Bradley House's history and features

Bradley House is the historic family Home of the Dukes of Somerset, built in 1688 after the land was given by King Henry VIII to honour his 3rd wife, Jane Seymour.  Her brother Edward was then created 1st Duke of Somerset.  The house was reduced in size in 1821 but continues to be kept by the family.  The House retains many historical and artistic heirlooms from the family’s past adventures.   Today the house is available to rent for private and corporate events and becoming one of the South West's most popular event venues.
