The house was constructed between 1910 and 1920 and retains
many of the original period features. The classic Art Nouveau
"Tulip", "Whiplash" and "Rose"
styles are repeated throughout the house, evoking that 'Belle
Epoque' period where design flair, style and colour eclipsed
the dark and sombre Victorian era.
The fittings, the furniture, the wall coverings and the fabrics
used in the refurbishment of Ardwyn House have all, where possible,
been selected to complement the restoration project as a whole.
Concessions to modern living have been made with the total
re-plumbing and central heating of the house, along with smoke
and fire alarms throughout for your comfort and safety. Much
attention has been given to supplying ample hot water and a
comfortably warm environment. Modern mattresses adorn the oak
or brass beds, and even the lighting is
in keeping with the period.
The bedrooms are all equipped with comfortable mattresses.
Extra blankets and covers are supplied should you feel the need.
The heating in each room is individually thermostatically controlled.
The bed linen and the towels are of the finest quality Egyptian
cotton. Each bedroom has the benefit of it's own en-suite bath
or shower room, each one differing from the rest. These large
bathrooms house a roll-top bath or a huge shower.
The rooms have a remote colour TV/VHS player, with a selection
of films available from reception. Tea and coffee making facilities
are provided along with some biscuits.
