The interiors are a mixture of styles, ranging from the original Dutch-inspired rooms and furnishings to Victorian and wartime refurbishments. Mr Blathwayt's apartment gives a taste of what life was like in the 17th century, and is designed to appeal to all the senses. The house is surrounded by gardens, atmospheric terraces and an extensive 270-acre deer park.
