V intage chandeliers hang from the ceilings, rooms have antique sinks and vanities as well as original Georgian timber floorboards and fireplaces. Specially made furniture, green velvet scalloped headboards and deep button armchairs sit alongside hand-painted Georgian-inspired wallpaper and William Morris prints. Bathrooms have rainforest showers, some with freestanding bathtubs, and tiling inspired by French lace, come with Cowshed products. If you really want to stay in style, book the (£800 a night) Grade II-listed Jacobean Suite and you get large emperor bed, your own private entrance and a freestanding copper bath.
