Chettle House
Just to let you know that Chettle House is no longer open to the public so you might want to remove reference to this as a place to visit from your website. Yours faithfully, Peter Bourke 12-06-2014

Chettle House was built in 1710 by Thomas Archer in place of an
Elizabethan house then occupied by the Chafin family. Chettle House was bought by the Castleman family in 1846. In 1946, Edward Castleman died and the house was inherited by his niece Esther Bourke, the grandmother of current owners, Peter and Fiona Bourke.

The house has no corners, all corners are rounded in common with the Archer style. It is thought to have taken some 25 years to build, with the materials all coming from the neighbouring countryside.
