Elizabeth & Henry

Upon opening the door to this room of soft pink hues, you will be lulled into an era of elegance, a sense of sanctuary, a place where time has seemingly stood still.

Breathe in the beauty of crimson camellias beyond the window panes, the airy ambience of a soaring ceiling, the sheik shine of polished floorboards and the visual bouquet of delicate patterns adorning quilts and cushions.

Sink into the sparkling spa and muse for awhile before drifting downtown to dine. Sip an appertif or a warm brew in the sitting room later in the evening. Flick through an old book or enjoy some television before turning the lights out. Finally, fold back the covers and sleep soundly in the pillow-plumped, queen-size brass and iron bed.

This retreat has been named in memory of Henry and Elizabeth Doust, brother and sister-in-law of Alfred Doust, the original owner of Woodlands. Henry was a prominent man in the Bridgetown community and after a weary day, would have longed to languish in a room like this!

Sweet reprieve!
