Meals are definitely habitually interrupted by one of the manor’s celebrated four-legged residents, who poke their heads through the giant windows to politely request a titbit or two!
The house is five double bedrooms, faultlessly furnished in the style of their day, with large four-poster beds, traditionally furnished and striking Art Deco bathrooms.
