With its BEAUTIFUL RURAL POSITION on a PRIVATE COUNTRY ESTATE near to Great Witcombe this pretty and detached FORMER SCHOOL HOUSE COTTAGE has the benefit of open views and rural tranquillity whilst still WITHIN EASY REACH of Cheltenham, Gloucester and the M5 /A417.

The Witcombe Estate has been in the SAME PRIVATE OWNERSHIP FOR OVER 400 YEARS and enjoys a VERY ATTRACTIVE SETTING within the Cotswolds AONB below the curving, heavily wooded slopes of the Birdlip escarpment.

Close by the Norman parish church, the Old School House offers a sitting room with OPEN FIRE, SEPARATE DINING ROOM /STUDY, a kitchen /breakfast room, shower room and 2 BEDROOMS.

Externally there are GENEROUSLY PROPORTIONED GARDENS mainly laid to lawn and with outstanding rural views - a shed and SINGLE GARAGE as well as OFF ROAD PARKING.

Available for a LONG LET IF DESIRED we would encourage early viewing to avoid disappointment.


Great Witcombe is situated within a Conservation Area and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty which helps preserve it as one of the prettiest settings in the Cotswolds. Little more than a hamlet, it has many historic buildings and its focal point remains the historic church.

It also remains true to its origins, its few contemporary buildings blending in very well to their surroundings. The quiet country lanes around Great Witcombe are a great source of walks and there is a network of public footpaths.

Conveniently positioned between Cirencester, Gloucester and Cheltenham, the area is characterised by sleepy little valleys and stunning views which have a timeless quality about them. Consequently it is an extremely sought after location in which to live.

There is superb access to the M5 via Junction 11a providing excellent commuting south to Bristol and North to Birmingham. The four local centres of Gloucester, Cheltenham, Stroud and Cirencester provide extensive facilities both recreational and educational, the latter to include Cheltenham College, Cheltenham Ladies College, Dean Close, Rendcomb College and locally, Birdlip Primary School.
