Holmleigh is a smaller but substantial house built by William Inman in 1869 for his Estate Bailiff. It is located next to the old church school in Church Road and was gifted to the church in 1884 by Mrs Forbes. In 1911 Holmleigh became the Vicarage.

In 1928 a new Vicarage was built in Church Road and Holmleigh was sold to Dr Bulmer, the first resident doctor in the village.

The church bought Holmleigh back in 1985, and it was used for office accommodation and meeting rooms.

Holmleigh was demolished in 2017.
