Brook House is a classic small country house believed to date back to the early 17th century, with 19th and 20th century alterations and additions. The property was also more recently completely refurbished in 2007.
Internally the house is well proportioned with a fantastic kitchen/breakfast room at the heart of the house with its original 17th century fireplace. Three of the main reception rooms overlook the gardens, as does the conservatory; in particular the main drawing room looks far out over farmland, with the pretty village church in the distance.
On the first floor are the master bedroom suite and three further bedrooms plus a family bathroom. The second floor has another large bedroom with a sitting area and dressing room. The games room and guest suite are at the west end of the house.
