The entrance hall is dominated by the handsome cantilever staircase. The elegant reception rooms have period furniture and paintings.

The gardens are notable for an large collection of plants which give year round interest including snowdrops and Magnolia in spring, flowering trees and shrubs in summer and autumn colour from September.
