The Old Vicarage is an imposing country house (approaching 4500sq ft internal measurements) set in approximately one and a half acres of private gardens. It stands in an elevated position overlooking the beautiful woodland of the Royal Forest of Dean. The house was designed by Edward Blore, a well regarded 19th century British landscape and architectural artist. It retains much of the original character including spacious light and airy rooms with open fire places, mullioned windows with working shutters and an impressive double chamber cellar entered through a vaulted passage. The gardens are largely laid to lawn with established borders bounded by beautiful mature trees. The location is most convenient being in close reach of major road and rail networks. Cheltenham and the cities of Gloucester, Bristol and Cardiff are within commuting distance. A handsome, desirable country residence.

The drive sweeps around to the parking area and garage. The 1.5 acre garden offers plenty of privacy with grounds surrounding the house. It is largely laid to grass with established borders and mature trees under planted with spring bulbs of snowdrops, daffodils and primroses. The sheds and greenhouse are off the rear courtyard. Part of the rear garden is the orchard. There is a south facing view of the surrounding woodland from the property.
From Littledean Hill Road above Cinderford, proceed downhill on St Whites Road (B4226) for half a mile. The drive leading to the property is through the group of oak trees on the right hand side.
