Luttrell Suite – Sleeps 2
The Luttrell Suite (dog-friendly) is on the first floor and has a wealth of period features dating from 1690; high ceilings, floor-to-ceiling wooden panelling, wide elm planked floor and a recently discovered cast iron Georgian hob grate within original bolection surround. Antique furniture and brass chandelier sit comfortably alongside modern armchairs and an impressive 6ft wide by 6ft6in Super King size bed. The large sash windows face South, from which you can enjoy fine views over the village and up the valley.
The brand new en-suite has been sympathetically refurbished with period-style fittings. It is half-panelled and features a spacious shower.
Bespoke furnishings including fabric by Sanderson.
Eco-friendly paint in Calke Green by Farrow & Ball
*QUIRKY FACT – Evidence of historic paint colours used can be seen inside the door frame to the en-suite bathroom. Having hand-scraped it back to the original paint, it has been sealed and permanently exposed.
Due to its Grade II Listed status, the installation of TV aerials would cause too much damage to the fabric of the house, so there are no televisions in our guest bedrooms. Please feel free to bring a tablet or laptop to stream programmes using our Wifi.
(This bedroom can be converted to Twin beds instead, if required.)
