The Suites

Fresh garden flowers, crisp linens and elegant furnishings provide a traditional welcome in our three luxurious, centrally heated guest suites, all with their own private bathroom.

Each light-filled suite is named after one of the architects involved with the design of the Lodge, and is furnished with antique furniture, comfortable armchairs and original artworks. Sleep peacefully under down duvets and mohair blankets in a queen-size bed designed especially for the Lodge, using a firm, extra-sprung mattress and a soft, deep topping cushion.

All bathrooms have heated towel rails and mirrors, plenty of thick fluffy towels, cotton bathrobes and a fragrant selection of luxury toiletries.

Helmore and Brocherie

The Helmore and Brocherie guest suites open out through French doors onto the terrace, where you can enjoy a glass of wine or early morning coffee. Fold back the louvred shutters in winter and lie in bed looking out over the lawn and garden, or sleep with the doors open and the shutters closed in summer to wake up to the sound of bird song.

The Helmore has its own ensuite bathroom with bath and shower, while the Brocherie has an ensuite bathroom with shower.


The Cotterill guest suite has its own separate bathroom across the hall from the bedroom, and is located in the original part of the house. It is a wonderfully private bedroom, with its own open fireplace.

“Superbly, sumptuously indulgent.”
