The original house on this 3,000-acre estate was built for Sir Thomas Chicheley in the 1640s, rebuilt and added to over the years, and finally restored to its proper splendor today.

Lots to see and do. House is worth a look round as is the beautiful walled garden. If you want to walk a bit further the folly is worth a visit.
