The bedrooms are very comfortably arranged with delightful principal bedroom suite comprising bedroom, dressing room and large bathroom. Other guest bedrooms and a naturally contained guest wing comprising two bedrooms and bathroom. Overall, there are five bedrooms and three bathrooms, all well appointed.
