At the Grange – Local Information


Frampton-on-Severn is located in a conservation area on the stunning Severn Vale, adjoining the glorious Cotswolds. It lies on the east bank of the River Severn and on the west bank of the River Frome, from which it takes its name.

Set around a village green (22 acres: reputedly the longest in England), the village is designated a Conservation Area, with magnificent Tudor and Georgian properties flanking the Green. Frampton Manor, was mentioned in the Doomsday Book in 1089, and the parish church of St Mary the Virgin was consecrated in 1315.

Being just 2 miles from the M5 motorway, and with easy striking distance to Bath, Cheltenham, Gloucester and Bristol, this is a great location for exploring the Cotswolds, the Forest of Dean, Slimbridge Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust, Berkeley Castle, and the beautiful and dramatic Glamorgan Heritage Coastline, all less than an hour's drive away. Many of our guests come to see the spectacular Severn Bore.

With ancient ponds and resident swans, the village plays host to many fairs and events throughout the year, and traditional village cricket is played on the Green during the summer months. This is easy walking and cycling country, and the village is linked by a footpath to the Gloucester to Sharpness Canal. With is gloriously tranquil setting, intriguing history, two pubs, vibrant sailing club, seasonal polo, and the wonderful country fair held each September, Frampton is arguably one of Gloucestershire's best kept secrets.
