The clamour for the Cotswolds continues. Even more reason to rightsize, right now

You could be forgiven for thinking that the end of the government’s stamp duty holi- day would send house prices into retreat. That’s certainly not the case for the Cotswolds. The clamour for particular properties continues to grow unabated. It seems that for many the pandemic has led to a once-in-a-lifetime reassessment of how and where they live. All of which makes it an ideal time to consider maximising the value of your property and rightsizing your life to Newlands of Stow.

The people who have recently made the move 
It was only this March that Tom Blythe moved to Newlands from his 17th century house in Lower Swell. “ The purchase of my Newlands cottage was the easy part, thanks to a lot of help from the Newlands management team, who helped me source local suppliers to design and install blinds and curtains throughout the house that everyone admires. They also quickly and efficiently resolved some legal issues and some small maintenance recommendations suggested by my surveyor.” 

Retired Royal Navy Submarine Commander, Martin Bourdillion, wife Patricia and their lovely lurcher Zoe moved here recently from their large family home. “ After living in a number of places over the years, it was really just another move to us. I had thought that it would be hard to scale down on all our accumulated bits and pieces and we certainly gave a lot away to charities ...however, we brought masses with us, probably too much, yet I was pleasantly surprised how much fitted in - even our up- right piano is right at home in the dining room.”
