Construction work began in 1831 and probably continued in phases until 1848. On Redmayne’s death, the house passed through the hands of various owners until 1942 when it became a Youth Hostel. The grounds include a large coach house with a dovecote, a servants’ cottage, a pig sty, bee boles and a walled kitchen garden.
