On the edge of open countryside, designed for today’s lifestyle

Blunsdon is thought to mean ‘the hill belonging to Blunt’ - there are remains of an Iron Age fort on Castle Hill to the east of the village - and also appears as ‘Bluntestone’ in the Domesday Book. The area known as Blunsdon straddles the busy A419 with many new developments to the south west in Blunsdon St Andrew, especially around Saltzgitter Drive, while the village area of Broad Blunsdon to the north east is currently a lot less developed. Here, you find yourself not only on the edge of open countryside but also on the edge of Roman history.

Recent developments mean the Roman heritage is not that
easy to spot but one local landmark is thought to have been
the location of a Roman traveller’s resting place on the road
to Cirencester. The current establishment - the Cold Harbour pub - is a beamed 18th Century construction but still claims a colourful history. One story that used to adorn their menu suggested that festivities at the inn were once so riotous that the bar floor collapsed, plunging the revellers into the room below! Don’t expect quite so lively an atmosphere today.
