Herein is an atypical site in so many ways including being a relatively intact knight's home; it's quite unusual for English Heritage (I'm a big fan gobbling up options and thrice renewed member) to offer a free site that isn't essentially a mere remnant, derelict...More

Gorgeous house that I would happily live in if I could add a few modern conveniences :-) Beautiful setting and you can do a circular walk too. Always worth seeing if the lavender project next dorset is open too.

Happened to see this on line, worth a visit if you are already in the area but I wouldn't drive miles as only small, we only stayed for about 10minutes but definitely worth a look. Free parking and admission.

This small, but interesting old manor house is an absolute delight. Just tucked away a few hundred yards from the main road this is worth a look. Furthermore you can then enjoy a lovely walk by the river complete with old barns, a hydrowater wheel...More

A sensitively restored building in an idyllic riverside location. Small, but lots of little details to enjoy. Check out the beautiful hand- made clear glass in the leaded lights!

It's not large but it's interesting and although it's English Heritage it's free to visit and worth stopping by. Thought to date from the 14 century the wooden structure supporting the stone and tile roof is quite something
