Raddle Bank House dates from the 16th century, originally as an Inn known as The Baiting House where travellers stopped for sustenance, for both them and their horses, before ascending the very steep incline of Raddle Bank.
The name ‘Raddle' is derived from the redness of the local clay, traditionally used for polishing doorsteps.
Subsequently, the estate became a hop farm and remained so until the late 1960's.
We, Polly and Graham, have lived here since 2001 and are very enthusiastic about the very wonderful countryside and many amenities on offer here. There is so much to do and see!
There are National Trust properties at Berrington Hall and Croft Castle ; English Heritage sites at Stokesay and Eastnor Castle . Many wonderful gardens which are open to the public are all very nearby.
The Severn Railway begins at Kidderminster and travels through Bewdley to Bridgnorth.
Midland Safari Park is only 30 minutes drive and numerous antique shops are situated in the lovely towns of Ludlow and Leominster.
