Sarah Hunt of Savills in Cranbrook quotes a guide price of £3.25m for Grade II-listed Great Engeham Manor at Woodchurch, near Ashford, Kent.

The manor exudes character and charm, with an abundance of oak timbers and beams. Generously proportioned reception rooms include an elegant panelled drawing room that opens onto the formal dining room, the latter forming part of the original Wealden hall house.
