The house, known as the Old Gatehouse, was probably constructed from re-used medieval masonry in the C19, on medieval foundations and it is occupied and in fair repair. The western end of the house is built into in situ medieval fabric, which is ruinous and in need of repair. This entry relates to the non-occupied ruins of the Gatehouse.
