Burghope Manor is one of the centre pieces of "Old Winsley" as it is referred to by local residents. The house is very well placed for easy access to Bath and to excellent schools including Winsley Primary School, Monkton Combe School and Prior Park College to name but a few. There are many great walks around Winsley, but one of our favourites is to go down the lane to the rear of the Bowls Club, which leads down to the Cricket Club from where you can walk down to Avoncliffe, taking in the stunning scenery. In the village is the highly regarded Seven Stars public house, a convenience store with Post Office, Doctors' Surgery and a popular farm shop and café. An excellent bus service runs to both Bath and nearby Bradford on Avon.


Burghope Manor has its origins dating back to circa 1317 with later additions to the original footprint. The oldest part of the house is Cruck construction. There have been a number of changes including in the 15th Century the addition of the stone front porch. Burghope Manor is attached and forms the larger portion of the house. There is a separate wing to the rear which does not intrude on the main house. The driveway to Burghope Manor is owned by the house and gives access to a second property which is set to the eastern end of the grounds.

The house has a wealth of period features including stone mullioned windows with a comprehensive range of leaded windows. The roof is tiled in Cotswold stone tiles and carries the classic degradation of sized tile from the pitch to the lower eaves. The house has the most beautiful chessboard tiled floor to the front porch which opens into a wonderful tessellated tiled hallway which runs through the majority of the house.

Entering the house, the grand panelled entrance hall leads through to a beautiful drawing room with double aspect and French doors. The hallway leads through to a secondary sitting room where there is a wonderful inglenook fireplace with ashlar surround inscribed in italics (believed to come from Cranmer's version of the "Great Bible") and then onto a charming dining room.

At the end of the hall is a wonderful kitchen with an excellent range of fitted units under quartz worktops, Lacanche oven and integrated appliances. A very useful utility room and ground floor bedroom and bathroom complete the ground floor.

An oak staircase with carved balustrade takes you up to the first floor where the master bedroom has wonderful garden views and en suite bathroom. There are six further bedrooms, four of which have en suite facilities and two attic rooms.


The gardens are secluded and beautifully laid out, mainly laid to lawn with mature hedging, well stocked borders and a variety of mature trees and shrubs. A paved terrace provides the perfect place to sit and entertain.

The gravelled driveway is privately owned, over which the neighbouring property has right of access. There is ample space for parking and a double garage with store.


Mains services connected.
