- Cranham Road is a quiet tree lined avenue in a sought after residential location just to the East of Cheltenham town centre. Morley is found about halfway down on the western side of the road, with lots of parking to the front.
- Cheltenham is famed as one of the most complete Regency towns in England and historically the original and most fashionable spa.
Less than a hundred miles from London it nestles beautifully between the Cotswold Hills and the Wye Valley, and is home to numerous prestigious schools including Cheltenham College, Cheltenham Ladies College, Dean Close and Pates Grammar.
Now a highly sought after place to live the town is well known for its grand houses set amongst formal avenues and beautiful garden squares.
- For those with a taste for the finer things in life, there are Michelin starred restaurants, numerous bars, stylish shops and salons aplenty. For art and history lovers there is The Wilson, Cheltenham’s newly refurbished museum and art gallery, whilst Cheltenham also has a thriving cultural scene that includes two concert halls and three theatres. There are the numerous festivals such as The Wychwood Festival, the festivals of literature, science, food and drink and, perhaps the pinnacle for some, the jazz festival, which has historically attracted such known performers as Van Morrison, Jamie Cullum and Jools Holland.
- Undoubtedly for many more, the highlight of the year is the annual racing festival culminating with the Cheltenham Gold Cup, the blue riband event of the national hunt calendar, and an attraction that draws the public to the town year after year.
