Sweeney Hall
Now a hotel and wedding venue, this was a traditional Country House with attached farm. Functions of various types are hosted in the Barn and a temporary building in the original kitchen garden.

Sweeney Hall was a World War II auxiliary hospital that was used by the British Red Cross and St Johns Ambulance

The Current Georgian ashlar house in grey stone was built in 1805; the red brick Jacobean style extension dates from 1860. The first hall was built in 1640 by Thomas Baker.

The house is surrounded by a wide parkland, but a corner of this was co-opted as a small graveyard for the local non-conformists in the 17th century.

Far from being just a listed building, this is a group of listed structures of various dates:
