The dining room retains the original wood panelling up to "Delft rack height" and has a magnificent handmade fireplace with carved pillars depicting the monastic history of the site with the panelling above depicting the Newminster seal.Of noteworthy comment is the parquet floor which runs through from the entrance hall into the dining room.

An established maintenance agreement is in place and can be shown to interested parties. The immediate surroundings of the house are enclosable given the existence of a pair of smart wrought iron gates set within handsome mellow red brick gate piers. Convenient to the property is the detached triple garage, constructed by the vendors in about 2007. This mellow red brick structure was carefully built, with planning permission and building regulations consent and includes a studio or potential office or further flat at first floor level.The gardens at Newminster Abbey House are a key element to the property. They are arranged to the south of the house and abut the southern elevation starting with a beautiful paved patio area which acts as a sun trap and has an attractive pergola. To the west of the house is an area of woodland which provides the most fantastic playground for young children and is a haven for wildlife.
