Cotswold boutique gem, Barnsley House, has unveiled seven new-look bedroom suites, refreshed and rebooted ready for spring after a two-month redecoration project.
The hotel’s six Stable Yard Rooms and Secret Garden Suite have been reworked and given a new lease of life by designer Caroline Todhunter, who worked in liaison with The Calcot Collection’s lead designer Nicky Farquhar.
Modern, stylish and with design hints of the surrounding gardens, the new Stable Yard rooms are split across two floors, decorated in a soft palette of greys. Mosses, sages, mustards and coffee, set off by shades of turquoise, soft coral and red.
Retro watering cans; rows of large lavender pots; light bulbs on a web of ceiling-suspended, twine-like wires; wall-mounted light brackets with twig motifs and framed botanical pictures all give a nod to Barnsley House’s gardens.
The ‘Scandi-swish’ feel is echoed throughout the space, with two of the rooms featuring wood burners, stripped wood floors with rugs flushed-white, wooden-slatted wall panelling and The Calcot Collection’s signature ‘beehive’, mirror-topped, louvered side cabinets.
The rooms are set back from the main 17th century Grade-II listed house, which is home to a total of 17 bedrooms.
The Secret Garden Suite has also been redesigned. The private suite is home to a bedroom with four-poster bed, plus a sitting room that both look out to the garden decking and greenery.
The main ensuite bathroom has been lightened up with its former darker wood replaced by paler treatments and a statement mirror added. Powdery pale blues and creams and areas of exposed pale brickwork give a real luxury feeling.
Barnsley House is part of The Calcot Collection, which consists of the Village Pub, Calcot Manor, Lord Crewe Arms in Northumberland, plus boutique showstopper The Painswick.
