This attractive town house is within a few minutes walk of Dursley town centre with its range of facilities including: Sainsbury's supermarket and numerous independent retailers, and Rednock Comprehensive School. Between the property and the town centre can be found the doctors surgery, library and the popular Old Spot public house. The local landmark of Stinchcombe Hill forms the backdrop to the property and is close to the Cotswold Way. Stinchcombe Hill provides a range of country walks and is the home of a challenging 18 hole golf course. Dursley is well located for commuting to the larger centres throughout the south-west via the A38 and M5/M4 motorway network. The adjoining village of Cam has a Park and Ride railway station which has regular services to Gloucester and Bristol with onward connections to the National Rail network.


From Dursley town centre proceed through May Lane and turn left after the Lions Club and before the library, follow this track up and bear right along the back of the terraced properties, and number five can be found at the fourth property on the right.
