We continue to investigate the history and unlock the secrets of Rawreth Hall and what used to be Rawreth Hall Manor. See Through the Years for the history of - and references to - Rawreth Hall back to the 13th Century from various historic sources.
A Terrier Map of 1793 shows the existence of the building now known as the Cart Lodge and available for holiday let, recorded as a 'Granary and Hovel'.
Restoration work was carried out in the 1970s. However, whilst looking like a modern building from the outside, the original timber structure survives and is visible throughout the groundfloor.
The Cart Lodge was renovated in May-June 2012 and now provides a 2 bedroomed self-catering cottage for holiday let and short term stay. See the Accommodation section and contact us with your holiday dates to check availability and exact pricing as some limited dates are available to book directly through us.
Grade II Listed Barn
Within the grounds of Rawreth Hall stands a Grade II listed Essex Barn.
The Barn - complete with Boby threshing machine - is one of very few examples of an Essex Barn still in existence. The Barn is believed to date back to Napoleonic war times (c. 1803-1815), with one local history book noting "... the large historic barn at the Hall did not come until the Napoleonic wars when it is said that, during a boom in the trade, grain was stored there".
