Tudor in Style, there has been a house on the site since Roman times. Much rebuilding in early 19C.There are 8 bedrooms let - Main Four Poster bedroom ensuite, with others ensuite or Private facilities. (Tarrif and brochure available by snailmail). The house has a Wedding Licence to marry people here and we are able to provide small conferences as well as accommodation or "away from it all" business meetings.
We started a vineyard here in the 1970s to prove Romans made wine in the UK this far north. Originally it was home to Gilbertine Monks - dedicated to the education and protection of battered and abused women in 11th century. Nothing new under the sun! Hall given by John O'Gaunt to Gilbert of Normandy for use as monastry and attached to that at Sempringham in Norfolk.
