The Old Thatched Cottage The Green, GL52 9HS


For Sale

Situated on The Green in Woodmancote, this quaint yet spacious Thatched Cottage simply must be viewed in order to appreciate the space and wealth of character it has to offer.

Believed to originally date back to 1536, (the year Henry Tudor had Anne Boleyn beheaded) the property has an abundance of charm and evolved individuality.

This has to be a consideration for anyone looking in this price range for something interesting, unique and in the right location.


Set  right in the heart of Woodmancote village and at the foot of Cleeve Hill, with lovely hill side views.


The village itself boasts an excellent Primary School, a well stocked village store and a renowned pub and eatery (The Apple Tree) all within a few minutes walk of the house.


The property comes with a 100 foot frontage and outside is surrounded by gardens with mature fruit trees and bushes, generating a surprising seclusion, with a garage, car port and large driveway to the left hand side providing off street parking for 3 to 4 vehicles. 


There is live planning for a Studio (Tewkesbury B.C ref  02/6553/1407/LBC) which if incorporated with the garage offers great potential for investment.


The existing 3 phase electricity supply to the property, together with sufficient water and drainage within the grounds, offers the ability to take up a major hobby or provide  a small workshop/office to allow an increasing trend to Work From Home, again subject to relevant planning. .


Inside, the property boasts a staggering amount of space downstairs. 


There is a large 'L-shaped' Kitchen / Breakfast Room with the compulsory comforting AGA, leading onto the utility room and original stone entrance passage way. .

Downstairs There is also a further lounge / 4th Bedroom (with eased potential for ensuite and kitchenette) together with the Master bedrooms and adjacent full bathroom.


This whole area of the house offers great potential to be utilised as an annexe which could be self contained for an elderly relative who would also benefit from the regular local bus service to Bishops Cleeve and Cheltenham in close proximity to the cottage.
