The Willows Room has a King bed and views over Queen’s Park from the large bay window. The ensuite has a full bathroom with a spa bath.
Alas! There are no willow trees in our garden. The name comes from Ratty a large grey velvet rat who sported a lavender grosgrain bow. He always sat on the end of my Grandmother’s bed. I had him for many years after she died but he was lost in one of many house moves.
As a child I didn’t think a toy rat was at all unusual as I was in love with all the characters of The Wind in the Willows, hence the name. I expect he was actually something to do with the Rats of Tobruk who made rats popular symbols at the time.
The White Horse Room has a double bed and a beautiful old cast iron fireplace. During my childhood, a ceramic horse from the White Horse Whisky Company stood on the mantelpiece over the fireplace. This room has a full bathroom and a connecting door leads to an enclosed veranda which has two divans. These can be rented as part of The White Horse Suite (See below).
The Pink Poppies Studio is a studio apartment with a queen bed and an ensuite bathroom. There is also an eat in kitchen. It has it’s own entry and is fully self-catering. It is not part of our bed and breakfast service.
