An unusual historic building, but not a massive amount to see. If you are in the area the ruins are worth a 30 minute visit.

A little off the beaten path, these ruins are charming, set in a chocolate box village, and well worth going to see. The information board is useful and help the visitor place how the rooms were set out.

A charming little ruin, free of charge so worth a visit. The site is not manned but there are information boards explaining the history of the rectory

Look, it's a simple ruin, but free to enter and interesting to see, so if your passing and have a spare few minutes definitely worth a quick visit. There's a decent pub in the village once your done.

For those who are not really interested it is not worth visiting. however for those interested in history it is a very interesting place. Some more interpretation would make a large difference

The Rectory ruins are worth a look and it is also worth visiting the old church just across the road. You can park on the road outside and enter the rectory through an old gate.
