The Old Rectory Meadow Moorings provides boaters with the opportunity for a permanent mooring along the River Avon near Tewkesbury, on the edge of the Cotswolds. Situated in a privately-owned meadow overlooked by the historic Old Rectory on the hill above, boaters can enjoy a quiet, private and secure environment in which to enjoy the River Avon.
Boaters can stock up on essentials at the Drapers Bakery & Stores which also houses the village post office. The fabulous Fox and Hounds pub is a short walk from the Moorings and the Royal Oak, on Bredon's Main Road, provides visitors with another watering hole.
The Moorings are located between the Tewkesbury and Strensham locks.
