The Manoir has been extensively renovated in recent years and is now divided into three luxurious, self-contained apartments.. The apartments are exquisitely furnished and equipped with every contemporary convenience. They feature both family antiques and ultra-modern plumbing and heating, with a choice of bath and shower facilities - truly the best of both worlds.
