Longbridge Hall home swap

Longbridge Hall is a lovely, old, Grade-2 ‘listed' Victorian school, built in 1873. It was converted to a stylish, spacious, comfortable home in 2006, combining the original character of the Victorian school with contemporary design.

Our home is light, spacious and relaxing. We have a large, modern and very efficient wood-burning stove in the main sitting room, which also has its original full-height windows. The contemporary dining-kitchen has all modern appliances and a large table to seat six comfortably.

On the mezzanine bridge above the sitting room there are three double-bedrooms (one is en suite) which are all light, airy and well furnished. The main bedroom has a lovely view of the village church. There are three bathrooms with showers; one also has a jacuzzi bath.

Outside we have a small, sunny, well-stocked garden with a raised patio for outdoor eating, as well as three private parking spaces.

Our home is well cared for: we are responsible and considerate, and would extend this to any property we stayed in.

About the location

Church Langton is a picturesque village in South Leicestershire, in the middle of England. It is four miles from Market Harborough (rated this year by The Sunday Times at 34 in the the top 50 towns to live in, in England). We are surrounded by typical 'shire-county' countryside. Locally there are excellent village pubs, country- and canal-side walks, and a fine cricket pitch — you can experience life in a typical English village.

We are extremely well-positioned for exploring and travelling further afield. We are close to the beautiful county of Rutland which has the gorgeous old towns of Oakham and Uppingham. Hourly trains to St Pancras international take 60 minutes or less (many people commute daily to London from here). Stratford-on Avon is 1 hour, Oxford and Cambridge under 2 hours by car. Leicester city (now famous for Richard III) is 30 minutes away.
