The house is entered through a stone arched front door into a spacious reception and staircase hall off which are an impressive run of formal reception rooms including the drawing room, library, dining room and billiard room beyond. All of these rooms enjoy excellent views over the gardens and mature parkland to the south.

The principal woodland gardens lie to the north of the house set around the historic fishponds.
