Rookery House is a long, low building of local rubble stone rendered over in front. It consists of two linked buildings, one originally a cottage, the other a pony stable and trap house. The southern end contains an upper cruck truss made from re-used full crucks, and an associated timber cross wall. It is thought to have been built around 1700 as grooms quarters. The northern end of the house, containing the stable and trap house for the Hall, was built separately, probably in the early 19th century. (1).
