The sitting room boasts cosy sofas around an original open fireplace. You can store your coats, bags and shoes in the convenient cloakroom and you will also find a washer and dryer if you are staying for an extended time.

Champagne, chocolates, juices, biscuits and more can all be enjoyed from the luxury and carefully considered welcome hamper provided upon arrival, and if arranged prior to your stay you may enjoy use of the outdoor pool on the grounds of the manor.
