The quaint but proud lady from the Victorian era has  been lovingly restored. The inside walls have been brush lettered in a

uniquely designed alphabet and original calligraphic pieces by international and national lettering artists are displayed on the walls. Crisp linen invites you to bed in summer and

warm duvets invite you to linger longer in winter.

in the Poplar woods. You are most welcome to come and experience God's beauty.
