Doggetts Farm House is one of the oldest buildings in Edenbridge, built circa 1380 just after the Black Death. It was a two bay hall house with a cross wing. The brick facing dates from the 18th century and one can see two bricked up windows, from the time of the window tax. It was known as Church House from 1913, when the property was bought by a Miss Geraldine Rickards who also built the community room now known as Rickards Hall. On completion, this building was soon pressed into service as a hospital for Belgian soldiers during World War I.
