Built in 1609 by Francis FitzHerbert, whose family still lives here. Over the centuries many wings have been added to the core structure of the house most notably by Joseph Pickford of Derby in the late 18th century and then, around 1900, by the eminent architect Arnold Mitchell who constructed the library and billiard room which protrude from the western side.

Enjoy an exclusive tour led by Sir Richard FitzHerbert who shows visitors around the house and grounds, including the 3017-volume library with nineteenth-century photo albums, his favourite room. Fine panelling and collection of old masters. Ten-acre garden and arboretum.
