A grand Georgian building with a large flourishing garden, the interior of each individually decorated room oozes character. Classic Georgian features - floor-to-ceiling sash windows and decorative plastered ceilings - have been fused with some modern and quirky touches, combining elegance with contemporary. Think sleek-lined mid-century modern furnishings, bright pops of contrasting colours and offbeat modern artwork.


A light-filled breakfast room with French windows leads onto a terrace overlooking the garden, ideal for alfresco eating, whilst a wood-burning stove ensures guests are round-the-clock cosy during winter months. Two comfortable lounges and a House-bar with local Ales, spirits and wines add a homely vibe.
