A really interesting historic house in a beautiful setting with pleasant grounds, which are great to walk your dog. Not very exciting for youngsters unless they are particularly interested in architecture and the fixtures and fitting of historic houses. Can be reached by public transport but is a bit remote.

Picturesque medieval/Tudor moated manor house dating from 1340. Enlarged and developed over several hundred years the property incorporates many different styles and periods: Chapel, Crypt the Great Hall and all the other 70 odd rooms are set in a rectangle around a central courtyard.
