Room no.2 – Fairfax.

Inspired by the rich yellows of the 17th century, this split-level double room has been decorated in warm tones. For a modern twist, the wallpaper features silhouetted birds. Complete with a large wicker chair and superking size bed, it is an inviting, restful room.

Named after Sir Thomas, Lord Fairfax, Commander-in-Chief of the Parliamentarian forces during the English Civil War. He was given the nickname ‘Black Tom’ due to his dark hair and eyes, and was an astute politician and military strategist. The parliamentarian victory at the Battle of Naseby (June 1645) initially led him to become the military ruler of the new republic. He disagreed with Oliver Cromwell’s more radical ideas and publicly refused to take part in Charles I’s trial. Due to this stance and his honourable conduct on the battlefield, he was spared from Royalist retributions following the restoration of the monarchy. He continued serving as an MP and died at his home in 1671.
