Peglars Farm, Flaxley, Newnham

Carver Knowles are delighted to bring to the market this 5 bedroom family home with garden, a range of agricultural barn and paddock for the first time in over 40 years.

Peglars Farm is located in the quiet hamlet of Flaxley close to the popular village of Westbury-on-Severn which provides a petrol station, shops, school, and a pub. The surrounding area is made up of the picturesque Forest of Dean, The Wye Valley and The Cotswolds Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The property is situated in a beautiful rural location yet with excellent access to main road network. The A48 gives good access to Gloucester, Cheltenham, Chepstow and Bristol. The M5, M50 and M4 motorway network brings the Midlands, South Wales and South West into easy commuting distance. Gloucester and Lydney provide easy access to the mainline rail network and
Birmingham, Cardiff and Bristol airports are all located within 60 miles.


Peglars farmhouse is an attractive two storey property which has previously been separated to form two separate dwellings. The property could continue to be occupied as two dwellings or could be brought back together as a single dwelling using the connecting doors on both floors.

The sitting room leads off the main hallway and provides generous living space and a large open fireplace. The lounge provides a more intimate living area and also features a large open fireplace.

The main kitchen features a recently installed AGA, a comprehensive range of units and large windows which look out onto the garden, giving the room a light and airy feel. The kitchen leads through to the garden room which has French doors giving access to the garden. A second fully equipped kitchen allows the property to be sub-dived into two if required.

There are five bedrooms and two family bathrooms with a range of character features including exposed beams and original wooden floors. The first floor is accessed by two separate staircases. All the bedrooms have large windows with views over the surrounding countryside.

Whilst a wonderful family home, the property could benefit from some updating.


The farmhouse enjoys a large, enclosed, private garden as well as convenient proximity to the farm yard. The garden features a large pond and stone duck house with a beautiful rural outlook. In addition to this, the paddocks extend to 1.80 acres and 1.45 acres giving the potential for pony grazing.

The farm yard features several agricultural barns:

• Two Traditional Stone Barns (approximately 21.60m x 5.60m and 25.24 x 7.26) with two stories and cobbled floors. Light and spacious with slit windows and magnificent raftered roof, these barns have great potential for use as an office or dwelling, subject to obtaining the necessary planning consents.
• Pole Barn 1 (17.20m x 6.50m) with stone wall rear elevation and partial Yorkshire boarding cladding.
• Dutch Barn (13.90m x 4.80m) with two open elevations tin cladding and roof.
• Pole Barn 2 (8.00m x 5.00m) with open elevations and tin cladding and roof.
• Pole Barn 3 (8.20m x 6.20m) with corrugated tin cladding and roof.
