The Old Manor House is a wonderful Grade II listed late Tudor property with lots of character built in the early 1600s of local sandstone, and is understood to have been lived in by a cousin of Oliver Cromwell.

Enormous character is provided by some original features including old timber doors, exposed beams and original joinery in the majority if principal rooms. The elegant reception rooms are well proportioned and the double aspect drawing room has an inglenook fireplace with bread oven and bacon loft chimney and a drinks cabinet recessed to one side. Both the drawing room and the dining room have oak parquet flooring; the morning room has been extended and to give views over the terrace and double doors out to the garden and the large breakfast kitchen has a triple aspect.

The fine Georgian staircase leads to the large landing and the generous master bedroom suite is very attractive, while the second and third bedrooms are both a good size. The detached cottage could provide additional bedroom accommodation if required.
