The Music Room is a very special conversion of a Grade II listed property. Once recitals and concerts resonated around the lofty ceiling now it provides magical and unique accommodation for two to enjoy a romantic break. Head up the steps and through the door to the huge open plan living space which will take your breath away, with colour shining through the big stained glass windows onto the vaulted ceiling and the shiny wooden floor, warmed by rugs and the wood-burning stove. Make your own music on the piano or turn on the home cinema projector and surround sound system, to enjoy an atmospheric movie. Sleeping arrangements do not come much more romantic than this, with the four-poster bed beautifully arranged on the stage where musicians once performed. The Music Room is a wonderful retreat for couples.
