Delaportes Suite

The ultimate in luxury for two…


A secluded luxury hideaway with a mediterranean feel, 4.8m high vaulted ceiling with high dormer windows, and private facilities. The rustic charm is created by the hundred year old, grand shutters which welcome each guest as they step inside. The spa is hidden away behind the pressed tin shutters, which can be opened to reveal ……… Glowing rich polished French colours are highlighted with the century old carved French oak bed.

Mood lighting and the reverse cycle air-conditioning creates a wonderful mood and atmosphere. Soak in the two person spa, dry using towels from a heated towel rail. Wrap in the fluffy towelling robe and then curl up, cosseted amongst cushions and read, watch LCD TV and DVD, track stars across the night sky or just romance away the time with each-other.

When we first came to Ford House over 11 years ago we thought it was perfect, with nothing more to add. Over time we have grown from a B&B for four persons, to a Retreat for 20. Realising that perfection needs to be worked at, our latest room Delaportes, is a culmination all the best suggestions from our guests, and the many “discussions” between Jenny and Ken.

Delaportes is named after one of the surnames of our children and is the epitome of the old world charm of yesteryear. The Romanian shutters with their bespoke handles are a century old, and they impose their stamp on the whole room, with its chandeliers, and pressed tin.
