The accommodation is arranged over two floors with 3 Reception Rooms and substantial Kitchen/Breakfast Room and Utility Room on the Ground Floor and 6 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, on the first floor. Many of the fine period details have been retained, such as exposed beams and timbers and magnificent inglenook fireplaces. The property also benefits from an oil-fired central heating system.

The house is to the left with the pleasure gardens on three sides. There are paved Sitting Out areas to the rear of the Kitchen and the Sitting Room, which are partly enclosed by low brick walls and a Herb Garden near the rear door. The Pleasure Gardens are mainly laid to lawn, interspersed by path and flower beds, mature trees and shrubs, plus a pergola covered sitting area, a pergola walk covered by white wisteria, a pond, rose beds and a Wendy house. Tall trees and mature hedging to the front and the south-west boundary provide privacy and seclusion.

Turning to the left approaches the three bays of stabling. In the top bay there are 7 loose boxes (2 foaling boxes) with a rug washing room/medical room. Middle bay on the left hand side is a store room/feed room which is on the right and on the left hand side is a double garage with a pair of traditional doors, power and light. There is an insulated office with electric heater. The middle bay consists of 4 loose boxes, one being a foaling box together with a tack room with electric heater and meter for riding arena lighting. Purpose built rug room with electric heater.
