Area Spotlight - Huntley

February, 2016

The thriving village of Huntley is located on the edge of the Royal Forest of Dean.  The village is positioned on the A40, 7 miles north of the City of Gloucester.


The village has a population of just over 1,000.  Residents range from young families to the elderly.  Excellent bus routes in to Gloucester and in the opposite direction, Ross-on-Wye, make this village excellent for those dependant on public transport.


Set below May Hill, the location offers residents access to a wealth of country pursuits including horse riding, country walks and cycling.


There are many period properties in the village, however, between 1951 and 1980 a large number of new houses and roads were built.  All needs are catered for, from easy to maintain bungalows and starter homes, to the popular large detached homes situated along Byfords Road.


The local Primary School is situated next to the church of St John the Baptist which was built in 1100 A.D.  The small school has excellent Ofsted records and is a reason for many families moving to the area. 


Within the village is the popular Red Lion Pub which serves food and beverages.  There are a number of wonderful eateries a short drive from the village, including the extremely popular Glass House Pub on May Hill.  A Garden Centre and Garage with handy shop provide further amenities for residents and visitors to the village. 


A range of clubs and groups utilise the community hall in the centre of the village.  The Cricket Club has its own grounds along Grange Court Lane is home to the popular annual Beer Festival.
