Second floor, at the back of the house.

Definitely worth climbing the stairs for, with something of the raffish feel appropriate to a room named for C.B. Fry, the legendary Edwardian cricketer and all-round renaissance man. A lofty, spacious room with windows facing south and east, and luxurious furnishings including a hand-carved French-style mahogany bed.

Bathroom has double basins, large-head shower, separate bath and underfloor heating.

Second floor front, with free-standing bath in room.

Named for C B Fry's great friend, the Indian prince Sir K.S. Ranjitsinhji, known universally as "Ranji". An elegant batsman for both Sussex and England despite only taking the game up at Cambridge, Ranji more or less invented the leg glance and India's domestic one-day cricket tournament is named after him.

A lovely, romantic room at the front of the house, with flamingo-strewn wallpaper, panelling behind the bed and double-ended bath in the room. There is a separate shower room for traditionalists, with walk-in shower and views toward Claife Heights to the west.

First floor front

The original master bedroom of the house, named for the master batsman Jack Hobbs, who made a still-unequalled 197 first-class centuries in his 40-year career.

Spacious room, complete with original big bay window and cornices. Views towards Claife Heights and just a glimpse of Windermere in winter. The furniture is hand-painted, including the king-sized four-poster bed.

The lordly bathroom boasts a two-person walk-in Grohe rainshower, lovely VIctoria & Albert free-standing bath and underfloor heating.


Named after possibly the most famous cricket journalist of all time, this is on the ground floor and was the bedroom of the owner, a former journalist. It has large mirrored doors revealing a large wardrobe, shelving and drawers. Perhaps the room for the one in your party who always over-packs?!

It also has a splendid roll-top bath in the corner of the bedroom, as well as an ensuite shower room.

W G Grace

Lower ground floor. A large, light and airy twin or super-king double room, named for the sporting giant who changed the face of cricket for ever and became its first superstar. The bathroom for this room is right next door and as the only bedroom on the lower ground floor it's perfect for those who like a nocturnal snack or will be last to bed!

*Please note, because the quickest and safest exit from this room in case of fire is by the large sash window, people who cannot lift the sash or manoeuvre themselves - without help - over a window ledge 16 inches/40 cm above floor level should not stay in this room.
