Overbury Estate Testimonials
The Overbury Estate have been fortunate enough to receive wonderful testimonials from our tenants both past and present, and our local businesses.
I just wanted to get in touch to say thank you for welcoming me to Overbury – despite my busy work life (mainly in London) I have managed to meet a number of very friendly people who have been here for many years, bake cakes for the village hall fund and attend Lambing Live; having the opportunity to step out of the garden and walk the dogs is a huge bonus, and the views across the Cotswolds are just breath taking.
I would also like to say that my experience of working with you all to secure the property in Pigeon Lane was seamless and I love the fact too that I feel completely at home and know that I can stay for as long as you will have me!!
A truly wonderful moving experience for me and the pups….
My two year old son Jack and I moved into the wonderful village of Overbury in September. We have been welcomed into this beautiful village more than I had imagined by the Estate and everybody who lives here! The community spirit is definitely alive here, with something always being organised, from Bonfire night festivities to lambing live day in the spring. Having glorious walks and countryside on the doorstep, a lovely pub in both adjacent villages and a fantastic community, whom despite our busy lives we enjoy connecting with as much as possible, makes Overbury the place it is. If you are looking for real village spirit then look no further!

The Overbury Estate was always an area we admired whilst visiting the area for walks with the dog and first on our list of places to bring friends and family who were visiting Gloucestershire. We truly believe that the standard and quality of living that The Estate offers is unique, supported by a team of hard-working staff who provide a traditional and efficient service with class! Overbury is a fantastic place to live and work with easy access to the A46 and M5 combined with rural tranquillity.

Following relocation with my employer, we found Overbury Village purely by accident and fell in love with the picture postcard surroundings immediately. Our dealings with Alex and her team from day one were both friendly and professional, as they guided us seamlessly through the rental process, something totally alien to us previously. Everyone, without exception, has welcomed us in to the village and we have made some very dear friends within the first 6 months of our tenancy. If, like us, your dream is to live in a beautiful country village, then look no further, I promise you, Overbury will not disappoint you!

Toff and Georgie Milway’s beautiful pots led us to Overbury and we have worked here for almost twenty years producing art works. We are just one of a growing number of businesses in this beautiful and well looked after village on Bredon Hill. The residents show fine spirit enjoying regular events throughout the year from Burns Night to our great Street Market in July and beyond.

I came to Overbury in 2000 because the Estate’s stud was available for rent. The stud’s history, high reputation and excellent location make it a perfect place to operate a stallion stud. Overbury is a beautiful rural village. It has is a small settled and family orientated community and is therefore a wonderful place to live and raise children.
Simon Sweeting, Overbury Stallions
I can’t thank you enough for hosting such a first rate day. The passion and commitment shown by everyone at Overbury was a joy to see. The impact their story had on the children, parents and teachers was the perfect illustration of just how to educate, inform and inspire people to love, understand and appreciate the British countryside.
Please pass on my thanks to all for bringing the countryside alive to people who will never forget their day at Overbury.
Gary Richardson – CEO of Countryside Foundation for Education
Thank you for such a great welcome and wonderful start to our life here. Overbury is a model of kindness and efficiency and we are so grateful for all your help, thought and hard work.
Overbury is a beautiful village which is steeped in history and surrounded by a patchwork of woods, fields and hedgerows that attract an abundance of wildlife. Through it all threads a network of footpaths that lead the walker even further onto Bredon’s ancient slopes.
We came here 15 years ago with two young boys and have watched them grow and flourish into fine young men. With good local schools and a strong community spirit, they have enjoyed the duel benefits of living in the countyside whilst accessing the nearby towns to meet friends and seek out the more urban entertainments that interest older children.
For those looking for business opportunities, the Estate has worked hard to provide facilities and resources including a good business networking environment. And we like the idea of artists, potters and historians brushing shoulders with computer experts, teachers and farm workers in a real mix of trades and skills that add interest and balance to the village.
It is perhaps this mix and the traditional way of life that permeates the village, which gives rise to its strong sense of community involvement. This is best seen during events such as the Street Market, Village Dances and various Festivals and Church activities.
Dig a little deeper though, and you will find a sense of belonging in Overbury that is becoming increasingly rare in other towns and villages where people seem too wrapped-up in their own affairs to pass the time of day with their neighbours. We love this village and its surroundings and have made good friends here. We look forward to many more happy years in Overbury.

Martin, myself and our three daughters have lived firstly for four years in Conderton and now for the past six years we are lucky to be living in Overbury where we are settled and happy with a large number of friends around us. Our middle daughter goes to Overbury first school where she enjoys a huge variety of wonderful activities and she is always involved in something or other to do with the school or village life i.e. cricket club fun night, maypole dancing, street market, church services or even helping with teas at the open farm day and Faiths open garden .We also enjoy our local pub The Yew tree Inn which luckily is only a five to ten min walk!!!
Martin and Helen Kelsall
We moved to Overbury in 1996 to escape the hustle and bustle of town/city life with the pending arrival of our 2nd child. Thirteen years later we are very settled here with our 4 children (all of whom have or will be attending the excellent village school and nursery). We also run our business from here which is both wonderfully convenient and allows a lifestyle and time with our children we wouldn’t otherwise have. Village life at its very best with a thriving and friendly community!
