Welcome to Sheepscombe


Not just a pretty place...

Sheepscombe is set in a beautiful valley near Painswick and comprises several hamlets: Jack's Green, Longridge, Cockshoot and Sheepscombe itself. Renowned for it's unique cricket pitch, it has a church, a school, a pub and a lovely village hall, where a wide variety of social events are focussed.
The surrounding woodland and countryside provides wonderful walking opportunities through this area of outstanding natural beauty.
