History

Sand is a small stone Tudor house with Elizabethan (1590) and early-20th century additions and alterations. The site has been owned by the Huyshe family since 1560. There is a 15th-century hall house and thatched garden house dating from around 1600 in the grounds.

The Elizabethan garden was laid out by John Capel but contracted during farm tenancy between 1730 and 1908. The garden was extended in 1908 by Rowland Huyshe and re-landscaped by Mary Sheldon. The garden was further extended by Pat and Margaret Huyshe in 1970.
