A Brief History The Small House originally formed part of Caynton Hall which was built in the early 1800's by the Yonge family on land previously belonging to the Beckbury Estate, and was subsequently sold onto the Legge family who retained the house for nearly 100 years. Having seen use as offices in recent times, it has been returned to an impressive family home by the current owner. Believed to have been used as guest accommodation for the hall, The Small House is very much its own country house, set in its own gardens and grounds with private access.
