Description

A 16th Century Manor House, remodelled in the ‘Jacobethan’ style and Grade 2* listed status. Comprised of 3 principle buildings, some ancillary buildings and a walled garden.

The principle buildings are the Manor house itself, which is a beautiful and ornate hamstone Manor, fronted by formal gardens and a sweeping drive and with Estate parkland to the rear of it’s rear lawns and Italianate garden.

The Mews, a hamstone stable block built in 1875, which features a large clock arch, through which there is an inner courtyard and three large arched stable double-doors, and other doorways opening from the courtyard.

And the “Hyde”, a RIBA award-winning residential conference facility built in 2009. It is a wooden clad and black-stained contemporary form that sits above the historic walled garden with views and a back-drop across the Somerset levels.

The wider 3,000 acre estate has an idyllic setting featuring parkland, farmland and woodland, a modern dairy, stone farm buildings that have been tastefully converted into offices and other historic thatched cottages and farms.
