14th-century moated gatehouse and gardens. The superb gatehouse is what remains of Boarstall House (demolished 1778). It was built by John de Haudlo in 1312, both as defence for his house and as an expression of his status.

Although updated in 1615 for use as a banqueting pavilion or hunting lodge, and to reflect the latest taste, it retained its medieval belfry, crossloops and crenulations. The exterior and many rooms remain virtually unchanged from that time.
