Steepleton, Tetbury



Steepleton is an imaginatively planned development of 113 apartments in Tetbury, one of the most attractive towns in the Cotswolds. The later living community is designed very much as a village, with a considered composition of streets, paths, gardens and buildings. Mature trees are retained and set in new green spaces. The whole arrangement frames a central natural swimming pond, an appealing feature for residents and their visiting families. The central garden is also next to the wellbeing suite with a fitness studio, a cosy snug, a café and guest suites.
There are six separate buildings in this five acre site, each one built around a courtyard garden with terraces and BBQs. The garden facilities are focused very much on residents growing vegetables, fruit, herbs and flowers. This active gardening brings many health and dietary benefits in addition to enhancing social cohesion.
