Room by Room




The curtains and wallpaper are William Morris ‘Fruit’ pattern, designed in 1864. There's a traditional hand-dyed jute rug, a small selection of local books, occassional tables and storage space, and traditional board games.  And a wombat.


Equipment includes:


  • Dimplex ‘Oakhurst’ Optimyst stove;
  • Panasonic TX-40DX600B, 40” Ultra HD 4k TV;
  • Q-Systems M3 sound bar;
  • Panasonic DMP-BDT 180EB disc player.


The TV has Freeview live TV, as well as a variety of catch-up and other services via the app menu.




The swagged lighting uses reproduction ‘squirrel cage’ tungsten bulbs. There's a dimmer switch so they can be bright for food preparation, or subdued for dining. Worktops, cupboard and door fronts are all oak, with an Arts & Crafts tulip motif.  There's plenty of food storage space, and a small dining table and chairs.


There's all the usual kitchen equipment: a kettle, toaster, microwave, a large fridge-freezer, and of course, a wine rack.


The cooker is a Stoves Richmond Mini Range, which has a 4-zone ceramic hob, upper small oven with grill, and lower fan oven. There’s a built-in Beko slimline dishwasher and a LG F14A8YD washer dryer. The radio is a Goodmans Heritage 2.  It has DAB, FM, and Bluetooth connectivity.

The wallpaper is William Morris ‘Willow Bough’, designed in 1887.  The curtains are the same design, on a printed fabric. 


The bed has an Eve ‘cool foam’ mattress, with cotton sheets with a 500-thread count.  The radio is a Pure Evoke D2 with Bluetooth. There are two zip-together linked anti-allergenic microfibre duvets totalling 13.5 tog, one 4.5 and the other 9 tog.  There is a choice of pillows: feather & down, microfibre and memory foam.




The mirror is illuminated with a movement-sensitive switch, and is heated to prevent misting.  It incorporates a shaver socket, above a basin with a waterfall tap.  The shower is a Mira Sport with Airboost, with programmable colour-changing LED lighting.  A selection of toiletries from Romney Marsh Wools is also provided.

Dressing Room



The wallpaper is again William Morris ‘Willow Bough’, with a William Morris design tapestry, the ‘Tree of Life’ (also known as ‘The Garden’), first woven in 1910.


This room has a large wardrobe and chest of drawers, with a desk/dressing table and large wall mirror. There’s a double USB charging socket in the power point mounted on the desk, a compact Dyson vacuum cleaner, hair dryer, and small ironing board and iron.
