About The Alum House

A two-story cottage originally built for the Northwest Gloucestershire Water Board about 100 years ago. This unique property has been converted to a high standard into a bijou dwelling for a couple of discerning holidaymakers.
The cottage features a natural timbered vaulted ceiling in the lounge and a restored Victorian spiral staircase leading down to the comfortable double bedroom.
There is ample off-road private parking with even room for your trailed boat or small caravan.
The Alum House is located just 50 yards from Thomas Telford’s iron bridge over the River Severn and is ideally placed for miles of riverside walks along both the Severn & Avon. Boat launching is nearby and we can even provide temporary moorings for a trailed boat if you wish. Well-placed as a centre for touring - the Cotswolds and Malvern Hills are less than half an hour away, as is the Spa town of CHELTENHAM renowned for its excellent shopping. STRATFORD, BROADWAY, BOURTON etc. are within a 25 mile radius.
It is but a short walk of about a quarter mile to the edge of Tewkesbury and the first of many pubs/restaurants; a further walk of similar length takes you to the centre of this historic town. The famous TEWKESBURY ABBEY is exactly one mile away.
The Alum House offers 1 double with en-suite shower room, tastefully furnished lounge, small but well equipped corner kitchen.
Full weeks run from a Saturday only, but short breaks (minimum 3 nights) are available starting any night through much of the year other than high season.
