Delightful medieval fortified house, which has been the home of the Strickland family for more than 750 years. The Stricklands were Roman Catholics when it was unfashionable, but survived - and their house is packed with fascinating portraits, furnishings - and some unique panelling. Outside, there is an unusual limestone rock garden, pastures, woodland, orchards, a kitchen garden, bee hives and a charming lake.
