The house stands proudly in a elevated position with a most pleasing outlook over its Parkland with other land and far reaching views to the west.

House School, Royal Grammar School and Kings in Worcester.

Transport links are mainly via the M5, M6/M6 toll with Wolverhampton railway station having direct links to London Euston taking approximately 1 hour 45 minutes.

onto the wall of walled garden and providing a potting
shed, kennels and general garden store.

Grounds and Gardens

The beautiful gardens and grounds were laid out and landscaped when the house was built in early 19th Century and little has changed since that date. There are wonderful matured trees such as cedars, beech, oak and others which majestically adorn the large lawned areas, terraces, pathways and herbaceous borders. The swimming pool complex is discretely set into
a sunken garden surrounded by borders and mature
shrubs. There is a hard tennis court, in need of repair,
well away from the house and on the left as you come
