Once upon a time, there was a young girl named Gwendolyn …
This truly unique room was inspired by a former resident at Moor Cottage, as The White House was once known. Young Gwendolyn Coode wrote her name and the date on the stable walls every year from 1883 to 1890. Her childhood inscriptions were uncovered a hundred years later and inspired the fairy tale story, “A Rainy Day at Moor Cottage”.
To celebrate Gwendolyn and her story, the tale is written on the ceiling above the bed. Lie back and read the magical tale of a small girl and her encounter with the “little people”. Specially commissioned murals, along with Gwendolyn’s own etchings, illustrate the story.
Period features, such as the fireplace, combine with today’s essential luxuries. The Gwendolyn Room has a supremely comfortable bed and a most un-Victorian drench shower.
The room faces the rear of the hotel, however we think that its history and original décor makes this one of our most appealing and characterful rooms.
