Why Live In Gloucestershire

Why Live In Gloucestershire

South West

The County of Gloucestershire is located on the northern edge of the South West of England and is divided into three parts, the majority of the Cotswolds, the Royal Forest of Dean, and the Severn Vale.

Gloucestershire is famous for many delightful Cotswolds towns and villages, for example, Bourton-on-the-Water, Cheltenham, Stow-on-the-Wold, Tewkesbury and The Slaughters. The County is full of exceptional views across the River Severn and striking countryside settings.

There is a strong equestrian presence in the County. One of the most famous equestrian events in the world is held at Badminton, the top Beaufort Polo Club is located in the County and the famed Cheltenham horseracing course is home of the renowned Gold Cup National Hunt Festival. With the areas of agriculture and equine playing such a large part in the County’s fabric, it is not surprising that properties such as estates, farms, barns and farm buildings are always in demand.

The city of Gloucester is dominated by a splendid Norman cathedral and the Docks area offers specialist shops, waterfront cafes, bars and restaurants.

The Royal Forest of Dean is perhaps one of the most unspoilt areas in the UK. 24,000 acres of forest attracts those with a love of walking and outdoor pursuits, whilst the Severn Vale meanders through an area of orchards, meadows and traditional half-timbered villages.

Striking countryside and beautiful villages made from honey coloured limestone mean that properties in the Cotswolds are extremely sought after; However the market in Gloucestershire as a whole appears to be stable and with the M4 and M40 providing easy access from London and the South East it is a viable option for those wishing to commute. The M5 is a direct link to Birmingham and the North and the counties of Devon and Cornwall.
