An amazing Tudor house with a guided tour with enthralling details on the builder and previous owners. The wall paintings from early 1500s are outstanding and probably unique.

This beautiful house shows how domestic buildings have been altered and developed over the years. A huge amount of care and love has gone into this beautiful house with medieval wall paintings which alone make a visit worthwhile .
