The architecture in Stonesfield features many old Cotswold stone properties (roofed with locally-mined slate) mingled with late 20th Century buildings, and several properties in construction.

At the centre of Stonesfield stands the 13th century church of St. James the Great, its bell tower clearly visible above the surrounding buildings. There’s also a Methodist chapel. Some more history of Stonesfield can be found here.

The village has a thriving community with excellent facilities for its population of around 1,500.

Shops include a hairdresser and general stores. There’s a primary school and pre-school. Lively clubs and societies regularly use the Village Hall, the Sports and Social Club, and St. James’ Centre.
