Earlsdown, built as the home for Lord Northbrook (founder of Barings bank) in the 1880s, has been a boarding house for St. Swithun's school and a hospital in World War II.

The rear gardens are an exceptional feature, with a southerly aspect, large areas of terracing and decking, lawned gardens and well stocked flower beds. A large garden office is located to one corner.
