About The Area 
The "Temple" in the place name relates to the Knights Templar who held the manors of Cameley and Cloud around 1200. The 12th century Crusader church of St James stands a short walk away across fields with wall-paintings and a sculpture from the period.

Situation 
Temple Cloud is a village within the beautiful Chew Valley equally accessible to Wells, Bath and Bristol with all providing wide ranges of amenities and facilities. There is good road access and a half-hourly bus service to Bristol and Wells stops 50 yards from the gate. Mainline train stations are situated at Bath and Bristol and Bristol International airport is within a short drive. There are excellent state and independent schools in the area including Cameley Primary School in Temple Cloud (with a recent outstanding OFSTED report). Chew Valley Secondary School is highly regarded and Downside, All Hallows, Wells Cathedral School, Millfield and the Bath and Bristol schools are all in reach. Sporting amenities include several golf courses, a tennis club and sailing at Chew Valley Lake.

Description 
Temple Bridge Farm House is an attractive Grade II listed period home dating from circa 1680's. The property was acquired by our clients in 1996 and has undergone extensive works to not only modernise but to preserve the character and charm of the property. The afore mentioned character includes mullioned windows, flagstone floors, inglenook fireplace with bred oven, exposed beans and even a coffin hatch (used to move larger items of furniture upstairs!).

* 
Upon arrival at the property the extensive driveway leads past the front of the house and culminates at the generous parking area and the tractor barn, which contains two stables and a tack room. There are two entrances to the property a 'traditional' front door and a more conventional rear door which leads in from the parking area to the inner hallway.

** 
The principle rooms on the ground floor are accessed via the inner hallway. The sitting room which is located at the front of the house features a superb inglenook fireplace with a salt storage cupboard, this attractive fireplace currently houses a wood burning stove. The floor is flagstone and there is also a mullion window overlooking the front garden, a spiral staircase leads to the first floor. Next to the sitting room is the more formal drawing room, again with a wood burning stove, mullioned windows and a window seat. There is also a generous formal dining room, a farmhouse style kitchen breakfast room with an Alpha, this controls the hot water and central heating for the property in conjunction with cooking. Beyond the kitchen is the large utility area and the shower room.

The first floor is accessed via the spiral staircase within the sitting room. There are four bedrooms on the first floor and the family bathroom. A further spiral staircase from the first floor landing leads to the second floor and the stunning master bedroom with its exposed beams, at the far end of the master bedroom is a generous en-suite and access to the vast eaves storage.

Outside 
The property is approached via the long driveway. This leads to the parking/turning area and the tractor garage. Statements of excellence cannot begin to describe the garden.
