Surrounded by stunning countryside, woodland, wildflower meadows and ancient hedgerows, the house was later bought by the Cadbury family (yes, those of chocolate fame). The house overlooks Hop Valley and contains incredible carved oak stairs, a grand dining hall and plenty of evidence/reminders from past residents and owners during its chequered history.
