Location & Description

The property enjoys a lovely position in the highly regarded village of Uckinghall, approximately 3 miles south east of the riverside town of Upton upon Severn, 5 miles from Tewkesbury, 13 miles from the city of Worcester and approximately 16 miles from Cheltenham and Gloucester. The M5/M50 motorways are less than 10 minutes distant and there are mainline railway stations in Cheltenham, Gloucester, Worcester and nearby Malvern.

Separate gated and gravelled pathways lead to the rear of the property with seating areas and a brick built BBQ and also to an area set aside for bin storage, log store and timber shed.

At the far end of the garden is a small sheltered wooded area set aside for wild flowers and trees. Here also is a summer house and a second garden shed. Within the grounds there is small, very productive, raised bed for the growing of vegetables. Oil tank, discretely positioned in the garden at the side boundary.
