Borwick Hall is an Elizabethan house of circa 1590-95, incorporating a 14th or 15th century four-storeyed pele tower with turret on corner.

The stone-built gatehouse is dated 1650, but still in Elizabethan
style.

Attached to the gatehouse is the long range of two-storeyed stables built 1590 to accommodate both pack-horses and riders employed by the wool-merchant owner of Borwick Hall.
