Mowbrays Farmhouse

The grade II* listed farmhouse lies at the heart of the Ickleton Conservation Area and is surrounded by listed buildings including the grade I listed church. Built in the late C15, with late C17 rebuilding and C19 alterations and additions. It owes its name to the family who by marriage came into possession of the manor, derived from land held by Dereham Abbey by 1279. It was the heirs of William de Beauchamp which descended through a female heir to the Mowbrays and at his death in 1368, John Mowbray of Axholme (Lincs.). Between 1543 and 1547, the manor was sold to the Crudd family and more recently in 1819, it was sold to Clare Hall. We gained planning permission and listed building consents for the modernisations, repair and alterations works inside and outside to the grade II* listed property. We worked closely with the district council conservation department to ensure the historic fabric was maintained and key features like the traditional panelling seen in many rooms was successfully restored.
