About our home

We live in a 17th Century Merchants house which we have carefully restored.

There are many original features including oak beams and open fires. The house is on 3 levels with views over the River Severn and the Cotswold hills.

We offer 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 3 reception rooms, dining room, study, country kitchen and full central heating.
The two bedrooms both with double beds are located in the second floor reached by a set of quite step stairs.

Our pretty garden is designed on 4 levels with a summerhouse and 2 separate eating areas.

Please note our home and garden is not suitable for children or anyone with limitations.
