Lakeland yeoman farmer's house, with its tall cylindrical
chimneys, slate roof, oak mullioned windows and lime
rendered stonework. Across the road you will see the
wool barn with its spinning gallery which was used to
store the fleeces and is still in agricultural use today.
The Browne family lived in the house until 1943, they
were wealthy yeoman farmers.
Within the house you will find oak panelling and furniture
which as been carved by a member of the family or another,
