What you should know…

  • Please ensure that small children are not left to explore the large grounds alone and that they are supervised by a responsible adult at all times when near the pond and indoor swimming pool
  • The house is in close proximity and shares a side lawn with The Old School House, guests of the manor house will still have exclusive use of the indoor pool, games room and tennis court but it is possible to rent both properties subject to availability
