NOTES: The medieval hall was built between 1388 and 1400 for John Holland, Earl of Huntingdon. It was almost derelict when it was bought in 1925 by Leonard and Dorothy Elmhirst, who undertook its renovation. Dorothy Elmhirst was repsonsible for the creation of the gardens with the landscape designers Beatrix Farrand and Percy Cane. The Tiltyard is thought to be the remains of an Elizabethan water garden.
