Occupying the bayed-out west end of the Hall, the Library has stunning views across the Estate from the Paine Bridge down to Auberge du Lac. It boasts spectacular Chippendale bookshelves – one of two that were created by the renowned designer. The rams head conceal a secret panel that was used to keep the racier volumes in the collection away from prying eyes!

Now used for wedding ceremonies, meetings and intimate dining events, the Library offers a lot of natural daylight in a bright and airy room. The Library offers a slightly more intimate experience to that of the larger spaces in the house, making it ideal for small drinks receptions and private Afternoon Tea.

Perhaps one of the worst-kept secrets in the house, there is a not-so-secret door that provides access to the Ballroom. It is believed the blank space between the two rooms was designed so that the butlers could wait and appear immediately when summoned. The ceiling, like that in the drawing room, features a central painting roundel and painting reappears in the half circles at either end, while, in the corners elaborate wreathing frames slightly sunk panels each containing a tall figure in bas-relief.
