The property

Believed to have origins in the 15th century, The Manor House is steeped in history with evidence of its vintage on display in the remains of wall paintings, decorative scrolls, inscriptions and motifs which have been uncovered across the years.

This timber-framed house has a wealth of character features throughout which include ancient timber plank doors, exposed beams, posts and bricks, inglenook fireplaces, along with tiled and wooden floors. The ground floor accommodation offers a drawing room to one side of the reception hall, with a family room beyond and a dining room, which is situated on the opposite side, and which leads through an inner hall and down steps into the kitchen. The kitchen is fitted with wall and base level units, with a range-style stove and has a door to access to the rear garden.

Two staircases give access to the first floor, where there are four bedrooms and two bathrooms. There are step level changes across this floor and the landing area features an alcove which is suited to a study or office area.
