All of the bedrooms benefit from beautiful aspects either over the gardens or the church and are flooded with natural light. There is a one bedroom flat which can be found on the first floor which is in need of upgrading but would suit a nanny flat or staff accommodation. The second floor houses two cosy box rooms which could be used as additional accommodation.

Aswardby Hall is approached via an avenue of lime trees and sits in 12 acres of parkland. The house is surrounded by gardens on all sides, with landscaping and planting to the East and North designed by 6-time Chelsea Flower Show Gold medal winner and bbc Gardeners Question Time contributor, Bunny Guinness.
