Eltringham House was probably originally a 16th century bastle, but it was altered and extended in the late 17th or early 18th century. The oldest part of the house is an east-west block with large stone rubble walls. A new front was added around 1790, and the inside was fully restored in the late 19th century. This is a Grade II Listed Building protected by law.
