Part of the 200 acre site is a working farm where guests can request to visit/feed the lambs and are welcome to look around the farm in agreement with the owners.
The grand entrance with sweeping staircase and pine clad hallway has many period features and has pictures and reminders of the history of the mansion on the walls. All on the ground floor this spacious 2 bedroom apartment sleeps up to 4 guests.
