Self Catering House for All Occasions
This double-height room is inspired by the Arts and Crafts movement that flourished internationally in the late 19th century. A pause from the rush into industrialism, the Celtic and ‘back to nature’ inspiration of the movement loved the connection between artisan and material. The artwork and raised copper-lined bath in the bathroom are a dedication to Edith Hardwicke, who founded the Keswick School of Industrial Art in 1884 to help boost the skills and economy of the impoverished locals.
Indulge in the thoughtful elegance of the room, which embraces the Arts and Crafts ethic of a skillful hand and loving eye. The paintings that adorn the walls are by the talented Cordelia Saleeby, who attended at The Slades in the twenties.
