Like most town centres, there’s plenty going on in Cheltenham for those looking for a full and varied social life. Whilst some of the suburbs of Cheltenham - like Leckhampton and Bishops Cleeve - have more of a village feel to them, the town centre itself has lots going on all the time.
Like most town centres, there’s plenty going on in Cheltenham for those looking for a full and varied social life. Whilst some of the suburbs of Cheltenham - like Leckhampton and Bishops Cleeve - have more of a village feel to them, the town centre itself has lots going on all the time. To get more of an understanding of what draws people to live in the heart of Cheltenham, estate agents in Cheltenham sat down with our town centre branch’s Sales Manager, Jamie Dyer, to hear what he thinks makes Cheltenham such a great place to live.
Cheltenham is on the edge of the Cotswolds, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the South-West region of England. The small River Chelt flows under and through the town.
‘I think first and foremost,’ Jamie said, ‘Cheltenham’s vibrancy is what attracts a lot of people do the area. There’s great places to shop, eat out, fantastic night life and just a really buzzy feel to the town centre estate agents in Cheltenham is there to guide you. There’s always something going on and ways for people to engage with each other and socialise, and I think that’s a really big draw. It cuts across all the generations too: in Cheltenham, you’ll always find something to do, no matter your age.’
Of course, Cheltenham’s history and large green spaces are also a strong selling point of the town, as is its famous racecourse and the abundance of festivals that the town hosts throughout the year. ‘Culture and history are both really big parts of the Cheltenham lifestyle, and those looking to immerse themselves in this will find it in abundance in the town centre,’ Jamie said.

On top of this, Cheltenham also has a fantastic reputation for education. Boasting the world-famous Cheltenham Ladies’ College, seven independent schools and plenty of state schools rated both ‘good’ and ‘outstanding’, this area is the ideal place to raise a family, and with easily accessible transport links, is ideally located to access other parts of the country too.
We couldn’t let Jamie go before asking him about the property in Cheltenham: ’It’s fantastic! The Recency-style properties are amazing and beautiful and bring so much character to the town. You’ve also got the lovely Victorian terraces, too, and just slightly outside of the centre of town, in places like The Reddings, beautiful large properties and family homes. The property stock in and around the town means there is a property and price range to suit all buyers, and this variety attracts lots of different people to Cheltenham, helping to create a really varied community with plenty going on.’
