The Nicolson Room

Sir Arthur Nicolson was Ambassador to Russia between 1906 and 1910 and then Permanent Under-Secretary at the Foreign Office. He was also the father of the diplomat, writer and diarist, Harold Nicolson. The room we have named after him is painted in predominantly soft greens – a large, colonial four poster bed with an antique Durham quilt has pride of place, and series of 19th century pressed plants from an antique herbarium grace one wall. There is a writing desk and chair, and a view of the wild, woodland garden, orchard and pond.

The ensuite bathroom is accessed through your private dressing room, and has a shower, soft, fluffy towels, and large bottles of Arran Aromatics toiletries.
