Craycombe is "a jewel of a house" designed by George Byfield, built in 1791 with orangery, magnificent cedars, walled kitchen garden, pleasure gardens and small park. It was offered to let at £200pa in 1916 (£140 per week in today's money) and described in the particulars as the "favourite residence of H.R.H. the late Duc d'Aumale" when it was the centre of a 6,000 acre estate. Semi derelict in 1932; Sold to Lord Cobham in 1960 as dower house to Ragley Hall. Became country club. Now belongs to a Mr and Mrs Howard Dawes who run a herd of pedigree Highland cattle.
