Letting accommodation

All rooms have recently been decorated to a high standard. They all feature furniture and are equipped with good en-suite facilities. The high standards of the rooms are complimented with up-to-date equipment including LCD Digital Free view TV's, complimentary beverage facilities, bedside tables, chest of drawers and wardrobes facilities.

There are 13 letting bedrooms which are made up of 8 ensuite bedrooms in the main building and a further 5 housed in the stable block annexe. Room types are 1 single, 4 standard doubles, 3 superior doubles, 3 junior suites, 1 twin and 1 family room.  There are several ground floor rooms that are suitable for disabled use.

Owners accommodation

The current owners live off site but rooms 1 and 2 would be ideal for owners' accommodaiton and  there is flexibility to create larger more spacious accommodation by using the Bar/Lounge for owners and moving it to the function room, which is hardly ever used. This would create a very well-located Bar/Lounge next to the Reception Desk and provide a sumptuous 2-bedroom owner’s garden accommodation with 3 French doors onto a private rear garden allowing for all 13 en-suite bedrooms to be utilised for letting accommodation.


Car park to the front for approximately 20 vehicles, cobbled courtyard between main house and stable block, decked terrace area accessed from the bar/lounge which could be the owners private garden, should the conversion take place.  There are extensive lawns to the front, side and rear of the property.
