The Downs is located in a beautiful part of the rural Gloucestershire countryside; in the hamlet of Awre, and just 1/2 mile from the banks of the River Severn - indeed most of the rooms in the property provide stunning views towards the river and beyond.

Arranged over 2 floors, with partial ground floor living, the property offers bright and airy reception rooms and the master bedroom suite (with super king size bed and en-suite shower/bathroom downstairs.

About the location

NEWNHAM-ON-SEVERN

This charming village, part of which is designated Conservation Area, has a tree-lined main street, many listed buildings, a striking central clock tower and is ideally located for watching the spectacular Severn Bore.

Gloucester is just a short drive away, where you will find Roman foundations, Victorian docklands and a spectacular Norman cathedral (whose cloisters were used in the Harry Potter films). Littledean with its unique Jail Museum and Quadrophenia Collection, Westbury Court Garden, the only restored water garden in the country and the ancient caves and eerie caverns of Clearwell Caves (as seen in Dr Who and Merlin) make a great family day out.
