Buying a new home in Gloucestershire could be the ideal way to combine a rural way of life with convenient access to major towns and cities when needed, for work or pleasure.

Huge swathes of the county are designated Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and lovers of the outdoor life are really spoilt for choice, with the landscapes of the Cotswolds, Forest of Dean and the river valleys of the Wye and Severn to explore. There are numerous historic castles and houses, including royal residences such as Gatcombe Park and Highgrove, and a host of leisure options.

Gloucester Docks and Sharpness Canal

 While Gloucestershire may be characterised by some of its splendid villages and scenic areas, it is also home to a city, Gloucester, and numerous large towns such as Cheltenham, Cirencester and Stroud. Picking your new home location carefully means you can easily enjoy a home in a rural area yet be within minutes of all the shops and amenities that you need. There is a good range of schooling and educational establishments around the county, too, catering for all age groups from infants to undergraduates. Check out our range of new homes in Gloucester, new homes in Cheltenham, and new homes in Stroud.

The main motorway link is the M5, running north to south and linking the county to Bristol and the south west in one direction and Birmingham in the other, making Gloucestershire a good choice for commuters in either area. Other major roads offer convenient access to major commercial centres such as Bath, Oxford and Swindon. The county is served by a number of rail services to destinations in the West Country, the Midlands and Wales.
