Find out more about us

The Duke of Somerset’s Estates

Two estates nestled in glorious West Country countryside in two picturesque villages of Maiden Bradley and Berry Pomeroy. A great place to live and work, the Estates have been owned and managed by The Duke of Somerset’s family since 1554. The Estates are a family business that continuously reinvests in its assets to improve the thriving communities that the Estates are privileged to be part of.

Traditionally managed, the Estate regularly has properties to let. The portfolio range includes artists studios, commercial spaces for start ups, storage, garages and residential properties.  These fine properties are located in the desirable rural locations.


Nestled amongst beautiful countryside

The Bradley Park Estate

The Bradley Park Estate is centred on the village of Maiden Bradley, close to Bruton and Frome and in the West Wiltshire Downs, which is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Maiden Bradley village has many amenities that you would expect of a traditional English village – a pub (with guest rooms, good pub food and a bowling alley), recreation ground, community allotment garden and village hall all being popular features of this thriving village.

Incorporating woodland walks, the Estate features in-hand farms, tenanted farmland, residential properties and commercial property to rent – get in touch to join our waiting list to be kept informed of rental opportunities. The Potting Shed is a beauty and holistic studio offering luxurious massage, beauty and waxing treatments set within the walled garden of Bradley House.

Maiden Bradley is also the backdrop to the much-cherished family home of The Duke of Somerset for over 300 years. We welcome House Tours by prior appointment with the Estate Office individually or in small parties of up to 15 people at a time. A small charge is made for each visit. 


A range of commercial properties, stunning residential properties and mixed farmland

The Berry Pomeroy Estate

The Berry Pomeroy Estate is within the South Devon Area of Natural Beauty, located just outside of the ever-popular Totnes. Berry Pomeroy Castle is a romantic medieval ruin and a key feature of this special estate. The castle is managed by English Heritage due to its architectural importance and many centuries of history.

Berry Pomeroy Castle is a popular tourist destination, with many visitors coming to the area to enjoy the castle ruins and take in the pleasant surroundings. The Berry Pomeroy Castle café is a particular draw, serving traditional cream teas and fine roast lunches.

The grounds and surrounding estate are a mixture of commercial properties, stunning residential properties and farmland. We keep a waiting list for properties, so please contact us to be notified when properties become available.
