Situated to the east of Cheltenham, on the outskirts of the town, Charlton Kings is a small town with a fantastic community amenities and schooling. To tell us more of what makes Charlton Kings such a fabulous place to live, we sat down with Branch Manager, Sam Banfield, who has lived in Charlton Kings for many years and is currently raising his family in the town.
‘I think that makes Charlton Kings so brilliant,’ Sam told us, ‘is that it has a village feel to it. Everyone knows everyone, which makes it a really special and safe place to live, and particularly to raise families. On top of that, Charlton Kings is home to some of the best schools in the Cheltenham area, with amazing schooling from pre-school age, which is where my two children are currently, right up to the Sixth Forms. All of the schools are very highly rated, and we also have public schools in the town, making it an affluent area to live in.’
As well as being home to fantastic schools, Charlton Kings is also home to great pubs, restaurants and hotels, and is also close to major transport links, including motorways, as well as train lines in to Oxford and London. As Sam said: ‘The amazing thing about Charlton Kings is that Cheltenham is on your doorstep, and you can be in town in five minutes, but you can also be in the Cotswold countryside walking the dog in five minutes, too.’
Of course, we couldn’t speak to Sam about the area without asking about the property there too. ‘There’s a good mixture of homes in the area,’ Sam said. ‘There are lots of fantastic, big family homes with 4 or 5 bedrooms, but also smaller, cosier cottages and houses too.’ Sounds pretty good to us!
