Lord Curzon was Viceroy of India, Foreign Secretary and a man with a taste for splendour. The bay window of the room which is named after him looks over Glenholme’s formal gardens, the chestnut trees which flank the drive and the water meadows of the River Dee beyond. Carefully-chosen vintage fabrics, predominantly in old “empire” reds, give the room a warm yet regal character. The room has an imposing, colonial four-poster bed, shelves of red books, and an eclectic mix of period furniture. A hanging cupboard with curtains, made from antique French, monogrammed dowry linen, affords lots of storage space.
