The Golden room

This former dining room is oak-panelled in the traditional manner, with a decorated ceiling and a parquetry floor. It was in this room that a series of twelve murals depicting the story of the 1588 Spanish Armada originally hung until their removal to Radley in the early 1950s.

The Jacobean room

The former drawing room in 18th century style with silk panels and classical moulded cornice, decorated in gold leaf. Its fine marble fireplace, reputed to have come from a French chateau, was stolen in recent years. The room has been provided with a small stage, so it can be used as a concert room.
