Great Potheridge House
The house, set in six acres of land, is the remaining wing of General George Monke’s mansion house. It is a grade 1 listed house, with an oak panelled dining room, the original staircase with a painted ceiling, a huge fireplace with a log burner in the lounge and lots of history to be discovered. There is a barn complex too, just across the car park.
Our current capacity is approximately seventy five students plus staff.
