About Lee Ruddle
The last 5 generations of our family have lived in Steeple Ashton. Having lived in Australia for two years we were still 'drawn' home. We thoroughly enjoy the rural aspect of our home and consider ourselves very privileged to live here. It has afforded us the opportunity to ‘live our dream’ with our family and much loved pets.
Lee Ruddle purchased this Cottage in 2007
Why Lee Ruddle chose Steeple Ashton
My husband and I purchased this property in 2007, having fallen in love with it some 30years previous, it needed full renovation to become what we feel is the perfect family home. Following our children ‘flying the nest’ we decided to utilise the space and spilt the property in two and create a self contained holiday home. Prior to owning this property we had renovated another holiday home in the heart of Steeple Ashton and thoroughly enjoyed this experience.
What makes this Cottage unique
For many of us the hustle and bustle of everyday life is constant. However both we and our guests get to enjoy the relaxing, rural environment that this home has to offer with the added bonus of relaxing in the hot tub and gazing up at the stars. Its situation means we are surrounded by wildlife at its finest, enhanced by a brook running through the centre of the garden. Yet all of this is within a short walk of Steeple Ashton and all its amenities.

Fab little cottage, it is down a farm path which was no good for our modified car but other than that fab!

Lovely cottage in a great location!
We were really impressed with the cottage from start to finish. We received excellent directions from the owners and Lee was there to meet us when we arrived. The cottage was really cosy, clean and comfortable with everything we needed for a great stay including the hot tub! Nothing was too much trouble for the owners and they gave us some great tips on places to visit. Would definitely recommend the cottage and the surrounding areas.
