The Drawing Room

Feel free to relax in the spacious surroundings of our Drawing Room. Here you will find daily newspapers, books and music to help you relax whilst you are with us.

Tucked away in the corner of the room is a refrigerator which contains orange juice and bottled water - still and sparkling. These items are complimentary - so please help yourself.

Sheriff Lodge is now a BYO property - so Bring Your Own wine and champagne and we will gladly chill it for you and provide you with an ice bucket should you require it.

Children are very welcome in the Drawing Room but we would appreciate constant adult supervision of the little ones whilst you are with us.

The Bedrooms  

Each of our beautifully set-out rooms, all of which have views across the valley towards Riber Castle, have their own separate en-suite facilities and you have the choice of twin or double rooms with either bath or shower. The showers all feature 'Power Shower' facilities.  

The rooms also have hospitality trays with a wide variety of tea, coffee, hot chocolate and Horlicks. There is also a hair dryer and there is access to a an ironing board and an iron.

In addition each of the rooms has a television and DVD player (with a selection of DVD's in the Drawing Room for your use). The televisions have the added feature of being able to tune into the closed circuit television camera permanently pointed at the car park. 

To round off the individuality of each of the rooms they each have their own work of art specifically tied in to the identity of the room.


The Mousehole


The first of our first floor rooms, The Mousehole is beautifully decorated and appointed, having twin beds which are both seven feet long, and en-suite shower facilities. These two beds can be zipped and linked to make a seven foot long, six foot wide double.
Watch out for our mouse—you might see him disappearing into the skirting board (he's painted there)!  
Both of the beds in this room are seven feet long - when they are zipped & linked to make a double it is seven feet long by six feet wide. Click here to visit the place we got them from.


The Dray
This is the home of our very friendly squirrel. Fortunately he doesn't take up much space and he more than welcomes friendly guests. The Dray is also a twin-bedded room but this one has the addition of a luxurious bath in its separate en-suite. If, however, you still like the convenience of a shower this is also provided.
Both of the beds in this room are seven feet long - when they are zipped & linked to make a double it is seven feet long by six feet six inches wide. Click here to visit the place we got them from.
