Outside, the grounds are described as “wondrous”, approached by a private drive and laid to lawn with mature trees, a tennis court, formal gardens and adjoining woodland. 

In the grounds, there is also a two-bedroom lodge which could be used as a rental or a holiday let. 

The grounds hold plenty of interesting features. (Savills )

The property is being sold by Savills for a guide price of £1,950,000.

Phil Bates, who is marketing the property for Savills Cheltenham, commented: “Glewstone Rise is a best-in-class Edwardian country home, with character and charm in abundance, in a hugely enviable setting in the hamlet of Glewstone, close to the River Wye. 

“Set within more than 5 acres, including remarkable formal gardens, and benefitting from impressively far-reaching countryside views, it is the ideal home for those looking to live the rural dream.”
