The village of Avening is located almost equidistant between Nailsworth and Tetbury and provides local facilities which include two public houses one of which, The Queen Matilda has very good accommodation and the other The Bell Inn has an Indian take-away. There is a primary school with an outstanding reputation, and a historic Saxon Church. Located on the northern edge of Avening is the well-known Minchinhampton Golf Club, boasting two 18 hole courses.
Avening is very much in the Royal Triangle with Gatcombe Park, the home of The Princess Royal being immediately to the north of the village and Highgrove House, the country home of HRH The Prince of Wales, a few miles away near Tetbury. The nearest towns are Nailsworth and Tetbury, both of which have a reasonable range of local facilities including shops, public houses and primary schools with a secondary school at Tetbury. Also within the local area are a number of places of interest including the world famous Westonbirt Arboretum with some 18 thousand trees and shrubs in approximately 600 acres of landscaped grounds.
