This attractive early Georgian house is thought to date from about 1730. It was built for the Nelthorpe family and passed down the female line to the Beauclerk family in the early nineteenth century.

Later that century and into the twentieth the house was occupied by a succession of tenants, including Tom Wintringham (MP for Louth until his death in 1921) and Margaret Wintringham (Tomís widow, MP for Louth 1921-24).
