Redbridge Cottage, a bailiff's home on the original Longleat Estate, dating from 1390, is a medieval property that has been lovingly updated for the 21st century and has featured on BBC1's Escape to the Country. Equipped to an exceptional standard, mixing the ancient with the modern, timber framed, inglenooks, and limestone elevations under pantile roofs combined with luxury bathrooms, underfloor heating, air-conditioning and entertainment facilities. In a building where previous occupants cooked on an open hearth and made themselves cosy in the 'solar', there is now space and comfort.

Five reception rooms along with spacious kitchen, shower room and utility make up the ground floor, while upstairs there are four bedrooms with a family bathroom and a galleried attic.
