An­nun­ci­ata Wal­ton se­lects houses that of­fer a grand en­trance

Dorset, £3.95 mil­lion

When Cromwell’s army came a-knock­ing (to put it mildly), their en­thu­si­asm for find­ing Charles I and his sup­port­ers was so great, they left six axe marks in the huge oak door of the El­iz­a­bethan manor of West Hall. They failed to gain en­try and the door re­mains as sturdy as ever. Sep­a­rated from the vil­lage of Long­bur­ton by a sweep­ing drive and listed Grade I, the house has eight bed­rooms and for­mal gar­dens with yew hedges aligned to make the most of the views, as well as a Grade Ii-listed gar­den wall around a cro­quet lawn.
