This bedroom is tucked away in a peaceful corner of the house with beautiful views of the gardens below. It is popular with house guests as it is part of a suite with its own dressingroom and bathroom. The name of the bedroom comes from the silk bedspread that has traditionallybeen used here. The bed was made in 1923 using posts from circa 1760, found in the brew house. The paintings are nearly all landscapes, which are hung in Sunderland frames designed by Robert Spencer, Earl of Sunderland, in the early 17th century. Most of the pictures are from the Anglo - Dutch school of the late 17th century. 174175 THE INDIA SILK BEDROOM
