Sections of the Hall date back to the mid-15th century, with the facade built by Richard Powys c.1720, concealing a Grade I listed C-shape Elizabethan mansion house, of which chimney breasts remain.
The principal suite, built c.1690, has a Carolean undercut plaster ceiling “among the best of the late 17th century anywhere in East Anglia” (Pevsner). In the early 20th century it also became a Red Cross wartime hospital and convalescent home, while today it is known as a famous cookery school, restaurant and hotel. Robert Carrier & Ruth Watson were the most recent owners and were instrumental in several major renovations.
