Leigh Barn

Overview
Barn -
5 Bedrooms , 5 Bathrooms , Sleeps 12
Bradford-on-Avon, Wiltshire, England
The History
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, which has 14th Century origins. It was a wealthy estate and the depth of the well in the courtyard indicates that it was a property of significant importance during its time. 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 main kitchen. It was converted in 2006 and has been completely refurbished by the current owners.
