Other amenities in the town include a doctor's surgery, dentist, library, pub, two restaurants and a church. The main local centres are Nailsworth, Stroud and Cirencester which between them offer a comprehensive range of shops as well as various specialist suppliers. Cheltenham, Gloucester, Swindon, Bristol and Bath are the main regional centres.

There is a primary school in the village, good grammar schools in Stroud, Cheltenham and Gloucester and various private schools including Beaudesert Park. There are many lovely walks and rides in the area, particularly on Minchinhampton Common, a swathe of over 500 acres of open grassland that belongs to the National Trust.

Cricket, rugby, football and tennis are available in Minchinhampton. Also many equestrian events including Badminton and Gatcombe Horse Trials, polo at Cirencester and Westonbirt and National Hunt racing at Cheltenham.

To the side of the house is a parking area with an adjoining garage. The garden is laid mainly to lawn for ease of maintenance, with mixed shrub borders. There are attractive views over the adjoining countryside.
