HISTORY: Hamstead Holt House was built in the late C18. It is shown in the 1877 first edition Ordnance Survey map as belonging to Kentbury Holt Farm, presumably a corruption of Kintbury, but changed its name to Hamstead Holt Farm by the time of the 1900 map. This has caused confusion with the neighbouring farm to the south-east which was known as Holt Farm in 1877 and Kintbury Holt Farm by 1900.

Hamstead Holt House is designated at Grade II for the following principal reasons:
* A handsome late C18 farmhouse which appears relatively unaltered externally.
