There is a utility/boot room with back door to the garden and a walk-in larder. The family room has a brick inglenook fireplace and a bay window overlooking the garden. In the oldest part of the house (circa C17th), the superb dining room has exposed beams, a window seat, inglenook fireplace and bay window. There is a study with views of the kitchen garden and a lovely new extension. Constructed of green oak and glass, it is a magnificent addition to the traditional house.

A further 5 bar gate gives access to the paddocks, and there is plenty of parking for horse boxes or trailers. A walled courtyard leads to the front of the house and paved paths round to the garden. There is a lovely York stone terrace which stretches the full length of the house and onto the South-facing garden. This has been lovingly landscaped with mature flower borders filled with bulbs, perennials and cottage garden plants. Clematis, Jasmine and climbing roses scale the wooden uprights and rose arches which divide the garden from the paddock.
