Set in six acres of gardens, the Elizabethan home of the Huyshe-Shires family is open to the public on a limited basis, but the peaceful grounds are worth visiting. Within the grounds are a woodland area, terraced gardens, and a 16th-century thatched summer house, in addition to a Christmas tree plantation and a late medieval hall.
Sand was rebuilt in 1590 from an earlier Tudor manor and fully restored in the early 20th century. The majority of the house is Elizabethan, and guided tours will inform visitors young and old, and regale them with tales that include the requisite ghosts! As part of the tour, visitors will see legal documents relating to Sand that go back to the 13th century.

Sand hosts an annual outdoor theatre event, with the stage located to use the house as a backdrop.
