The house, which is not open to the public, is the historic seat of the Barons Feversham and their families. It has 300 acres of parkland and was built in 1713 before being rebuilt in 1895 following a fire.

In 2012 it was used for the filming of another period drama, Parade's End, starring Benedict Cumberbatch.
