There are three plush velvet sofas to seat 8, a couple pouf stools and a large TV and DVD over an elaborate marble fireplace. Long extending dining tables can seat at least 10. Pictures of Lady Hamilton and her lover Nelson, gaze from the walls opposite lavish papered alcoves reflected in vast mirrors.

The large fitted kitchen is topped with a black and gold granite and a central island with a large 5-ring hob at the center has 4 bar stools for drinks or treats.

Cupboards are generously stocked with crockery and cooking implements should you wish to cater for a large gathering.
