The property is discovered by entering through electric gates down a drive to the courtyard entrance. Enter into the highly polished beamed and oak floor hall with expectation as this stunning home reveals all its beauty. You will discover that each room has been designed with love to delight guests, stunning silk rugs adorn the floors, collectable antiques add charm to each room and beautiful hand painted murals adorn the walls in some of the bedrooms.

All the bedrooms are finished with luxury touches including fluffy white towels and Egyptian cotton linen.

There is a boat should you wish to have a paddle on the lake, or better still, go for a dip! There is much birdlife around the lake including Moorhens, Ducks and Mandarins.
