This ancient house is the seat of the Camoys family, one if the great Catholic families of England. I come here regularly to a vintage car rally that is held each summer but only visited the house in 2015 for the first time, much to my shame. Well worth a look. Priests hidey holes, persecution of the Catholics by Henry VIII, lots of history and the development of the property from a long barn to the wonderful house you see today.
Lovely place to go for a walk. Delightful house.
