The largest, most lavish resting place is Room Three, which counts lofty bay windows, a carved and curved French-style double bed, original cornices and two armchairs among its charms.
- Packing tips Cashmere bed-socks for padding around in; a copy of Persuasion by Jane Austen; comfy shoes for long walks by the canal and/or cycling gear (borrow wheels from Bath Bike Hire: www.bathbikehire.com).

- Dress code English eccentric: petticoats and pashminas; pastels and pocket watches.
