DESCRIPTION

The land, which is south facing and accessed through double gates directly from Langley Road, sits at the foothills of Langley Hill and slopes towards the Langley Brook, a stream which carries water from nearby Cleeve Common to join the River Isbourne in Winchcombe, eventually feeding into the River Avon and merging with the River Severn at Tewkesbury.

The majority of the land has been in the same family for over a century and the larger field of some 32 acres of permanent pasture speaks of a time gone by with the ridge and furrow landscape of yesteryear on which sheep and cattle have grazed for generations. The adjoining field of some 15 acres has been an arable field in the past (last in 2014) and is currently a rye grass ley. It is accessed from the larger field and adjoins both the Langley Brook and an area of woodland of around 2 acres. Boundaries to the fields comprise stock fencing, mature hedges with mature trees and the Langley Brook itself.

Given the beautiful surroundings and stunning views and the proximity to the town of Winchcombe the land may now lend itself to alternative uses such as glamping and equestrian activities (subject to planning.
