The Great House bedrooms are having a revamp!
With new carpets being laid, beautifully bespoke curtains being added, new lamps, cushions and accessories, we hope these sleek and subtle changes will add the finishing touches to these already elegant medieval rooms.
As well as giving the rooms an update they are all being renamed to give them a French twist incorporating the traditional French style we strive to offer in our restaurant.
Based on iconic locations in the beautiful city of Paris the new names for our boutique bedrooms will be:
Room 1: Versailles
This room is named after the Palace of Versailles in the city of Paris which was once a royal residence and is famous around the world for its hall of mirrors. The palace is now a world heritage site and has been lovingly restored to its former glory.
Room 2: Élysée
The name Élysée links to the world famous Champs-Élysée, an avenue of luxury shops, theatres and cafes which lead to the Arc de Triomphe.
Room 3: Bastille
The Bastille was once a fortress in Paris which played an important role in conflicts of France in the 18th century. Its design was also widely copied to other locations in France and in England. Sadly all that now remains of this impressive building is the stone foundations.
Room 4: Montmartre
The charming hilltop Montmartre district, also known as “La Butte”, is a former artists’ village once inhabited by Picasso and Dalí, and home to the domed Sacré-Cœur basilica.
Room 5: Bohème
Bohemian Paris is the ‘petit’ Montmartre, cosy and quaint, with its vibrant cafes and bars, it has retained much of its original spirit and is still considered to be the home of the city’s writers and artists.
