Date:1810 - 1900 (c.)

Description:Originally there was Elizabethan mansion known as Botham Hall built on the site of the current house, surrounded by a deer park. In the late 18th century the house was owned by the Debank family, but on the marriage of Jane Debank to William Sneyd it became another of the Sneyd's estates in the area. By about 1810 the couple had built a completely new house to replace Botham Hall, which they named Ashcombe Park House. The property remained in the Sneyd family until 1936 when it was sold. There have been no deer on the estate since WWII.
