The hotel consists of the main hotel with 8 en suite bedrooms, a substantial bar/function room, restaurant and meeting room.

In addition there is a two storey one double bedroom coach house to the front, a stage cottage to the rear and a staff flat on the second floor.

The bar and restaurant are also open to non residents. Three different restaurant areas cater for varying sized groups and parties: Willow room is an attractive sun lit room suitable for private dinner parties, business meetings or working lunches. Breakfast for guests is also served here, with room for up to 20 people. The Oak room can hold up to 50 guests. The Garden suite has its own separate entrance from the car park, making this ideal for weddings, parties and conferences, with room for up to 150 guests.
