Dating from 1884, The Old Vicarage is built of rusticated Cotswold stone with dressed stone quoins and tall mullioned windows which let in lots of natural light. The house has a private winding drive and stands on rising ground with a south westerly aspect.

The property has an impressive entrance hall which serves all three main reception rooms, some of which benefit from bay windows, and a fantastic stone mantelpiece graces the dining room. A back staircase was removed in the 1960s and could provide an ideal place to build a large, light-filled kitchen/breakfast room.

Accommodation is over three floors and comprises: entrance hall, drawing room, dining room, study, breakfast room, pantry, utility room, larder, cloakroom, cellar, seven bedrooms and three bathrooms.
