This room boasts another authentic Victorian fireplace featuring it’s beautiful original tile surround. The room also maintains the original, unique cornices, covings and stained glass decorations.

A colourful character, Noel Coward was considered a close friend of Winston Churchill, Princess Margaret, Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother, Judy Garland, Vivien Leigh, Marlene Dietrich and Ivor Novello.
