a highly ornate timber frieze at its base. The gable over is
decorated with a criss cross design. To the right hand side of
the entrance bay is a tall stair window with decorative leaded
lights set under a scalloped gable. The 3 bays beyond contain a
variety of 3 and 4 light openings. The gabled end bay contains
the Ballroom which was added c.1910. To the left are 2 gabled
bays containing 5 light openings. The 3 storey cross wing has 5

ground floor level is a single storey range in the front of the
cross wing containing 6 windows of differing sizes and a pair of
double doors with flanking windows. All windows have timber

The stair has carved newels with strapwork design and paired
carved balusters with lions feet. The hall is oak panelled to
dentillated picture rail. The oak room has similar panelling and
a stone fireplace with carved oak mantle comprising three
recessed arches over the fireplace, flanked by pairs of highly
ornate Ionic columns. Several suites on the first floor have
decorative fireplaces with matching mirrors. The hotel was owned
by the Maples family of Maples furniture and this accounts for
the high quality of the fittings. It was used as the Officers
Mess of the famous 617 Squadron during the 2nd World War.
