The land that the hall now sits on is thought to have provided accommodation to Henry Tudor the night before the battle of Bosworth Field; the last significant battle in the War of the Roses, and the chapel is thought to date back to the twelfth or thirteenth century.

Four centuries on, the hall still stands regally in its grounds, with many sensitive additions and improvements, and now providing a magnificent family home to the present owners. The hall offers potential purchasers a range of possibilities in terms of its uses, having extensive accommodation within the hall itself, as well as a separate annexe, numerous stables and outbuildings, and the private chapel within the grounds, and now linked to the main hall.
