Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Tranquil country living with extensive grounds that include an additional holiday cottage and detached annexe, stabling and paddocks and further grazing land. Magnificent views.


Greenacres is situated in Tidenham Chase on the west bank of the River Severn, on the perimeter of the Forest of Dean. The location also benefits from being situated close to the M4 ( 8 miles) and M5 motorways which are accessed via the A48 making visiting and commuting very easy. Bristol is approximately 18 miles away and easily commutable via the A48.


This significantly extended cottage features well maintained stone and rendered elevations, details of which have been matched on both the adjacent annexe cottage and the further substantial holiday home, once a large garage but completely remodelled to create generous rental accommodation. Green Acres is set in a peaceful and elevated location, just off a delightful no through lane from which magnificent views can be enjoyed across the grounds to the channel beyond.

Double timber gates open to a large enclosed driveway with parking for numerous vehicles in addition to a double garage. The main house offers three ground floor reception rooms with a dual aspect study set off the hallway. An extension to the rear provides a lovely bright drawing room with feature stone built fireplace and deep set wood burning stove. There is a further wood burner in the more intimate snug, with doors opening directly on to the rear garden. The dining room and kitchen both lead to a large timber conservatory which is the perfect space for entertaining large numbers of family and friends. The kitchen has a twin Belfast sink and oil fired Aga stove and to the rear, a useful utility area houses the oil fired central heating boiler. At first floor there are five double bedrooms, three of which enjoy the wonderful far reaching views and there are two bathrooms, both with baths and one with a free standing shower.

The detached annexe
This sits within a very pretty private garden with a dedicated gravel parking area for two cars. Internally, the property is in lovely order with single storey accommodation offering one double bedroom, smartly fitted kitchen, a small sitting room and generous bathroom. The annexe has independent Calor Gas central heating.

The holiday cottage
Again with its own allocated parking bay, the holiday cottage is currently run as a very successful AirBnB and is sufficiently detached from the main dwelling so as not to impact negatively on the privacy and enjoyment of the main home. Utilising the footprint of a former garage, the property was created only 4 years ago from the original structure that dated back some 15 years. It is easy to see why this accommodation has proved so successful – the layout includes a particular large and sociable kitchen/family area with recreation space, a dining and seating area around the wood burner. There is one twin bedroom and shower room on the ground floor with a staircase to the larger double bedroom with en suite bathroom at first floor. Immediately to the rear of the cottage is a raised sun deck surrounded by a small enclosed lawn overlooking the paddock and garden of the main house.

Overall the house sits in beautifully mature grounds of some 2.77 acres. There is the potential for a further gently sloping 3 acre paddock within walking distance with water, field shelter & stock-proof fence available by separate negotiation. This includes both stock proof paddocks with modern stabling incorporating two loose boxes and feed store. The garden enjoys plenty of sunshine, with large gravel and paved patio area leading down a small flight of steps to a decking with ornamental pond and the extensive sweeping lawns. A winding stone pathway passes through ornamental shrub borders and down to the pool house at the far end. Whilst the pool require a degree of refurbishment, the building offers a good alternative footprint for those wishing to create a home office or recreation room.

Square Footage: 5,984 sq ft
Acreage: 2.77 Acres
