General Information -

The Old Hall appears to date from the mid 17th / early 18th Century with later additions and is predominantly of brick with stone dressings and tiled roofs. The earliest parts of the house are particularly notable with the north-east section showing stone coped gables with kneelers, finials and flush stone quoins and with chamfered mullioned windows. The adjoining 18th century wing has a most attractive central doorway with ashlar doorcase with segmental pediment.

The Old Hall has been listed Grade II for its architectural and historical importance.

The accommodation is beautifully proportioned, ideal for family occupation or entertaining, and with lovely views from many rooms.
