About the property

House in Apperley, near Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire, England - Ideal location to explore the Cotswolds and Forest of Dean

Fettiplace occupies the ground and first floor of the east side of Wightfield Manor and sleeps 4 to 5 people in 2 bedrooms and includes the use of the gardens and pool. Wightfield Manor is a medieval moated manor house and listed grade II* as being of exceptional architectural and historical interest and dates back to the 16th century.

The entrance to Fettiplace is via a Norman arch, partly constructed of a fallen chapel from Tewkesbury Abbey. The flagstone floor entrance leads off to a WC, dining room and kitchen, which in turns leads off to the elegantly paneled sitting room.

Fettiplace is located 8 miles from Cheltenham and Gloucester, 3 miles from Tewkesbury and just 4 miles from the M5, making it an ideal base to explore the Forest of Dean and Cotswolds. There are of course many attractions to be found in Cheltenham and Tewkesbury Abbey is certainly worth a visit.

The Farmers Arms is our closest pub and is a pleasant walk across fields in the summer. Our favourite local pub is The Gloucester Old Spot which has good food and local ales. Another favourite is the Michelin star Butchers Arms just 10 mins drive, offering high quality dining in a relaxed cosy country pub setting.

A delightful walk or bike ride can be taken straight from the house down to Deerhurst where you can visit the Anglo-Saxon church, Odda's Chapel, the most complete surviving Saxon church. Continue a little further and you will find a foot path running along side the river with various pubs on route.

If you're visiting with children, you might like to use the children's play ground, playing field and newly surfaced tennis court, all just a 4 minute walk from the house.

About Paul Benbow

My family has worked tirelessly since 1988 to restore Wightfield Manor and the surrounding barns. It would be great to share Wightfield Manor with others now it's finally finished. We love it here and think you will too!

Paul Benbow purchased this chateau / country house in 1980
