We couldn’t resist the romance of an outside bath – south facing to catch the sun, deep and luxurious with hot and cold water, wonderful quirky lights from 1950’s USSR bunkers to add atmosphere – we hope you enjoy!
We accept one well behaved dog at a cost of £30. We hope you understand that pets are not allowed in bedrooms, nor on furniture and as the house is a strange place for your dog we ask that you do not leave them unattended in the house at any time.
The arrival time is 4pm and the departure time is 10am on the last day of your stay. With the heightened cleaning now required for your safety we would ask that you keep to these times. If we should in less busy times agree a late check out with you, then this will be by separate negotiation.

Holidays are about escaping and enjoying different experiences and this is one of those! A beautiful luxurious copper bath in its own secluded open cabin where the sun streams in during the day and you can see the stars at night. We have made ledges for your drinks, injected retro charm with our Russian bunker lights all to make it that special space for you to enjoy. We think the children might love it too!
The whole house is luxurious but this is up another level. We were aiming for luxurious hotel chic but also calm and peaceful to ensure you sleep wonderfully in our luxurious sprung beds with not one but two toppers. The slipper bath is romantic, the beautiful velvet sofa is wonderfully comfy to sink into altogether a great place to chill and if you are there with the kids there is space enough for them too.
We couldn't resist this amazing wallpaper - the first page of Charles Dickens', Nicholas Nickleby - written a few years before The Boatman's Reading Rooms were founded, it is likely to have been in the library of the house for the boatmen and the people they rescued to read. Designed by Andrew Martin its the perfect accompaniment to the extraordinary history of the house.
Stunning sea views from the sofa! Refurbished to the highest standard, every room in the house is a relaxing place to be with sea views from the lounge, 3 of the bedrooms and the Roof Terrace. Whats not to love!
