The oldest inhabited private house in England

Posted on

The lovers of things of historic interest are always on the look-out for anything that retains the patina of its past, whether it’s an object or a building full of memories that wears its shabbiness with a charming pride.

Standing the test of time, these buildings offer unique treasures and insights to their occupants. One such place can be found near Bristol in the English county of Somerset, and is known as Saltford Manor House.
