- Getting Here
An avenue of double oaks leads to a mellow Tudor building with fine detailing, surrounded by a large, fish-filled moat with two outer moats. The site dates from the Anglo-Saxon period.
The house has recently undergone an award-winning restoration. The adjoining barn, also sixteenth century and earlier, is one of the longest in the country, part of which is thought to have been an early court hall. Fine garden setting.
The garden with courtyard following sixteenth-century footings, formal pool garden and knot garden, has all been designed by Xa Tollemache.
