The Old Rectory is a very pretty Grade II* listed house. It is predominantly south facing and is constructed of dressed Northumbrian stone under a slate roof. It incorporates a late 14th/15th century peel tower and has been extensively altered and added to over the centuries. The ground floor accommodation includes a number of well-proportioned reception rooms, each with original sash windows and panelled shutters. At the front door is a flagged entrance hall off which is a cosy sitting room. Glazed double doors lead to the main hall and its elegant 18th century staircase.
Both the dining room and the drawing room have large bay windows which make the most of the wonderful views across the garden and the countryside beyond. The main staircase leads up to the landing which serves the 2 main bedrooms on the south side of the house. A second staircase leads to a more extensive landing giving access to the remaining 6 bedrooms. Subject to obtaining the necessary consents the north wing of the house could be adapted/converted to create a self-contained flat/annexe.
A garage forms part of the north wing, whilst close by is an open-fronted timber framed garage. There is also a timber stable block with 3 loose boxes and tack room. Adjacent to this is a feed room where the yard outside forms a sheltered terrace, bordered by Yew hedges. Other outbuildings include a large stone built out house suitable for storage. There is also a hay shed, a dog kennel, log store and greenhouse.
