Spotlight on... in Charlton Kings 

Charlton Kings is a lovely village just a mile out of Cheltenham's historic town centre. With its great schools, wide range of amenities and gorgeous mix of red brick and modern houses, it's easy to see why properties here are snapped up so quickly.

London Road runs through the heart of the village and it's here you'll find an eclectic mix of independent shops, cafes, and restaurants. Charlton Kings also boasts two churches, a post office, an optician, library, doctor, chemist, hairdressers and a number of antique shops.

It's not all hustle and bustle though as the village is also home to Lilley Brook Golf Club which enjoys a shared heritage with the renowned Augusta National, home of the US Masters. Both courses were designed by the famous Dr. Alister Mackenzie. When you play the course here, you're treated to stunning views of nearby Cheltenham.

Explore the little valley at the lower end of Bafford Lane and Lilley Brook for some extra peace and quiet or, if you want to take an alternative route into Cheltenham, hop on your bike and take the cycle path through Cox’s Meadow and into Sandford Park.
