Longbridge Cottage description

This charming cottage is part of the grounds of Longbridge House, an historic house, famed locally for being where the Duke of Monmouth stayed, before and after the Battle of Sedgemoor in 1685.

The accommodation, which is designed for 2 people, retains many original characteristics with a high vaulted ceiling, beams and thick stone walls. There is also a stylish, open-tread, spiral staircase to a vaulted, galleried bedroom which looks down onto a gorgeous chandelier and over the main living area, giving a great sense of space.

Steps lead to a sunny south-facing decked area complete with Roman well, views over surrounding buildings, and backing onto the owner’s garden with a vegetable patch, fruit trees and chickens!
