The story behind the name

We care about the nature and wildlife around us, big or small.

That's why in honor of The International Centre for Birds of Prey, we have sponsored a Merlin and named our brand new development after the bird of prey - Merlin Gate.

About the area

A fantastic location

Set just north of the Forest of Dean and located within a historic market town, with buildings dating back to the 13th century - you have the charm of village life. Yet, you are conveniently located a short drive from Gloucester’s city centre.

At Merlin Gate, you can appreciate all that nature has to offer with wildlife attractions on your doorstep. Enjoy beautiful walks or cycle rides or head down the high street where you can find great restaurants, takeaways and a range of local shops such as Newent Tandoori, The Italian Kitchen and The George.

Essentials on your doorstep

At Merlin Gate, you will find a Co-op supermarket, plus a few local convenience stores for your weekly shop just a few minutes walk away. For families, Newent community secondary school and local primary schools are only a 5 minute drive from the development. Newant Lake is also just a short bike ride away, giving you a good healthy balance of outdoor family life.

If you enjoy eating out and socialising, there are plenty of great local pubs and restaurants to choose from or you could head into the city for something a little more lively.
