Originally built in 1614 by the Soame family as a free school for poor children in the local villages, the property remained in use as a school well into the 19th Century and was sold off as residential accommodation in 1885 by the charity commissioners. The property has since passed down through various branches of the family and was completely renovated in 1993 by the then renowned Hogg Builders. The property features reminisce from its time as a free school with the old podium and several desks still in use within the property and offers a range of further period features including wide board oak floors, fireplaces and authentic Victorian décor
