Cotswolds and Oxfordshire Property

Date: May 2016


Gloucestershire estate agent, Ben Way, upset the score board at the Badminton 4* International Horse Trials at the weekend.  He finished in 12th place from a field of around 80 of the world’s best event riders, including multiple Olympians and world champions, and was the only competitor who also has a full time job outside of eventing.

Ben’s day job is as an estate agent with Butler Sherborn, and recently moved from Cirencester to the company’s office in Stow-on-the-Wold.  He specialises in equestrian property, as well as residential, farm and estate sales across the four counties of Gloucestershire, Warwickshire, Oxfordshire and Worcestershire.

Commented Sam Butler, founding partner of Butler Sherborn, “What Ben achieved this weekend was a fantastic achievement, especially as an amateur.  To come 12th at an event of such international standing amongst other professional competitors was remarkable.  He and Galley Light, a retrained race horse, excelled themselves, particularly with their faultless cross-country ride over the renowned and testing Badminton course.  The whole firm congratulates him and his team.

“Ben’s competitive involvement at the top of the equestrian world and his professional experience really gives us an edge when it comes to equestrian property,” added Sam.

Note to editors:

The Cotswolds
The Cotswolds are located in the heart of England and within the counties of Gloucestershire, Oxfordshire, Warwickshire, Worcestershire and Wiltshire.  It is the largest designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in England and Wales, and very roughly starts to the east of Gloucester and Cheltenham in the west, runs up to just below Evesham in the north, includes parts of West Oxfordshire where Burford is known as the Gateway to the Cotswolds, and south to the Cotswold Water Park a few miles beyond Cirencester, the former Roman city and Capital of the Cotswolds.

With excellent road and rail communications - London, Bristol and Birmingham are all within an hour by train - the area has become popular with those moving out of the city or wanting second homes to escape at weekends.
