There is a drawing room for Wolsey Lodge B&B guests (with open fires in winter), family photos, books and magazines galore to browse, plus a music/television room, complete with Bechstein grand piano waiting to be played. Bedrooms are classically furnished with an eclectic mix of Georgian, Victorian, oriental and contemporary features, plus, of course, comfortable beds.
