Sheepscombe House


Sheepscombe House is a rare gem that sparkles in a quintessentially English valley, a welcoming and cosy family home yet displaying impeccable taste and style; and quite private as well.

Sheepscombe House overlooks the picturesque village, and valley, of Sheepscombe in one of the most beautiful parts of Gloucestershire.

Sheepscombe House is the major part of a magnificent ‘petite’ Georgian Manor House set in a stunning location surrounded on two sides by its own fields. The new owners have completely recreated the interiors with impeccable taste and style to create a comfortable and relaxed haven in the valleys; so we are awaiting new photography hence why there are few interior images. But those of you who remember it from before will not be disappointed, Sheepscombe has been reborn more stylish than ever.

Ideal for family or friends holidays it is only 1hr 30m from London Paddington and with easy road access. Sheepscombe features a Drawing Room with open fireplaces, dramatic Cinema Room, music room, kitchen breakfast room and a conservatory dining room that opens out onto a private and sunny courtyard garden. And with great walks on the doorstep, it is pet friendly.

Additional Information

Sheepscombe House is a rare gem that sparkles in a quintessentially English valley. The major part of a small Georgian manor house transformed into a welcoming and cosy family home yet displaying impeccable taste and style; and private as well. The house – with its large child welcoming gardens, wild meadows, an incredibly romantic, yet practical, swimming pool and valley side tennis court – is hidden away behind electronic security gates to create a very secure and private environment yet a walk away from the local country pub.

Sheepscombe House has generous living and entertaining space over three floors with an elegant double drawing room that opens out onto the private rear terrace garden. The kitchen breakfast room features both a six-ring double oven range cooker as well as a wood fired Rayburn range, and is totally equipped for the ambitious amateur or professional chef. This leads into out into the modern conservatory dining room that in turn opens out onto the private terrace that is equipped for outdoor dining. There is also a second panelled dining room between the kitchen and hall.

There are five bedrooms and three bathrooms plus a separate downstairs cloakroom. Sheepscombe is baby-friendly providing two cots and two high chairs. Sheepscombe has an amazing first floor Cinema Room where everyone can share an evenings entertainment or an afternoon of sports.

There are pretty gardens on three sides of the house and aside from the formal out door dining area – off the kitchen and conservatory dining room – plenty of spaces and areas to enjoy the stunning surroundings with a glass of wine and bowl of olives.

The swimming pool setting is sheltered and romantic and is fully equipped with loungers and dining furniture and a built in Pizza Oven. And as it is gated, safe for pets and young children. Next door to the swimming pool is the full size all-weather tennis court with great views across the valley.

Surrounded on two sides by its own fields there is plenty of space for children and your dog to run wild.
