All our bedrooms have Tivoli radios and digital televisions with built-in DVD – our DVD library is extensive and up to date. Please be aware, though, that we do not subscribe to Sky.
As well as towels, we put face flannels in the bathrooms. Our wonderful grapefruit soap (a big bar for the bath, smaller bar for the handbasin), shampoo and shower gel come from Arran Aromatics. While we do not put hair conditioner or body lotion in the rooms – as we believe most people pack their own favourite brands – just ask reception if you need some. Emergency supplies of stuff like shaving foam, toothpaste, toothbrush, deodorant etc. are also available on request.
Tea making facilities are provided, together with a little flask of fresh milk, ‘fresh’ coffee and a range of London Tea Company teas. A bottle of freshly filtered water is also provided in all the rooms.
Paints are from the Little Greene Paint Company and Fired Earth: furniture is from B&B Italia, Graham and Green, Heals, Ikea and the Conran Shop: fabrics are by Osborne and Little: beds are from Hypnos and Vi-spring: all rooms have Anglepoise lights on each side of the bed, for comfortable reading or more ambient light if turned to the wall: bathroom fittings are Dornbracht, Starck, Roca, Ideal Standard and Laufen. Soft furnishings, e.g. curtains, valances, cushions and headboards are made by the English Curtain company in Bury St Edmunds. Our towelling, pillows and duvet covers come from Richard Haworth and the sheets from Peter Reed.
