The countryside within Gloucestershire has made the county one of the most popular places to live and visit in the UK. Situated in the south west of the UK, it contains the very green areas of the Royal Forest of Dean, the Severn Vale and the Cotswolds.
With desirability though, inevitably comes high property prices. So in this article, we thought we would research and display the 5 most expensive areas in Gloucestershire to buy property.
Number 5 on our list of most expensive areas is Cirencester, with an average property price of £398,000.
This market town is an ex Roman town, so possesses a lot of historical buildings and is situated within the Cotswolds. It has good transport links to roads but does not have its own railway station.
Coming in fourth on our list, is Westbury-on-Severn which is the only place in the top five not to be in the Cotswolds. The cost of an average home here is £414,000.
This small village which is a mile long has a population of 1,800 people. It certainly has a village feel with one primary school, one post office and one pub.

In second place of our most expensive areas, is Chipping Campden which comes in at £482,000 for a property on average.
This is a historical town with many buildings being Grade I or Grade II listed. The high street is indeed famous for distinguished terraced buildings dating back to between the fourteenth and seventeenth centuries. The word ‘Chipping’ comes from the old English word for marketplace.
The most expensive place to buy property in Gloucestershire, is Lechlade. This village has property prices on average at £591,000 and is considered to have wonderful views of the local countryside.
This historic town is mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086, which was a ‘Great Survey’ commissioned by William the Conquerer. It expanded in recent years with the development of the nearby bases of RAF Fairford and RAF Brize Norton.
