Welcome to Hunts Grove!

Ideally situated in the Severn Valley, only 3 miles from the Cotswolds area of outstanding natural beauty, Hunts Grove is a great base for country life, whilst being convenient for Gloucester, Cheltenham, Stroud, and Bristol.

We hope you will enjoy being part of our new developing village.  Once you have settled in, found all the things you thought you had packed before moving house, what do you need next?

Utilities

Hunts Grove offers internet broadband services across the site with speeds currently up to 1130Mbps (Virgin Media).  Up to 900Mbps with BT Full Fibre (also known as FTTP, Fibre To The Premises). The primary network provider is BT, along with services that use the BT fibre network, such as EE and Plusnet.

Virgin Media has also installed its network across Phase 1 of Hunts Grove and some parts of Phase 2. Internet Many of the homes at Hunts Grove have private or shared driveways, which was an issue previously with Virgin Media making it difficult for them to reach your home with their fibre/cable. This has now been resolved as they have permission to use the in-ground ducts of BT/Openreach. 

Older copper-based telephone and internet services, such as ADSL broadband are still available at Hunts Grove, however, the network speed is very limited at around 10Mbps.
