The uneven floors tell a story, whilst the silhouette pictures on the walls portray the identities of the ancestry of the estate.
A very stylish, modern bathroom accompanies the bedrooms, boasting a grand stand-alone bath with a hand-held shower and a lovely, spacious interior.

About the location
Crewe 5 miles; Sandbach 10 miles.
The delightful market town of Nantwich is located 5 miles to the south east of Crewe and stands on the banks of the River Weaver and the Shropshire Union Canal.
It is famous for its outdoor Brine Pool which is one of the few remaining in the UK and heated throughout the summer.
There are regular market days throughout the week and a monthly farmers' market showcasing the best of produce from the local area.
Nantwich town centre is pedestrianised and benefits from some superb examples of historic buildings, and is well worth visiting in spring and summer when it comes alive with floral displays throughout the streets.
Nantwich plays host to many events throughout the year, including The Battle of Nantwich in January, the Jazz, Blues and Music Festival at Easter and the world-famous International Cheese Awards in July.
Both Market Drayton and Whitchurch are within 12 miles and well worth a day trip to enjoy their history and architecture.
