Four Poster & Superior Bedrooms
A truly wonderful mix of grand furniture and little luxuries
1. The Rowton Suite
This magnificent Georgian Gothic room is the most imposing bedroom our hotel has to offer, and is usually given to our honeymooning couples. Overlooking the front lawns, it has a majestic four-poster bed, and a massive Jacobean fireplace, which pre-dates the room, and is carved with dragons which are rumoured to bring good fortune to all who stay there.
2. The Cedar Room
A spacious traditional room, it has a simple Arts and Crafts four-poster bed and an atmosphere of calm. From the window is the best view of our ancient cedar tree for which it is named.
3. The Melverly Room
This small double room is a little jewel with black velvet and orange silk hangings. From the cushioned window seat, you will see the gardens, the turret wall and the Linden Belvedere.
4. The Alberbury Suite
Light and elegant, we think this room was once the bed-chamber of Lady Caroline Lyster. It has a canopied four-poster bed, a sparkling crystal chandelier, and is decorated in shades of cream and deep rose. From the tall sash windows there are the most perfect views of the whole garden and lime Tree Avenue.
5. The Avenue Room
Here we have a pretty twin room with an unusual collection of furniture from the nineteen thirties. As its' name suggests, the lime avenue is visible from the windows.
6. The Baldwin Room
Another quiet spacious room, the Baldwin is made elegant by its' superb French bed which is skilfully carved with roses, and which dictates the simple Francophile theme of the decorating.
7. The Oak Room
This charming room sits in one of the castle turrets, which makes it an interesting shape. It's a favourite with our guests who love the heavy oak carved four-posted bed with its' cream fur quilt, giving all a slight mood of medieval splendour.
8. The Yockleton Room
In this very traditional room, the great oak carved four-poster bed stands in its' own alcove, perhaps remembering the draughts of ages past. Now of course it's warm and comfortable with red hangings and low lighting. It overlooks the gardens.
9. The Leighton Suite
Grand and traditional, this room with its' huge four-poster bed has gravitas aplenty. The fabrics here are magnificent, in dark red silk damasks and shimmering golds, and the chandelier is a glowing basket of richly painted metal flowers.
