The Grade II listed, Georgian house with large, walled-gardens and gated drives provides stylish and comfortable accommodation. Pool House, which dates back to the 18th century, was featured in ‘Twenty Five Beautiful Homes.’ The house, with its swimming pool, has evolved over many years while retaining the quirky character and delights of a period building.

The grand entrance leads to reception and dining rooms which feature tall sash windows and a walk-in inglenook fireplace. The rooms are furnished with both period and bespoke furniture. The dining room, which used to be a library, is one of two formal reception rooms. The restful drawing room is there for guests to relax and make themselves at home; the inglenook fireplace provides a focal point.

The snug, located near to the rear of the house, takes you back into the 18th century. Well appointed, it features extensive ceiling beams, large inglenook fireplace and original bread oven. The large country-style kitchen and conservatory have large wooden dining tables. The kitchen, pantry and scullery have modern facilities, including the use of an Aga during winter months.
