"Ruin of a 13th-century Castle"

The Old Shute House found at Shute is the ruin of a manor from the Middle Ages, one of the few remaining manors that remain from the time. Dating from about 1380, it was built as a hall house by Sir William II Bonville and was subsequently expanded into a manor in the 16th Century. When the estate was acquired by Sir John de la Pole in 1785, it was partly demolished and replaced by the New Shute House as the residence of the estate. The ruin that stands is still the original structure, albeit with some very distinct changes. It is now maintained by the National Trust and in 2011, a part of it was opened as holiday accomodation.
