St Joseph’s Abbey & Mews is one of the County's finest historic conversions, just 400 yards along historic Church Street from village shops. Over the centuries, the eclectic Abbey buildings have been a Rectory; a Dominican convent and then a convent school.
The 12 differing properties include a magnificent 17th century stone house, tall 1930’s Gothic-influence timbered buildings and the attractive courtyard cottages, all inspirationally converted in 2002-4 by the award-winning Surrey company Michael Wilson Restorations.
The 5 acre maintained grounds are a delight to wander through with a serene lily pond & broad lawns that probably hosted croquet matches in the 1930’s.
Facing west across the private courtyard, number 10 St Joseph's Mews is an elegant Grade II Listed house, effectively rebuilt during the conversion as a character new property.
