Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Set high above the banks of the River Avon with stunning distant views over the Avon Ham, The Old Rectory enjoys a very private position within the heart of the village adjacent to the church and out of view from the lane.

Grade II* listed, The Old Rectory is a prominent detached family home of great stature and presence. Arranged over two floors (with a huge attic space not converted), the house boasts excellent proportions as well as retaining attractive period features that include high ceilings, a mixture of fine sash or stone mullions and attractive fireplaces.

Dating to circa 1430 and originally built as a Medieval Hall, the property was altered for the first time in the 18th Century and is principally the form it is seen today.

The house briefly comprises 5 double bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, 2 reception rooms, study, morning room, kitchen, pantry, cellar and cloakroom.

In addition, with its own private entrance but also accessible via the main house, a compact two storey annex lends itself to au pair accommodation or Air B&B usages.

Set in the centre of nearly 3 acres of well-established grounds, the house sits on the brow of the hill with formal lawns and borders to the front and a large sun terrace to the rear with herbaceous tiers that then lead down to the river meadow and the Avon beneath. There are formal gardens, plenty of parking, garaging and a paddock next to the river.

The property owns a series of twenty-two moorings on the winding River Avon, which create a reliable annual income and it is currently being run as a business. These moorings are accessed via a gate to the meadow located some way further down Dock Lane so do not encumber the house in any way.


Situated just north of Cheltenham on the edge of the Cotswold Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the well-patronised village of Bredon sits under the backdrop of the landmark Bredon Hill, high above the banks of the River Avon.

The village enjoys an excellent range of local amenities and recreational facilities that include public houses, village shop and Post Office, a highly regarded primary school, local surgery and pharmacy and of course, the church of St. Giles. Recreational facilities include a rugby club, football club, floodlit tennis courts and a bowls club.
