It’s a big old place so you’ll never feel overcrowded. A library packed with an eclectic choice of books has an open fire and views onto the garden – a great escape if it gets a bit noisy. The drawing room is enormous with bay windows, another open fire and a baby grand piano (which plays itself if you prefer). The former hotel kitchen has been completely refurbished and leads to a grand dining room with a wine wall. Whoever ends up cooking will be delighted with the kit, gadgets, 3 ovens, 2 fridges, wash-up station, prep area, big pantry – even an ice-cream machine.
The house is surrounded by a beautiful cast-iron veranda with a partly-covered courtyard so you can sit outside even when it’s raining, or have a barbecue. Beyond is 5 acres of garden including woodland, yours to explore.
Walk and cycle your socks off, explore the peninsula and return to good-sized bedrooms, all en suite, all with mini-fridges and kettles for morning tea.
