This stunning house is a national treasure. The elderly owner is charming but a little eccentric. He will tell you about the house but really this building should be under the care of The National Trust or similar organisation. The Tudor ceilings are beautiful. Don't...More

How do we go about getting English Heritage interested in this property? It's obviously too much for Mr Pearson now he is getting on in years and needs more money to maintain it and bring it back to lif.
