Summary

A grade II listed U shaped sixteenth or seventeenth century house with eighteenth century alterations and additions. The right hand gable is timber framed with a jetty supported on carved wooden figures, one a warrior in scale armour. The left hand gable is of stone. In the centre is the former great hall, with its original entrance passage.. It is now a hotel.

Wood was in plentiful supply as a building material in Britain until the 17th century. It was therefore the most practical material for house building. Timber framed buildings consist of a wooden framework (usually oak) that was infilled to create solid walls. Infill material used included wattle and daub, lath and plaster, brick and weather board. Brick nogging, (brick infill) was often used in the 17th and 18th centuries to replace earlier wattle and daub or lath and plaster infill as it was longer lasting.
