Splendid example of a Carolean manor house built by the Whitmore family
circa 1607. Surrounded by a moat and well-kept formal gardens. Square
on plan; red brick with stone dressings. The principal facade has 3 curvilinear
gables, the centre one being recessed and having a round bay carried up
2 storeys with balustraded parapet; stone mullioned and transomed windows,
some with old lattice glazing. Attic gable windows have ornamental pediments
with swags and side scroll panels. Tiled roof and tall Tudor chimneys
with coupled stacks. Interior: Plaster strapwork ceilings, overmantels
and panelling largely original or well restored; original staircase.
The place was well restored circa 1870. Approached by a short avenue
