Unwind in the spacious drawing room or old-style library with their inviting sofas and armchairs and open log fires. Dine in style around the unique oak banqueting table that can seat up to 30 guests, then take a turn in the snooker room or maybe have a late nightcap by the log fire in the informal club room. Experience the life of more gracious era in this charming and beautifully appointed country house, along with great food, glorious scenery and complete peace and quiet.
