Rooms are named after Persian poets, with an assortment of books on art, gardening and other subjects on offer. There are no televisions. There's wifi thoughout but the philosophy here is that life is calmer without the relentless blare of the oblong screen.
Comforts are extreme. Beds are hand-made pocket spring in all-natural fibres or luxury orthopedic, with pillows of Siberian goose down. Beds are king size, though two rooms can be converted into twins for a small surcharge. Walls are painted in Eco-Limewash, free of the harsh chemicals used in conventional paints, and the shampoos in the en-suite bathrooms - where the showers are heated by solar power - are all certified free of parabens and sodium lauryl sulphate.
