After a stroll in the wonderful pleasure grounds, the Sitting room with a crackling wood fire makes an ideal cosy gathering place for drinks before dinner.
The Dining room windows catch the setting sun reflected in the river in the evenings. The room is filled with baronial oak furniture and a gallery of former Knights including a number of notable eccentrics such as ‘the Knight of the Women’ and the ‘Big Knight’. Across the hall, the Drawing room has an Adam period ceiling, a beautiful Bossi marble chimneypiece with open fire and six long windows which overlook the croquet lawn – the perfect setting for after dinner coffee and conversation.
