The views from the house are spectacular towards Irton Church and then to the mountains beyond. From the house you can walk to the church which has an ancient cross erected in the 9th Century. Look out for the plaque by the font dedicated to the memory of RW Skeffington Lutwidge, commissioner in lunacy who died from a blow to the head adminstered by a lunatic in Salisbury.
