It incorporates a medieval hall house, which has been extended on the south-west side. The original timber-framed house, which appears to date from the 14th, or 15th century, once had an open hall, and a jetty, or overhang at one end. It takes up the whole of Updown Cottage and extends into Well Cottage. A floor was inserted in the old hall, and the main chimney added in the 16th century, and the whole was encased in brick and tile in the 18th century. Of the original house, most of the main framework still survives, as can be best seen inside the bedrooms. The roof also is largely original. Elham Study
