Discover Amberley's Charming Heritage

Nestled amongst the picturesque rolling hills of Gloucestershire, Amberley is a quaint village where history and the present mingle with delightful harmony. Known for its tranquil surroundings and stunning natural beauty, this scenic locale offers much to its visitors. Whether you're stimulated by cultural roots, outdoor adventures, or simply the charm of English village life, Amberley waits to unfold its stories to those who wander its paths.

Amberley's Living History

Amberley, a serene paradise just two miles south of Stroud, is a testament to community spirit meeting traditional English culture. It rests on the edge of Minchinhampton Common, famed for its Golf Club and lush expanses that beckon outdoor enthusiasts. The history of the village is ever-present in the annual Amberley Cow hunt, a unique and whimsical event that doubles as a fundraiser for the local parochial school.

While meandering through the village, be sure to pay respects at the War memorial, honoring soldiers of World War II. Delve deeper into the village's narratives by visiting Holy Trinity Church, the final resting place for notable figures such as P C Wren, author of Beau Geste, and Sir Fabian Ware, founder of the Imperial War Graves Commission. A pint or a peaceful stayover at The Black Horse Pub and The Amberley Inn Hotel will connect you with contemporary community life, grounded in age-old hospitality.

The Great Outdoors of Amberley

The Stroud Five valleys area, within which Amberley rolls into the Minchinhampton and Rodborough commons, offers a rich tapestry of outdoor activities. Vast open green expanses invite kite flyers, while the presence of cows and wild horses makes for a bucolic scene. The commons are an ideal starting point for a day filled with discovery, topped with a cone from the local favorite, Winstones Ice Cream.
