Leigh Bake House is a quaint 14th Century Cottage and former Bake House, set within its own private walled garden in the picturesque town of Bradford on Avon. It sleeps 4 adults or a family of five in comfort with designer fabrics and thoughtful touches throughout. The log burning stoves makes for snug evenings in if you choose not to walk to a local pub. In the summer you can sit in the garden and listen to the cluck of hens as they lay you a free range egg! Leigh Barn was originally an 18th Century Tithe Barn, converted in 2006 and renovated to the highest standard in 2012, offering luxury accommodation for 12 people (13 using sofa bed). The style is open and airy French chic with personal touches throughout. Unlimited use of the state of the art gym and sauna is also included in the price. This Grade II listed ancient dwelling dates back to the 14th Century. The old bread oven and meat/ fish smoking oven are still evident and the old stone floor bears the marks of the axe where the wood was cut to fuel the fires. Leigh House is believed to date from 1574 and was part of a farm estate given by Elizabeth I to Robert Leigh. The property extends over 4.5 acres and includes the Tithe Barn and the Bake House. It was a wealthy estate in its day and the depth of the well in the courtyard indicates that it was a property of significant importance. In the early Eighteenth Century it was owned by Robert Taylor who lived in the main house and manufactured cheeses in the cheese loft, now a bedroom over the kitchen. It was converted in 2006 and has been completely refurbished by the current owners who have retained the original features, selected fine furnishings and original works of art. The Bake House is reached through an old latchet gate beneath arched boughs and opens into a courtyard with topiary trees, lavender beds and a pretty fountain tumbling into a pond of water lilies. Beautifully furnished, this compact cottage style home has been painted throughout with Farrow and Ball paints and has a comfortable 'L' shaped sofa and armchair to seat 5 and large TV with DVD. There is a cosy wood burning stove in the old fireplace with a window seat and curtains in Ian Mankin fabrics. There is a pull out dining table with 5 chairs The downstairs double bedroom has beamed ceilings and its own original fireplace (no longer in use). One window opens onto the courtyard whilst the other overlooks the potager and walled garden. There is an oak wardrobe, an oak framed bedstead and a little hand basin with fluffy white towels. The triple room upstairs has a spacious king sized bed along with a single bed under oak beamed ceilings, two oak bedside tables, chest of drawers and hanging space. A hand basin under the window looks down across the Victorian green house to the vegetable garden.. The little kitchen overlooks the central courtyard and has a gas hob, with electric oven and grill, a microwave and small fridge. A small tiled bathroom has a bath (with shower over), a hand basin and WC. The Old Dairy The old dairy has been renovated and boasts a fabulous sauna to seat 8 people, a shower, and a utility area with washer/dryer in one area. There is also some exercise equipment including stepping machine, treadmill and rowing machine. If exercise doesn`t excite you then you can relax on one of the 2 sofas and enjoy listening to music or watching TV. The state of the art sauna and gym is shared with those renting the barn and also the Owners. Leigh Barn: An 18th Century Tithe Barn converted to the highest standard offering luxury accommodation for 12 people (13 using sofa bed) in three double ensuite rooms, 1 family room accomodating 4 people in 2 doubles along with an ensuite, and one twin ensuite.
