Nailsworth is a small but busy market town situated on the west side of The Cotswolds in beautiful and unique countryside. The town (population c.6000) is a hive of industry and is still very much a working place to live, with plenty of thriving local businesses and a great range of shops and amenities including butchers, bakers, supermarkets, bank/building society, Post Office, library, doctors, bus station and playing field to name a few. Nailsworth was the first Fair Trade town in the area and this is reflected in its style of food shops, craft shops, restaurants and the like. The town dates back to Norman times and its history is diverse and plentiful with many local landmarks and buildings of all sorts. As a result of its appeal, the town has continued to move with the times. The town was also recently named by The Sunday Times as one of the top 101 places to live in the country.
