Other elevations of similar character, various windows. Interior has a good painted panelled room on ground floor occupying the eastern end of the old part of the house. The panels are small with raised mitred mouldings to the edges and are probably early C17. The fireplace has a late Stuart marble fireplace surround with a boloction moulded panel over. The well staircase is of late C17 date with turned balusters. There is a further panelled room, in oak, on the first floor. In the C14 it was the property of Aymer de Valence and his sister.
