Built in the early 16th century for Lord Sandys, Henry VIII's Lord Chamberlain, the house acquired a classical portico (the first of its kind) in the mid 17th century and contains a fascinating Tudor chapel with Renaissance glass, a Palladian staircase and a wealth of old panelling and fine furniture. Attractive grounds feature herbaceous borders and a wild garden with lawns, lakes and woodland walks. There is also a newly developed wetlands area.
