Home to the Sitwell family for nearly four hundred years, the Hall was built c1625 by George Sitwell and extended in 1793 by Joseph Badger for Sitwell Sitwell. The formal gardens were laid out in the late nineteenth century by Sir George Sitwell 4th Baronet, great-grandfather of the current owner. They include ornamental ponds, garden rooms, fountains and borders. The house is now lived in by Alexandra Sitwell and her husband Rick Hayward.
If you would like to visit the gardens using a mobility scooter or wheelchair we can provide a map of the accessible routes on arrival. The paths around the gardens are gravelled as well as grass, so please make sure your scooter will be suitable for these types of paths, and your wheelchair pusher is strong enough.
