The main house contains feature bedrooms dressed in Victorian style and the east wing, which was originally servants quarters, still contains all of it's features including the service bells which, with the original engraved plaque; are still in working condition today.
Also included in the grounds is the Victorian stable block. Garden House is the original red brick farmhouse, outside largely untouched and inside modernised without loosing it's original features and with the walled garden to explore is a real experience. St Mary's church is perched on an island within the 35 acre fishing lake and was made famous by Henry Newbolt's poem, The Tale of Fidele and the BBC programme "a passion for churches".
Also within the extensive grounds are the Gloucester Lodge Gates. Perched either side of the ancient wooden gates, these imposing lodges are referred to more as a medieval castle!!
