Spotlight on... in Cheltenham

Situated in the heart of the Cotswolds, Cheltenham is synonymous with the annual Gold Cup but there is so much more to this beautiful town than its annual race festival.

It is, for instance, the most complete Regency town in Britain. The tree-lined Promenade was voted one of the top five best shopping streets in Britain in a poll for Google Street View and as well as its regal terraces, up-market boutiques, stylish cafes and world-class restaurants all vie for your attention.

Fashionable, vibrant and popular with homebuyers of all ages, Cheltenham really does tick so many boxes when it comes to finding a new home and in March 2014, The Times voted Cheltenham as one of the best places to live in Britain.

At Peter Ball, we always have a wide selection of properties available for sale and to rent in Cheltenham - from sleek, town-centre apartments to detached family homes and stunning Regency town houses. See our top ten reasons for moving to Cheltenham today and we think you'll agree this beautiful town really is a dream location that's well worth exploring.
