Description A substantial three storey period house in the old part of this very popular riverside village close to the Forest of Dean between Chepstow and Gloucester. The extensive accommodation is suitable for a large family, B&B or guest house (subject to consent). Grade II* Listed and of considerable character the house dates from the Seventeenth Century, with later additions. Among the many period features are the magnificent 17th Century staircase and the painted panelling in the dining room.
There are four reception rooms, including a traditional 28ft first floor drawing room, a breakfast kitchen, utility room and vaulted cellar. There are up to nine bedrooms, most with en-suite facilities, all of differing character and those at the front looking towards the River Severn. The surprisingly large, partly walled, and very private gardens are ideal for young children. A drive to the side leads to two large two-storey outbuildings/garages with potential for holiday lets etc.
Newnham-on-severn is a historic riverside village on the West Bank of the River Severn about 7 miles from Lydney, 12 miles from Gloucester and some 17 miles from Chepstow and the Severn Bridge. The centre of the village, with many attractive old buildings, is a Conservation Area, and has facilities to satisfy most every day requirements with more comprehensive shopping and a main line railway station in Lydney. The Forest of Dean is on the doorstep with miles of walks and rides.

Surprisingly large, partly walled gardens
Two very useful two storey outbuildings / garages
The drive from the front leads up the side of the property with access to two very useful brick built outbuildings, both are two storey, each with good sized garages to the front. The front garage formerly had commercial use and has a useful worktop/store to the rear with further studio/storage space over. The second building, to the rear, has a courtyard in front with parking and a pair of timber double doors to the garage with stairs to a loft over.
Immediately to the front is an enclosed fore garden with steps to the portico entrance. To the rear is a very attractive sunken terrace with stone wall and curved steps leading to the very extensive partly walled gardens. These rear gardens are level, laid mainly to lawn with well established boundaries of fencing and walling with mature trees and shrubs. These gardens are ideal for children to play safely and include a pergola and a summer house with veranda. To the rear of the garden is a children's den. On the rear of the house is a coal bunker.
