Court House is a historic Grade 1 house, its name deriving from the originalv court room which is still in existence. Reputedly, Charles 1 stayed during the siege of Gloucester and it is documented that the church and Court House were attacked during the Cromwellion Rebellion. Apparently during the battle (1643-4) a bullet was fired at the house in the oak front door.
The entrance to the house is accessed via a fine oak front door leading to a staircase hall with wide oak floor boards. The kitchen/ breakfast room has recently been modernised to a high standard with built in cooking appliances and white goods. From the kitchen there are wonderful westerley views. From the hallway leads into one of the sitting rooms with sumptous furnishings and fireplace, Library/snug with its own fireolace and bay windows with views to the gardens, Leading onto the study, seperate dining room with wonderful beams and panelling along with a large open fireplace. The Court Room ( Drawing room) leads on from the dining room and is an incredible room with high ceilings, mullion windows and stencilled oak panelling which is believed to be a rare example of its kind and we have been reliably informed Hampton Court is the second. The impressive fireplace is ornately carved and gives the room a wonderful focal point.
On the lower floor steps lead down to a wine cellar and the boiler room .
Gardens and Grounds
The house lies adjacent to St. Marys Church through a pair of automatic double gates leading to a driveway with ample parking.
The gardens to the house are tiered on various levels. There is a wonderful stone terrace to the west of the gardens which offers good access from the kitchen making it perfect for sitting out and enjoying an early evening drink or alfresco evenings.
