The Ancient Manor House, which dates from the 16th Century
This house is timber-framed and was built in the early 17th century. In contrast to medieval houses, it has no open hall. Instead, a brick chimney heats two of the ground floor rooms and one of the upper chambers. This revolutionary change in house planning took place in the mid 16th century. Pendean nevertheless retains some medieval features such as unglazed windows. The interior of the house is completely furnished.
