Each bedroom in the Main House takes it name and theme from a beloved House of Hackney collection, from the celestial wonders of COSMOS to the pastoral romance of RAINBOW ROSE.
Luxurious yet comfortable, all rooms boast breathtaking views out on to the gardens while welcoming in their botanical beauty through our nature-inspired motifs. To ensure the deepest of sleeps, the beds (all king or super-king) are either antique or four-posters handcrafted by Titchmarsh & Goodwin, then topped with traditionally made mattresses – filled with wool, cashmere and silk – by EPOC Handcrafted Beds. Each bed is also dressed in fine linens by Peter Reed and, of course, blankets and cushions by House of Hackney. Lining the house are exquisitely woven carpets and rugs, the fruits of a special collaboration between House of Hackney and Axminster Carpets.
The ‘Flora Fantasia’ room
Occupying the master bedroom, ‘Flora Fantasia’ takes its design cues from the exquisite flowers in the Castle gardens, subverting the traditional shapes of the room’s furnishings through an unexpected floral motif. Pride of place hangs a painting by Cornish-based artist Teresa Pemberton, whose work (like ours) is rooted in nature.
The ‘Wild Card’ room
As the ‘mistress’ bedroom of the house, ‘Wild Card’ also draws inspiration from the fantastical gardens – this time contrasted with the rosettes of our iconic, perfectly proportioned leopard print. On the walls you’ll find supernatural, psychedelic creations by London-based artists Henry Colborne and Seana Gavin.
The ‘Tulipa’ room
Once again capturing the magic of the Castle’s surroundings, the spellbinding ‘Tulipa’ motif echoes the tulips that line the orchard each spring. The walls also bloom with beautiful artwork by Nicolette Vine.
The ‘Cosmos’ room
We looked to the heavens for inspiration on this room – specifically the star-strewn sky that glimmers above the Castle at night. Cloaked in the celestial wonders of the ‘Cosmos’, complete with a Bellerby globe and art courtesy of the Tate, this is a room fit for the most curious of explorers.
The ‘Flora Delanica’ room
Cosy yet regal in feel, ‘Flora Delanica’ is steeped in botanical beauty – mirroring the lush landscapes of Trematonia while honouring the exquisite floral collages of 18th century English artist Mary Delany. Flourishing on the walls is artwork by Nicolette Vine and Henry Colborne (who also hails from Hackney).
The ‘Rainbow Rose’ room
Inspired by its views over the rose-clad medieval gatehouse, ‘Rainbow Rose’ is adorned in a pastel-hued print of an English rose garden, set against the backdrop of a rainbow. A painting by Cornish-based artist Henrietta Dubrey acts as an ode to the theme of Mother Nature reigning over the Castle.
