Cleeve Hill, with a height of 330 m (1,083 ft), is the highest point in Gloucestershire. It is located in the Cotswolds amongst Cleeve Common, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and a site of Special Scientific Interest. Belas Knap, a Neolithic chambered tomb, exists close to the summit along with an Iron Age hillfort on its western slopes.
A golf course has also existed on the hill since 1891. A nearby car park provides a short walk to the summit. A trig point and toposcope are located at the top. The views extend over Cheltenham racecourse and over into Wales. On a very clear day, with good visibility, the view can extend 90 miles to Winsford Hill on Exmoor.
