The Tower is an enchanting property and one of the finest examples of Gothic architecture in the country. It is a Grade I Listed folly and considered to be the tallest of its kind in the world.

The restoration won the prestigious Angel Award for its quality of craftsmanship. Linked by a fully serviced lift and complimented by two turret staircases.
