Bitchfield Tower itself is a three-storey battlemented tower built in the 15th century by the Middleton family. In 1622, Robert Fenwick built a new manor house adjoining the tower and the 6-acre estate was acquired by Sir Charles Monck in 1802. It was in a state of ruin by 1930 but has since been restored. The Carriage House sits opposite Bitchfield Tower and was formerly the carriage house and stable for the grand manor house. Grade I listed, it retains many special features and has been sympathetically restored by the owners. The master bedroom retains a part-cobbled floor and the entire bedroom is made of the original stone and cobbles, including the walls. Along with beams throughout all rooms and some original windows and features, the property is spacious and furnished in contemporary taste with some expensive furnishings and fittings. Sheepskin rugs cover the long benches in the kitchen, and contemporary art and light fittings feature throughout the property. Porcelain handmade fired earth tiles have been used in the bathroom and kitchen, and the kitchen also has a double Belfast sink is installed in a central island unit. Oak floors throughout the living area, and stunning views can be seen from one side over open countryside, and views towards the tower from the other.
