The house has passed through the hands of 15 generations of the Petre family, who continue to own and occupy it today.

The Hall stands in open countryside, one mile from the village of Ingatestone and retains its original Tudor form and
appearance, with mullioned windows, high chimneys, crowstep gables and oak-panelled rooms.

It is surrounded by ten-acres of enclosed gardens comprising extensive lawns, a walled garden and a stew pond.

Wander around both the beautiful house and delightful gardens and finish with tea and cake in the tearooms.
