The Old Hall is a combination of medieval mud & stud with superb inglenook fireplaces, which over the years has had additions so that the hall now has a blend of elegant Georgian features married to the cosy atmosphere of a country house. Everything is further enhanced by the Hall sitting in 5 acres of mature woodland & beautifully tended gardens, allowing for recreation of either walks, relaxation, croquet or an evening barbecue.
The Hall's tranquility and charm have remained unaltered over time. It was always a love and inspiration for Sir John Betjeman and Charles Tennyson,on their many visits in the 50's. (Charles Tennyson is the grandson of Alfred, Lord Tennyson)
