They all have the same facilities - hairdryer, trouser press and hospitality tray, spacious ensuite bath room, sofa, modern oak writing table, I-Pod stations, bedside tables, selection of lamps and chandelier and aromatic candles. In addition there are fluffy towels, waffle dressing gowns, aromatic candles and luxury spa therapy toiletries. Both of our suites can be twin or double and have King size beds. The Studio rooms have seating areas for added comfort and double Antique wrought iron and brass bedsteads. Some rooms have original fire places, most have original cornices and high ceilings. They all have large modern bathrooms with top quality features and fixtures. Four of them have a bath and shower whilst one has a large shower.
We have a guest lounge with squidgy leather sofas and a bar fully stocked just like at home - oh - and a log fire to sit in front of with a gin and tonic or tea and cakes, read a paper and chill. Plan your days - walking, strolling, cycling. Travel by train - steam train or moors bus enjoy the relaxed, laid-back way of life we enjoy everyday.
