Principal rooms are well-proportioned and reception rooms enjoy views of the gardens, and from the north elevation, views out over the top lake.

Accommodation in total comprises: sitting room, living room, dining room, kitchen, morning room, and master bedroom suite, guest suite and four further double bedrooms upstairs.
