The house is entered into a reception hall with flagstone flooring and panelling. Both the dining room and drawing room are light rooms due to their south facing aspect and are rooms of particular note. Beyond these rooms is the fascinating study/games room with under croft with exposed archways, previously used as the kitchen. The final room to the south facing front of the house is the farmhouse style kitchen/breakfast room. There is a wide opening through to the utility room/boot room, where there is a cloakroom, access to the back hall and gardens. There is a second W/C to one end of the back hall.

On the first floor are 5 double bedrooms, including the master bedroom suite with walk in wardrobe, and family bathroom. The bedrooms all have several period features and each have their own character. Two further bedrooms/store rooms and attic is accessed from a staircase in the master bedroom.

The mature gardens are very attractive and include a large level lawn, paved courtyard, stone walling, vegetable garden, garden store, pond and a number of mature trees including 2 weeping willows and copper beech. There is an attached Coach House, which offers development potential.
