Location & Description

Saxons Lode Cottage is situated on the outskirts of the quiet, historic and ancient village of Uckinghall, approximately three miles south of the busy and popular riverside town of Upton upon Severn, just over five miles from Tewkesbury, eleven miles from The Malvern's, thirteen miles from Worcester and approximately sixteen miles north of Cheltenham and Gloucester. The M5/M50 motorways are less than ten minutes drive away and there are mainline railways stations in Cheltenham, Gloucester, Worcester and Malvern. The village is in the heart of unspoilt countryside with easy access to the Malvern Hills, Severn Valley and Cotswolds. The village is in the heart of unspoilt countryside with easy access to the Malvern Hills, Severn Valley and Cotswolds.

The property comprises a substantial two storey detached house which is in need of full renovation and refurbishment. In 2019 planning consent was granted for the demolition and replacement of the existing dwelling by a new five bedroomed home with a floor area of almost 2500 sq. ft. This has since lapsed but it is anticipated that a fresh application would be treated sympathetically by the local planning authority. Though Saxon Lode Cottage does require major investment and repair it is an opportunity for buyers to take on an exciting project and to create a new home in a style of their choice. What makes the house almost unique is its setting in large grounds with approximately 100 ft of frontage onto the River Severn. The property has its own slipway, landing stage and jetty and is offered with mooring and Riparian rights. Included within the curtilage is a large contemporary double garage. It is understood that although part of the garden does flood occasionally the house has remained unaffected over the years. Ground Floor

The main garden consists of a large terrace providing a raised and sheltered seating area with gated steps leading down to a lower paved patio and seating area and to a large lawn, flanked to each side by well established shrubs and mature trees. A concrete slipway provides a direct route from the house for boats to be launched and at the far end of the garden along its 100 feet of riverside frontage is a landing stage and jetty.
