According to Savills, which is marketing the property, it is "rare" for a property of such historical importance to come on to the market, particularly when it occupies such a stunning setting. 

Access to the property is gained by an oak front door which leads to the entrance hall. 

To one side is the study/library with fully fitted bookshelves and exposed timbers.
