The small town of Berkeley proudly sits on a small hill in the Vale of Berkeley, midway between Bristol and Gloucester. Overlooking the River Seven, the town is on the Little Avon River, which meanders its way into the Severn at Berkeley Pill.
Canonbury Rise is located on the eastern edge of Berkeley and ideally situated to make the most of the local amenities including a selection of shops, a Post Office, hairdressers, cafes and pubs. Living in Berkeley means you’ll be able to enjoy easy access to Stroud, Gloucester, Cheltenham and Bristol, where there are plenty of places to eat, drink, shop and relax.
No overview of this historic town would be complete without a mention of its majestic castle. Built in 1117 and remodelled in the 1350s, Berkeley Castle has been in the hands of the Berkeley family for over 900 years, with the most infamous historic event being the murder of King Edward II in 1327. Today the castle and its wonderful gardens are host to events throughout the year.
There’s a range of stunning walks throughout the Berkeley Castle estate and the surrounding areas where you can enjoy far reaching views of the escarpment and the River Severn. Nearby is Cattle Country Adventure Park, which makes a fantastic day out for the whole family with its range of play facilities and outdoor adventure playground. There’s also the Butterfly Sanctuary at Berkeley Caste and the Edward Jenner Museum near Dursley.
