Lounges

Recently refurbished by world-renowned designer Martin Hulbert, the Lounges are set at the heart of our 18th century Mansion. Admire the interiors with a mid-day coffee, take in the breath-taking views of the formal gardens over afternoon tea or indulge in an after-dinner tipple, or two.

Interior Design


The Lounges are steeped in history and although recently refurbished, they have kept their character, with each room keeping it’s original fireplace, cornices and architraves. Martin Hulbert wanted to make the spaces feel more ‘hand-made’ and relaxed. He has hand-painted wall coverings, reupholstered existing pieces of furniture as well as sourced new and antique items from all over the world, the result being truly unique, eclectic spaces, each with their own colour scheme.
