The name Staick is thought to derive from 'stank', meaning to dam. There may have been a crossing point of the River Arrow near the house, prior to the building of a bridge. The earliest part of the house dates from the 14th century. Later additions in the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries make this one of Eardisland's most interesting timber framed buildings.
Staick House is opposite the lay-by by the River Arrow.
