What did Muddy Stilettos have to say about Dursley?

In the list, Dursley was praised for its community, countryside walks and commuter links.

The Muddy Stilettos website says: “Hugged by lush green hills and sitting on the Cotswolds Way, Dursley offers all the perks of a buzzing market town with the added bonus of nature trails and breathtaking views on your doorstep.

“This place has a strong arty streak, attracting a talented, bohemian community of creators, crafters and artists. The town centre is a lovely place to wander, centered around a picturesque 18th century Town Hall.

“There’s little surprise it’s a magnet for families wanting to settle in the county, as well as being well connected to Bristol and a train station into London, it scores highly on great facilities including having a pool and leisure centre.

“There’s some serious money being pumped into the town, which can be seen in former Lister’s factory site at Littlecombe now being the single largest regeneration site in Gloucestershire (which means more homes) and the town’s Rednock School got a whopping £30 million revamp recently.”

The town is also praised for its places to eat, shops and nearby attractions including Berkeley Castle and Westonbirt Arboretum.
