Spanning over 13,500 sq. ft., the entire estate is decorated and furnished to honour its character and heritage, including a separate 2 bedroom and 2-bathroom guest cottage and additional outbuildings featuring a 3-car garage and two storage rooms. The grounds are a testament to botanical beauty, with mature flowering and fruit trees set against stately lawns, complemented by two entrances and parking areas.

Restored meticulously over three years starting in 2009, Clifton Hall has served as a beloved family home while also hosting tours and events, generating revenue to cover its annual running costs.
