Inside, you'll discover a grand drawing room, library, dining room, chapel, eight suites, six further bedrooms and a kitchen. There's also three converted turrets, a wine cellar, an old dungeon, gatehouse, light-filled orangery, workshop, and a games room, all surrounded by an impressive moat that will make you feel like you've stepped back in time. While the property is peppered with historical features, some rooms may be in need of a little redecorating. From the wall colours to the oak flooring, the castle could do with bringing up to modern day speed.
