Features

Little Oak Hall is suffused with history. In 1198 the estate was home to a community of Cistercian monks, part of Cleeve Abbey. Since the departure of the monks, the site of Little Oak Hall has seen a variety of uses from a feudal farm to a residential school for girls.
An even wider variety of residents have passed through the grounds, including a magistrate who possibly used the property as a courtroom, to war time evacuees and an eccentric German Count. It was the latter who was responsible for many of the beautiful garden features which include the Italian garden and the various water features that can be found within the grounds.
Through the centuries, events and people have shaped the story – and the appearance – ofLittle OakHall, giving it a unique warmth and soul that is immediately feltas you enter this beautiful building.
