Castle Otway was built for the Otway family and it consists of a medieval tower house roughly 50 feet in height (which was rebuilt in the 19th century) and a manor house to the front. The house is said to date as far back as the Queen Anne period (1665-1714) and it is described as a seven-bay two-storey over half-basement country house.

The castle and house were destroyed by a fire in 1922 and one of the burnt door frames can still be seen (picture 12). Arches dominate the inside of Castle Otway and this gives it a very grand appearance. The original steps leading to the entrance can be seen a short distance from the house and there are a range of outbuildings and stables around the back.
