From Wikipedia

The house is a moated manor house built around 1465-1480 for Thomas Tropenell, a modest member of the landed gentry who made a fortune as a clothier. The independent hall is flanked by unusually symmetrical gabled cross wings, with oriel windows and lower gabled porches in the inner corners.  Part of a moat survives, but the forecourt has been opened up to the outside in a manner that changes its original inward-facing aspect.

Externally there is a garden with four “tree houses”, groups of four clipped yews which have grown together and been hollowed out inside to allow you to walk through. A feature of the church is the unusual “bellcote”, a stone belfry built on to the gable peak.
