Facing south, like Winster, Lyth has unhindered views through bay windows of the distant moorland with its many hues of red. Directly in front of the bedroom are the front gardens, which are over one hundred years old with many mature plants including a beautiful magnolia tree and some fabulous Acers.
Interior Design – Lyth has an eclectic design mix between subtle ethnic prints, bold pattern, geometric stripes and plaid. Warm oranges sit with crisp azure blues, held together by ivory neutrals. Turnell & Gigon Aladdin wallpaper, Zoffany Harvest curtain fabric and Fox Linton silks adorn the bed.
Like Lyth, Winster faces south with views over the distant moorland and the front gardens; one of the prettiest views in the house. It also has views to the west through a lovely window next to the bed, showing terraces and ponds and woodland in the distance.
Interior Design – The textured finishes give the room a soft, interesting duck egg canvas, with a combination of Larsen’s textural fabrics with the woven silk curtain in a circles design, the sheer satin of the woven bedhead fabric, in contrast to the Wemyss natural strie silk of the bedspread. The chunky elephant cord brings in the rich caramel colour also accented in the damask and stripe of the bed cushions, tying in with the brass of the light fittings.
Cleabarrow is dominated by an 8-foot wide bay window, filled with cosy banquet seating from which to relax and view the distant mountains, woodland views, and beautiful sunsets.
Interior Design – Elegant, tranquil, contemporary country look with shades of gold, brown, light creams and pale greens. Hand-made furniture in maple and light oak. Fabrics from Zoffany, with Ecco accessories in display cabinet over period fireplace.
A lovely, quirky room, spanning from north to south in the eaves of the original house. Wetherlam enjoys the second floor to itself, and as such is a great hideaway with lofty views in all directions. The lounge area faces east to the old stables and pasture, the dressing area looks to the western mountains and woodland, while the bathroom in the eaves looks to the south over the moorland and southern gardens.
Interior Design – Pretty country style with lilac and pale creams. Antique rattan and pine furniture, Sanderson wallpaper, and fabrics in linens and silks.
A huge double window dominates the sitting area with views over the terraces and ponds, and down garden paths leading to the southern gardens.
Interior Design – Light and airy French provincial style with distressed oak cream furniture, Brian Yates wallpaper, and Jim Thompson silk curtains and fabrics.
