The accommodation to the main house comprises a pillared portico opening into a formal reception hall. The drawing room boasts two sets of French doors to the garden and an attractive fireplace. Beyond the drawing room lies a large office/study with steps down to a most impressive cinema room. To the opposite side of the dining room is the morning room with access to an inner hall and also the impressive kitchen/breakfast room. This boasts handmade bespoke cabinets, both at floor and eye level, extensive granite tops and the full range of modern appliances that can be expected in a modern kitchen. The kitchen has been recently extended into an orangery which opens out onto the substantial terrace. Doors from the kitchen lead to a boot room and also a large utility room.
To the first floor are four bedrooms, with the master being a wonderful suite with the bedroom having two sets of windows and doors to a large en-suite bathroom and dressing room which both have a balcony.

There are two impressive brick wings to either side of the house; one containing Little Abbotts Cottage, a versatile cottage currently comprising of sitting room, kitchen, separate utility room, integral garage and cloakroom.
