Location Drews Farm is situated in the Leadon Valley area of Gloucestershire between the city

of Gloucester and Newent. Located away from the road the farm enjoys unspoilt rural

views across to May Hill and the Forest of Dean, access to Gloucester, Cheltenham and

Ross on Wye is most straight forward.

Description Drews Farm comprises a traditional livestock holding typical of this part of

Gloucestershire which is lotted as a whole and free of uplift clauses allowing the new

owners to pursue their own options for the future of the farm.

The main farmhouse comprises a substantial red brick House that has been well

maintained by the current occupier over many years and sits surrounded by a range

of both traditional red brick timber and concrete block buildings that exist between

a good and dilapidated condition.

Adjacent and semi-detached to the main farmhouse is Drews Farm Cottage of similar

construction to the main farmhouse and again in a well maintained condition.

The buildings provide a range of options to the purchaser and some would be well

suited to residential conversion subject to the necessary planning consents.

The farmland, with the benefit of a long road frontage to the south have been used

for many years for livestock grazing and are divided by hedgerows in to a number of

well maintained permanent pasture paddocks.
