Canonbury Rise is well placed to make the most of the local amenities of the historic town of Berkeley, less than a mile from the high street which includes a selection of shops, cafes and pubs.
The small town sits on a hill in the Vale of Berkeley, midway between Bristol and Gloucester and overlooking the River Seven. With many listed buildings in the town, Berkeley Castle is the most famous landmark in the area, first built in the 1100s and remaining in the hands of the Berkeley family for over 900 years. Today, the castle, its landscaped gardens and butterfly house are host to events throughout the year.
Berkeley Primary School is less than a mile from Canonbury Rise and covers pre-school all the way to year six. Rednock School in Dursley and Katherine Lady Berkeley's School in Wotton-under-Edge offer secondary and sixth form education. Two miles from Berkeley, beside the river, stands SGS Berkeley Green UTC, a specialist college focusing on advanced manufacturing and digital technologies for learners aged 14-18.
The town is two miles west off the A38 Gloucester/Bristol trunk road. Living in Berkeley means you'll be able to enjoy access to Stroud (27 mins*), Gloucester (30 mins*) Cheltenham (35 mins*) and Bristol (32 mins*), where there are plenty of places to eat, drink, shop and relax.
