Lower Rudloe Farm is a 17th century Grade II Listed farmhouse with an extensive range of outbuildings set around a central yard. A single-track lane leads to the driveway of the property which gives access to the large parking area with garaging and storage buildings which opens into the central original farmyard.
At one side is a single storey pitched roof building, originally the milking parlour and pigsty, now transformed into four well-presented self-contained en-suite rooms with kitchenettes. The other side of the yard is an original two-storey stone built barn, now arranged as a cosy bar, informal self-service shop, boiler room and storage, above which is a superb open-plan apartment, again being self-contained with a decked patio area, known as the Crow’s Nest.
At the far end of the yard, allowing for privacy from the income-earning accommodation, is the main house. Originally a farmhouse with later additions and having period charm and character with rooms across three floors and extending into original barns at one side. It has superb views across the gardens and grounds and across the valley to Bath in the distance.
A track leads between the main house and the barns at one side up to a large open plan agricultural barn, with potential to turn into further residential accommodation should one wish (subject to planning).
At the back of the house is a level, landscaped southwest facing garden which leads onto and overlooks the paddocks beyond. A second driveway leads down off the lane to the agricultural barn and into the woodland where there is also a further parking area. The woodland is well known for its wild truffles and the grounds are teeming with animal and bird life, being set in such a private and rural setting, whilst having excellent communications to Bath, Corsham and Chippenham. One of the fields is ancient limestone grassland that is rich in wildflowers (such as moon daisies, common spotted orchids and cowslips). This habitat used to be the main land use in the Bybrook Valley when the woollen industry was at its peak. As the UK has lost 97% of flower-rich meadows, the current owners have managed this field by careful sheep grazing and worked to diversify the other fields using green hay. Grasslands with a wide range of native plant species provide much better nutrition for livestock, support butterflies and insect pollinators as well as storing significant amounts of carbon deep within their soils. Under Defra's new Environmental Land Management Scheme, landowners can get £646/ha/year in 5-year agreements to manage species-rich grassland. Land that is within this scheme will be eligible for Agricultural Property Relief and exempt from relevant inheritance tax.

This is a remarkable setting, perched on the edge of, and overlooking, the beautiful and undulating Bybrook Valley with Bath in the distance with a southwest facing elevation. The valley is well regarded for walking and riding and is teaming with wildlife.
Lower Rudloe is a rural hamlet, yet only 2 miles from Corsham, a pretty market town having all your day-to-day shopping facilities, good pubs and restaurants, whilst being set between the city of Bath and the large town of Chippenham, both having mainline rail access to London Paddington.
Bath offers excellent schooling, shopping, leisure, and sporting facilities, as well as being famed for its Georgian architecture.

The next steps...

Before making an offer on a property you will want to consider your financial situation, your income and outgoings.

Will you finance the purchase of your next property from the sale of an existing property which can put you in a chain, arrange a mortgage through your bank or buy the property outright.
To help you finance your next property purchase, we have a long established relationship with an independent mortgage broker who can discuss your situation with you.

Remember that having a 'mortgage decision in principle' can make you a more attractive buyer when you make an offer on a property. Contact our mortgage advisers for free, no obligation and impartial advice.
Some advantages of a broker are:

  • They do all the legwork for you, working on your behalf with the lender
  • They compare wholesale mortgage rates from a large number of banks and lenders all at once
  • Wholesale interest rates can be lower than retail (bank branch) interest rates
  • You get more loan options because they work with numerous banks and lenders
  • Brokers can finance tricky deals because of their knowledge and various lending partners
  • Are typically easier to get in contact with, less bureaucratic.

However with your bank maybe able to:

  • Build off existing relationship (discounts if you have a checking/saving account)
  • You may already know the banker who will handle your mortgage
  • Perhaps more trustworthy, more accountable than a smaller shop
  • Lower interest rates in some cases
  • Ability to add mortgage to existing banking profile and make automatic payments from linked account.

When it comes to making an offer on a property a bit of negotiation is to be expected, however don't offer so little that you end up in a lengthy negotiation process, as you might lose the property altogether if someone else makes a higher bid.

If other offers have been made on a property we aren't legally able to tell you what they are, but we may indicate if they were close to the asking price.
