Sorry, that home is no longer available

House | 5 bedrooms | sleeps 10

Tower House is a lovely old Victorian residence offering generously sized rooms with their high ceilings, ornate ceiling roses, decorative cornice and polished wood floors. We are advised that the home has quite an illustrious history, being once owned by Alfred Lord Tennyson's doctor. In addition to housing local artists and gentry, the property was also used by the Langtry family, so it is possible that 'Royalty' once passed over its threshold! Immediately across the road from Tower House, the well known author Lewis Carroll, came of his idea for 'Alice in Wonderland'. Alice was a little girl who stayed in a small private hotel which was next door to Tower House, although sadly the hotel no longer remains.

The accommodation offers five bedrooms which includes a double room to the ground floor being adjacent to a shower room/WC - useful to those not wishing to use the stairs. The remaining four bedrooms (1 x twin room & 4 double rooms), two of which have their own en-suites, can be found on the first floor. There is also a family bathroom (with shower over bath). A particular 'feature' of Tower House is the 'tower room'. This could be construed as being a bit of a folly and is best described as a kind of 'summer room' constructed from first floor level. However, from here you can enjoy the lovely morning sun together with views across the area to the downs and a glimpse of the sea. To the ground floor there is an entrance hall, sitting room with formal dining area and kitchen/diner. There is also a utility room with washing machine which can be found on the first floor. Outside, there are gardens to the front and side. A driveway allows for off road parking, although Victoria Road is a quiet road where parking is not a probelm.
