The second floor plays host to the principal bedroom suite, with its walk-in dressing room and en-suite bathroom as well as a further guest bedroom. Two further double bedrooms, one of which is en-suite, and a family bathroom are found on the third floor. The kitchen, breakfast room, utility room and staff accommodation (2 bedrooms) are all at basement level.

Skittles was well known for her dashing looks, her skills as a horsewoman, and for being very discreet and refined. Among her benefactors were intellectuals, leaders of political parties, aristocrats and a member of the British Royal Family.
