This 19th century country house has been remodelled and enlarged around earlier buildings. The earliest part of the building is part of the south range of the 13th century Priory buildings. These were first converted into a house in the 16th century and later remodelled in 1810 in Gothick style. The house was enlarged and remodelled between 1830 and 1837 by John Dobson. Inside the house are several early features, including a 13th century moulded arch, a 16th century barrel vault and 16th century blocked windows. This is a Grade II* Listed Building protected by law.
