Around 1.6 acres including service buildings; broadly rectangular. Lies to the NE of the house at a distance of 400m. adjoining the stables block to the south. Orientation NW-SE on level ground at the north end, sloping gradually from the centre towards the SE corner.
At the time of our research (2015) the site was for sale with Murrays of Oakham and Innes England of Nottingham with outline development planning permission for housing.
The walls are still standing but all interior buildings and frames were demolished some time ago. Mounds indicating their position are present but overgrown. Long grass and brambles cover the whole area.
