King Inas Palace is a substantial wing of a Grade II* listed former manor house, situated in an exceptional position only yards from the town centre in a secluded position with outstanding gardens of approximately 0.818 of an acre.

Built of local natural stone under a tiled roof, the property was largely re-built in the 19th Century from the original 14th Century manor house on what is reputed to be a site of historic interest and connected to the Anglo Saxon period and the Wessex King, King Ina.
