The Old Vicarage is an architecturally noted Grade II listed property dating back to 1861. Pevsner said of the house that it was ‘quite a credible essay in Gothic-cum-Tudor style’.

The house was reputedly built by the 4th Duke of Northumberland using the same craftsmen employed on Alnwick Castle. The house is now a terrific period property with well-proportioned accommodation over two floors with five bedrooms and has lots of period detail including stone mullioned windows, ceiling cornice and roses, timber flooring and period fireplaces throughout.
