The house dates from the late 14th century and has a fascinating history. King Charles II stayed in the 1670s. Most famously, John Bunyan, the author of “Pilgrims Progress“ (still the third biggest selling book ever in the English language!) was interrogated and imprisoned here in 1660. The house was the property of the Burwell/Wingate families for approximately 470 years.
All rooms have free toiletries, a Nespresso coffee machine and a kettle. Rooms have access to mini fridges with fresh milk. PLEASE NOTE-there are no televisions in the bedrooms.
The King's Room is a 17th century time capsule. It has a dramatic crimson damask state bed, 17th and 18th century antiques, and the hugest bath imaginable! The Tabor Room has an Anglo-Indian 1850's four poster bed and ensuite bathroom, whilst the Garden Room (2/3 of a Tudor great chamber) has spectacular ceiling heights, a Regency four poster and a private (but not ensuite-please note!) bathroom. The Wainscot Room is pastel themed and cosy. It is fully panelled, partially with 16th century panelling. It has a private, BUT NOT AN EN-SUITE, bathroom.
You are welcome to make use of one of the reception rooms to read and relax.
