The main frame of the roundhouse would have been made of upright timbers, which were interwoven with coppiced wood - usually hazel, oak, ash or pollarded willow - to make wattle walls. This was then covered with a daub made from clay, soil, straw and animal manure that would weatherproof the house. The roof was constructed from large timbers and densely thatched. All of the domestic life would have occurred within the roundhouse.
The 861 square foot (80 square meters) house retains a wealth of period features such as Oak beamed ceilings, a beautiful Georgian range, striking Gothic style windows, as well as unique stained glass windows, surrounded by gardens on all sides.
