The marble, lofty ceilings and tapestries in this classic country mansion speak of the grace and elegance of the Regency years. It’s good to know that the rooms are very much in keeping with the gentrified feel of the place. You’ll find the 12 Historic rooms, all beautiful with period detail and statement beds, in the original house. Otherwise, Signature, Contemporary Royal and Standard rooms offer lots of home-from-home comforts. View our rooms here
