Bedrooms

The Meadow Bedroom features a sumptuous Queen Anne-style Four Poster double bed with subtle furnishings and far-reaching views across the Misbourne Valley. There is an en-suite toilet in the once-dressing-room to this spacious boudouir. The walnut finish to the bed’s mahogany wood (only from sustainable sources) echoes the era when this house received its Georgian face-lift, and also the Walnut trees that grow on Road Farm. Flowers carved on the bed and wardrobe link with those found in the chalk grassland . Grass is not only an important crop for farmers to support livestock for meat and milk, but flower-rich grasslands also provide important habitats for wildlife. In our chalk grassland, some of which we re-encouraged over 20 years ago, we have Marjoram, Moon Daisy, Bird’s-foot Trefoil and many other plants, with our special dell hosting hundreds of Pyramidal Orchid.

The Woodland Bedroom boasts the same wonderful views as Meadow, but with an en-suite April shower and toilet hiding behind the door in the corner. The two single beds may be enjoyed as they are or joined together to become a stately “Super-King”; please inform us of your requirements when booking. Bluebells in this room are a typical Chilterns woodland sight in spring, but a species unique in Europe, so we are proud to invite you to visit our own ancient Coneybank Wood to savour the scent and soothing colours.

The Hedgerow Bedroom holds a single bed with further pull-out single bed beneath. It has the one remaining Sash Window in the house, restored to working and draught-free conditions! It looks out onto the top corner of the orchard and hazel hedgerow as well as farm barns and hidden garden. Hedgerows provide a motorway for wildlife to move from one place to the next and we look after them by rotating the frequency with which they are cut or laid, to ensure there are always some with fruit and nuts. This room is reached along a small corridor off the landing and is beside the bathroom.
