Taylors apartments are grade II listed conversions of the original coaching houses and stables with extensive grounds and long term car parking.

Taylors records date back to 1255, around the time of King John and the Magna Carta. Taylors is a beautiful picturesque house, still retaining as a nucleus the timber open hall of the mid 13th century and also an oak screen of roughly gouged-out timbers and moulded beams of the same exceptionally early date.

There are beautiful panelled rooms of later date and the 15th, 16th and 17th century additions all present very interesting features.
