The tour of the Hall begins in the splendid entrance hall with its impressive staircase, creating a warm welcome for guests. The large reception hall leads through to beautifully decorated drawing and dining rooms, the grand staircase leading to the seven spacious and tastefully furnished bedrooms. The tour includes all these rooms together with kitchen and former dairy. The Hall has been completely refurbished recently with central heating, re-wiring and plumbing and visitors will learn what can be done to refurnish and revitalise such a house on a tight budget.
Tours are usually conducted by members of the family and/or the garden curator. They begin with the Barn and an introduction to the gardens followed by a tour of the House.
2 – 2.5 hours each
