Intriguing house with a tranquil garden
This picturesque house, mainly Tudor in style, has a beautiful courtyard and one surviving tower dating from 1347. The house has an interesting history and was involved in Jacobean court intrigue. It has been the home of the Brunner family since the 1930s and the interior, with some outstanding 18th-century plasterwork, is still furnished as a family home. The ground floor is on show to visitors. Outside are a Tudor wheelhouse, walled gardens full of old-fashioned roses and wisteria, an ornamental vegetable garden, maze and ice-house
