A wide, grand staircase spills down into the Dining Hall, where the cathedral ceilings and tasteful brick and stone construction continues. A highly versatile space, this area can be arranged to accommodate a wide range of group sizes and catering plans. In warmer weather, the terrace is a delightful location for receptions and cocktail parties. Connected to both the Great Hall and the Dining Hall, the circular lawn is surrounded by a generous swath of meticulously laid bricks, with a low stone wall creating a lookout to the charming meadow just beyond.
