The space is illuminated by a glittering chandelier, and the polished floor reflects the colourful patterns cast by the elegant stained-glass windows. To your right lies the formal dining room, a testament to timeless elegance with its large antique dining table that comfortably seats the entire group.

Adjacent to this aquatic paradise is a magnificent games room with a full-sized snooker table, ample seating, and window seats with stunning views. Here you will also find a large cloakroom and the downstairs WCs. For the adventurous, try and find the hidden door on this floor that leads to the old cellar and dungeon!
