The property is a remote, detached, early Victorian mansion built in around 1860, with ample private parking at the front of the property for up to 6 vehicles, and is set in its own grounds which extend to some 5 acres with approximately 100 metres river frontage.

There are also two paddocks which may be used to house your own horses if required.

On the ground floor Plas Dorothea is accessed from the the front door, which opens into a hallway with a large lounge and dining room leading off it, which has a traditional peroid cast iron open fireplace with surround and over mantle and also an attractive bay window. On the opposite side of the hallway is the original dining room which also has a period cast iron open fire and bay window, which has been converted into a large double bedroom for the comfort of our guests. There is a open panelled breakfast room seating up to 12 people which also has period cast iron fireplace, a second panelled lounge with bar with an inglenook fireplace and wood burning stove, door to staircase leading to the wine cellar (no access to guests), door to the boot room and access to gardens, There are two staircases (one originally for the servants from the kitchen) and the main staircase leading to the first floor.
