Over the past year we have all had to stay in our homes much more than any of us would probably have liked to! With limited entertainment on offer when we leave the house, this also means that for large parts of the year people were hankering after long countryside walks as a reason to get out and about.
For this reason, demand for houses in rural areas has shot up – and where could be better than Gloucestershire if you are looking for a rural location to live in? Gloucestershire is a big county and is largely rural, so there are plenty of areas to choose from. If you are considering a move, it is always best to contact a local estate agent such as Gloucester estate agents TGRES who know the area well and will be able to advise you.
Here are some popular Gloucestershire areas if you are looking for a rural abode in which you will be able to enjoy the surrounding countryside…
