According to A History of the County of Worcester (1913):

'The village of Earl's Croome contains nothing of any particular interest, with the exception of Earl's Croome Court, a half-timber house of the early 17th century, which has, however, been considerably altered and modernized. This was formerly the residence of the Jeffery family.'

The Court stands opposite the church, but can be glimpsed today in a more distant view from the west across the fields from the A38.
