The Library hosts a wealth of accommodation split over two floors, combining modern day living with the characterful charm of the castle.

The property has a high level of fit and finish, with the breakfast kitchen having all the expected appliances. Features such as oak panelling, decorative tiled floors, an ornate fireplace, mullion windows and window seats certainly set the attention to detail.
