Flagstone exteriors reflecting in the clear waters of the adjoining outdoor swimming pool, wooden deck chairs sitting on the pool side, and patio furniture in striped green create a scene that seems to have come alive straight out of a period drama. Apple trees, blooming flowers, and a variety of shrubbery abound in the enchanted garden that surrounds the property. The bedroom is reminiscent of colonial splendour with its four-poster bed that is evidence of the meticulous craftsmanship of days of yore. Antique bed side tables, plush furnishings, and carefully restored objets d’art combine to create a bedazzling display of old-world opulence. The room is rather spacious with teak flooring, carved wood fireplace with a stone hearth, high-backed chairs placed before an antique coffee table that sits on a traditional Persian rug are also part of this room. The marble-topped writing table with an antique wooden chair decorated with fresh hydrangeas in full bloom makes for a rather inviting appeal. A stunning ornamental antique bar fabricated in teak with matching wooden bar chairs could function as the ideal space to gather around with friends over a drink or two! Stepping inside the vestibule leading to the hall, the visitor is greeted by meticulously restored antique furnishings and objets d’art complementing the Medieval arches and wood panelling. Light streams through the atrium glass onto the Pompeii inspired marble floor intensifying the drama further. The sheer splendour and superlative style are carried forward into the other public rooms exhibiting cast-iron fireplaces and hand-carved Gothic chimneypieces. The Parlour, Refectory dining room and the Conservatory on the premier étage overlooking the rambling gardens and pool are fine illustrations of good taste and workmanship. The elaborate clover trelliswork in The Parlour epitomises feminine sophistication. In contrast, a masculine sentiment is portrayed in the Refectory with its coffered wooden ceiling opening onto a magnificent vaulted veranda. The remarkable Turret on the east houses the spiral staircase leading up to the guest chambers and the subterranean Dungeon bar.
Each guest chamber is substantial and supremely comfortable, enjoying a fireplace, an antique four-poster bed and armoire with exceptional views. All have en-suite marble bathrooms with shower cubicles, bathtubs, vanity mirrors and bespoke bath amenities. Conservative Victorian scheme is integrated with contemporary design to facilitate and enhance guest comfort.Further above the lofts at the terrace level, the Turret culminates at the Crow’s Nest. Here, the irregularity of the Castle becomes even more evident, with considerable chimneystacks soaring over the high-pitched roofs. The performance has now reached a crescendo; the Crow’s Nest allows rewarding 360° panoramas of the grounds and the spectacular Manali landscape. Perhaps the right time for a rendezvous?
