It sleeps up to 22 adults and is able to provide additional accommodation for children or staff.

Immediately around the house are formal gardens that were laid out in Victorian times. To the west is a private sunken salt water swimming pool set amongst tropical plants, while on a lower terrace is a tennis court of green artificial grass surrounded by a hundred Rhododendron bushes. The south facing terraces are built from fossilised limestone from Malta, but underneath is a very English Victorian garden grotto. A lawn for croquet, an orchard for apples, a vegetable garden for fresh produce all add up to the quintessential English country garden.
