To the left is the drawing room with an elegant sash bay window, ceiling rose and Victorian open fire place. To the right is the dining room with a sash bay window, storage cupboards and leads to the library which has built in bookshelves.

There is a picturesque wildlife pool surrounded by wild flowers and an attractive oak tree which attracts a number of species including swans, herons, moor hens and coots. The River Morda follows the boundary of one of the paddocks.

    The remainder of the lands is on the other side of the driveway and currently is grazed by cows and sheep. There is a second wild life pool which the current owners swim in the summer months and an area planted with a number of Scots pine trees. To the rear of the house is an orchard.
