“We were shown into a new suite the owners have just converted from the old laundry. The result was impressive. There was nothing old or knackered here. A commodious sitting room was followed by a great bedroom and, adjoining it, a bathroom whose main feature was an enormous copper bath big enough for a threesome if you were so inclined.”

Following the drawing up of a long term masterplan for the main building and grounds, Kilburn Nightingale are converting the outbuildings (stables, potting sheds, orangery etc.) for hotel use. The intention is to preserve the functional character of these spaces and provide a different, but equally comfortable, experience for guests.

To this end the Linen Suite has been converted from the old laundry, drying and ironing rooms of the original house. In the sitting space the ceiling-hung drying rack is preserved along with its block-and-tackle mechanism. The bathroom is panelled in simple painted boarding and the specially made 1.8m diameter copper bath is reminiscent of a traditional laundry ‘copper’.
