Bridgewater Manor: History, Serenity and Elegance

Nestled amidst the captivating beauty of Somerset West, Bridgewater Manor embodies tranquillity. Located in the heart of the village, the Manor House was built in 1700. More recently, this historic building was converted into an office for staff and a dining area residents. 

The beauty of Bridgewater Manor lies in its history and one of its striking features, the Fleur Gate. A beautiful wrought-iron gate embellished with intricate leaves and grape detailing. The gate was built in honour of Fleur Secretan, a young woman who passed away at the age of 18 and was known to be the companion of Mrs. Rockey, the first owner of Bridgewater Manor. During the construction of the activity centre, the ‘Fleur Gate’ was kept safe and re-erected in the newly landscaped garden. A painting of the Fleur Gate and a tribute to young Fleur hang in the Manor House passageway. 

Bridgewater Manor’s 140 homes boast modern amenities, stylish finishes, and thoughtfully designed living spaces that promote comfort and convenience. Residents can enjoy daily strolls through the village’s pride and joy, the meticulously landscaped gardens and picturesque duck pond, all while soaking up the vivid hues of local flora.
