Redbridge Cottage details

Redbridge Cottage, a bailiff’s home on the original Longleat Estate, dating from 1390, is a medieval property that has been lovingly updated for the 21st century and has featured on BBC1's Escape to the Country. Equipped to an exceptional standard, mixing the ancient with the modern, timber framed, inglenooks, and limestone elevations under pantile rooves combined with luxury bathrooms, underfloor heating, air-conditioning and entertainment facilities. In a building where previous occupants cooked on an open hearth and made themselves cosy in the ‘solar’, there is now space and comfort. Five reception rooms along with spacious kitchen, shower room and utility make up the ground floor, while upstairs there are four bedrooms with a family bathroom and a galleried attic. Completing the property is a large cinema room with projector and surround sound. Outside is a true rural retreat with half an acre of garden with barbecue, seating, swings and playhouse and surrounded by fields, yet in walking distance to two pubs.

Standerwick mentioned in the Domesday Book remains a compact settlement on the Somerset/Wiltshire boarder straddling the A36. It is some 20 minutes from Bath and 40 minutes from Salisbury. Numerous cycling and walking options are available. The village of Beckington is a short drive away; here there are pubs, a busy café and an award winning farm shop with further restaurant and café. The market town of Frome an exciting, quirky and charming place to visit, with a wealth of history, culture and natural beauty is just three miles away. Longleat House with its many facilities and events is just five miles away.
