pub with charm and character in abundance. Following a visit to Snowshill Manor and Garden, or a walk in the village’s surrounding scenic countryside, rest up in front of the fire with a pint of ale to hand and something tasty to eat.

The Lamb Inn After a day exploring the nearby splendour of Blenheim Palace or Bourton-on-theWater, The Lamb Inn is the perfect cosy retreat to unwind with friends and family. This dog-friendly pub is warm, welcoming and full of charm and character. Curl up in front of the fire with man’s best friend at your feet and enjoy a bottle of wine or perhaps some of the local ale.

The Village Pub Only a short stroll from the Barnsley House Hotel, The Village Pub is your quintessential countryside watering hole, complete with brick-work walls, stone flooring, open fires, cosy armchairs and a warm welcome. Enjoy a delicious dinner over a bottle of wine and while the evening away in the pub’s atmospheric setting.

The Lion Inn A traditional pub with enviable contemporary interiors, The Lion Inn in Winchcombe is a charming spot to sink a few ales or enjoy a glass of full bodied red. Cosy up in front of the roaring fire while you peruse the menu bursting with delicious dishes - order some bar snacks to nibble on while you choose.

The Bathurst Arms Nestled in the bucolic village of North Cerney, The Bathurst Arms is the ideal location to enjoy locally sourced food and hand-drawn ales in beautiful surroundings. After exploring the local area, or trying one of the pub’s recommended walks, enjoy a long lunch in the warm, relaxed pub. Article courtesy of Cotswold Life

New Year, New Home? Selling your property quickly and at the best price A new year is an opportunity for a new start and, as expected, we are already receiving a steady number of enquiries from people living in our area looking to move in 2022. Whether you are hoping to downsize or acquire some extra space, we can offer advice for those looking to get their property ready to sell and ensuring you achieve the best price.

Follow our Top Tips for success: 1

De-clutter and de-personalise Start the big clear-out in advance of property viewings, and when you have given away, recycled or sold as much as possible, hide as much of what’s left as possible.

2

Spruce up the decor A fresh coat of neutral paint and re-grouting dirty tiling can make a big difference, and if your kitchen is starting to look tired, you don't necessarily need a new one. Giving cupboard doors a thorough shine or even replacing them, including the handles, can make a huge difference.

3

Deep-clean Either get the industrial gloves on and the elbow grease out or consider a professional cleaning company.

42 | At Home

4 Don't forget the garden

Give yours a tidy prune both front and back and position a table and chairs neatly in a spot where potential buyers could imagine having a morning coffee. 5 Sacrifice your parking space

If your home comes with an allocated parking space, leave it free for prospective buyers to use. It’s convenient, helpful, and gives them a hassle-free first impression to put them in a good mood ahead of the viewing. 6 Get on top of your paperwork

Instruct a solicitor to kick off the conveyancing process nice and early. Also, gather all the paperwork on your current property, such as building certificates for any structural work and guarantees for double glazing, boilers or fireplaces.


7

Be smart on viewings Let your agent show your home and ideally vacate. They are the experts – and don’t have the same emotional attachment. If you must conduct viewings yourself, show the best rooms either first or last and be ready for any questions. Call your local Perry Bishop office for property advice and a valuation of your home. We look forward to helping you with your next move!
