The Withdrawing Room

This elegant room has been recreated to its original 1830s proportions. It was designated as a withdrawing room during the 1850s. Here the ladies withdrew from the dining room leaving the men to enjoy their port and cigars. Remnants of hand painted Chinese wallpaper may be seen on the walls; the monochrome infill has been carefully carried out at the studio of David Skinner. The elegant fireplace is a nineteenth century reproduction of an earlier French design.
