On the ground floor of the property is the central state room, currently used as a living room, with panoramic balcony and access to the cloister. The ceiling and walls of this room have decorative wall and ceiling paintings dating back several hundred years which have been maintained in excellent condition. Leading off this room is a dining room, kitchen and the corridor which leads to the separate studies, master bedroom suite and guest rooms. On this floor one also finds the original chapel and games room, which similarly to the master bedroom and study, have access onto the cloisters.
On the first floor- a guest apartment and a staff apartment, both providing spacious accommodation and potential to modernise and add bathrooms.
On lower ground floor- extensive rooms which have been part-restored.
The layout with high ceilings, open plan rooms, wc's and provision of catering areas were planned for events and weddings. These spaces would also lend themselves to further accommodation or indeed spa facilities.
