Old Market House sits centrally in the village of Broughton near Stockbridge and has played an important role in the community since its origins in the 16th century.

Two principal reception rooms are both spacious rooms and the kitchen leads through to a breakfast area. There is also a study, cloakroom and utility with a door to the garden.
