Inside there are 11 rooms which are spread over four floors and include the basement with the kitchen, housekeeper’s room, pantry and John Pinney’s cold water plunge pool. Visitors can also visit the formal rooms including John Pinney’s office, two dining rooms, a Library and two drawing rooms and a small exhibition on the Pinney’s involvement in the sugar trade and John Pinney’s slave, Pero.
