Built of Grinshill stone with battlemented parapets, mullioned windows, oriels etc; southern front dominated by a central tower; porte cochere to the east; end facade of old C18 house masked by false chapel-like window. To the north, a symmetrical arrangement of sashes makes the earlier building easily recognizable. Principal rooms have typical mid-C19 "Gothic" decoration; plaster groined ceilings; double staircase; marble mantlepieces brought from old Dorchester House; good C18 staircase in kitchen wing. The present Dining Room, former Chapel, probably altered circa 1870. The park is one of the finest in the county; terrace over-looking Severn Valley; hanging woods to a great height lining steep gorge of river. Reference, Country Life.
