The house was designed for Rupert and Lady Dorothy D’Oyle Carte in 1925 by Oswald Milne, a pupil of Sir Edwin Lutyens. Milne also designed the valley garden and it includes two terraces near the house linked by steps, herbaceous borders, specimen trees, tender plants from the Mediterranean, South Africa and New Zealand, the Gazebo walk, the Bowling Green and the Rill Garden. The garden is now owned by the National Trust.
