Found beyond the pillared entrance Old Rectory House faces almost due south and has a most attractive facade, with partly dressed flintstone with small pane windows and part smooth rendered with square trellis supporting a mature climbing hydrangea, roses and jasmine. The core of the house is believed to date back several hundred years and exhibits a beautifully preserved cross beam ceiling in the sitting room and was later added to and remodelled to create a seven bedroomed family home. The reception hall with limestone tiled floor has an elegant turning staircase and doors leading to the dining room, which has a fireplace with cut stone mantelpiece and an inset woodburning stove, French doors and further door leading out into the gardens. On the other side of the hall the sitting room has a handsome Minster fireplace, cross beamed ceiling and windows overlooking the gardens.
