Location

Gloucester, England, United Kingdom

The Old Rectory at Twigworth is close to Gloucester and Cheltenham, just off the A38 between Gloucester and Tewkesbury. It is 7 minutes to the M5 and closer still to the A40. Built for the Victorian clergyman, it is very near St. Matthew’s church in Twigworth, so is easy to find. The
area is famous for the majestic and awe-inspiring Norman Gloucester Cathedral.
